Benefits of Shutters

In addition to the stylish look, plantation shutters provide a quiet sophistication to your home. They also provide several functional benefits, including privacy and light control. The wooden slats that the shutters are comprised of block light very effectively, and you can simply tilt the louvers to redirect the light that enters your home. In addition, the slats can be operated independently, so you can leave the bottom slats closed for privacy and keep the top ones open to let in natural light. Additionally, custom shutters don’t have any dangling cords, which makes them a safer option for homes with children and pets.
