Plantation shutters, or plantation blinds, got their name due to their origin in the American South. They were typically seen on the large farms and estates that produced coffee, tobacco, sugar cane, and cotton. These farms were usually known as Plantations. Plantation shutters are characterised by their wide louvres, whereas other window shutters tend to have narrower wedge-shaped louvres.

DISCOVER MORE Our Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are an in-demand alternative to roller blinds and curtains. Considering the functional and aesthetic gains plantation shutters offer, its little wonder people are switching to these attractive window coverings. Traditionally made from wood, plantation owners usually installed plantation shutters outside a window in the Old American South. While this custom continues, most UK homeowners opt to install plantation shutters on the inside of the windows.
Benefits of Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are appreciated for their versatility and ability to change a room’s look and feel positively.
Made from durable materials, modern plantation shutters do not split or peel and, with minimal care, remain in excellent condition for a long time. As a result, you will not need to replace them for an exceptionally long time, and when this time arrives, it is usually possible to use the same outer frames and only replace the slats.
Plantation shutters are also one the most effortless window coverings to clean; all they need is a quick dusting and the occasional wipe with a damp cloth.
As our plantation shutters fit snugly inside your existing window frames; they will help insulate the home. When closed, they create a barrier over the windows, keeping the heat in when it is cool and keeping it out when it’s warm. When open, they promote efficient airflow and help ventilate the house.
What Windows Are Plantation Shutters Suitable For?
Plantation shutters are often the covering of choice on patio doors and bay windows but can be produced to fit just about any window style and are the perfect option where privacy and light control is required.
They act as a buffer between your windows and the interior of the room, so they act as a sound insulator and are perfect for windows that are close to busy roads or pedestrian traffic.
