Saving Money with Shutters; Plantation style vs. regular
If you are looking at installing new shutters, plantation style shutters offer you some unique advantages over other models. These shutters can provide up to a 65 percent reduction in light, letting you protect your home from high cooling bills during the summer. They can also help protect the home from window drafts during the winter months, giving you lower heating bills and saving you money every month.
Space Saving Shutters, Plantation Style
Most shutters protrude into the room and cause you to lose space around the window areas. If you want to preserve the most room with your shutters, plantation style offers you a flat surface so there is no extra space lost on the walls. They also fit inside the window or doorframe, so you do not need the extra space around the frame to accommodate the shutter when it is fully extended.
