Why Choose Plantation Shutters for Your Home?

Interior Window Shutters – Practical and Aesthetically Pleasing

Over the last few years, plantation shutters have become an immensely popular choice with modern homeowners looking to increase the value of their properties whilst improving the overall look and feel of each room in the house.  With a wide range of styles and materials to choose from, plantation shutters don’t just look fantastic, they are also highly practical and they will also save you a considerable amount of money in a number of unexpected ways.

Energy Efficiency

At Riverside Shutters, every one of our customers can take advantage of our free, expert measuring service which means that your newly ordered shutters will fit your windows perfectly, without even the smallest unsightly gap.  When the slats are closed, the sun’s rays are kept well at bay and this helps to maintain a cool feeling in the heat of summer.  In the winter time, made to measure plantation shutters will help to keep the warmth in when the slats are closed, although they can be fully opened to let in the maximum amount of daylight on those gloomy afternoons when it begins to get dark early, well before the evening sets in.

Built to Last

Unlike curtains and certain fabric blinds, plantation shutters have a unique, timeless quality which means that they will look great both now and in the future.  With a 5 year guarantee, which also covers parts and labour, our beautifully designed shutters will look as good as new up to 10 or more years after the installation date.  They are also easy to keep clean, requiring minimal dusting perhaps once a fortnight, with no need for washing at regular intervals.

Easy to Control

With interior wooden window shutters, you have the option of letting as little or as much of the sun’s natural light into your home as you wish, with the simplest level of interaction.  If you want to enjoy the view of the garden in spring, then you can simply open up the shutters all the way and let the full amount of daylight into your kitchen, bedroom or living room.  However, if you want to enjoy a little privacy, you can simply close the shutters up completely and in a matter of seconds you can easily keep prying eyes at a distance.

Although some people may think that plantation shutters are quite expensive, this is simply not the case.  Particularly when one considers the longevity, durability and extra value that can be added to a property’s asking price merely by getting interior window blinds fitted and installed as an alternative to other window treatments.
