Why are Plantation Shutters so Popular?

Custom Window Shutters If you're considering custom interior shutters for your home, you've no doubt discovered that there are many options to choose from. One of the most popular choices is the plantation shutter. These shutters offer a great amount of flexibility, allowing you to enjoy the perfect blend of air flow, light control, and privacy, making them a great choice for any room in the house all year round.

Plantation shutters are available in a variety of styles, from single, fixed window panels with adjustable slats (louvers) to large hinged panels for sliding glass doors. They can be crafted from durable hardwoods or high-tech synthetics, and each type offers its own benefits. At Danmer, your shutters are custom fit to your windows and doors, whether you need shutters for a bay window or a classic double hung sash. Plantation shutter costs can vary, so consult Danmer for more information on custom pricing based on your needs.

Reduce Energy Usage with Plantation Shutters

If you're looking for ways to reduce your energy usage, plantation shutters are an excellent choice. By giving you control over light and airflow, you can adjust the temperature naturally. In the summer, adjust the louvers so that less light comes in, but allow air to flow freely. This can naturally reduce the temperature in the home without having to run energy-hungry fans and cooling units. In the winter, allow plenty of light to enter while keeping the glass windows closed for natural solar heating even when it's chilly outside. Custom plantation shutters can also help provide another layer of insulation, reducing the amount of heat transfer into and out of the home. Choosing the right shutters can actually reduce your home energy bills by as much as 35%.

Whether you want something traditional, like the classic white-louvered shutters, or something a little more striking, like our beautifully printed Masterpiece shutters, you'll find a great selection of both wooden and synthetic plantation shutters on our site.
