There three popular types of window decor to choose from including, blinds and min-blinds, drapes, and shutters. Although they all serve the same purpose of covering the windows, they also have other additional uses, which they serve differently and set the three options apart. There are a few reasons that make the use of shutters, particularly plantation shutters, better than the other two options.

They have a wide range of materials to choose from

To make plantation shutters, one can use a wide range of material from wood, MDF, vinyl, to mention but a few. The wide range of materials helps the user to select the most suitable factoring in different considerations such as security and the design of the building. For instance, if a building is made from, or is heavily decorated using natural wood, then it is paramount that this feel is extended to the windows and a choice of shutters made from wood with natural wood stains can give the house a perfect finishing.
