Did you know that plantation shutters can improve the insulation of your home? Shutters are different than blinds or curtains, as they are built to fit snugly in your windows. This snug fit helps keep out the cold during the fall and winter months and keeps your room cooler during the warmest months of the year.
The Advantages of Synthetic Plantation Shutters
While traditional wooden plantation shutters help to insulate the rooms of your home, newer shutters made of synthetic material can insulate up to three times more than wood. Because synthetic plantation shutters insulate so well, you may even qualify for a federal tax credit as you will be able to significantly reduce your energy consumption. Synthetic shutters are also eco-friendly as they can be made from 100% recycled manmade materials. Synthetic shutters are built so well, they are even guaranteed to last your lifetime and beyond.

Plantation Shutters Make a Strong Statement
Plantation shutters have the ability to completely transform the dynamics of a room without looking like you are trying to hard. If you are someone who gets bored easy, choose a wood or neutral color that will go with an array of different colors. This way, you can paint your walls as often as you like.
These types of shutters have a rich history and really tie the look for a room together. The wider shutter is far more sophisticated than a skinny variety you find prefabricated in certain sizes and sold in stores.
Fortunately, everyone has their own taste or the world would be pretty dull with everyone looking exactly the same. This also applies within the home. Can you imagine if every house was decorated the same inside? For most, this is an unbearable thought! Your home gives you the opportunity to express yourself in color, design and texture. For this reason, there is a vast selection of window coverings to choose from because what looks great in one home will do nothing for another. Interestingly though, plantation shutters complement nearly any space. There is just something about them that makes you feel like you are home!

Sometimes, this applies to a refinance as well. While you may find this odd, it is really not. They increase the value of the home and they almost always stay with the house if it is sold in the future. Therefore, it makes sense that many lenders are willing to factor these costs in.
What Makes a Plantation Shutter Different?
Traditional shutters have narrower, smaller louvers. While they did see their peak in popularity and there are still plenty of lovely options available, a plantation shutter is becoming a preferred choice because they allow for the maximum amount of natural light. They have wider louvers and those that are created for longer windows on divider rails offer more control. So, you can close some and leave others open on a wide window. They are perfect for any room in your home and offer a great curb appeal from the outside.
Having plantation shutters added to your home is an exciting decision!

Now that you are finally ready to have plantation shutters custom made for your windows, you are probably feeling overwhelmed with questions you want answers to, and decisions that need to be made. Our experts here at Danmer are happy to help.
Questions You May Want Answers to When Having Plantation Shutters Custom Made
When you speak with a design specialist to have your plantation shutters custom made, you may want to ask about the following elements:
• Wood Type – What type of wood is being used? Can you see examples? Can it be stained to match your décor? You always want to stay away from pine, as it is prone to bleeding.
• Tension – How is the tension adjusted? You want to make sure you won’t be dealing with drooping louvers at a later time.
• Hinges – What type is used and why?
• Edges – Are they rabbited or straight? Everyone has their own preference. Rabbited prevents light gaps when the panels are closed.
• Side Rails – How thick are the side panels? Are they strong enough to support the weight of the shutter?
When choosing shutters for your home, there is more to consider than the way a certain style looks. Plantation Shutters are a popular choice for their charming good looks as well as the flexibility that they offer. Choosing our custom made shutters will allow you to put them in your interior and create the atmosphere with an ideal blend of air flow, light control and privacy that you want in any room.
