Living in a busy area can mean you are susceptible to encountering noise pollution.  Whether it be the sound of a main road or having shops nearby. It can be a real bother to live with keeping you awake at night or disturbing you as you work from home.

Double or triple glazed windows can help to reduce the noise glass can help but for a real difference interior shutters, also known as Plantation shutters, create a sound suppressing buffer between you and the outside world.

Being custom made to fit your windows, the framework of a plantation shutter acts like a seal to stop the seepage of noise into your home. However, when the noise levels lower and weather permits the shutters can of course be opened. There are some variables that will affect how much noise gets through such as the width of the slats and the density of the wood used to create the wooden shutters.

If you are indeed thinking about improving your home with some shutters to block out the noise pollution from outside, Plantation shutters offer you more flexibility than a Café or Hollywood style shutter.

We hope that this has given you some insight into how wooden shutters can reduce the amount of external noise that gets into your home.
