Home Improvements You Can Do While Stuck At Home: Plantation Shutter Installation

Plantation Shutter Installation

With so much extra time spent at home during this worldwide epidemic, many people are turning to home improvement projects. Hopefully, we’ll all come out at the other end of this virus with significantly more beautiful homes. One simple improvement you can make while staying home due to social distancing is updating your window coverings. There are a few options when it comes to window coverings, but the most elegant is the plantation shutter. In fact, plantation shutter installation is one of the easiest and most elegant updates you can make to your home. If you decide to go forward with this home update, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Choose Custom

If you’re going to do a home update, you might as well do it the right way. Custom designed plantation shutters are easier to fit to your exact window shape. This is especially important for people with older homes as the windows are often shaped differently than modern homes.

The other benefit of choosing custom designed shutters while doing a plantation shutter installation is you can match the character of your home. If you have an old door or shed made from unique wood, it can be really fun have it turned into shutters in order to preserve your home’s historic character.

A Hidden Tilt-Rod

All shutters that are able to open and close must have a tilt rod, but some shutters are able to hide the tilt-rod from visibility. It’s best to go with the hidden tilt-rod for a few reasons. First, it’s a stronger and more reliable design. Because the shutter is out of sight, it is more resilient and has a longer life span.

The second reason to choose a hidden tilt-rod is that it gives you a clearer view out your windows when the shutters are open. This helps bring more natural light into your house, which is much needed if you’re spending more time indoors.
