Have you been considering new ways to improve the aesthetic appeal of your home? If that’s the case, plantation shutters are a great option to consider. These shutters have long been a beloved window covering by homeowners all over the country, though they are most common in their native South. Prior to the invention of modern conveniences such as air conditioning, people had to rely on outside air flow to keep their homes cool. Plantation shutters were the ideal solution because of their ability to keep homes cool while still providing a pleasing aesthetic. Shuttercraft Winchester-Winchester Blinds And Shutters
Plantation shutters’ wide-louvered style provided an excellent cooling solution in the summer, but they are now mostly purchased for their aesthetic appeal. This isn’t to suggest they aren’t useful window coverings; they have many advantages. Plantation shutters, in addition to being energy efficient (they can be custom designed to suit any window size and shape), have a wider base that gives users greater control over air flow and sunlight than most window treatments.
Interior plantation shutters are also better at adapting for the mood and comfort level of individual rooms, which is beneficial since not every room in your home is the same. You can easily change the shutters to match the space if you want more air flow to cool your kitchen or choose a low-lit bedroom that faces east in the morning.
The ability to use plantation shutters in a variety of other applications is what distinguishes them the most. They can be used in closet doors, for example, to precisely match the surrounding points of interest, such as the room’s windows and entry door. Although it is generally not a good idea to have too much of anything when it comes to decorating, these shutters are an exception. In reality, integrating them into your closet space is widely considered a designer must, particularly when you want to keep the internal contents hidden from view.
