If you are looking to provide beauty and privacy to your home through shutters, there are a myriad of options that you can consider.  One of the most beautiful and classic types is the plantation shutter blinds.  Depending upon your needs, plantation shutter blinds may be a beautiful addition for your home. 

Plantation shutter blinds are available in many sizes, and are traditionally made from broad wooden slats mounted in a solid frame.
They do allow you to control the amount of sunlight that enters the space, and they are attractive, but you might find that they are not as functional as other types of blinds.

History is Important

The plantation style of shutter blinds has been around since the middle-ages and colonists upon reaching the Caribbean and America’s southern states, recognised that the design of the shutters suited the climate well and therefore introduced them to the plantation areas.
A home with plantation shutter blinds evokes a grand sense of history and style.  These plantation shutter blinds are aesthetically pleasing, as they are visually interesting and contrast beautifully against a window.

Plantation shutter blinds are usually accessed from the inside of the home. They are made with hinges that fold the blinds together, and the blinds are easily closed with a clasp.  Simple plantation shutter blinds fill an entire window.

Albeit that classically wood is the main material used for manufacturing plantation blinds it is now possible to find ones made from composites and plastics. Some of these materials may be considered to more durable and easier to clean the traditional wooden shutters

Advantages of Plantation Shutter Blinds

  • They have a unique appearance that is not achievable from any other source of blinds
  • Have a high security factor and when closed offer no clue as to a rooms contents

Disadvantages of Plantation Shutter Blinds
  • Plantation shutter blinds do not block out all of the light

However, even with the disadvantages of the plantation shutter blinds, they are blinds that add beauty to any room in your home.  Of all of the types of blinds, the plantation shutter blinds do add real character to your home and an ambience to whatever space where they are installed.
