Frequently Asked Questions about Plantation Shutters
What are plantation shutters?
Plantation shutters are a versatile and stylish window covering option that adds elegance and functionality to any space. These shutters are typically made of wood or composite materials and feature adjustable louvres that allow you to control the room's light and privacy.
What are the benefits?
One of the benefits shutters are often chosen for the home, particularly in street facing properties or in more built up areas is for the privacy they provide. Along with privacy, one of the main benefits of plantation shutters is undoubtedly the level of light control that they provide. This really sets shutters apart from alternative window dressings.
Can they be installed on any type of window?
Yes. We can install plantation shutters on almost any type of window. Their versatility makes them the ideal candidate for all the windows in your home. There are a few considerations to make prior to installing them, including the type of mount, frame, panels, and more – but we'll be happy to go over all of these factors when you chat with our team.
Are they easy to clean and maintain?
Yes. Plantation shutters are a breeze to clean and maintain, allowing you to keep your home looking lovely for years. Just follow these easy steps to preserve the beauty and longevity of your shutters:
- Regular dusting is key to maintaining plantation shutters. Use a soft cloth, feather duster, or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to remove dust from the louvres and frame.
- For more stubborn dirt or stains, dampen a cloth or sponge with mild soapy water and gently wipe the affected areas. Avoid using excessive water or harsh cleaning solutions that could damage the shutters.
- Pay attention to hard-to-reach areas and corners, thoroughly cleaning all surfaces.
- After cleaning, use a dry cloth to remove any moisture and prevent water spots or warping.
- If you have wooden plantation shutters, it's important to periodically apply a wood-friendly polish or conditioner to keep the wood nourished and protected.
- Check the hardware and hinges regularly to ensure they are functioning properly. Tighten any loose screws or repair any damaged parts promptly.
- Avoid using abrasive materials or strong chemicals that can scratch or discolour the shutters.
What is the difference between other shutters and plantation shutters?
The biggest difference between these shutters lies in their design: plantation shutters feature adjustable slats, known as louvres, which enable control over the amount of light entering through the windows, similar to Venetian blinds. On the other hand, traditional shutters are typically solid and serve the purpose of completely blocking out light and providing window security, but they lack the ability to regulate light levels.
