Improve Your Kerb Appeal with Plantation Shutters


A pretty exterior isn’t just easy on the eyes when it comes to selling your home, your home’s kerb appeal can make or break a sale.

It takes potential buyers just eight seconds to decide whether they like or dislike your property. If you’re looking to sell your home or have it valued, kerb appeal can be worth almost 10% of your home’s value, so it’s worth sprucing up the front of your home before letting agents and buyers view it.

Improving your kerb appeal

Along with cleaning your windows and front doors, weeding and sweeping the ground, highlighting your exterior’s best features will help to increase your property’s home appeal.

Often curtains can look good on the inside but the view from the outside can tell a different story, giving a terrible first impression. Net or shabby curtains can appear dated and this impression from the outside can taint the rest of the visit.

First impressions are very hard to override. If your house looks dated from the outside, people will expect the rest of the house to be dated too before they have walked through the front door.

Will plantation shutters add value to my home?

Stylish yet practical, plantation shutters set the highest standard of style in terms of window dressings. Plantation shutters help make your home stand out when listed on the market.

Not only do they offer privacy, light and style to your home both inside and out, but they come with the property as they are made-to-measure which means the buyers won’t have to invest in the window dressing themselves.


Maximising the kerb appeal of your home is essential if you’re thinking of selling your property in the future. For more information, or to book your free, no obligation in-house survey, contact Totally Shutters today on 0203 960 6963. All plantation shutters come with a 5-year guarantee.
