Benefits of Custom Plantation Shutters

Benefits of Custom Plantation Shutters for Homes in Burlingame, California (CA) like Light & Privacy Control

In this article, Rebarts Interiors – with three conveniently located showrooms in Burlingame, Los Altos, and San Carlos, California (CA) – is here to tell you about the benefits of custom plantation shutters.

If you’re looking for new window treatments for your home, plantation shutters might be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Their simple sophistication, unparalleled light, and privacy control, not to mention infinite options for customization, are just a few of the many benefits you can expect from plantation shutters.


Plantation shutters are known for their simple and sophisticated look. This fresh, uncluttered look translates into a stunning window treatment, especially when coordinated to match existing woodwork, flooring and other elements of your existing decor. Heritance® Hardwood Shutters from Hunter Douglas can be stained or painted to any color and showcase the rich look of natural hardwood like no other window treatment.

Superior Light & Privacy Control

No other window covering offers as much control over the amount of light entering your home and varying levels of privacy the way custom plantation shutters do. Harsh sunlight can make some rooms in your home too hot and unpleasant during certain parts of the day. Plantation shutters block out the light when louvers are in the closed position and allow you to adjust and let in just the right amount of light, section by section, instead of opening or closing the entire window treatment. In the same way that plantation shutters offer superior light control, they are great for maintaining your privacy too. You can open the top sections of your plantation shutters allowing sunlight in while keeping the bottom section closed to block out prying eyes.


As we mentioned earlier, plantation shutters are very easy to customize. They can be painted or stained to virtually any color to coordinate with existing decor. Specialty shapes for unique windows are not a problem either.

Easy to Operate & Safe for All Members of Your Family

Plantation shutters are simple and easy to operate. Households with small children and pets understand the worry that can be associated with window treatments that have dangling cords.  Plantation shutters have no cords and are safe for every member of your household. Plantation shutters are operated with just a simple crossbar on each section of louvers or you can simply ad-just the louvers themselves.

Increase Home Value

Most potential homebuyers will be drawn to the clean look that custom plantation shutters give a home. The IRS considers the installation of plantation shutters a capital improvement on your home and this could spell tax savings when the time comes to sell your home.
