Plantation shutters have been around for hundreds of years, and they’re as popular as ever. In fact, back in 2015, plantation shutters were classed as Britain’s number one window dressing of choice and sales have been continuing to rise with no intention of slowing down.
Here are a few reasons why plantation shutters are increasing in popularity:
Their benefits are endless
The benefits of plantation shutters are endless. They allow you to control the amount of privacy, particularly handy for road facing rooms. They allow you to control the amount of light entering your home by simply positioning the slats. Alongside that, they also provide an extra layer of security and act as a great insulator helping you reduce your energy bill.
They add value to your property
Plantation shutters also add kerb appeal to your home and value to your property. Plantation shutters are long-lasting and help your home stand out from the others and match any interior decor, so future home occupants won’t need to change the window coverings to match their interior design choices.
They’re easy to maintain
Another thing that makes plantation shutters so popular is that they’re easy to maintain. When it comes to cleaning, all you will need to do is wipe down the shutter panels and louvres with a soft clean cloth or feather duster.
