Plantation shutters actually date back as far as to the ancient Greeks. However, the origins of their modern day name come from their popular use in grand homes on cotton plantations in America’s deep south. Louvered shutters were designed to let in both light and cool air in the hot, humid conditions.
Why should you put Plantation Shutters in your home?
For starters, the look and design of Plantation Shutters is timeless. They rarely look out of date or go out of fashion; especially when well looked after. Plantation Shutters also blend in very well with most decor, and they come in a variety of hues to work well with every colour scheme. These shutters exude style and will look awesome in any home.
Similar to Venetian blinds, Plantation Shutters have adjustable louvers that allow you to let in as much or as little light as you desire. The louvers also enable more or less air to flow through the house. For complete privacy, close the louvers fully to avoid those prying eyes from the neighbours and passers’ by.
Timber or Aluminium
While timber is the most popular material for the manufacture of quality Plantation Shutters, they are also available in an aluminium range as well. Which choice you make will depend on your personal preference and your budget.
Solid Colour or Stained
In the timber range you have a choice of stained timber colour or having them custom painted in a solid colour of your choice. White is always popular as it goes with just about any decor and wall colour.
All Plantation Shutters can be Bi-fold, hinged, sliding or fixed. It’s up to you. They can also be made to fit just about any window shape or size. So whether it’s for a small bathroom window or large window areas in the living space, Plantation Shutters are the perfect solution for window furnishings.
