Why Plantation Shutters?

Plantation shutters are not only a stylish solution to your window dressing needs, but they can also increase the value of your home, save you money on your energy bills and will often last a lot longer than traditional window coverings. Look below as to why we believe plantation shutters are the must have window furnishing.

Control the temperature in your room

Whilst looking stylish and contemporary, plantation shutters will also help to reduce the cost of heating your house and with the current increase in utility bills this is becoming a key aspect of why people are choosing to opt with plantation shutters. Windows are the primary source of heat loss from a room and recent studies have shown that interior plantation shutters can reduce heat loss by up to 64%! We can offer both MDF and Hardwood shutter ranges unlike many other companies in the market.

Plantation shutters not only help to keep the heat in the room during the winter, but they help keep the room cooler during the hot summer months. Recent studies have shown that shutters can reduce Solar Energy Transmittance (Gtot) from 0.85, with a standard double-glazed window, all the way down to 0.15. 

Due to the natural design of plantation shutters, louvres can be operated separately in various sections of the installation, unlike traditional blinds and curtains which give very little flexibility on how much or little of the window is covered. The major advantage of this is the freedom to block out glaring sun light in part of the window, whilst allowing natural light and air to flow through other parts.

Improve the value of your home

Installing plantation shutters in your home is a considered purchase as they are often a permanent fixture in the house for over a decade. Due to this, the appearance of plantation shutters when selling a property can not only add to the overall kerb appeal but can be an incentive for prospective buyers. This is a key consideration for customers when choosing plantation shutters in their home. Whilst the initial cost may be higher than a traditional window covering, the long-term benefits can often outweigh the initial outlay.

Easy To maintain

A common issue with traditional window coverings such as curtains and blinds are the maintenance of the product. Whether this be having to steam clean curtains or have full blind installations replaced due to faulty or broken parts. A major advantage of having plantation shutters is not only the robust nature of them, making them difficult to break, but the convenience of being able to replace small parts of the installation at a fraction of the price of the product, something not associated with traditional blinds. This therefore gives shutters generally a much longer life span than traditional blinds. Where as blinds and curtains often need removing and cleaning, plantation shutters are UV sun protected and do not absorb dirt, therefore just requiring a dust down every so often and a wipe down to remove any spills or fingerprints.

Bespoke made

Ever seen a window that looked messy? Have you ever looked at the blinds and noticed they don’t fall in line with the window? This is where plantation shutters excel. When measuring plantation shutters, the window is measured exactly to each point to allow us to make a bespoke product for your window. This creates a seamless and clean look from both the inside and outside with the lines of the shutters falling in line with the lines of the window. Bay windows benefit greatly from this aspect. Plantation shutters will be measured and installed to complement the shape of your window covering gaps in between the window and at the ends, unlike traditional blinds which are often in sections causing them to look messy and leaving a high level of light leakage in the room.
