Plantation Shutters In Bonita Home


One of the great things about living in Bonita Springs is that we get to enjoy the sun shining year-round. But it doesn’t come without complications. In this post, I’d like to share 5 Reasons You Need Plantation Shutters In Your Bonita Springs Home.

5 Reasons You Need Shutters:

  1. Plantation shutters are custom to fit the interior design of your home.
  2. Shutters improve your home’s curb appeal.
  3. Shutters block out the heat and UV rays from the sun. 
  4. Shutters are a low-maintenance product. 
  5. Even the most oddly shaped windows can have shutters. 

Even tho we love the heat and the light it provides us daily, it is not always a convenience to the inside of our homes. This is one of the reasons why window treatments are designed differently in Bonita Springs than it is up north. Living in Southwest Florida we rarely have to worry about insulating from the cold winters, but rather protect from UV rays and keep the air conditioning inside.

SunCoast Blinds is a local, full-service window treatment company located in Bonita Springs, FL. We have focused on providing only the best solutions and quality, custom products to our clients since 1992. With 30 years of experience, we have learned what products to use (and not to use) in our Southwest Florida homes. One product that we love and that has been consistent throughout the years is our custom plantation shutters.


Plantation Shutters is custom to fit the design of your Florida home

Plantation shutters can be designed and altered in several different ways. From the choice of material to colors, louver size, tilt options, frame options, and panel configurations. This allows the shutter to be the perfect fit in a contemporary home as well as in a home with a traditional design. When we design shutters together with our clients it’s a priority to us that the shutters feel organic to the property. Properly designed shutters feel like a natural part of the home instead of a later added-on feature.



Shutters will improve the curb appeal

Most of us are living within a short distance of our neighbors and most likely in a gated community. With this in mind, we do value the privacy of the inside of our homes. Shutters will allow you to control your privacy while also improving the curb appeal of your home. Often the window treatments in a home don’t get our attention until we drive by homes with broken blinds or drapes hanging in the windows. This is when it gets obvious to us what a difference it makes. Plantation shutters are also proven to sell homes faster.


Interior shutters block out the sun

Plantation shutters are a great way to block out the sun, especially if you decide to go with larger louvers. Unless you’re a very sensitive person to light, plantation shutters will be good enough for a bedroom. Even tho the louvers will keep the room dark, there will be a smaller light gap between each louver to let in a small stream of light. If you want to go for complete room darkening, you need to invest in blackout shades.

Shutters are also very efficient in keeping out the heat and create a natural barrier stopping the heat from leaking into the room.


Poly-resin shutters are a low-maintenance product for Southwest Florida windows

One of the best parts about getting customized, quality plantation shutters is that you won’t have to worry about your window treatments again. Shutters are a beautiful piece of art for your window and don’t require any additional product to make it feel fit and finished. They are low maintenance in the form of dusting once in a while. SunCoast Blinds shutters also come with a 25-year warranty. Our poly-resin shutters are guaranteed to never fade in color or lose their shape.


Wood shutters are the solution for your odd-shaped Florida windows

Wood shutters are the solution for any window that has curved frames or requires a customized color or stain. All our wood shutters are handmade in Fort Myers with North American hardwood.  This allows us to protect any window in your home in the most decorative way possible.
