Are Plantation Shutters Good for Bedrooms? image

Plantation shutters are useful in many rooms, including bedrooms. In this article, we discuss the benefits of using plantation shutters in bedrooms, from versatility and colour choice to maximum light.


One of the biggest advantages of plantation shutters is their ability to be adjusted to provide maximum privacy and control how much sunlight enters your room. You can adjust them to let you view everything outside while also blocking sight from those trying to peek in.


Alongside privacy benefits, plantation shutters keep out the noise that can so often enter our bedrooms from outside roads. They do so through insultation: specifically, by creating a barrier between the window and the shutters. This muffles the sound whilst also regulating your bedroom temperature.

If you live near a busy road and want a goodnight’s sleep, this is useful.


Safety is especially key when it comes to those of us with children. Bedroom shutters and blinds with cords can be dangerous, and as such, plantation shutters are a safer alternative. They don’t require strings or cords to operate, removing the dangerous aspect, but they are also able to be opened by children if needed or kept locked closed if parents need it.


Having a stable temperature in your bedroom is a vital part of a goodnight’s sleep. Investing in good quality plantation shutters will save you from having to run your heater all night.

During the summer, you can also keep the shutters slightly open to allow air circulation to pass through your room. This is something difficult to achieve with curtains or other alternatives.

Material Choice

Plantation shutters come in a variety of sizes and colours, giving you greater versatility when it comes to decorating your home. For your bedroom, this is especially important – there is no reason that you should stick with a limited colour range if you wish to have your window coverings be an eye-catching aspect of your room.


Plantation shutters are naturally clean-cut and elegant, making them perfect for a variety of homes and bedroom designs.


As plantation shutters are powder coated or Thermopoly (plastic), they are easy to wipe down. This is key with bedroom shutters, where dust easily acquires.

Allergy Sufferers

Allergies are often caused by dust in general. Having plantation shutters in the bedroom decreases allergy problems, not only because they are easy to clean, but their premium materials mean that toxins won’t be released into your bedroom.
