Which Is Better, Plantation Shutters or Blinds?
It’s the spookiest day of the year! But keep the scares outside your home, not inside. If your curtains or blinds are scary-outdated or dull, it may be time to replace them. The right window coverings can make all the difference.
You have a lot of options, and you’ve probably heard of both blinds and plantation shutters. What is the difference? Which is better? Keep reading to learn more!
Window blinds feature adjustable louvers to control the light and privacy in a room. They are available in different materials, colors, styles and sizes. We install 2-inch faux wood blinds from A Better Blind, which are 100% UV and anti-static controlled.
Similar to blinds, plantation shutters function the same way and come in a variety of materials, colors, styles and sizes. Plantation shutters have larger, wider louvers than traditional shutters and tend to be a little thicker than blinds. We install white and ivory faux wood shutters—they are moisture-resistant, 100% recyclable and available in 2 ½, 3 ½ and 4 ½ louver sizes.
Shutters vs. Blinds
Which one is right for your home? A Better Blind’s plantation shutters are green assured and 100% recyclable—so if you prefer a product more environmentally friendly, these may be the ones to go with. Other than that, the two window coverings are very similar! The faux wood blinds and shutters we install are both:
- Moisture-resistant and work well in areas with higher humidity levels, such as bathrooms and kitchens
- Durable and easy to clean
- An economical alternative to real wood
