The Timeless Appeal of Installing Plantation Shutters

When it comes to enhancing the aesthetics and functionality of your home, shutters stand out as a timeless and versatile choice. Not only have shutters become synonymous with sophistication and style, but they are widely known for their privacy and insulation benefits. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of plantation shutters and more about the different types of shutters that are available.

Control Lighting

One of the standout features of shutters is the ability to control natural light. These elegant fixtures allow you to adjust the louvres, creating a play of sunlight that can transform the ambiance of any room.

Whether you want a bright and airy space or a more subdued, cozy atmosphere, shutters can provide you with the power to customise the lighting to suit your mood and needs.

Control the Privacy in Each Room

Privacy is a paramount concern for every homeowner, and shutters offer an elegant solution. With a simple tilt of the louvres, you can effortlessly regulate the level of privacy in your home.

Plantation shutters, with their angled louvres, provide an additional layer of seclusion, allowing you to enjoy the comfort of your space without compromising on privacy.

In addition to this you have the option of having a mid-rail or a split tilt rod to allow you to open the top and bottom independently. This allows privacy whilst at the same time having the benefit of natural day light.

Shutters offer insulation and energy efficiency

Beyond their aesthetic charm, shutters highly contribute to the insulation of your home. In colder months, they act as a barrier against the chilly outdoor air, helping to maintain a cozy indoor environment. According to English Heritage, shutters offer 58% heat loss reduction in a home, making them an energy-efficient choice for homeowners, leading to potential savings on heating costs.

Conversely, during the warmer seasons, shutters can be adjusted to allow a gentle breeze while keeping the sunlight at bay.

Timeless and Classic Design

The appeal of plantation shutters lies not only in their functionality but also in their timeless design. Inspired by classic architectural styles, the clean lines and graceful proportions of plantation shutters make them a design element that seamlessly integrates with various interior styles, ensuring a lasting aesthetic appeal.

Easy to Keep Clean

Unlike traditional curtains or blinds that may accumulate dust, shutters are easy to clean and maintain. A simple wipe with a damp cloth is often sufficient to keep them looking pristine. This feature not only contributes to a healthier indoor environment but also saves you time and effort in the long run.

Customised to any shape or size window and door

If you have a unique shaped window or door, shutters can be customised to fit seamlessly to any shape or size.

A Splash of Colour

While the classic white plantation shutters are a perennial favourite, there’s no shortage of variety when it comes to colours and finishes.

Our sustainably sourced Hardwood collection comes in 25 luxurious colours made by hand. Within this collection, you’ll find an array of choices, including 13 painted tones spanning from pristine white to captivating black, 12 natural wood stains, and a unique white textured wood grain that beautifully mirrors the patterns found in nature. Moreover, this range offers a personalised touch, allowing you to seamlessly align your window dressings with your interior decor with a range of bespoke colour options.

Add Value to Your Home

Shutters add value to your home due to their timeless design, and the fact that they are custom built to each window. They enhance both the interior and exterior appeal of your home adding to curb appeal to attract potential home buyers.

However, it is important to be cautious of cheaper alternatives of window shutters. While they may seem enticing due to their affordability, their lower price often signifies inferior manufacturing, resulting in a shorter lifespan for the shutters. Pay attention to details in the shutter finishes, such as the absence of non-twist core centres and mortise and tenon joinery. These elements contribute to the creation of a durable, sturdy shutter product that not only elevates your home’s value but also ensures long-lasting quality.
