How white plantation shutters can completely change your living space

It is a great idea to brighten up your living space with spring in the air. Adding white shutters is a superb way to achieve this instantly. Clean and crisp, the overall aesthetic of shutters can work wonders and can make your room feel fresh and full of light.

The benefits of natural light and sunshine, as highlighted by Saint Gobain, include an increase in positive mental health and wellbeing, along with regulating the body’s internal clock. White plantation shutters are a way to bring light into your home as efficiently as possible.

Shutters are the perfect answer for giving your living space a refreshing lift. You may be asking yourself; why you should add shutters, and how can shutters change your space?

Why add shutters to your room?

  • Gives your room a lighter feel
  • Offers crisp, fresh design
  • Creates a tidy and clean look
  • Offers more light control

Why are white plantation shutters so popular?

One theory behind why white plantation shutters are so popular is that most homes have white window sills.

It is a sensible design solution to match your window sills with your shutters to avoid too many clashes in your living space.

As Forbes highlights, the colour white can also make your room appear more extensive, and open up the room more than other colour.

When used in a room, white can give the impression of:

  • A clean, fresh, airy feel
  • A tranquil, welcoming space
  • Simplicity and adaptability

The benefits of white plantation shutters

As white naturally lightens and opens up a room, it makes sense that the most popular shutter colour would help with this too.

  • Versatile

There are several reasons why white plantation shutters are a popular choice with our customers. Firstly, they are incredibly versatile. Secondly, they also create the perfect focal point to build the rest of your décor around.

  • A good starting point

White shutters are a good starting point to build a sleek modern design for a room. You can then update your soft furnishings and add some vibrant spring colours to transform it ready for the new season.

  • A good match

White shutters stand the test of time between design changes, making them a perfect choice. They are also a good match for gloss paintwork and uPVC windows that are already installed. This means no mess or fuss on your end.

  • Help with temperature control

White shutters are not only stylish; they are also a good solution as they insulate your home in the colder months, and can ventilate your living space in the hotter months.

  • Endurance

White plantation shutters are made of a high quality, sturdy material, so they pass the endurance test more so than other materials. While fabric can experience wear and tear over time, white plantation shutters are a durable and overall better option.

  • Clean

Unlike other options, shutters are an option that avoids dust from getting trapped, which can be a problem if you suffer from any allergies.

How do plantation shutters work?

  • Shutters are a type of window dressing that allows you to control the amount of light coming through your windows completely.
  • They have solid frames and louvres that can be adjusted as you see fit to let light in or block it out.
  • Shutters are operated in several ways and typically consist of hinged panels that open and close in a concertina-style.

Another bonus to white plantation shutters

If you change the décor of your room in the future, having neutral shutters can be an advantage. White shutters, or similar colours, gives you great flexibility to change your décor without any extra expense.
