The benefits of plantation shutters for your home
With cooler weather on the way, plantation shutters are a great way to help keep your home warm, secure and beautiful. Made in the Shade explains why plantation shutters are a great choice for your Prescott home.
Plantation shutters are louvered panels which fix either on the inside or outside of your home’s windows. They are available in painted or stained finishes and can be waterproofed for bathrooms or swimming pool areas. Types of plantation shutters include cafe style, full height or tiered.
- Cafe-style plantation shutters cover only the bottom half of a window which helps homeowners enjoy plenty of light while still maintaining privacy.
- Full-length plantation shutters are designed to cover your entire window and are a smart choice for your home as well as your office.
- Tiered shutters also cover your entire window but they are divided into two sections. This is a perfect solution for privacy while allowing you to open sections of the shutters on bright, sunny days.
As the weather turns colder, many homeowners find themselves turning up the heat meaning higher utility bills. Plantation shutters help insulate your home from the cold by minimizing heat loss. When you close your shutters, you provide another layer of protection between the inside air and your windows.
Plantation shutters offer a great deal of flexibility because of the ability to open and close them by sections. When you want to let in more light and still maintain your privacy, merely adjust the louvers so that view from the outside is blocked.
