Whilst plantation shutters won’t provide complete blackout in a room, there are solutions to help achieve this. Blackout blinds behind shutters is a great way to blackout 99% of all external light.
Blackout Blinds Behind Shutters
Blackout blinds behind plantation shutters are an excellent and cost-effective way to achieve near blackout. At Totally Shutters, we have worked with clients to achieve this approach ourselves.
The combination of blackout blinds and plantation shutters ensures maximum blackout and minimal noise for any room at any time of the day, great for nurseries, children’s bedrooms and shift-workers. Usually, honeycomb blackout blinds are recommended for this approach.
With blackout blinds, you can roll them up halfway and allow a small amount of natural light entering the room through the plantation shutter slats to create a sense of ‘it’s bedtime’ in summer months, but allowing a small amount of natural light for waking.
Plantation shutters with blackout blinds are a good option if you have never had shutters before and are used to Venetian blinds or curtains.
