If you want to make your Brisbane home more vibrant while adding an extra layer of security to your property, you can’t go wrong with plantation shutters.
Plantation shutters are becoming increasingly popular in Australia—and they come in a range of styles or varieties.
Now, as one of Australia’s leading blind and shutter experts, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about plantation shutters, covering the core concepts, benefits, and of course, choices.
What are plantation shutters?
Bold, sturdy, and built to last, plantation shutters are an elegant branch of the interior and exterior blind family.
The name derives from the plantations in the deep south of America—large buildings with wooden clad shutters fixed to the inside as well outside of the property.
In addition to their striking looks, plantation shutters are unique in the way that they aren’t fixed in a single position. Instead, it’s possible to tilt the slats or louvres at a variety of angles depending on the level of natural light you want to let into your home.
The benefits of installing plantation shutters
Plantation shutters will offer a wealth of benefits to your Brisbane home—and we’re going to take a look at them now.
Noise reduction & insulation
Boasting a sturdy, multi-slated design, plantation blinds are excellent at reducing outside noises, creating a calmer, more peaceful home in the process.
In addition to their noise reducing qualities, plantation shutters also provide an extra layer of insulation, which will not only keep you cosy in the cooler months but also reduce your annual energy bills. A real win-win.
As mentioned, you can fix plantation blind slats in several positions, meaning that it’s possible to control the amount of natural light you let into a room.
If you’re looking for bright airy warmth, for instance, you can open the shutters right up. But, if you want to create a sense of ambience, shutting the slats three-quarters the way down will do the trick. And, of course, there’s pretty much every other type of variation in between.
We did touch on this earlier but it’s important so we’ll say it again: plantation blinds provide additional home security.
You can’t put a price on peace of mind or safety and as plantation shutters are durable and crafted with top-grade materials, they not only provide added insulation, aesthetics, and light control, but they also make your home more secure. This is especially beneficial if you have pets or children.
Looks. Looks. Looks
There’s no doubt about it: plantation shutters look stunning. With a perfect balance of modern chic and traditional elegance, plantation shutters work wonderfully in just about every room in the home.
Plantation shutters will definitely enhance your home’s interiors—and as they are popular as well as timeless, they will add value to your home. An excellent investment.
