Most people remember plantation shutters being popular decades ago, but they have made a significant comeback because they are timeless in style and make your home (both inside and out) look amazing. They are also long-lasting and much more so than blinds and drapes. Blinds are flimsy and can easily break when you go to dust or wash them. Drapes can be heavy and may get eaten by moths; plus, they have to be removed to wash them, which means your windows are uncovered for a few hours. Shutters are more sturdy and don’t have to be taken down to clean.
Plantation shutters can also help you stay comfortable in the house. They’re designed to fit snugly into the frame, which means you don’t need supporting hardware. It also means that you can control the amount of sunlight allowed into the house. You can open the blades a little bit or a lot, and can also open them upward and downward. Therefore, you can direct the sunlight where you want it to go; you can keep it off your prized plants or direct it away from the carpet and furniture so that you still get natural light without causing your furnishings to fade before their time.
SP Screens offers plantation shutters and makes it easy for you to get something bespoke to meet all of your needs.
