What are Plantation Shutters? 

Plantation Shutters first became popular in the Southern USA, where they were first fitted to mansions on cotton and sugar plantations. They became a popular feature on these types of properties because large and heavy curtains were not an ideal solution for a highly humid climate. Now a global interior feature, plantation shutters have been modernised to appeal to the modern age, with a plethora of colour and styles available allowing you to truly design your dream home. 

Mostly always made from wood, plantation shutters are slatted blinds that sit inside their own frame and are installed in your window sill or door frame. They feature several louvres (also known as slats) which can be easily tilted to allow the desired light, airflow and privacy.

Advantages of Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters offer many benefits to your home but perhaps the most popular advantage is the privacy that they offer. Plantation shutters offer the utmost privacy without compromising light. By simply tilting the louvres, plantation shutters keep ongoing passers from looking in while still allowing light to fill the room, making them a perfect addition to your home if you like flexibility. Additionally, when they are closed fully they can minimise outdoor noise, creating a quiet and peaceful environment. 

Another huge advantage of plantation shutters is the low maintenance that they require. No-one wants to spend their free time cleaning or having to wash curtains, plantation shutters are so easy to clean and maintain. It’s recommended that the individual louvres need wiping down with a damp cloth once a week – and that’s it! Installing plantation shutters could increase your downtime at home with your family in Hemel Hempstead.
