When shopping around for window coverings, certain things need to be considered. Style, practicality, and cost are all very important. But so is longevity. With the current squeeze on the cost of living, making shrewd purchases is more vital than ever. That is where plantation shutters come in. Of course, it goes without saying that they have many benefits, both aesthetically and practically. And that’s without even mentioning their longevity.

How Long Do Plantation Shutters Last?

At TSSUK, we want our customers to get the best value for their money. Therefore, we build our plantation shutters with longevity in mind. Both our solid hardwood and waterproof polyvinyl ranges come with a 3-year warranty. But with the right care and attention, there is no reason they shouldn’t last for 10, 15, or 20 years…or more! Luckily, they’re incredibly easy to clean too. A wipe down with a damp cloth followed by a rub with a dry cloth is enough to do the job. We also often get asked: How long do vinyl shutters last? Well, just as long as the hardwood.

Why Plantation Shutters?

When compared to other window dressings, there really is no contest. Shutters require much less maintenance than curtains or blinds, they’re easier to clean, they’re more durable, and they are more versatile too! Curtains and blinds are almost always orientated around a particular décor. With shutters you won’t have this problem. Because of their timeless look, shutters can blend in seamlessly with any look. So, should you decide to redecorate, you won’t have to worry about your window dressings sticking out like a sore thumb.


Long-lasting Shutter Styles

Whether you decide on Full Height, Tier-on-tier, Café Style, or Solid shutters, you will be enjoying your DIY plantation shutters for years to some. But it is always best to match your windows with their most suitable style. Full Height shutters work best with shorter windows, whereas Tier-on-tier are recommended for tall windows. For a timeless blend of light and privacy, our Café Style shutters only cover the bottom section of your windows. Lastly, one should always consider colour. We have a wide selection of stains and hues to choose from, but if you are thinking long term, you can’t go wrong with one of our white shades.
