Why Plantation Shutters Are Perfect for Homes

Why Plantation Shutters Are Perfect for Homes near Kalamazoo, Michigan (MI) like Palm Beach Polysatin
Chances are, when you bought your home, windows were a big concern for you, but how often do you think about your window treatments? Here at Design Details, we believe that window treatments are a truly underrated aspect of interior design, and can really be the detail that takes your home from being nice to being amazing. With this in mind, here are a few reasons why plantation shutters are perfect for homes near Kalamazoo, MI.

Getting to Know Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are one of the most striking window coverings you can choose for your home, and they manage to be both striking and timeless. Typically constructed from hard materials—such as wood, vinyl, or metal—shutters are made by combining a number of slats that open and close according to the degree of light control that you need. This operation could not be simpler: simply manipulate the louver affixed to the front of your shutters, or manipulate the individual slats themselves, and you can adjust to your desired degree of light control and privacy.

Customizing Them to Suit Your Needs​​​

One reason why we are so proud to be your Hunter Douglas dealer is Hunter Douglas’s commitment to making sure each customer receives the product that is exactly right for them. Because of this, as with their other offerings, Hunter Douglas’s plantation shutters have a wide variety of ways to customize them for your home. If you love timeless, traditional design, then consider choosing authentic hardwood shutters for your home. However, if you love the beauty of real wood but worry about maintenance, Hunter Douglas also offers shutters made from a hybrid material that takes the appearance of real wood, and combines it with the durability of synthetic materials.

Palm Beach™ Shutters

Hunter Douglas also offers another innovative shutter: the Palm Beach™ collection. These shutters are constructed from Hunter Douglas’s proprietary Polysatin™ compound, which is specifically designed to withstand strong environmental damage, such as humidity, UV radiation, and more. Guaranteed to never fade, warp, or bow over time, Palm Beach™ shutters are built to last. And, to make them even more appealing, Palm Beach™ shutters can also be upgraded with Hunter Douglas’s PowerView® motorization system, so that your shutters will be the most convenient piece of décor in your home.
