Are Plantation Shutters Right for You?
There are various reasons why plantation shutters are the best choice for covering your windows. Let’s look at a few.
Regardless of the interior design you have, there’s a plantation shutter out there that’s perfect for your home. Salem wood gives you an almost colonial echo that sparks memories of America’s rich history. You can also choose a more contemporary design if you’re looking for a modern style.
There isn’t a set of blinds or curtains that can bring the same style a plantation window can. Whether you want to create a traditional feel or go with something unique, Southern Custom Shutters can deliver.
Plantation shutters are efficient and offer a wide range of functions that make your home more comfortable. They let in just the right amount of light and air to find a temperature that’s perfect. On those brutal summer days where the sun is relentless, you can close them completely to keep your room cool and cozy.
It’s amazing how something with such a simple design can be so durable. Wood plantation shutters are built for longevity. No matter which design you get, all products from Southern Custom Shutters will last you for many years to come.
If you’ve ever owned blinds, you know how easily they break. Every so often, you have to take down the blinds for cleaning, and that is never fun. With plantation shutters, there’s practically no maintenance. You only need to keep them clean by occasionally wiping them down with a towel and cleaning solution.
What’s the Difference Between Plantation Shutters and Regular Shutters?
Regular shutters (also known as traditional shutters) have been around since colonial times. They originated in New England and were created to provide better insulation during harsh weather conditions. You’ll still find many early American homes with traditional shutters throughout the United States.
Plantation shutters were built for plantation homes in the Southern states. Their primary purpose was to protect the home’s interior from the fierce heat and sunlight. Plantation shutters generally have larger louvers (slaps), so they offer a full view when open and block out the sun entirely when closed.
Wood vs. Vinyl Plantation Shutters
Natural wood is incredibly durable and stylish, but it’s also more expensive. Vinyl is a lot more affordable and still looks fantastic, but it’s not as durable. Therefore, wood plantation shutters are better if you’re looking for something long term.
However, not everyone has the budget for wood shutters, so vinyl is an optimal alternative. If you’re not too concerned about resale value and only want the benefits of plantation shutters, vinyl is a suitable choice. Vinyl shutters are skyrocketing in popularity due to their low-cost, easy installation, and elegant style.
