Plantation Shutters: The Versatile Choice

Are you thinking about getting rid of your outdated curtains and updating your windows with plantation shutters ? Plantation shutters are a versatile choice that allow you to control the amount of natural light in your home to increase your comfort and decrease your energy bills. Plus, they give a unique look to your home that is great if you think your décor needs a facelift. Keep reading to learn more about the advantages of choosing plantation shutters.

Natural Look, Less Heat

You probably know that blocking sunlight from your home can reduce your home’s temperature in the summer, thus reducing your monthly energy expenditures. However, heavy curtains and blinds often block too much light, creating a closed-in feel that is uncomfortable. With interior shutters, you can let in just enough natural light to enjoy the day, while keeping out unwanted heat. If you don’t use air conditioning on certain days but still want to keep the house cool, you can use shutters with open windows to allow a natural breeze to filtrate through the house without excess sunshine coming in.

Easy Maintenance

You may know from past experience that curtains are bulky and difficult to clean. They trap dirt and dust, thus requiring heavy washing and drying, a process that can up your energy bills in itself. In contrast, plantation shutters are easy to clean as part of your regular cleaning routine. All you need is a dust brush and a bit of polish or soap and water, depending on what your shutters are composed of. Just wipe the shutters clean of any trapped dust particles, and they’ll be fresh and ready to continue doing their job.

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.
