Plantation shutters are a timeless and elegant window covering option that adds a touch of sophistication to any space. They consist of solid, hinged panels or louvers that are typically made of wood or a durable synthetic material. Here are some of the benefits of plantation shutters:
- Classic and Timeless Appeal: Plantation shutters have a classic and timeless aesthetic that can enhance the overall look and feel of any room. Their clean lines and elegant design make them suitable for both traditional and contemporary interior styles. Plantation shutters can elevate the visual appeal of your windows and complement your existing decor.
- Light Control and Privacy: One of the main advantages of plantation shutters is their excellent light control and privacy capabilities. The adjustable louvers allow you to easily regulate the amount of sunlight entering the room. You can tilt the louvers to direct the light upward or downward or completely close them to block out light for privacy or to create a darkened environment.
- Privacy: Plantation shutters offer enhanced privacy. When the louvers are closed, they provide a solid barrier that prevents outsiders from seeing inside your home. This is particularly beneficial for ground-level rooms or areas facing busy streets where privacy is a concern.
- Energy Efficiency: Plantation shutters are effective at insulating your windows, helping to regulate indoor temperatures and improve energy efficiency. When closed, the solid construction of the shutters acts as a barrier against heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer. This can potentially reduce the reliance on heating and cooling systems and contribute to energy savings.
- Durability and Longevity: Plantation shutters are built to last. They are typically made from high-quality materials such as hardwood, vinyl, or composite, which are resistant to warping, fading, and cracking. This ensures that your shutters will maintain their beauty and functionality for many years, making them a durable investment for your home.
- Easy Maintenance: Plantation shutters are relatively easy to maintain. Regular dusting or wiping with a soft cloth can keep them clean and free from dust or debris. Unlike other window coverings, plantation shutters do not require frequent washing or removal for cleaning, making them a convenient option.
- Versatility: Plantation shutters are available in various sizes, colors, and finishes, allowing you to find the perfect match for your windows and decor. They can be custom-made to fit any window shape or size, including arched or angled windows, providing a tailored and seamless look.
- Increase Property Value: Plantation shutters are considered a desirable feature in homes and can increase the value of your property. Their timeless appeal, functionality, and durability make them an attractive selling point for potential buyers.
In summary, plantation shutters offer a classic and timeless appeal, excellent light control and privacy, energy efficiency, durability, easy maintenance, versatility, and the potential to increase property value. With their elegant design and practical benefits, plantation shutters are a popular choice for those seeking a stylish and functional window covering solution.

We carefully select the suppliers we purchase all our materials from, especially our shutters. We look at two main factors, build quality and how sustainable the material that is used to make them is. Our shutters are all made from the finest quality material and are 100% sustainable and FSC accredited.
Are they expensive?
Because of the craftsmanship that goes into making and fitting a shutter, the price is more expensive then other types of window coverings. However, years ago shutters were thought of, “If you have to ask the price, you can’t afford them”, these days prices have significantly reduced and have become much more affordable.
