How Do Plantation Shutters Differ From Traditional Options?

If you’re looking for an alternative to blinds or curtains in your home, it could be worth considering shutters instead.

However, do you know much about the differences between the likes of traditional window shutters and plantation shutters? An article for News Anyway recently noted that plantation shutters are a highly versatile option that provide privacy, as well as giving you control over how much light you let into your home.

You might decide that plantation shutters in Worthing are the way to go for your home, because of their versatility.

As the news provider explained, plantation shutters get their name because they were very popular in many of the places where plantations were operated centuries ago. One of the big advantages to these particular window shutters is their wide louvers, which can be fixed at any angle thereby giving you complete control over how much light you let into your home.

This also makes them a great option for controlling the temperature in your property, by allowing you to insulate your windows efficiently when it’s colder, while also allowing air to flow in on warmer days when you may have your windows open.

By contrast, traditional shutters typically have smaller louvers that are not as maneuverable, which means they don’t offer quite the same level of versatility (although they do still look incredibly stylish).

Another good reason to consider shutters of any kind is their environmental credentials. As we recently noted, solid wood shutters in particular are great for insulation and therefore are worth considering in the UK where we experience cold temperatures during the winter months.
