Whether it be a small window, a window with taps in the way or cupboards at either side, dressing your kitchen window can be tricky. There are plenty of options out there to choose from, ranging from blinds, curtains, or indeed plantation shutters, but you need to decide which is best for your kitchen and the look you want to achieve.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, one room that really benefits from shutters is the kitchen. Often window coverings within a kitchen can be hit with grease, condensation and water and can age very quickly through discolouring and moulding. However, using plantation shutters in the kitchen can give you a product suitable for the everyday activities of the kitchen.
Our Antigua range is more than suitable and can be wiped down very easily if needed. For areas that may face high levels of condensation, you could opt for our fully waterproof Java range. If in doubt, ask us upon measuring and designing your shutters and we will advise the most suitable product.
Plantation shutters are designed to be hinged on a frame, allowing easy access to window handles and for cleaning glass. This is very important in kitchens as windows may need to be opened to allow fresh air to enter the room during cooking.
At Horizon Shutters we will always consult with the customer to ensure they are designed to suit the customer’s needs and requirements.
Plantation shutters are extremely easy to clean and will only require a light dusting and occasionally a wipe down with a damp cloth. We do not recommend using any cleaning products which may contain harsh chemicals which could damage the shutters over time.
Unlike traditional window coverings, plantations shutters do not absorb dirt and grease and will not to be removed and professional cleaned, making them fairly maintenance free.
