Plantation Shutters Should Be Made From Wood

3 Pros of Real Wood Plantation Shutters 

Whenever you’re buying plantation shutters, one of the things you need to consider is the type of material your shutters are going to be made from. There are 3 main types of materials for shutters. These include; wood, synthetic, and a composite. Kirtz Shutters is here to explain why wood is the best material in the long run. 

Investment: There are many reasons that wood shutters are a great investment. Wood provides a clean, timeless look that last for years. Synthetic plantation shutters have come a long way in replicating wood, but there’s a real texture that can’t be matched by synthetic or composite materials. The biggest reason to invest in all wood shutters is that they can increase your home’s value. Home-Buyers know the value of these shutters and will pay extra for them.

Flexibility: Wood is an easier material to work with over synthetics. Wood can be finished and re-finished to match a room as it changes over time. Meaning you don’t have to buy new plantation shutters every time you want to change the look of a room. Additionally, authentic wood shutters come in a wide variety of colors compared to their synthetic counterparts. The classic look of real wood also blends well with many styles giving you more flexibility when designing a room. 

Light Control: Plantation shutters made from true wood also give you more control over the amount of light in your room. Shutters can close completely to keep the sun totally out. You also have a larger range of angles to maneuver the light around, which means that you can always make a room look its best no matter where the sun is shining inside. 

Wood shutters can last for years and add a peerless, classic look to your home. Call us today to learn how you can get some of the best plantation shutters around! Call Kirtz Shutters at 1-800-416-6455!
