How Long Do Shutters Last?

White shutters in bathroom window.One of the reasons why interior shutters, also known as plantation shutters, are among the most sought-after window treatments is their longevity. When you invest in high-quality, custom plantation shutters for your home, they’re likely to last 50 years or more. In fact, many real estate experts say the elegance and longevity of custom interior shutters can make your home more appealing to potential buyers and, in some cases, even increase home values.

Although plantation shutters may require a bigger financial investment than some other window treatments, they can be worth it because:

  • They look great on their own – no need to add curtains or valances.
  • They’re installed snugly against the window frame, which provides an exceptional insulating effect that can translate into increased energy efficiency and potentially lower heating and cooling costs.
  • They offer a high degree of light and privacy control, simply by angling the slats (or louvers).
