We’ve said this before, but we’ll say it again – Plantation Shutters are among the BEST window coverings out there because they actually ADD tangible value to your home. How, you may ask?

There are at least five ways in which plantation shutters can increase the value of your home.

  1. Shutters provide you with more access to the world outside – the ability to control the amount of light coming in your home from multiple directions – horizontally (by adjusting the slats) or vertically by opening the panels up altogether! Plantation Shutters are summertime’s favorite window coverings!

  2. The main selling point of wooden shutters is that they are more energy efficient than other window covering options. They can help to reduce energy bills by keeping the hot or cold weather from entering into the home. The slat-design of these window coverings make adjustments as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  3. Another selling feature that home buyers adore about wooden shutters is simply the appearance. Once upon a time, plantation shutters were only on the homes of the rich, and to this day, even though they are now affordable, many people still have the same general sense that window shutters add a rich elegance to a home.

  4. Shutters are a permanent feature; they are like furniture for the home’s windows. Unlike other options, these are permanent fixtures in the home and will not need replacing, which is a huge advantage in the eyes of potential home buyers. They also increase the value of your home! You can add the cost of the Plantation Shutters to your home’s selling price.

  5. Window shutters are also low maintenance and require little to no upkeep. Wooden shutters may require a coat of paint every few years in addition to regular cleaning. Need help maintaining your shutters? Read our how-to guide on cleaning Plantation Shutters here.
