Plantation shutters are an excellent window dressing option that will transform the look of your home. They are a timeless style that can be used with either modern or traditional styles and they also offer great kerb appeal. They are easy to clean, can be adjusted, and come in a variety of options for panel number, louvre size, hinging, frame, tilt rod, and colours. These features make plantation shutters one of the most popular choices for new and remodelled homes. They are a great addition to any room of the house and can help increase the value of your property.
A plantation shutter is a window covering that can be opened or closed, similar to a blind but they are a permanent fixture in your windows. The slats can be moved independently to allow light in and provide privacy when required. They are ideal for a range of different windows from bay windows to a standard window in a contemporary or traditional design.
They have a timeless design that looks stunning in any room, from the bathroom to the dining room and can be installed on all types of windows including sash, bay, tilt and turn, and casement. They are easy to clean and maintain, with the slats able to be wiped down with a damp cloth. They are a good energy saving option for your home as they can be shut in the winter to block out cold air from entering through windows and doors. They also provide a degree of privacy as you can only see through the slats when they are fully open.
Shutters can be painted in any Farrow & Ball or Dulux trade colour so you can blend them into your scheme beautifully or make a statement with them in a bold accent colour. You can also choose to have them made from wood, polymer/faux wood or composite. Wood plantation shutters are the most expensive but they are also the most attractive and durable. They can be customised to withstand environmental factors such as humidity, which can affect other materials.
Composite and polymer/faux wood shutters are a good middle ground between price and quality. They are made from a mix of materials such as MDF and polypropylene which is an extremely durable material. They are a great choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and wetrooms as they are fully waterproof, meaning they will not warp or discolour in harsh conditions. They are available in a range of finishes such as gloss, matt, and satin to suit any interior.
