Plantation shutters are a popular design option in many houses, but there are practical reasons for installing these on your windows.  If you’re trying to

decide between traditional window treatments, such as curtains, or plantation shutters, here are 5 reasons why plantation shutters are your best choice.

1.) Their energy efficient design saves your money. These shutters are sized to fit your windows so there are no gaps around the outside. When you close them up, they keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. 
2.) They are a timeless look that won’t ever need to be changed. Changing drapery out with a new look or style gets expensive. Plantation shutters will hold up and look great for decades.
3.) They add value to your home. Watch House Hunters? Buyers always love any house with plantation shutters.
4.) The wide slats allow you to control them depending on your needs. Want to enjoy the view? Open them all the way! Trying to keep the house cool in the summer? Close them up. Somewhere in between allows you to have some filtered light while still providing privacy.
5.) Plantation shutters are low maintenance. With an occasional dusting they look great for years. It definitely beats dragging heavy drapery to the dry cleaners.
