The right window dressings can completely transform the look and feel of a home. Hardwood shutters, also known as California or plantation shutters, are a timeless classic that makes a beautiful addition to both modern and traditional-style homes. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits.
Privacy and Lighting Control
With curtains and regular blinds, you have two opens: opened or closed. Not so with hardwood shutters. The moveable slats give you much more choice when it comes to privacy and lighting control. What’s more, one doesn’t have to compromise the other: you can keep your privacy and allow daylight in by tilting your louvres.
Ease of Use and Safety
Interior shutters are both comfortable and safe to use. No need to worry about loose cords around young children or manoeuvring awkward or heavy curtains. Shutters are opened, closed and adjusted quickly and with minimal effort.
Style and Ambiance
If you’re looking for a style upgrade, hardwood shutters are a perfect choice. They make a tasteful, elegant and timeless addition to any home. With a range of shutter styles to choose from, there’s a design to suit every home and style. They also look great from the outside, adding that extra curb appeal and boosting property value.
We can tailor plantation shutters to fit almost any window, whether it’s a small or large, rectangular or curved. From tiny portholes to large bay windows or French door, interior shutters work for almost any window you can image.
In the summer months, shutters can help keep a room shaded whilst also allowing airflow to keep a space cool. It’s no coincidence shutters are so popular in the Mediterranean! During winter, shutters provide an additional layer of insulation and help to keep out cold drafts and stop those energy bills for skyrocketing.
Noisy neighbours or lots of traffic nearby? Hardwood shutters act as an extra sound buffer, helping to keep your home the tranquil space you deserve.
Best for Allergies
Unlike curtains which can attract dust and allergens over time, California shutters are easy to wipe down and keep spotless.
No need to worry about material fraying or tearing, hardwood shutters are built to last and can also add value to your property should you decide to move. All our shutters come with a five-year warranty for peace of mind.
