The Benefits Of Plantation Shutters

The benefits of plantation shutters

Most window coverings are simply a cover for your windows. They either let light and air through, or they do not. Plantation shutters, on the other hand, provide a far greater degree of flexibility and a long list of benefits – not to mention they are a timeless-looking option that won’t go out of style. They will transform your windows in many ways that go beyond just looking great. Below is a list of the benefits of installing plantation shutters in your home or office space.


Plantation shutters offer one of the highest insulation ratings of any window covering product. Their large slats allow for greater airflow when they are open, but when they are closed, are excellent insulators and can help homeowners save money on heating and cooling expenses by helping to regulate the interior temperature of the house.

Light control

When choosing how to dress your windows, light is a crucial consideration. Would you like the room to be brighter or darker? Shutters offer you full control of the light levels in your room, and allow you to control the amount of light going into your rooms better than curtains, so you’ll need less artificial lighting.

Easy to clean

It can be inconvenient to have to remove curtains to wash them or try and dust Venetian blinds. Another advantage of having plantation shutters is that they are so easy to clean. To maintain the cleanliness of your slats, we recommend wiping them down with a damp cloth once a week.

Peace and quiet

A good night’s sleep is quite invigorating. Unlike blinds, plantation shutters are proven to be a natural sound barrier. Our wood designs are effective noise shields. Once you have your window shutters installed, you’ll enjoy a more peaceful space and better sleep.


The simple design of plantation shutters remains timeless. Plantation shutters are sleek and unobtrusive. They don’t fight for attention with other design elements and are relatively neutral in appearance. Plantation shutters can fuse easily with contemporary, Hamptons, classic or shabby chic designs. They also remove the need to update your window furnishings continually. A plantation shutter doesn’t need constant re-modelling or re-styling, saving you time and money during renovations, room updates, or seasonal interior design changes.

Installation flexibility

Plantation shutters are versatile. They’re not just for the inside of your windows, but can be installed outdoors as well. They can be custom-fit to suit all kinds of profiles such as arches, bay windows and irregular windows.


With many other types of blinds and curtains, you have very little control over how much can be seen through the window. The adjustable louvres in plantation shutters allow you to adjust the angle and see out, while making it difficult for people to see in.

Allergy friendly

Because the shutters are made from a smooth material, they don’t trap dust, and other allergens like fabric window dressings do. This makes them easy to clean and less likely to harbour known irritants.

Perfect Blinds was founded in 1958 by Bernard and Serena Weinstein as a small, local window furnishing and blinds shop in Melbourne’s inner-city suburb of Balaclava. Through their blinds shop, the couple initially manufactured 50mm aluminium Venetian blinds, which were highly fashionable at the time, and supplied them to the local Melbourne community.
