Why Plantation Shutters Are Perfect for Florida Homes

Plantation Shutters Are Perfect for Florida

Homeowners tend to associate plantation shutters with the graceful mansions of the antebellum south. However, limiting these elegant window coverings to a single region actually does them a disservice. Plantation shutters are dynamic, suiting many climates and architectural styles. In few places is this more apparent than in Florida, where homeowners have discovered many reasons why plantation shutters are perfect for their homes.

Their Style

Plantation shutters lend a touch of sophistication to ones’ décor due to their custom, built-in appearance. It would be wrong to associate this sophistication with ornate fussiness, though. Clean lines and simple patterns provide shutters with the same sort of relaxed, gracious charm that characterizes the state of Florida. Whether you want your home to exude tropical ease or old-world dignity, plantation shutters can help.

The Climate

Before the electrical current gave rise to air conditioning, shutters helped men and women living subtropical climates manage the temperature indoors. Unsurprisingly, plantation shutters can still perform the same function for modern Floridians. By adjusting the angle of the louvers, homeowners can control the amount of sunshine and direction of cross breezes in a space, making hot and humid seasons a bit more bearable.

Their Durability

Florida can experience some of the most intense weather in the United States. Bright sunshine will bleach fabrics and walls, while heavy wind can upend outdoor furniture and even toss debris through windows. Depending on the type of plantation shutter, these window treatments can provide homes, porches, and cabanas with protection by limiting sunlight, providing a wind barrier, and repelling windborne projectiles.
