Fauxwood Plantation Shutters Give Style Antebellum Rustic Furniture Sale

One of the most romantic periods of architecture and interior designs is referred to now as the antebellum period, which translates as 'before the war' - in this case, the American Civil War. In particular, the antebellum design refers to the old South, with elegant plantation homes appearing in the early 1800s, characterized by Greek or Classical revival touches or the grand federal style. Today, this period is much sought after by home designers and interior design professionals, and in much demand now are those companies offering faux wood plantation shutters.

It is faux wood plantation shutters that immediately give visitors the unmistakable feel of the old Southern charm, with their classical design evoking all the romanticism of the period with a modern twist. Because faux wood plantation shutters are constructed from PVC-based materials, they retain all the appearance of natural wood, with none of the old-fashioned downsides. Faux wood plantation shutters do not split, warp, or crack as their wooden equivalents have always tended to do.

No one entering the room could tell that your faux wood plantation shutters were anything but the real thing, allowing the light outside to filter across the room in a certain way that diffuses the light without restricting it.

One mustn't forget, of course, that faux wood plantation shutters are chosen not just for their appealing look and evocative style and charm but for the practical ways in which they can provide both privacy and style, with much more flexibility and durability than almost any window blind equivalent. Fully closed, faux wood plantation shutters will block out a significant proportion of light and guarantee complete privacy and peace of mind. With the slats partly open, a beautiful view is available from the inside, with a beautiful diffused light entering the room. With the window open, a breath of fresh air will circulate the room while still providing reasonable privacy.

The faux wood plantation shutters can be opened fully, or the top half or bottom half opened separately, adding to the flexibility and style you wish to have. You painted or varnished wood, especially in damp areas of places that are exposed to a significant quantity of daylight, is likely to deteriorate over time, peeling, cracking, or splitting, with the wood itself warping over time, leaving a less than perfect fit, not to mention a less than ideal appearance. Maintenance will be necessary to keep the shutters looking as good as they should at both cost and time. However, the problems are negligible with faux wood plantation shutters, with the finish resistant to cracking, splitting, or peeling, even in the harshest conditions.

Many people chose faux wood plantation shutters to enclose outdoor pools or spas. Even in the home, in bathrooms, the humidity and moisture levels are higher than average, and in these places, painted or varnished woods will last only a relatively short while before the continually expanding and contracting of the wood as it absorbs the water results in warping, twisting and breaking of the slats and frames. However, with faux wood plantation shutters, the true romance of the antebellum period can be achieved at no loss, where style and longevity is concerned. What can be more romantic than having all of the positives associated with the period type without any of the negatives that come with the wooden equivalents?

Another advantage of fitting faux wood plantation shutters to your home is that the effect and look does not merely compliment the inside of your room, helping to evoke that romantic old South look and feel. Still, from the outside, the face is immediately recognizable. The curb appeal of faux wood plantation shutters is unmistakable and will grant your home a romantic, classical look that will be noticed and admired by passers-and guests coming to visit-looking to sell your home? Then fitting these will help move your property - even before the prospective buyers have set foot inside.

Make sure that the antebellum period is continued inside with artistic and well-placed period furniture - with all the class and style of the old South; your property value will be heading north!
