Yes! Plantation shutters are worth the money. This popular window dressing can seem costly when compared to other window dressings, but we can assure you they are worth every penny.

There are cheaper window dressing alternatives, such as ready-made curtains or roller blinds, however, you won’t get the amazing benefits that come with plantation shutters.

As the saying goes “if you buy cheap, you buy twice”. Inexpensive window dressings tend to need replacing more frequently, which will cost you much more in the long-run.

Plantation Shutters: More Than Just A Window Dressing

When investing in shutters, you are paying for more than just a stylish window dressing. You are investing in a durable and high-quality window dressing that will last for years to come.

You are paying for longevity and the peace of mind that your new shutters will sustain the wear and tear of your home.

Plus, unlike other window dressings, plantation shutters are bespoke to your preferences. They are made to measure to ensure they perfectly fit your window. Because they are fitted snugly to the window, plantation shutters offer a sleek window dressing that doesn’t take up space.

You can opt for a bold colour to really make a statement or opt for a neutral colour that will look amazing, regardless of how many times you redecorate.

In addition, you are paying for the craftsmanship and expert installers. Depending on the company you go with, you will likely have your shutters professionally installed to ensure they work seamlessly and are fitted correctly.

Plantation shutters also offer total flexibility and versatility. You have complete control over light and privacy levels in your home. Better yet, they are easy to clean and maintain. They can be easily wiped down and will not hold on to stains or odours.

Cost-Effective Benefits Of Plantation Shutters

Although plantation shutters can seem expensive when compared to other window dressings, they offer cost-effective benefits.

  • Reduce The Need For Artificial Lighting – Thanks to the flexibility of plantation shutters, you can maintain privacy in your home without blocking out natural light. Even when closed, you can tilt the louvres to ensure your home is flooded with natural light.
  • Save On Heating Bills – During the winter months, plantation shutters provide an insulating layer that prevents heat from escaping and blocks draughts from creeping into your home. The strong, high-quality materials will keep your home warm and save you money.
  • Increase The Value Of Your Home – Aside from looking incredibly stylish, plantation shutters can also increase the value of your home if you ever come to sell. Plus, this strong and durable window dressing provides an added layer of security against intruders.
