Top Reasons To Install Plantation Shutters: Part 2

4 Reasons To Consider Plantation Shutters

There are many significant reasons to choose plantation shutters over drapes or mini-blinds. In part one of this series we talked about 4 of those reasons. Aside from the fact that Kirtz® has an obsession with pursuing perfection in every handcrafted shutter, we have a few more compelling reasons you should consider plantation shutters for your next window treatment design.

1.) They allow ventilation.
When you want to let the fresh air inside and maintain your privacy at the same time, plantation shutters do the trick. Not only can you adjust the louvers for maximum privacy and control the light coming in, but you can also open up the windows to let the air flow in for maximum ventilation. As an added bonus, you don’t have to listen to the rattling of mini-blinds due to the air flow as the louvers don’t move in the wind!

2.) They are a safer option.
Shutters don’t have dangling cords or strings that your children can get tangled up in. This makes them a safer alternative than blinds or drapes for families with small children and babies.

3.) They add home value.
If the home you build has plantation shutters installed it brings added value to the home in that the re-sale value increases. These lovely shutters are appealing to new home buyers and they may certainly help your home sell quicker.

4.) They are aesthetically pleasing. 
Simply put, plantation shutters are beautiful. They also come in a variety of sizes and finishes as well as mounting options. As an interior design choice, you can’t go wrong by selecting real wood shutters! What’s more fabulous is that they never go out of style.
