The Noise Reduction Benefits of Plantation Shutters


Outdoor noise can be a real distraction, preventing you from sitting back and relaxing or even sleeping. However, the installation of plantation shutters can help reduce the noise and creating a peaceful ambience.

What type of plantation shutters reduce road noise?

If you live on a street with consistent road traffic, solid shutters may be the solution for you. The solid panelled doors will block out most sounds when closed, allowing your home to be a peaceful escape from the outside world.

Made from solid hardwood and covering the entire window, solid shutters reduce noise and allow for a restful night’s sleep.

However, if the noise that enters your home isn’t too harsh, full-height and tier-on-tier plantation shutters are both perfect solutions to blocking out external noise.

Will louvred shutters help to keep my house quiet?

Both full-height and tier-on-tier louvred shutters have movable slats that can be adjusted to suit your requirements, whether that be to increase sunlight, increase privacy or block external noise.

If your street is noisy, the louvres can be closed to act as a second barrier on the window, making it harder for sound to travel into your home. Unlike other window coverings such as curtains and blinds, plantation shutters are fixed to the perimeter of the window, preventing external noise from travelling inside.
