Why Choose Plantation Shutters

Deciding the perfect window coverings for your home can be a difficult decision with so many options available.  In Kitsap County, plantation shutters are a good choice because they can withstand humid and wet climates.  Additionally, plantation shutters provide many other great benefits, such as:

  • Versatility: Plantation shutters are custom fit to any window size, allowing them to be used in a variety of locations.  Additionally, they can be used as room dividers or cabinet covers.   You can also decide between wide slats or narrow slats, depending on your needs for light control.  Most wood shutters can also be painted or stained any color to match your décor.
  • Aesthetically pleasing: Plantation shutters offer a timeless look that can easily match any décor.  They enhance the architectural appeal of your home, increasing the overall value.
  • modern room

  • Privacy: Plantation shutters are easily adjusted to let more or less light into the home.  Similarly, closing them can create complete privacy inside the home.
  • Energy Efficiency: Because plantation shutters are custom fit to the exact size of your window, there is no gap allowing air in or out, which increases the energy efficiency.  Additionally, they can be adjusted to deflect the sunlight to let more light in or out depending on the season.

  • Ventilation: Plantation shutters can be adjusted to allow the maximum air in without compromising privacy.  Additionally, even with the windows fully opened, plantation shutters do not flap, blow, or flutter in the wind, making them a very quiet window choice.  Open up your plantation shutters to let in the cool breezes in Kitsap County! 
  • Durability: Since plantation shutters are built from wood or faux wood materials, they are very durable and built to last.  They might be initially more costly than alternative blind options, but they last for many years, thus reducing any additional costs required to replace them.
  • Low maintenance: Plantation shutters are incredibly easy to maintain and clean.  Simply dust them occasionally and spot clean as needed.
