In times of recession it's always hard to know what to do for the best. For many people it is a worrying time, with unemployment rising, the economy showing no significant signs of improvement and low interest rates on savings. It's hard to know whether to save or spend. There are two sides to every argument of course, but when you're thinking of investing your hard earned savings in a product like plantation shutters it’s important to know you are going to benefit.
For many job insecurity means he need to hold onto their money 'just in case', however, with interest rates so low on savings it hardly seems worth leaving the money in the bank. Investing it in something that will add value to your home may for some be a more sensible option, and with the following benefits of having plantation shutters
its worth considering investing:
• Style – there is no denying the added style that a product like this brings to a room, enhancing the decorations and making a feature of the window
• Value – as they are attractive to buyers they can add value to a property for sale, as potential buyers are impressed not only by the style but also because their window coverings are good quality and ready for them to move in
• Space – as the plantation shutters are fitted in the window recess they will not protrude into the room, chosen in white or a light colour they will create a feeling of space
• Cost reducing – chosen in white or a pale colour they will match any colour or style of decorations, so no matter how often you decorate you won't need to change them
• Durable and hardwearing – because of the paint finish incorporating a UV filter the shutters
are designed to retain their colour, and as they are usually opened only to clean the windows as the louvres are used to adjust light, they are hardwearing and durable and can last for many years
• Insulation – once closed plantation shutters form a wooden barrier between your window and room, retaining heat and cutting down on drafts more effectively than a material window covering, helping to trap heat and reduce bills
• Protection for furnishings – as the louvers can be angled to keep light away from furnishings it can help prevent light damage to expensive items
For many people it's also about creating the home that they want, and enjoying the fruits of their labour by doing up their home to enjoy now rather than when at the time they are planning to sell. With interest rates low and a range of benefits like this, isn't it worth reviewing your window dressings?
