Interior Plantation Shutters: What are the Benefits?
Plantation shutters are a fantastic way to make the most of your windows. They offer a wide variety of classic, elegant, and stylish designs that complement the interior of any home. In this blog, we’ll discuss several benefits of adding interior plantation shutters to your home. These benefits include how they can add value to your home both financially and in your everyday life.
What are Interior Plantation Shutters?
There are a lot of products on the market labeled as plantation shutters, so it is sometimes unclear what exactly constitutes a plantation shutter. Generally, plantation shutters are interior shutters that have large louvers made from horizontal angled slats that can be opened and closed using a tilt rod in the middle. Custom plantation shutters will allow for a highly tailored experience that makes your home comfortable, unique, and even more valuable.
What are the benefits of Interior Plantation Shutters?
Quality of Life
One of the most apparent benefits of plantation shutters is the ability to increase or lower the amount of natural lighting. If you’re watching a game or movie in your living room, and glare from sunlight is ruining the experience, plantation shutters may be for you. When you need to block out the sunlight, they can be shut all the way, making your living room pitch black just like the inside of a cinema. Your house can instantly be turned into a home theater.
In your kitchen, if you want some privacy while enjoying a meal you can also shut them all the way. If you want to let in some natural light and add some ambiance to your meal, you can do that too. Opening and closing your plantation shutters is also an effective way to regulate the temperature indoors without using heat or air conditioning.
If you plan to later sell your home, you should know that plantation shutters can add monetary value. Prospective buyers are oftentimes willing to pay more for a house that is furnished with plantation shutters. Interior plantation shutters will hold more value than foreign manufactured plastic blinds or old worn-out curtains. A set of high-quality plantation shutters will sell themselves and increase the resale potential of your home. This is especially true if the shutters are custom made for the home.
Another benefit of interior plantation shutters is they are highly customizable. They come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.
