Plantation shutters have a high aesthetic value, as their wide louvers let in more light than
other shutters. They insulate your home from heat and cold much very efficiently,
saving you more money on your energy bill than mini blinds, drapes, or
window shades. As plantation shutters are custom made to fit the size
and shape of your windows, they are a permanent upgrade that will remain
in your home for its lifetime, and add value to your home if you sell.
Plantation Shutters Create a Classic Look
The timeless style of plantation shutters complements a wide variety of
Custom-built plantation shutters tend to look best on New England Homes with a country decor and can be
customized in size, style and design to perfectly match the existing aesthetic
of your home. Shutters come in a variety of louver widths to complement
the size and shape of your windows, and can even be designed with two
panels that open in the center, or one panel that opens on the side.
Plantation Shutters Can Lower Your Energy Bills
The louvers of plantation shutters allow you to regulate how much light
enters your house. When fully closed, plantation shutters can effectively
double the insulation provided by just your window alone. Custom-built
shutters create a tight barrier around your window that prevents your
house’s heating or cooling from escaping, and ensures that the hot
or cold air outside won’t enter.
Plantation Shutters Are Available in a Variety of Materials
Local stores that offer custom window treatments generally sell shutters
made of wood, vinyl, synthetic or composite materials. Each material has
advantages and disadvantages. Polywood shutters, which are made from a
recycled wood substitute, insulate homes 70% more efficiently than other
shutters on the market. They are a beautiful, durable, and low-maintenance
way to increase your home’s value and lower your electric bill.
