Plantation Shutters Market: Overview

Plantation shutters have been used for a long time. Need for ventilation and free air flow inside buildings has been a key concern. These shutters allow flow of fresh air, which help remove bacteria, pollutants, and moisture that pollute the indoor environment. Good ventilation systems help prevent condensation which can lead to molds, peeling of wallpapers, mildew formation, rotting of surfaces, and damage to wooden structures and supports. Ventilation and air flow help reduce indoor temperatures and health ailments such as allergies, rashes, asthma, headaches, and sinusitis.

Plantation shutters are usually window treatments which include a frame of horizontal rails and vertical stiles. The rails can be either at the bottom, top, or center of the structure. Louvers (either fixed or moveable, and horizontal or vertical), glass, fabric, solid panels, or any other item which can be easily mounted are set within this frame structure. Plantation shutters are used for various purposes such as to regulate sunlight entering the room, provide security and privacy, protect from unwanted intrusion, and amplify the beauty of the building. Nowadays homeowners are viewing them as an opportunity which can add high value to their property. Plantation shutters are becoming trend with the number of houses using them. White color plantation shutters are by far the most popular ones while light gray are at second position.
