Why Choose Plantation Shutters?
Plantation shutters come with a heap of aesthetic and practical advantages, the clean lines of the louvred slats bring a bright and fresh feel to any room. Practically, these are a great solution for privacy and easily kept clean with a quick dust over, which can be a bit of a challenge on some of our softer fabric blinds.
Plantation shutters are also more “fitted” vs other traditional blinds, as they are fitted snugly within a support frame. Usually when fitted this frame is then drilled to the sides of your window recess.
You also have many modern updates to this classic product; from flame-retardant faux wood shutters that are crack resistant, warp resistant and waterproof, to hard-wearing, sustainably grown real woods. Each colour and option have been carefully curated to match demand and trends.
Why Choose Real Wood Shutters?
Real wooden shutters used to have two main issues : they were extremely heavy and expensive due to the hardwood source. Now we have a new range of real wood shutters, the Kensington Collection, still made using hard wood and using a sustainably grown source. The wood used in our shutters is crafted using the Paulownia tree, which is also known as the Japanese Empress tree.
A fast grower, and lighter in weight than other sources, this makes this special hard wood, as a result, have an improved carbon footprint vs other hard wood sources. The lighter weight, but durable material helps to ensure not only a high-quality product, but one that’s also less prone to issues over years or decades of time. Painted, or wrapped to create the smooth finished look, our Kensington range of shutters still have the same high standards as all our other products. That’s a promise.
Why Choose Faux Wood Shutters?
Our range of Faux Wood Shutters, the Bromley Collection, features faux wooden slats, are made using HSPVC (Heat-shrinkable polyvinyl chloride), which creates a lightweight, waterproof and flame-retardant product. Fantastic for bathrooms, kitchens and high-traffic areas, these materials came in the modern market in response to scarce and expensive resources.
These shutters are designed to stand the test of time, whilst these faux wooden shutters receive an improved carbon footprint due to their lightweight carbon-dense material VS traditional wooden materials used pre-1980s. Their durability also helps improve the overall longevity of the product. Available in beautiful shades, which look just as lovely as the real thing, these are created to be long-lasting and offer a high-quality, modern finish at a fraction of the cost you’ll find on the high-street or through a trader.
What Size Louvre For Plantation Shutters?
The size of the slat (blade/louvre) is entirely personal preference, we offer three different size widths and as a quick guide this is what we recommend.
- 64mm Slat – The most popular choice for any window size
- 76mm Slat – Best for medium to large windows
- 89mm Slat – Better suited for very large windows and doors
Are Plantation Shutters Good For Blackout?
Shutters are great for their many features, and keeping your space nice and dark is one of those great benefits. While you will not get a complete blackout from plantation shutters, they are great at controlling light and reducing any excess in the space.
Please take into account this is for full height and tier-on-tier shutter, café style are not suitable as they cover only a bottom portion of the window.
The rule of thumb when it comes to ordering shutters to darken a space is as follows: the larger the slat width, the more light it will block out from the room, this is because smaller slats create more gaps which can lead to excess light leakage. If you require a full blackout, we would recommend layering your shutters with a pair of blackout curtains to combine the effect for a total blackout.
Will Plantation Shutters Increase The Value Of My Home?
There’s nothing better for the value of your home than a little bit of kerb appeal. Shutters are a great way to transform the appeal of a home, especially if the home is sold with the shutters pre-installed. You can really make a house seem more upmarket and expensive by theming the decor to be a little more modern and contemporary, as people are happier to work on a simple base.
Will Shutters Keep Out Noise?
Shutters are one of the best items we offer if reducing obnoxious outdoor traffic sounds. Due to their thick wooden structure and solid construction, they are great at absorbing and educing the ambient noise levels in your space. By creating a barrier between the window and your room, perfect for a cosy and serene atmosphere.
If you live in really noisy conditions, why not layer the two over each other for a double up effect and an even quieter space!
What Is The Most Popular Style Of Shutters?
There are three types of shutters that are the most commonly available; Full Height, Tier-on-Tier and Café style. The most commonly ordered type of shutter for us here at 247 are the full height style. Here is a small description of the three styles:
- Full Height: full height are the standard shutters you will be used to seeing, they have single panel doors which run from top to bottom of the frame in the window. These are great for a simplistic look that brings a contemporary feel and a simple way to add some classy style to any space.
- Tier-On-Tier: Tier on tier style shutters are very similar to full height shutters, however they feature a bar running horizontally across the frame to separate the doors into two separate panels for the top and bottom halves of the window. This style is great for having complete control over the light and privacy by giving you the option to have certain panels open such as the top sides shut to avoid and intrusive glare from the sun, whist keeping a nice view of the outdoors.
- Café Style: Café style shutters are the type that is commonly seen in French cafés and coffee shops, these are the shutters that start at the bottom of the window and end, usually, halfway up the window glass. These are great for keeping a room feeling bright and open, whist still having the option to keep the nosey neighbours out!
