How can plantation window shutters save you money?

Here’s the bit you have been waiting for, how installing shutters on your bay windows will benefit you AND save you money in the long-term:

  • They can reduce you heating and energy bills. When the slats are closed on your plantation shutters they create an insulating barrier between themselves and the window stopping the cold getting in, and reducing the amount of heating you need to keep you home warm.

  • They can increase the value of your home. We understand that installing shutters may seem like a large expense in the moment, but over time they are a major investment. They will improve the look and feel of your home and windows, appeal to potential buys and possibly pay back more than their original cost.

Therefore, when compared to other window treatment options, window shutters are actually a more affordable option in the long-term.
