Wooden plantation shutters make a stunning design feature for your windows, and are a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to add style and elegance to their homes. Whether you are choosing a new look for your current home, or planning the decor for your next one, plantation shutters add a traditional touch to homes of all ages.
What Are Plantation Shutters?
Plantation shutters are a traditional, wooden alternative to curtains or blinds. Their characteristically wide slats and solid wood construction let in large amounts of light and fresh air in a stylish and visually appealing way.
Made from high qualilty wood and usually available in a wide range of colours, plantation shutters can be made to fit a variety of different shaped windows, and will add a high end, purpose built feel to room. Well suited to areas where there is low humidity, they make a great statement covering for large windows, and a fabulous focal point for communal areas. Perfect for period properties, plantation shutters will complement and add interest to nearly every type of interior design.
The Right Type Of Plantation Shutter For Your Home
Plantation shutters come in two difference designs – slatted, also known as louvered, or solid.
Louvered panels have wide slats that let in light and plenty of fresh air. If you want to shut the world away, the slats swivel to provide an almost solid panel, keeping light, noise and cold air out of your home. Alternatively, when the mercury rockets, your plantation shutters are perfect for letting the breeze flow through to ventilate stuffy and airless areas.
Solid Panels are the most traditional of coverings for your windows, adding style and elegance by the bucket load. The ultimate in window shutters, the large panels are made of solid wood and cover an entire window in a similar vein to the original casement windows favoured by the Victorians.
Perfect for houses with character, solid plantation shutters offer high levels of insulation against noise and near black-out properties for right reduction.
Period Perfection For Homes Of All Ages
Because we tend to naturally equate wooden window blinds with historical homes and days gone by, plantation shutters add an instant touch of gravitas to your home, regardless of its age. From a newly built family home to an industrial style warehouse conversion, plantation shutters can look the business in all types of properties.
Plantation shutters are fitted to the window itself, so investing in these wooden wonders is a design choice that will stay with you for many years to come. The solid wood design increases privacy and security in you home, and because of their traditional design, they need less maintenance and looking after. In some cases, they may even add value to your home.
