If you’ve been thinking of upgrading your window treatments, you know how overwhelming it can be to find the best fit for your home and lifestyle. With all the choices out there, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of information. Luckily, this easy top 3 list will quickly show you why plantation shutters have been at the top of homeowners’ must-have lists for centuries, and which plantation shutters are right for you!
Any Shape, Any Size–Plantation Shutters are a Perfect Fit!
There’s no such thing as a difficult window shape or size when it comes to plantation shutters! Large or small, sharp angles, round windows, and even diamond windows are all going to fit perfectly, giving you a clean, well planned look throughout your home. Plantation shutters offer an easy, elegant solution for privacy and light control issues that are often common with hard to manage large windows, too. Pictured here are NewStyle hybrid plantation shutters, by Hunter Douglas. Made of a combination of wood and man-made materials, these shutters can feature paints or wood grains, with a satin-like finish that makes cleaning a breeze. Best of all, these plantation shutters add a stunning, customized look to the room, while being value-priced if you’re on a budget!
Control: Light, Airflow, and Privacy
Plantation shutters offer amazing control when it comes to directing light and airflow, as well as blocking harmful UV rays. Feel free to open your windows with simplistic function, and plantation shutters stay put. Adjust the louvers upward to direct light and stop harsh glare, or maybe adjust down to keep your privacy while enjoying a nice breeze. Plantation shutters can be adjusted for every situation–in a range of levels–from ample lighting, to near darkness, and everything in between! This photo shows the versatility and simple elegance of a hinged shutter. Bi-fold and by-pass options are also available, so you can be assured you’ll get the option that best suits your lifestyle needs. The Palm Beach Polysatin plantation shutters shown here were designed with high heat and humidity in mind. Made of a polysatin compound, they’re guaranteed to never crack, warp, peel, or yellow–meaning they’re going to be a choice you’re proud of for years to come!
Economical and Efficient
The elegant touch and classic beauty of plantation shutters is easy to see, but one of the best features of these amazing window coverings is actually something you can’t see! Saving energy is important to everyone, and the efficiency of plantation shutters is a great way to keep costs down all year long. From adding insulation and keeping those cold drafts from seeping into your home in the winter, to directing and taming the direct light that overheats your room in the summer, plantation shutters have you covered. In addition to causing you to spend more time with the AC on, direct sunlight can damage your valued furniture, art and decor, and even fade the colors of your walls! Hunter Douglas plantation shutters can be adjusted to block up to 99% of those harmful UV rays, meaning your furniture and decor will last longer, too! The classic Heritance hardwood plantation shutters shown in this photo are a brilliant blend of strong and beautiful! Made with the highest level of craftsmanship and care, and constructed in genuine hardwood with strong dovetail joinery, these are a timeless and durable choice. Heritance shutters are available in six different artisanal techniques, such as glazed, distressed, and textured, meaning you can find the perfect look for the ambiance you want!
