Are Plantation Shutters just too expensive for you?
They certainly look impressive and are very trendy to have in your house but Plantation Shutters can be a bit pricey for some.
Well, there is an alternative… They are just as effective in their look.. Versatile and lighter on the pocket too.
The Vision Blind could be your answer.
With their contemporary and stylish look the Vision blinds are an innovative new window blind that consists of two layers of translucent and opaque horizontal striped fabric which allows you to control light as and how you require it.
Unlike Plantation Shutters, Vision blinds do not take up any of your window when open. The Vision blind retracts back up into the cassette allowing full light to enter your window when required. They can also be manually operated or motorised. Plantation Shutters tend to be heavy, which doesn’t suit all, whereas the Vision blind is light in weight and has a more gentle appearance.
The range of colour’s which the Vision blind come in can give the effect of shutters due to their solid stripe, especially from the outside. At Penumbra we manufacture and install Vision blinds, so cutting out the ‘middle man’, hence cutting down the costs.
The choice is yours, but it’s always good to see what else is similar in style.
