More and more people in Nashville, Franklin, and the surrounding areas are turning to plantation shutters (also called plantation blinds) as their window covering of choice. While plantation shutters can certainly boost your home’s curb appeal and add a sophisticated touch, those aren’t the only reasons to consider making the switch.
Here are a few of the main benefits of adding plantation shutters inside your home:
Chances are, you’ve had frustrating vinyl blinds at some point. Maybe they never raised or lowered quite right. Maybe the cord or a few of the slats broke off.
To put it simply, they weren’t made to last.
At Advantage Shutters, our plantation shutters are built for the long haul, with very little or no maintenance. We make real wood shutters – not composite – that are designed to look and work great for years and years to come.
Lower Energy Costs
By adding well-built plantation shutters, you can also improve your home’s energy efficiency and reduce your heating and cooling costs. Just filter out light on hot summer days to keep your home cool. In the winter, the shutters act as an extra layer of insulation to keep out cold air.
Increased Home Value
Plantation shutters add class and sophistication to any home, which in turn, can add to your home’s worth on the real estate market. While it’s impossible to put an exact number on how much plantation shutters raise your home’s value, you can be confident that they rate highly with prospective buyers.
Since our plantation blinds are custom-made to fit your windows, you can be confident that they will be a perfect fit, even for circular or arched windows. No more struggling to install blinds or being frustrated by having several extra inches hanging below your window sill.
This snug fit also means you don’t need additional curtains or valances to help control the amount of light you let in.
