Blinds and shutters serve similar purposes since they are both meant to regulate how much light gets into your house and offer you more privacy. That said, there are some distinctions that separate shutters from blinds, and the option you pick is determined by how you want your house to look and feel. Today, we will compare the benefits of plantation shutters and window blinds so you can decide which to add to your home.
Benefits of Plantation Shutters
Like many other shutters, plantation shutters serve as strong window coverings that protect your home’s interior from excess light. Plantation shutters, in particular, offer your home a more traditional look. You can also have wider louvers, which grant you a larger range of light protection. This makes plantation shutters very popular.
Another feature plantation shutters offer is that they can be installed either on the inside or outside of the window. This flexibility is handy because the placement of your shutters may vary based on the room where they’re being installed. Smaller rooms often prefer inside mounts while larger rooms prefer outside mounts.
You should remember that there will be some upkeep needed to preserve your plantation shutters. While it is less cleaning than other window treatments, you’ll still need to clean them from time to time, so you should install them somewhere that can be reached easily.
Benefits of Blinds
Blinds are a variety of window treatment that have been around for many years, and they can go well with nearly any style of home. They’re great for controlling how much light enters your home in a similar manner to plantation shutters. They can help regulate your room’s temperature by serving as an insulator. You can also get blinds in a variety of different materials, which can change the aesthetic of your home. All of these factors allow blinds a great deal of versatility that lets them complement practically house. That said, they are used more often in smaller rooms and are usually paired with either drapes or curtains that give your room a more cozy feel.
