Different plantation shutters kits have their own qualities and advantages. Some are more ideal for damp areas where others are best used in bedrooms or living areas.
Woodlore shutters are made from a combination of timber fibres and glue and are known to be very stable. The colour of these shutters in raw state is a mid-brown colour with no grain pattern or direction however, these plantation shutters are supplied in a paint finish. The density is high which makes the shutters able to take a knock or two. The shutters are not subject to warping when kept within limitations however, it is not recommended that these shutters be used in high moisture environments.
The Linden shutters are made from a hardwood Basswood tree and come in a range of different stain and paint colours. The even, light colour of the Basswood tree makes the blinds ideal to stain. Linden shutters are made with a medium density texture and has a good resistance to being bumped. When kiln dried these blinds become resistant to bowing and warping but once again are not recommended for wet weather areas due to the UV stabalised single-pack lacquer.
This type of plantation shutter is made with a man-made product which is developed for moisture area applications. The timber core of the Woodbury shutters is encasesd in a synthetic product called Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). These shutters are ideal for areas such as the bathroom, kitchen and laundry as the moisture does not cause damange. These are moisture resistant however, are still only made for interior use.
Normandy plantation shutters are made from a wood known as Phoenixwood. These shutters come in a range of stain and paint colours. The timber used is medium density making it ideal for the making of our plantation shutters. Use of these shutters in moisture areas depends on the finish applied.
Plantation Shutters vs Curtains
When making the choice between curtains or plantation shutters for windows there are many features to take into consideration. The efficiency of curtains will depend primarily on the fabric used in the curtains which makes it difficult to compare accurately. However, we believe, other than the gentle, soft look of fabric there are really no other benefits curtains can offer than shutters cannot. Both curtains and plantation shutters have the ability to block out a great percentage of light from entering a room however, plantation shutters can be adjusted in a more even and more aesthetically pleasing way. Curtains will often attract dust and dirt and due to the material used in them, they can be very difficult to clean. Cleaning plantation shutters is really quite simple. Regular cleaning with a duster and a damp cloth is all that is required to keep them clean and doesn't take too long to perform. There is also the chance that curtains will lose their colour and will start looking old and will lose their appeal after about six ear. Plantation shutters will still look like new for years to come after your curtains have long gone.
Plantation Shutters vs Blinds
Comparing plantation shutters to blinds is a little different due to the great variety in blinds available. Some blinds are similar to curtains and others are quite similar to shutters. Some blinds are similar to shutters in the way that they open with louvres however, sometimes the strings of these louvres can get tangled or break creating extra cost to get them fixed. Blinds are usually of a lower quality and do not add value to a home like plantation shutter do. Shutters will also generally last longer than blinds when looked after.
