when compared to plantation shutters (6th Dec 19 at 1:01am UTC)
No matter what kind of window treatment you get for your home, taking proper care of it is important. Cleaning helps keep dust from building up in your home and ensures that your window treatment will last longer. Blinds are at a disadvantage when compared to plantation shutters. Cleaning blinds is highly time-consuming, and the design of this type of window treatment makes it difficult to thoroughly clean. Getting between narrow slats and dealing with cords can be challenging, which allows more dust and debris to accumulate.

Plantation shutters provide more convenience when it comes to cleaning. The slats have more space in between, and there are no cords to get around. Wiping the surfaces of these shutters down on a regular basis is easy to do and keeps dust from building up on them.

"Plantation shutters can enhance the appearance of any room in your home while also providing you with improved energy efficiency and plenty of natural light. You’ll find that there are several styles and louver sizes to choose from, as well as different materials. How do you know which shutters to select for your home? Keep the following factors in mind, so you can narrow down your options and find the ideal shutters to suit your windows.

Panel Style

Plantation shutters are available in different panel styles. Full shutters cover an entire window and open one way, while double hung shutters include top and bottom shutters. With double hung shutters, you can open just the top or bottom or open both for more light. Café style shutters cover half of a window, which is a good option if you want to leave the view from the top half unobstructed.

Shutter Material

Plantation shutters are available in different materials, including poly and wood. Wood shutters offer an elegant, warm look that suits many homes, while poly provides improved durability and insulation for better efficiency. Both types offer certain benefits, depending on the quality and brand you choose. For example, Broadleaf poly shutters by Elegant Shutters provide reinforced louvers, UV resistance, moisture resistance and insulation that is 65 percent better than wood. Elegant Shutters’ Chelsea wood shutters, which are made from proprietary hardwood, offer an environmentally safe option that is durable and provides better light control.
