Plantation shutters have sturdy frames with louvres or blades between them that open or close. The blades can vary in size, but they are designed to open and shut based on your preferences. That way, you can let in the light when you desire or close them up tight to keep the hot sun out of the house. You can also attract more of a breeze when they’re open, ensuring that you can feel comfortable regardless of what the weather is. However, the best part about these shutters is that you can control how widely they open or how closed they are, giving you control over the comfort level of your home.
Plantation shutters are also highly practical and look beautiful regardless of your décor. They’re also easy to maintain and only need a light dusting periodically to keep them looking excellent. The best part is that you don’t need a variety of other hardware options, such as curtain rods or curtains. They are the curtain and provide shade and privacy when they are closed or semi-closed. However, you can always open them to let in the light, just as you can with a curtain. You just don’t need a drawstring or something else to hold the curtain. Plus, you don’t have to worry about taking down curtains to wash them all the time because shutters are made of wood or other sturdy materials.
At SP Screens, they offer plantation shutters in fauxwood or timber, both of which look like wood. Therefore, if you live in a wet climate and want the look of wood, fauxwood (PVC) is your best choice. They all have a warranty and are all light-weight, ensuring that you don’t require extra hardware to have them installed safely. You can also choose from a variety of colours, ensuring that you can match your overall décor or choose something for a bold statement.
