They match any type of decor, and they are classic and timeless window treatment products that never go out of style, so you won’t need to replace them with a newer trendy product.
Plantation shutters are the only window treatment product that is included in the sale of a home as part of the house because they are considered permanent due to their longevity, so they do add value to any home.
The Benefits of Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters have many great benefits for your home as window treatments and also for doors.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Plantation shutters may be hardwood or composite, and each has insulating properties to give you energy efficiency in your home. Natural wood is made of fibers that provide insulation, while composite shutters are man-made to also give you extra insulation on your doors and windows. In the dog days of summer in Arizona, you can close your shutter panels and the louvers to trap warm air between your window treatments and the window. This doesn’t allow warm air into your interior spaces, so you need less air conditioning to keep your home cool. In the cooler months, you can swing open your shutters and let the warmth of the sun inside use less heating.
Increased Privacy and Security
The louvers on plantation shutters are made to slightly overlap each other when they are closed. Plantation shutters add perfect privacy because no one from outside can see inside your home, making shutters perfect for bathrooms and bedrooms, as well as all other areas of your home. By the same token, you get an extra layer of security to your home because no one can see if you are actually at home or not with your plantation shutters closed. It’s a well-known fact that if a burglar can’t see what goods you have and if they don’t know if someone is home, they will move on to target another home.
Enhanced Aesthetics and Curb Appeal
Your home will be welcoming to all with plantation shutters as they always look crisp and clean on the inside of your home in your windows and doors. From the outside, shutters give your home a cozy curb appeal that is loved by all.
How Plantation Shutters Can Increase the Value of Your Home
Plantation shutters increase the value of your home in several manners. Potential buyers will love that shutters are energy efficient and lead to lower utility bills to make your home more attractive than others without plantation shutters. Home buyers will save money on their energy bills all year round, making your home very attractive.
The enhanced aesthetics and curb appeal will be something that sticks in the mind of prospective buyers to make your home more desirable than others while increasing the market value in the real estate market.
The durability and longevity of plantation shutters are the ultimate out of all types of window treatments. Plantation shutters generally have a lifetime warranty on them and are built to withstand unlimited use over the years. Potential buyers won’t need to replace the window coverings any time soon, and this saves them money after purchasing your home.
Considerations for Determining the Value Added by Plantation Shutters
The return on investment (ROI) for adding plantation shutters to your home is excellent. High-quality hardwood shutters are more expensive than composite shutters; therefore, they add even more value to your home’s appraisal.
The market value of your home will increase if you have plantation shutters because they will remain in the house as part of a fixed sale asset and permanent fixtures.
Your neighborhood impacts your home’s value or perceived value with plantation shutters. Areas that are older but have excellent upkeep with more historic houses will be worth much more with the addition of plantation shutters.
Plantation shutters give you so many benefits other than the obvious in their beauty. They can be painted or stained in any color you wish; they are highly adaptable to all windows and doors, no matter the size or shape, and they never go out of style.
