Why Should You Choose Plantation Shutters?

Choosing the right window treatments for your home’s windows can be difficult to do for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that window treatments control both the amount of natural light that enters your home and how much privacy your family receives. If you are struggling with choosing the proper window treatments for your home, then sit back and let the Blind & Shutter Gallery of Nashville, TN tell you why you should consider choosing plantation shutters.

Their striking design

Whether you are seriously considering purchasing plantation shutters or not, we can all agree on the fact that their design is truly unparalleled in the window treatment world. The unique combination of wood or wood-like slats that are then affixed together are beautiful, and with Hunter Douglas, you can get plantation shutters to work with any design sensibility or any décor. Whether you want dark-stained hardwood or effective, whitewashed alternative materials, or something completely different, Hunter Douglas has you covered.

Their simple operation

Anyone who has ever struggled with trying to get their blinds up and down can tell you how important it is to have window treatments that are easy to operate. Thankfully, plantation shutters from Hunter Douglas are some of the simplest window treatments to operate. They have no pesky wands or cords, and are instead operated using only the louver affixed to the front of the shutters themselves.

Their versatility

One of the many great things about Hunter Douglas’s plantation shutters is the variety of situations where they are useful. Hardwood plantation shutters are a great choice for formal living spaces like dining rooms or upscale sitting rooms, whereas alternative wood shutters are ideal for homes with small children or simply a lot of activity because of their durable construction. Worried about your plantation shutters warping, fading, peeling, or cracking because of sun exposure? Hunter Douglas still has exactly what you need. Palm Beach™ shutters are constructed from Hunter Douglas’s patented Polysatin™ compound for premium durability, and are guaranteed to never suffer from sun damage.
