On the surface, plantation shutters can appear a little extravagant. What you may not know is that they have become increasingly popular over the last few years, not only because of lowering prices but because of the design aesthetic they bring to any home.
Substantial, decorative and functional, contemporary plantations shutters are not only built to last, they’re built to impress as well. If you want a window design that really says something, here’s our quick guide to why you should choose shutters.
Plantation Shutters Are Stylish
Blinds and curtains have their benefits but plantation shutters are certainly a step up in style and elegance. They are a lot more versatile than most people think. For a start, you can get plantation shutters to fit almost any space in the home. You can opt to install full height shutters, split tier on tier varieties, and even café style shutters that just fill the lower part of your window.
Add in made to measure shutters that can be created in any shape and you have something that’s pleasing to the eyes and substantial but long lasting and durable as well.
They Keep Your Home Better Insulated
One of the key advantages of plantation shutters is that they provide an extra level of insulation that will help keep your room cosy and warm in winter. In the summer, however, opening up the shutters allows you to get cool air into your home.
They’re Easy to Maintain
Contemporary plantation shutters are pretty simple to maintain. A wipe down with a cloth occasionally is practically all that you need. Alternatively you can use the brush extension on your hoover to gently pick up dust. It takes just a few minutes and your shutters are as good as new after you’ve finished.
They Cut Down Outside Noise
Plantation shutters are also great if you have a window that’s facing a busy street. The added protection will help reduce excess noise and create a barrier between your home and the outside. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference they can make.
Adding Value to Your Home
If you’re thinking of selling your home in the future, the addition of plantation shutters can certainly add that wow factor which creates more interest from potential buyers. That may mean you’ll add a little extra value to your home because it has such an attractive feature.
Getting Plantation Shutters Installed
While they may cost more than a set of curtains, the great thing about contemporary plantation shutters is that they are built to last. It’s worth shopping around and looking for a good supplier and installer in the first place. But you should expect your shutters to last a lot of years and that adds to their return on investment.

Whether it’s in the living room, kitchen, bedroom or even the bathroom, plantation shutters are ideal for any space in your home.
