PLANTATION SHUTTERS

Plantation shutters represent the ultimate in interior window coverings, offering functionality and convenience in an attractive package. Designed to offer shade and privacy, plantation shutters give a classic, elegant look to windows, adding beauty and value to your home. This traditional approach to window covering is truly timeless, meaning that your investment in plantation shutters will be one that you can enjoy for many years to come, even as decorating styles wax and wane. In fact, the historical record indicates that interior shutters were first used in England during the Tudor and Elizabethan eras. When open, these shutters allowed fresh air to flow into a room, and when closed, they functioned as decorative wall panels. It is no surprise that they are used in much the same way today.

Plantation shutters are incredibly attractive and versatile, functioning equally well in traditional and contemporary environments, freeing you from the need for drapes or curtains. It is also worth considering that plantation shutters possess superior insulation properties and therefore will save you money on cooling and heating while blocking harmful UV rays which cause furniture to warp and fade.

Plantation shutters are, of course, available in a variety of styles, finishes, and materials. In addition to the traditional wood, plantation shutters are also constructed from synthetic materials that have the advantages of low maintenance, light weight, and proven durability. And with advances in technology, many synthetic materials now look so much like real wood that it is virtually impossible to tell the difference.
