The benefits of plantation shutters

Plantation shutters are sure to add a new level of style to your home, but they also offer benefits that reach far beyond their style and design.


High-quality plantation shutters are made from durable and long-lasting materials, which means that your shutters are truly an investment for your house. They won’t warp or deteriorate, so there’s no need to replace them, and their durability will save you money in the long run.


Though the construction of Plantation Shutters has evolved throughout the decades, they are still some of the most elegant and appealing window treatments out there. Plantation Shutters have a timeless appeal that won’t go out of fashion as trends change.

Because of their universal style, Plantation Shutters look great with almost any décor and will only enhance your interior space.


Here’s a benefit that your wallet will thank you for, Plantation Shutters effectively insulate your home, keeping it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This insulation can reduce air-conditioning and heating costs by up to 25%, so even when the cost of plantation shutters are slightly higher, the energy savings are worth the price tag.

Low maintenance

Plantation shutters are incredibly easy to maintain. Forget complex cleaning products and specific equipment; just grab a rag and your everyday surface spray to wipe down and clean.


Some window treatments, like Modern Plantation Shutters, are made from non-toxic and 100% fully recyclable materials. You can feel good about your new home purchase because they reduce your carbon footprint and are the safest for you and your family.


Installing Plantation Shutters might seem like a daunting process, but with Modern your shutter installation is quick and easy. Experts will come to your home to fit each individual window, ensuring that the final product functions perfectly for your home. Your shutters will then be custom assembled, and as soon as they’re ready, installation experts will come back to your home to install your brand new shutters.

You’ll only need to wait 4-8 weeks for your shutters, and you won’t have to lift a finger as your shutters are fitted and installed to perfection.


The cost of Plantation Shutters depends on a few different aspects, the first being the number of windows you’d like fitted. As the number of windows increases, so will the price. The second aspect that determines the price of your Plantation Shutters is the size of your windows. Plantation Shutters can be fitted to a huge variety of window sizes, so the price is dependent on window dimensions.

When you’re shopping around, it’s important not to get caught up in finding the cheapest cost of Plantation Shutters. If you find a price that seems too good to be true, it probably is. Quality tends to go down with the price, meaning cheap Plantation Shutters will deteriorate quickly and need replacement much sooner than high-quality products.


There are a lot of things around our homes that need constant maintenance. Pools need to be cleaned, gutters need to be cleared, and lawns need to be mowed. But Plantation Shutters are some of the easiest window treatments to maintain. Modern uses a unique, dense polymer foam, the shutters will never crack, warp, shrink, discolour, or lose tension. This means that you can forget a big maintenance bill with each passing season.

The shutters are also super simple to clean. A quick wipe down with a rag and the products you already have under your sink and your shutters will be sparkling clean once again.

Whether you’re after a timeless new look in your home, a low-maintenance solution, or huge energy savings, plantation shutters could be the perfect new addition to your home.
