The benefits of Plantation Shutters for windows and doors

Child safe shutters

Shutters are beautiful, they are versatile and practical, and those that fall in love with their elegance and style end up delighted by the myriad of additional benefits, here are just a few:

Shutters offer privacy while letting the light in

We have always wanted to preserve our privacy while being able to enjoy the light and view from our windows. The only solutions before shutters were a selection of vertical blinds which can encumber the view, or nets which have their limitations and are far from a style statement!

Shutters can be angled to reflect and filter the light while keeping prying eyes out. Allowing you to still enjoy the view while remaining private and secure.

The benefits of shutters

Shutters are child safe

It is a very sad fact that pull cords on many blinds pose a significant risk to toddlers and young children. Shutters are child safe. They are pull cord free and being hard wearing and low maintenance. Shutters are also very practical to have in rooms where children can reach windows.

For the same reasons shutters are also a fantastic product to consider for those prone to trips and falls. Perfect in the home, in nurseries, day care centres and even nursing homes.

Shutters are great in humid, hot or high sun areas

Many window coverings can be damaged by heat, humidity or bleaching by the sun. Shutters however are perfect for bathrooms and wet-rooms, kitchens and conservatories where heat, humidity and direct sunshine can damage or distort other window dressings.
