Every window needs some type of window covering: from decorative curtains to functional horizontal blinds, window treatments add privacy and allow for light control, while providing an attractive appearance. But some window treatments can do even more - plantation shutters are an investment in your home and in energy efficiency. If you're ready to get blinds that do more, it's time for interior shutters.
Plantation or interior shutters provide timeless beauty to your home and all the benefits of other shades or shades. With louvered shutters, shutters add privacy and allow you to control the light entering your home. However, unlike other types of blinds, they also provide superior insulation. The unique construction of plantation shutters provides thermal insulation for your windows, helping to keep energy costs low in both winter and summer. Some studies show that when installed in a double pane window they can create an R-value of 6! And in addition to thermal insulation, they can also provide sound insulation, which is ideal for avoiding road noise from busy streets or noise from loud neighbors.
In addition, the classic beauty of wood plantation shutters not only brings traditional sophistication to your home, but can also increase its resale value. The long-term durability and good looks of interior shutters are incredibly popular with home buyers, which means your return on investment will likely be much higher than with other window covering options.
They can be made to fit a wide variety of window shapes and sizes and come in different louver widths, allowing for customization to suit your home and décor. Available in real wood and composite, plantation shutters offer a beautiful stained and painted appearance, perfect for any decor. In fact, they're also ideal for odd-shaped windows. The specially shaped shutters offer the same excellent appearance and performance as traditional rectangular models, perfect for decorative windows that are difficult to cover. Some options include front, hexagon, quadrant, oval, and arches - contact your window covering manufacturer for details.
