The Benefits of Plantation Shutters

Aug 13, 2017

Plantation Shutters Phoenix, AZPlantation shutters take their name from the grand plantations in the American South. They were, however, first used in ancient Greece as louvered window coverings made of marble that added security and protection from severe weather. Today’s plantation shutters are becoming increasingly popular.

Customers in states like Arizona, Nevada, California, and Utah purchase them for their ability to reduce the intensity of the sun. By reducing the damaging effects of UV rays, they add extra protection against the fading of furniture and floors. Other major benefits of plantation shutters include:

Ease of Use: The separate controls on plantation shutters make it possible to open the top and bottom louvers separately, which is particularly good for transitioning from day to night.

Curb Appeal: These shutters are viewable from the outside as well and are known to add curb appeal to any home.

Increased Property Value: Adding plantation shutters makes your home more appealing to potential buyers as they stay with the home when it is sold.

Privacy: The added level of privacy also adds more security. Blocking visual access is a deterrent to would-be criminals who try to scope out your possessions.

Sound Barrier: Plantation shutters add an extra level of noise protection against sounds coming through your windows.

This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!

The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
