The most common Plantation shutter is the wood plantation shutter, but as with all wood furniture, they need to be looked after and maintained. For one, wood is significantly stronger than vinyl, making it a better fit for long, single units that don’t require any additional supports. The natural aesthetic of wood is a major selling point
While wood needs more work to last longer, it is also a lot more versatile than vinyl. It can be repainted and re-varnished every time you want to change its look or its colour. Simple.
There are a lot of different woods to choose from, each with their own properties, strengths and weaknesses. So it’s always best to take a careful look at the wood before buying.
