Pool House- Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters Perfect For The Pool House

Summertime Custom Built Planation Shutters

Having a swimming pool in your own backyard sure is a blessing and by adding a pool house to your property you’ve not only increased the value of your home, but you’ve made it possible to entertain more guests or make your pool time even better. Part of the beauty of a pool house is being able to enjoy sitting in the shade by the pool, but sometimes guests will need a little more privacy or you’ll desire less glare from the sunlight streaming in on your face. Plantation shutters are a perfect solution for a pool house!

The pool house is a great way to provide a comfortable changing room, nearby bathroom, and a relaxing place to rest. Imagine that after you’ve build up an appetite from swimming you could rest in the pool house with the louvers just opened enough to see outside, meanwhile keeping the light from blinding you. Furthermore, you could choose to sit at the table inside, eat a snack, and look out over the sparkling water of the pool. Perhaps, you’d like to just sit inside and have a chat out of the sun’s harsh rays. In many ways, plantation shutters make it possible to truly feel a sense of calm.

Not only are the planation shutters functional, but they’ll also transform any ordinary pool house into a luxurious place to escape.

A Patio With Plantation Shutters

If you’re a lover of summertime you may have a perfect image in your mind about sitting out on your patio on a warm, summer day. Feeling the gentle, yet toasty air of a summer breeze on your skin can feel quite nice. Of course, the glare of the sunlight practically blinding your eyes and roasting you alive is a sure-fire way to kill that vibe. What can you do? When all you want to do is get a tropical feeling in your own backyard, believe it or not, Bahama style plantation shutters can help!

As you can see in the photos provided, these custom, tropically-inspired, outdoor planation shutters provide versatility in more than one way. The louvers allow just enough visibility from the inside to see the surrounding backyard area on the opposite side. Furthermore, the plantation shutters can be tilted opened by extending the built in arm which can allow a bit of air flow control.

Imagine sitting on your patio with the ability to block out some of that sunlight and keep your skin feeling refreshed by the kiss of the air. You, your friends, and your family members will not have to rush inside after just a few minutes in the warmth. One thing is for certain, the warm summer days and breezy summer nights will never be the same again with Bahama planation shutters!

Top Reasons To Install Plantation Shutters: Part 1

4 Reasons To Consider Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters can offer a custom look to any home. This is especially true of a Kirtz® shutter that is handcrafted from only the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. If you cannot decide which window dressings to apply in your newly built home we’re here to help. Today, we’re going to list 4 reasons you should consider plantation shutters for your primary window treatments.

1.) They are durable.
Custom plantation shutters are built to last a long time. Kirtz® shutters are real wood, with solid louvers. They are not the cheaper alternative vinyl shutters with hollow louvers. If you calculate the one time cost of your shutters versus the purchasing of other window treatments then you may find that they are less expensive than having to replace window coverings such as drapes or mini-blinds every few years. 

2.) They offer privacy.
Plantation shutters are easily adjustable to let the light stream in, but they also keep prying eyes out. This allows you to maintain your privacy as well as allowing natural light to enter. If you angle the louvers just so, you can even see out, but others won’t be able to see in.

3.) They are energy savers. 
Of course, letting light in is ideal at times, but shutters are also a wonderful choice for insulating your windows. Your energy bills will be lower during the times you choose to keep the warm sunlight out during the summer. In the winter, the shutters also provide an added layer of insulation to keep the cold out.

4.) They are easy to clean. 
Simply put, plantation shutters are easily cleaned by using a lint-free cloth, microfiber cloth, or duster from time to time to wipe off the grime. You don’t even need to take them down in order to clean them, just open the louvers and wipe them down.
