They can be customized for your windows and there are new advances like motorization and invisible tilt that make them the ultimate choice when it comes to window coverings. Let Budget Blinds help you pick the perfect plantation shutters for your home.
They Do it All: Benefits
Planation shutters are a combination of beauty and practical functionality. They have an outstanding reputation for their great benefits. Of course they provide privacy and ventilation which are the first benefits you look for in a window covering but those are not the only things that they have to offer.
A major benefit is lowering your energy bill; this is due to their insulating design which comes in handy during those hot summer months. Plantation shutters come in a variety of louver sizes ranging from 1 ¼ “to 4 ½”, to protect you and your belongings from harmful UV rays. No matter your location shutters are a great option to help you save.
Another benefit they are known for is durability; they are constructed to be long-lasting, not requiring replacement every few years. Having all your windows covered by shutters creates a polished uniform look from the outside that adds curb appeal to your home, making them a valuable investment. Placing shutters on your windows might seem like a big step to take but overall they are the type of window treatment that will provide endless benefits throughout the years.
Lastly, plantation shutters are very low maintenance and easy to clean which is wonderful for whoever has to clean them. Most window coverings take time and effort to clean but shutters makes it simple. A major advantage to having them hinged into the window frame is that they can swing out so front and back sides are easy to reach. Just takes a quick wipe down to keep your windows looking beautiful.
All the Right Angles: Customization
Custom-made to fit any window, plantation shutters can be made constructed into any shape to properly fit your window frame. When they are accurately measured and installed it will ensure there are no gaps causing unwanted light. You can even customize the color of your plantation shutters to match your individual style. Budget Blinds Style Consultants are the experts when it comes to custom-made plantation shutters.
Custom shutters are impeccable for those hard to reach windows, arched windows and French doors. Skylights can be a common problem in households when it comes to covering them. Not every window treatment will be able to cover a skylight without issues, but shutters can be made to fit them and motorized for easy opening and closing.
Shutters can even be custom designed to fit arched windows, allowing you to cover the window but still keep its unique shape. An arched window shutter can be split by a divider rail that makes it easier to control light, privacy and the view between the top and the bottom of the window.
French doors can be covered by plantation shutters for a sophisticated look. You are still able to enjoy the view without sacrificing privacy. Customizing your French doors with plantation shutters is ideal because they are a long-lasting option and are mounted directly on the door to prevent movement. They have door handle cut-outs to facilitate opening and closing of the door. Customized plantation shutters are a perfect solution for all your difficult windows and doors.
Keep it Moving: Motorization
Budget Blinds uses motorization powered by Somfy® to make your life easier. As the world’s leading manufacturer of specialized motors and control systems, so you know you are getting the best when it comes to motorization with Somfy. Your shutters can be programmed with timers to allow for automatic opening and closing. They can be managed by wireless wall switches, hand-held remotes, a tablet or Smartphone app. Motorized shutters are child- and pet-safe because they are cordless.
One Easy Step: Invisible Tilt
The invisible tilt is one of the hottest developments in the window coverings world. It is a way to have beautiful plantation shutters with an unobstructed view. Instead of having a tilt rod down the middle of your shutter it is hidden from view giving the shutter a more modern and open look. With a gentle push up or down with one louver, it will move the others in unison to open or close. Also, absence of a tilt rod allows your shutters to have a tighter closed position and makes it easier to clean with one easy swipe. Budget Blinds offers invisible tilt on all our beautiful planation shutters.
