Do Plantation Shutters Increase Home Security?

Plantation shutters bring many great benefits to your home, such as they help to reduce energy bills, increase the value of your property, reduce outside noise and increase light control. But did you know that plantation shutters can increase your home security too?

Approximately one-fifth of all unwanted household entries are through a window. Knowing this, it’s important to make your windows as secure as possible. Here is how shutters can help provide you with the secure window coverings you’ve been looking for:


Compared to blinds and curtains, plantation shutters are more solid and robust. They are fixed to your window recess and intended to be a permanent fixture. Intruders would have to be extremely clever to get past your plantation shutters and keep noise to a minimum so as not to disturb you or your neighbours.


Plantation shutters give you complete control over how much light can enter your home and privacy levels. As such, potential thieves cannot peer into your home and see your valuables.


Plantation shutters are bespoke, made-to-measure and can be installed anywhere in your home. This means you can secure every window and be safe in the knowledge that your home is safe and looks fantastic too.
