What Are Plantation Shutters?

Plantation shutters got their name because they were common on American cotton plantations. Their history dates back as far as Medieval times, where they protected buildings from the weather and provided security.

These shutters have excellent insulating qualities, thus their popularity. As a result, they keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Unlike blinds, plantation shutters are fitted to your window’s frame. They’re opened and closed like doors, so there’s no need to worry about pull strings. The tilted wooden slats are known as louvers. The angle of the louvers can be adjusted so you can control the amount of light and air they let through.

When the slats are completely closed, they let no light in. They also reduce noise pollution. Because of this, they can improve your quality of sleep. Also, if you angle the slats correctly, you can allow light into your room without compromising on privacy.  

Plantation shutters are a timeless design, so they look great in building styles from any era. Their elegant appeal can increase the value of your home, as many buyers associate them with well-maintained properties.
