Plantation Shutters: The Many Benefits

by | May 3, 2019 | Screen Store

If you’re like many homeowners, you want something to cover the windows. While window coverings can help you control sunlight and other factors, a lot of people dislike curtains and Venetian blinds.

Curtains tend to be too sheer to keep out all the sunlight while Venetian blinds are usually made of plastic and are easily damaged. Plantation shutters do look similar to Venetian blinds, but they are made with sturdy materials, such as fauxwood or timber. The base or frame of the shutter can be constant in the window while the louvre slats can be raised or lowered as you see fit. Therefore, you can still control light and air while having something that looks beautiful.

Plantation shutters make it easy for you to have privacy or open up the house for airflow. On breezy days, you may want to turn off the air conditioning and open the windows. You can do this easily by opening the shutter system fully to open the windows. If you have a security screen in place, you don’t have to worry about intruders and bugs getting inside. Then, you can shut the shutter and open the slats to your desired spacing to let light and air into the house.
