Window shutters are beautiful and make an aesthetic backdrop for any décor. It is an investment that is quite popular among homeowners and designers. They add value to your home by protecting and preserving the interior and they are more versatile and neutral than draperies. Traditional shutters are more typically used in the north east in homes with a Colonial or early American style where windows are smaller. Plantation shutters got their name from the old southern plantations. The louvers were wider than traditional shutters and were put on the exterior of the home as they were used as protection against the elements as well as decoration. Through the years, as more homes in California were built with large glass windows, wide louvered plantation shutters became the popular window treatment These eye catching window treatments are great for light control, air flow, insulation and privacy. Once installed, they are a permanent fixture and can be opened and put to the side of your window to give you a full view, or for full privacy the louvers can be easily closed.
Window shutters give you privacy and added security. When shutters are closed, no one can see inside. This means that passersby cannot see in your home, and possible intruders aren’t can’t tell if you are home or not. The number one place an intruder will attempt to get into your home is the front door; the second is a first floor window. A typical burglar does not want to work very hard and will only spend up to 60 seconds trying to gain entry into a home. If there is anything blocking their way or causing them to risk taking more time, they will move on to the next more accessible target.
All window treatments have some ability to shade or reflect light. Plantation shutters are an outstanding way to conserve energy because they can absorb and block heat, or keep the warmth in as well as eliminate the flow of indoor and outdoor air seepage. This gives you more control over your homes interior environment. Keeping the harmful ultra violet rays out will preserve the quality of your furnishings and flooring and keep them from fading prematurely. Both the synthetic and natural basswood shutters are thicker than horizontal blinds which gives you the added benefit of noise dampening capability.
Window shutters are durable and easy to maintain. For real wood shutters, dust thoroughly and once a month spray a dust cloth with wood polish and wipe. If the wood grain has small grooves, use a toothbrush to clean the crevices and hard to reach areas. Do not use water on real wood shutters as it can warp or damage the wood.
Faux wood shutters should be dusted regularly. You can also use the soft brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner. For a more thorough cleaning you can use soap and water. It is recommended that you use distilled water because it doesn’t have minerals that may cause spotting. It is important to use a second cloth with only water to get rid of any soapy residue, and dry with a towel to prevent spotting. Do not use spray cleaners as they may be too harsh and may stain or discolor your shutters.
Shutters are not just for windows. Many homeowners opt for installing plantation shutters over French doors, or sliding patio doors. Not only is this an elegant alternative, but it also eliminates the banging of blinds as the doors are opened and closed. You can add architectural interest, or streamline any room by using them as closet doors, or create separate spaces by using shutters as room dividers. Shutters are also much safer for homes with children as there are no cords to get tangled in.
