Which Is Better, Plantation Shutters or Blinds?
Have you recently installed beautiful new windows? Tired of looking at plain windows or outdated curtains? Whatever the situation, the right coverings can make a significant impact! But you have several different options—so which one should you choose?
Curtains and shades aside, two of the most popular options are blinds and plantation shutters. What is the difference between them and which one is better?
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
