Do Plantation Shutters Add Value to Your Home?

Plantation shutters are exceptionally popular window treatments and have been for centuries. Moreover, because they’re typically custom-crafted and professionally installed on a home’s windows, many real estate experts view them as permanent fixtures that will indeed add value to your home if you decide to sell it.

High-quality plantation shutters are often among the pricier window treatments you could invest in – especially if your personal tastes lean toward shutters crafted from genuine wood. However, there are beautiful and highly durable faux wood shutters on the market these days that are typically less expensive; and, for the bathroom or laundry room, they may make a better choice because they’re resistant to humidity. Additionally, investing in plantation shutters may provide you with some thrifty advantages you haven’t thought about. Here are a few:

Solo Act

Unlike window blinds and shadings, plantation shutters usually do all the work of adorning your windows and providing shade and privacy on their own. There’s no need to pair them with valances, cornice boards, or drapes, which would add to your window treatment costs.

Energy Efficiency

Interior shutters that are custom made and expertly installed on your windows will fit snugly and thus effectively block heat transfer that can drive up your heating and cooling costs.

Longevity

Plantation shutters are known to last for decades, and they never go out of style. This means you won’t need to update your window treatments every few years to keep your home décor up to date.
