Should you go for panel windows or plantation shutters?
One of the frequent choices for window decoration are panel windows. Since the trend is moving towards letting in lots of light and keeping the view open to the outside, the preference has shifted to panel windows. These come in many different styles and sizes. The covering can be designed with a narrow divider rail to allow for a separate control of the top and bottom louvres. This is a feature that comes in handy because of practical reasons such as better privacy control.
If you are thinking long-term, plantation shutters can increase your property’s value. We like to tell customers that these shutters are the only window treatment that can be financed into the purchase of your home. That is because they are highly desirable and usually come with the home when it is sold. When you are buying interior shutters, it is important to decide between buying custom shutters truly built for your windows or have the company take stock panels and cut them down to fit. Prices for both fall in the same range.
