Revealed! The Top Benefits of Plantation Shutters

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As a homeowner, you’re probably all too familiar with finding ways to improve the look and style of your property. But did you know that one of the biggest changes you can make to your home, is with a simple change to your window dressings?
It’s true! Shutters are proving to be incredibly popular in Australian homes with more people than ever before having them installed on their properties. This timeless style has been around for centuries, and it seems to be enjoying a little bit of a renaissance – and it’s easy to see why!

If you’ve been toying with the idea of installing shutters on your windows, then read on to discover why you should go ahead with your investment, with the top benefits of plantation shutters, revealed!

They’re probably cheaper than you think
If it’s the cost of plantation shutters that concerns you the most, then you may find yourself pleasantly surprised. When you choose The Shutters Dept to create your dream window dressings, you’ll get the benefit of functionality, style and amazing prices straight from the manufacturer. No hard sales pitches, no pressure, just the stunning, plantation shutters you want at a price you can afford. With no compromises on quality – you even get a ten-year warranty for total peace of mind.
If cost is something you’re concerned about then you may be surprised at how budget-friendly these window dressings can be!

They add value to your home
Stunning plantation shutters turn heads for all the right reasons, and if you’re planning on selling your home either now, or in the future then you can expect plenty of interest and value-added to your home. You can expect instant kerb appeal when you install plantation shutters.

Ideal for allergy sufferers
Is there someone in your home who struggles with allergies? Traditional window dressings such as fabric curtains and blinds attract dust, pet hair and even pollen, creating a toxic atmosphere for people who struggle with allergens. With a quick swipe, you can instantly remove any allergens and help everyone in your home to breathe a little easier.

Temperature regulation
In Australia, being able to get some relief from the blistering sun is crucial. Plantation shutters make keeping your home a little cooler in the summer months a little more realistic. They’re also great at blocking all those cold draughts in the winter months.

Privacy in your own home is important to everyone and unlike curtains that can blow open, or blinds that don’t close properly when you install plantation shutters you can get complete privacy from the world outside. You can adjust the position of your shutters so you can view as much or as little as you wish.

And finally, they’re safer
Traditional curtains can pose a fire risk to unsuspecting homeowners, while traditional blinds come with dangerously long cords that children can easily become tangled in, causing injury or even death. Curtains can also be heavy and blinds are difficult to manoeuvre especially for the elderly. With plantation shutters, you get safety, functionality and style in one installation.
