Do Plantation Shutters Increase a Home’s Value?

There are numerous window treatment options available—shades, blinds, drapes, etc.—but there is one option that is preferred time and again: plantation shutters. These window treatments are timeless and make an excellent addition to any home, whether its style is traditional, contemporary, or anything in between. If you are thinking about installing plantation shutters on your home, you may be wondering whether they will actually increase your home’s value. In many cases, the answer is yes. Plantation shutters will improve your home in several crucial areas, including:


Plantation shutters offer a clean, sophisticated look to any home, regardless of its current interior design. They typically look more high-end than blinds, and they can even stand alone without requiring curtains or drapes. In addition to boosting your home’s style, they will allow a customizable amount of light to enter your home, which will also brighten and beautify your space.

Energy Efficiency

Plantation shutters will increase your home’s value by being energy efficient. Since they are custom made to fit your windows, they will help insulate your home, blocking cold drafts when winter arrives and ventilating your space during hot summer days. This will help stabilize your home’s interior temperatures year round, which will lower the burden on your HVAC system and potentially lead to lower energy costs.

Ease of Maintenance

Homebuyers look for low-maintenance additions, and plantation shutters are just that. Unlike plastic blinds that may get damaged over time, plantation shutters are extra durable, so they require very little maintenance to keep them looking like new. In fact, simply wiping them down to keep off the dirt and dust is usually all that is required.

Bay Home & Window partners with Costco. Not only did the Costco collaboration help to give us confidence in the quality of Bay Home & Window, but we also got a great deal on our purchase of window coverings for our whole house! We're very happy with the quality of the product and the high-quality installation work. The window coverings look great.

We had cellular shades installed and it was just want we needed! Finally, we can block out the sun that is just merciless this time of year. I can tell the quality is superb, and install was painless. We had originally ordered light filtering shades and then discovered that it still made the rooms too bright. Bay Home made it easy and affordable to reorder the replacements. They really want us to enjoy our home. Thank you Bay Home & Windows!

Years ago we bought custom wood shutters throughout our home from Bay Home & Window. We had a great experience and our shutters still look great. Recently we remodeled our closet and had them back to create a custom closet. I had no idea how much we could love a closet. Everyone at Bay Home and Window was easy to work with they helped us figure out the design and utilized every inch of our odd sized space. From appointment scheduling to installation everyone was very professional and exceeded our expectations.
