There is no question that plantation shutters make a fantastic addition to your home; contemporary, stylish, and practical, there is a myriad of reasons why so many people are considering this kind of shutter for their home. Whether you live in Richmond, Putney, Surbiton, Kingston, Twickenham, Worcester Park, or Esher, read on below to learn why you should introduce plantation shutters into your property.
Customisable Room Feature
Let’s face it – plantation shutters are simply stunning, transforming a simple and plain room into a sophisticated and refined space. Perfectly complementing a minimalistic environment as well as space with a busier decor, plantation shutters sit perfectly in the window casement, contributing a light, modern, and natural aesthetic to this important part of the room. Plantation shutters work fantastically with the interior and decor of any room; manufactured from a variety of woods to offer you complete flexibility in your design choice, these shutters can be customised to work harmoniously in your chosen space and can be installed both on the outside and the inside of your windows.
Furthermore, because they are made bespoke for your property, plantation shutters can fit a variety of different window shapes, ideal if your home has more unusual features such as arched windows. The expert team here at Supreme Shutters are highly experienced in the manufacturing and fitting of these shutters, helping us to ensure minimal disruption to our customers.
Flexibility and Privacy
You have a myriad of choices when it comes to deciding how you want your plantation shutters to operate. Firstly, you can choose to either have single or double tier plantation shutters, the former comprising a single panel and the latter utilising two separate panels for the top and bottom sections of the windows. Double tier shutters are perfect for places such as the bathroom where you would like to maintain an element of privacy whilst still being able to let in the sunshine. Next, consider whether you would like the shutters to be hinged on the left and right, thereby opening outwards, or if you would prefer them to open in one direction to work around any nearby furniture.
Durability and Low Maintenance
Due to the fact that plantation shutters can be installed on both the inside and outside of your windows, they are purposely constructed to be as durable as possible, truly making them a brilliant investment for your home. Furthermore, cleaning can be kept to a minimum as this kind of shutter is low maintenance, only requiring gentle wiping every now and then. Plantation shutters do not accumulate dust and dirt in the same way as other types of blinds and curtains, making them ideal for homeowners who suffer from allergies.
Temperature and Light Control
It may come as a surprise to many that plantation shutters offer effective temperature control of your living space. You can arrange the slats so that fresh air can circulate whilst harsh or heavy sunlight is directed away from the room, creating a cool and relaxing environment. As it starts to get colder, close your slats completely to prevent heat loss and keep your room warm and insulated. You can also arrange your plantation shutters this way to minimise outside noise pollution.
