Reasons to Consider Plantation Blinds

by | Jul 16, 2018 | Screen Store

Plantation blinds look amazing in almost any home and décor setting. They use multiple panels and small slats, tilted either upward or down. Many homeowners prefer them because they add privacy and still let in some natural light without being overpowering.

If you’ve never had them in a home before, you may wonder why they’re so popular. For one, they are lightweight, which means you probably won’t need to change the frames. They’re also insulating, which means they keep the house more comfortable regardless of the season.

Plantation blinds are a low-maintenance option for those who don’t want to clean the windows every day. While mini-blinds and drapes have to be changed and washed, these shutters don’t. They’re made of wood or faux wood, but they’re designed in such a way so as not to warp. Plus, they only require a dusting once in a while to keep them looking their best. If you do happen to spill something on the shutters, you can wipe it off with a damp cloth without fear of ruining the finish.

At SP Screens, they have plantation blinds that are fully customisable. The first step is to choose the material you want, such as Paulownia Timber or Fauxwood. Then, you choose your colour and the design. They’ve got many colours from which to choose for both Fauxwood and Timber options. You also get to choose the blade size and shape, as well as the opening (such as bi-fold, hinged, or sliding).

Once you’ve had all the fun of choosing what you want, you can let their professional team do all the hard work of creating and installing them. Plantation blinds are suitable for almost every room in the house, including windows near the ceiling, in bathrooms, and for attics or basements.
