Once upon a time, the easiest and fastest way to decorate a window was to hang curtains. Today, many people would rather have blinds or shutters over curtains, and I can see why. Blinds and plantation shutters are more modern and trendy, which is why we see more of them in houses today. Curtains are now like a thing of the past, and with how high maintenance they are, I am not surprised to see less and less of them in homes today.
In my house, we have a mixture of all 3 – curtains, shutters and blinds. When we first bought our house, I couldn’t make my mind up on what I wanted. So I went with a bit of all 3 to begin with. Then gradually swapped some of the curtains for blinds and shutters, and I am happy we did. I prefer the modern trendy look the blinds and shutters create. But now I have my eye on a specific type of window shutters.
I am very interested in getting window plantation shutters in our home at some point this year. We don’t have those sort of shutters at the moment and I have been dying to get them in some of our windows. These are the reasons why I’m dying to have some plantation shutters in my house this year.
Control Light and Extra Privacy
Having plantation shutters installed will give us extra privacy, and we can never have too much of that. Our neighborhood isn’t so busy, but sometimes I need that extra level of privacy. Plantation shutters would allow the control of natural light and privacy. This would come in so handy for us especially in the summer months. I like the thought of being able to independently control the amount of light within my home. The fact that I can keep unwelcome attention out is also amazing. For this reason alone, I want some window shutters installed as soon as possible.
