Shenandoah Shutters’ plantation shutters are more than just an elegant look, they are low maintenance and beneficial to your health as well. Unlike curtains or blinds where dust tends to get trapped within the fabric or bind onto the plastic coating, our patented shutters are made of real wood and have a furniture quality finish which offers easy cleaning with just a simple wipe from a soft, damp cloth. This is great for those who suffer from allergies and an excellent deterrent for dust mites. The use of plantation shutters also allows the control of natural light. Natural light is known to increase productivity, brain activity becomes sharper and the immune system builds its defenses. All of this results in happier moods and a healthier you.
