Plantation shutters are a timeless design that will never go out of style. Exquisitely crafted and meant to last, they come in a variety of options like real hardwood and composite faux wood to match your refined taste. Shutters have an abundance of benefits that will cater to your high standards. They can be customized for your windows and there are new advances like motorization and invisible tilt that make them the ultimate choice when it comes to window coverings.

They Do it All: Benefits

Plantation shutters are a combination of beauty and practical functionality. They have an outstanding reputation for their great benefits. Of course they provide privacy and ventilation which are the first benefits you look for in a window covering but those are not the only things that they have to offer.

A major benefit is lowering your energy bill; this is due to their insulating design which comes in handy during those cooler months. Plantation shutters come in a variety of louver size, to protect you and your belongings from harmful UV rays. No matter your location shutters are a great option to help you save.

Another benefit they are known for is durability; they are constructed to be long-lasting, not requiring replacement every few years. Having all your windows covered by shutters creates a polished uniform look from the outside that adds curb appeal to your home, making them a valuable investment. Placing shutters on your windows might seem like a big step to take but overall they are the type of window treatment that will provide endless benefits throughout the years.

Lastly, plantation shutters are very low maintenance and easy to clean. A major advantage to having them hinged into the window frame is that they can swing out so front and back sides are easy to reach. Just takes a quick wipe down to keep your windows looking beautiful.

All the Right Angles: Customization

Custom-made to fit any window, plantation shutters can be constructed into any shape to properly fit your window frame. When they are accurately measured and installed it will ensure there are no gaps causing unwanted light. You can even customize the colour of your plantation shutters to match your individual style.

Custom shutters are impeccable for those hard to reach windows, arched windows and French doors. Skylights can be a common problem in households when it comes to covering them.

Keep it Moving: Motorization

Budget Blinds uses motorization powered by Somfy® to make your life easier. As the world’s leading manufacturer of specialized motors and control systems, so you know you are getting the best when it comes to motorization. Your shutters can be programmed with timers to allow for automatic opening and closing. They can be managed by wireless wall switches, hand-held remotes, a tablet or Smartphone app. Motorized shutters are child- and petsafe because they are cordless.

One Easy Step: Invisible Tilt

The invisible tilt is a way to have beautiful plantation shutters with an unobstructed view. Instead of having a tilt rod down the middle of your shutter it is hidden from view giving the shutter a more modern and open look.

Plantation shutters are the picture-perfect window covering. They have it all! With high standards and elaborate features, you should have them on every window in your home. Let Budget Blinds transform the look and feel of your home with plantation shutter s.
