Plantation shutters are an attractive window treatment. There are numerous compelling reasons to opt for plantation shutters. Shutters have a clean look to them and are quite appealing.
While good looks may have you ready to make the plunge, you may need a few more reasons to help you make a decision. Here are some reasons to consider.
No doubt, interior shutters are attractive. They come in a variety of sizes and finishes as well as mounting options. As an interior design choice, you can’t go wrong by selecting wood plantation shutters. They fit in with just about any décor and offer a clean, cohesive look throughout the home.
Interior shutters can be adjusted to let the light flow in. This allows you to have privacy as well as light. If you angle them in such a manner, you can even see out, but others won’t be able to see in.
Not only can you adjust the plantation shutters for maximum privacy and control the light coming in, you can open up the windows, let the air flow in, and then adjust the shutters for maximum ventilation - all without compromising your privacy. Shutters are easy to adjust. Simply grasp the crossbar and adjust the shutters.
Custom interior shutters are durable and built to last. In addition, most shutters come with some type of warranty. Because you won’t need to replace your shutters every few years, your initial investment will pay off over time. Plus, plantation shutters never go out of style.
Easy to Clean.
Interior shutters are virtually maintenance-free. Use a damp cloth from time to time and wipe off the dirt, dust, and grime. In addition, you don’t need to take them down in order to clean them as you would with other types of window coverings. A quick wipe down is all you need. The shutters have a larger surface area than mini-blinds making them much easier to clean.
Plantation shutters can help preserve the life of furniture and carpets.
You can leave the shutters in the up or semi-closed position to direct the sunlight away from furniture and carpets. The UV rays of the sun cause materials to fade over time, which significantly affects their attractiveness and useful lifespan. In addition to fading, fabrics can degrade. By keeping your furniture shaded, it will last longer and remain attractive and durable for years to come.
Good looks, light control, style and durability are a few good reasons to consider interior shutters. While installing plantation shutters in your home can be expensive, your furniture will last longer and you won’t have to replace worn out curtains or blinds.
