Where Should Plantation Shutters Be Installed?

A question we often get asked is: “Should I install plantation shutters on every window?” And whilst we would for you to benefit from the style and practicality of having plantation shutters on every window, we understand that sometimes this isn’t possible. 

At Totally Shutters, we offer our customers tailored advice to suit their style preferences and budget to help them determine where plantation shutters would be best suited to their property. Here is some comprehensive guides to follow:

Installing plantation shutters in rooms with high levels of light

Plantation shutters hold multiple benefits, helping improve practical aspects of daily life in your home. Sunlight pouring through your windows is a sight that we all like, however, this is often impractical. 

Whether you work from home and the sunlight is affecting the glare on your computer, or you’re someone that works a night shift and requires darkness during the day, plantation shutters in specific areas can provide the solution required.

Installing plantation shutters to every window within a room

There is no rule to say that plantation shutters have to be installed throughout your home. However, there are many homeowners who would prefer a uniform look throughout their property, increasing their curb appeal. 

There is no right or wrong with this option, perhaps you could create a uniform look by installing plantation shutters on every window downstairs rather than every window, this is completely a design preference for you to choose. 

Installing plantation shutters over a period of time

If plantation shutters are the aesthetic you’re seeking but your budget is staggered, why not install plantation shutters in one room at a time? This will allow you to stretch out the costs rather than paying a single lump sum.
