Once upon a time, the easiest and fastest way to decorate a window was to hang curtains. Today, many people would rather have blinds or shutters over curtains, and I can see why. Blinds and window shutters are more modern and trendy, which is why we see more of them in houses today. Curtains are now like a thing of the past, and with how high maintenance they are, I am not surprised to see less and less of them in homes today.
In my house, we have a mixture of all 3 – curtains, shutters and blinds. When we first bought our house, I couldn’t make my mind up on what I wanted. So I went with a bit of all 3 to begin with. Then gradually swapped some of the curtains for blinds and shutters, and I am happy we did. I prefer the modern trendy look the blinds and shutters create. But now I have my eye on a specific type of window shutters.
I am very interested in getting window plantation shutters in our home at some point this year. We don’t have those sort of shutters at the moment and I have been dying to get them in some of our windows. These are the reasons why I dying to have some plantation shutters in my house this year.
Control Light and Extra Privacy
Having plantation shutters installed will give us extra privacy, and we can never have too much of that. Our neighbourhood isn’t so busy, but sometimes I need that extra level of privacy. Plantation Shutters would allow the control of natural light and privacy. This would come in so handy for us especially in the summer months. I like the thought of being able to independently control the amount of light within my home. The fact that I can keep unwelcome attention out is also amazing. For this reason alone, I want some window plantation shutters installed as soon as possible.
Sound and Thermal Insulation
Sometimes my street could be a little noisy with kids running around on their bikes, and neighbours with their lawn mowers. Having plantation shutters installed means I won’t have to deal with all that noise. I will be able to effectively reduce the amount of noise in my home. These shutters also help keep the home cool during the summer, which is amazing, especially when the heatwave hits. It also helps retain the heat during the winter, which will help with the energy consumption. Plantation shutters are great for every season, which makes me even want them the more.
Easy to Maintain
Plantation shutters are very easy to maintain, and are super easy to clean. They don’t ask for too much, not high maintenance like regular curtains. All they need is a duster or a damp cloth to wipe, and they are sparkly clean.
Made to Measure
These window shutters can be made to measure to fit any type or shape of window. This makes them highly versatile, which is another reason why I am dying to have them installed in our house. Some of our bedroom windows are very different. We have struggled to get the right curtains or blinds for them, so made to measure plantation shutters would be so good. They will definitely complete my home decor.
Plantation shutters come in different designs, so there should be 1 to suit every home. I am looking forward to shopping the various styles and designs available. Variety is the spice of life, so I love the fact that there are various options available.
I currently have my mind on Plantation Shutters as the next home decor my house needs. It would be great to have some installed in our bedrooms before the end of this summer, but let’s see how it goes. We may have them installed a lot sooner if the funds cooperate.
