If you’re a homeowner or business owner, then you know the importance of having your space look nice and be functional all at the same time. This especially applies to the window treatments you choose for your home or office. Plantation blinds, also known as plantation shutters, are one of the most attractive window treatments for many reasons. But first, let’s talk about what plantation blinds are exactly.
What are Plantation Blinds?
Plantation blinds, mostly referred to as plantation shutters, are a type of window treatment that consists of a frame with louvers, or slats. The louvers can be adjusted to control the amount of light and airflow that enters the room. Plantation shutters are often used in tropical settings, but can be found in any home and are perfect for the coastal areas in North and South Carolina.
The Benefits of Choosing Plantation Shutters
There are plenty of wonderful advantages for choosing plantation blinds for your home. These benefits include:
When it comes to window treatments, these are a popular choice for many homeowners. There are several reasons for this, but one of the most common is that they look great. Plantation shutters come in a variety of sizes, so you can find an option that will complement the rest of your décor. In fact, the AAA Blind and Shutter Factory team offers louver sizes in 2 ½”, 3 ½” or 4 ½”; all of which are finished in Snow White to compliment all shades of white moldings.
Many people prioritize durability when it comes to choosing their window treatments. And for good reason – no one wants to spend money on something that’s going to fall apart in a few months. Plantation shutters are one of the most durable options on the market. Our shutters are crafted from a solid core poly vinyl material that helps protect your home or office against heat and cold.
Not only are these window treatments attractive and durable, but they’re also relatively easy to operate. Unlike curtains or traditional blinds, plantation shutters can be easily opened or closed with a simple tilt of the louvers. This makes them an ideal choice for rooms that receive a lot of sunlight, as well as for those who want to be able to adjust the amount of light coming into a room on a whim. In addition, they can provide privacy while still allowing some light to filter through, making them a perfect option for bedrooms and bathrooms.
Unlike traditional blinds, plantation shutters are extremely easy to clean. We recommend regular cleaning with a Swiffer duster. Or, for spot cleaning, we suggest wiping the shutters with a damp cloth and drying them with a clean cloth. In addition, our plantation shutters can be easily repaired if they become damaged or stained. In fact, since we make the shutters in our factory, we usually have repairs completed by the next day. As a result, they’re an excellent choice for homes with active children or pets. If you’re looking for an attractive and low-maintenance window treatment, these may be the option for you.
With so many benefits, it’s no wonder that plantation shutters are such a popular choice among homeowners and business owners. If you’re interested in learning more about plantation blinds, feel free to contact us today for a complimentary in-home consultation, or be sure to visit our showroom!
