3 Benefits of Having Plantation Shutters in the Winter

Plantation shutters are an ever growing trend in home decor.  They are a great looking modern alternative to the classic blind.  Their versatile nature makes them easy to install in any room of your house, or better yet all of the rooms in your house.  They can add light to the room or easily be shut to darken the room. They are great for those who have allergies, as they are easy to wipe down, removing dust and other allergens.  Plantation Shutters are remarkably easy to use as there are no complicated (and dangerous) strings and rods.  Having plantation shutters installed in your home will also increase the value of your home. While all of these things are great, how do plantation shutters help you during the winter?

Reduce Energy Costs

One of the top reasons why plantation shutters are so wonderful is that they keep the heat inside and reduce energy costs of your home.  The main cause of a cold home is heat loss. You can crank up the heater and turn on the fire, but if any heat can seep out through the cracks in windows and doors, the house will continue to be cold or either your energy costs will increase.  Studies show that anywhere from 25-50% of the energy can escape through your windows. Plantation shutters add a protective barrier between the windows and the rest of the home, helping the heat to stay inside.  You can shut the shutters to keep the cool drafts away from the rest of the home.  Of course, the major benefit of properly insulating your home is that your energy costs will become lower.

Privacy

Plantation shutters are an easy way to control the privacy of your home.  Unlike traditional blinds — that still allow people to peek in if you tip the slats the wrong way — plantation shutters offer total privacy.  If you close them, no one can look into your home. You can even adjust them to allow light to enter the home, but not allow others to see in.

Easy to Decorate

Because plantation shutters are solid and durable, they are easy to decorate during the winter and holiday months.  Many light-weight decorations such as cards, garlands, and lights will stay put without a struggle.  You also don’t have to worry about getting cords tangled up in your decor.

Janet, Lynchburg, VA

“This company is fantastic. From the first contact we had with them (visiting their showroom) to the final installation, they are #1 professionals. After we visited the showroom, the salesperson came to our home, showed us a sample shutter, and made recommendations (and gave different styles) for our windows. After we accepted the contract, she made an appointment to come out and do exact measurements. We love our new shutters, and every element of this contract could not have been better. They even left a jar of VA peanuts!”

“We love hearing from our clients – Here’s a review we received this week……..”My shutters were delivered and installed this morning. From start to finish the installation took about 90 minutes. I am beyond impressed with the high quality craftsmanship and over the moon with how gorgeous they are. I’d also like to note, that everyone from Marcia in sales, Jodi in billing, and the installers, whose names I didn’t catch, are supremely professional. As a Richmonder, I love that the money from my purchase stays in the local economy, too. I will be singing this company’s praises for years to come.
