How Plantation Shutters Can Improve Your Property


Thinking about introducing new window coverings in your home? In this blog, the team at Mal Glanville & Co explore how plantation shutters can improve your property.

Elevating Aesthetics

Plantation shutters have a classic presentation that is both timelessly stylish and elegant. Pairing neutral colours with practical designs is the secret to having these inclusions elevate your aesthetics not just for now, but well into the future. No matter the decor or motif you have decided to go with for your bedroom, living room, or any other area of your house with windows, plantation shutters will seamlessly complement and elevate the surrounding aesthetics.

Extra Protection & Privacy

A large part of home ownership is security. When it comes to protecting your property and your family within it, it pays to invest in multiple layers preventing thieves and potential home invaders from trying to gain access. Plantation shutters have a durable design and construction offering greater defence than other alternatives, such as blinds and curtains.

Their design also blocks out more of the outside view when closed, limiting light and nosey neighbours. When open, however, you can still enjoy a full view of an outdoor space and fill your home with swathes of natural light.

Simple Maintenance

When it comes to maintaining our property, homeowners greatly appreciate anything that makes the process a little easier. With plantation shutters, there is no longer any need to struggle with coiled strings or cables or fumbling with confusing vacuum attachments to remove sheets of dust. All you need is to quickly run a moist cloth across the surface – and you’re done!

Increase Property Value

Plantation shutters aren’t simply a purchase; they’re an investment. Their highly versatile nature means that whatever your window sizes, dimensions, or wider home plan, you can introduce either sliding, stacked, hinged fixtures, or customised bifold plantation shutters to best suit your layout. Along with the points mentioned above, this immediately increases the appraisal value of your home.
