Although they’re a popular option for modern homes, shutters date back to ancient Greece, originally made of marble and fixed in place. Over time, the concept became widespread, and timber replaced marble in shutters used across the Mediterranean.
Due to their enduring style, practicality and popularity, plantation shutters have never really gone out of style. In fact, there are more choices available today than at any time in the past. Because of their clean lines and elegant simplicity, plantation shutters possess a versatile stylishness that can be adapted to a range of different home design and interior decorating styles.
Want to know more about the functional benefits of plantation shutters? Check out our list here.
To help you navigate these choices and make the best possible decision for your next renovation, home building or interior design project, we’ve put together an expert guide on how to style plantation shutters in your home.
Plantation shutters are a great choice if you want a classic home. It’s a perfect match if you own a historical home or a grand old mansion! Opt for off white or crisp white plantation shutters in traditional materials to go with a simple colour palette for an elegant, timeless feel.
Clean lines and elegant simplicity define the modern minimalist look. For a universal style that won’t go out of fashion as trends change, embrace white space and don’t make your plantation shutters an obvious focal point. Make sure you have a simple, uncluttered space and match your shutters to a neutral soothing colour palette.
Look no further than country chic for a home design that is all about comfort and southern charm. To compliment your rustic interior decor, choose plantation shutters made with natural materials in traditional wood stained colours.
Choosing a plantation shutter material
While timber is the traditional choice for plantation shutters, as we mentioned earlier, aluminium and PVC plantation shutters are also widely available today. While timber shutters provide natural insulation, both PVC and aluminium plantation shutters can be used to prevent heat from entering a room.
In addition to this, each material also has different advantages in different circumstances:
- Timber has a warm and natural look that is preferred by many people, especially when used in an interior setting.
- PVC plantation shutters are often a cheaper - but no less aesthetically pleasing - option and also require less maintenance.
- Aluminium shutters are a good choice for home interiors and exteriors. In addition to being durable and easy to clean, some brands are also designed to provide greater home security.
