Many associate traditional plantation shutters with the historical height of the South, reminiscing about old plantations and huge, grandiose mansions. Although plantation shutters did gain their popularity and unique style during this time, shutters date back to ancient Greece.
Shutters were originally designed to serve three basic functions: light control, ventilation, and protection. Although they still serve these purposes today, modern shutters also serve a much more decorative function.
Custom shutters elevate the design of any room, as they look more like an architectural element than a window treatment. Plantation shutters provide a simple and stylish solution that compliments almost every style of interior design from traditional to contemporary, while helping improve your home’s resale value thanks to their universal appeal. They are also versatile and less expensive than custom draperies.
If you have a home with gorgeous windows, you want to make sure you choose the perfect window covering so you can enjoy every aspect of your windows. For a classic look, choose white plantation shutters to lighten up your home and offer a timeless and inviting addition to a room’s décor. This classic look works great in kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. If you’re looking for a more elegant and refined look, a dark wood variety is the perfect fit for home offices, dining rooms, or the master bedroom.
