When you’re looking for an appropriate fitting for your window, one that provides all the benefits of shutters, while at the same time bringing the convenience of blinds, there are limited options available. You could go with the traditional approach of having Venetian blinds installed; however, they are not as secure and sturdy. You could have motorised shutters installed, however, they are not as convenient, and they require some additional maintenance.
In this case, the best type of window fitting is, without a doubt, plantation shutters. These shutters are unique in the way that they combine the aforementioned convenience of traditional blinds, while still having the sturdiness and durability that comes with shutters. They are the best of both worlds, when it comes to a window fitting that does not require you to spend several hours every week cleaning and maintaining, and when it comes to providing a certain amount of security.
Following are some of the advantages of using plantation shutters for your home; all of which make them the most viable choice for your home enhancement plans.
Not surprisingly, someone who is looking for a window instalment has privacy concerns in mind, especially if they are looking for something that provides greater opacity and coverage. Plantation shutters are incredibly useful in this manner, as they not only provide the privacy that homeowners are looking for, but they also ensure that said privacy comes with a bit of security as well.
Plantation shutters are not like other window fittings in the way that they can meld into just about any contemporary or classic interior design scheme. Very few designs can claim this, and plantation shutters are certainly known for them. They are very aesthetically pleasing, especially when designed while keeping the rest of the interior decor in mind. This allows them to not only be a convenient window fitting, but a style piece as well.
Shutters are wonderful for indoor temperature management, and they are the only widow fitting type that can be modified to serve this purpose exclusively. In the conventional sense however, they can be very convenient, since they will allow the sunlight in when needed, and keep it, as well as the summer heat out, when such a requirement arises. This is particularly useful in Australia, what with the consistently hotter summer each year.
The one thing that sets plantation shutter aside from the rest of the window fittings group is their practicality. Their unique design, which may appear to be an inherent design flaw (since all of the plates are connected by a single rod or bar), is actually a practical feature that allows for even better adjustment as compared to blinds. They can be opened partially or fully, and can also be closed fully, something which blinds often struggle with after extended usage. They also maintain their structural integrity very well, making them a better selection for those who want longevity out of their fittings.
Another very important aspect of plantation shutters is the durability that you get with a well-designed set. This durability is why people prefer this type of shutter over others, and why it is so popular among homeowners who prefer their window fittings to be versatile and tough, as well as functional.
