What Makes Plantation Shutters the Best Option for Bedrooms?February 28, 2020
Window treatments provide utmost comfort in any room of the house, if chosen appropriately and installed correctly. Different features of a home require certain types of window treatments since they perform various functions. While ideal for all areas of the home, plantation shutters are the best option for bedrooms. Below are some of the reasons why.
The first benefit that comes to mind is probably the most important for a bedroom – light blockage. Plantation shutters prevent the harsh morning sun from glaring into the room by keeping your shutter slats closed. While they are not complete blackout shutters, they will keep the room dark, and are designed to prevent light seeping through. There is a light block piece on the shutter frames that minimizes light entering between the shutter panels and frames.If you have more than one panel in your window opening, the panels are designed to overlap one another, again to minimise how much light enters the room from in between the panels.
Interior plantation shutters for bedrooms offer superior privacy. Once you are ready to rise and shine, many window treatments must be fully open to allow any light to come in. With shutters, you can partially open the slats to allow light entry, while still maintaining privacy.With the slats slightly angled, natural light can flood inyet still retain privacy. You can also opt for split tilt rods, allowing the top section to be more open to allow maximum light in, with the bottom section more angled to allow for maximum privacy.
Aside from keeping out the sun in the mornings, plantation shutters offer other benefits that promote a good night’s sleep.The insulating properties of plantation shutters reduce outside noises that can keep you up at night. They also create a barrier to prevent outside temperatures from affecting the bedroom temperature.This is not just eco-friendly, but also means not getting too hot or too cold. Minimising how often your heating or cooling system kicks on during the night can help you rest more soundlyas well as reducing power usage.
Plantation shutters are one of the very few window furnishings that allow windows to be open and allow the breeze in while still covering the window, maintaining privacy and controlling light. No flapping or banging like some other window furnishings. They are great for those hot days when you want to allow breeze in but not direct sunlight; and also great for those hot summer nights, windows can be left open for airflow while blades can be angled for light control. Opt for Thermopoly shutters, and your shutters won’t suffer even if hit by an unexpected rainstorm.
