So, why don’t more hotels embrace plantation shutters over the time honored fabric drapery? The paradigm seems to be stuck in total light control. Because, while plantation shutters are very room darkening - they do have slight light leakage. So, the hotel chains have gone to the “least common denominator” for guest accommodation.
However, while the big operations stick with the standard big, heavy, dusty, dark drapes, the smaller chains and niche boutique operations can create a “stay experience” that is desired by customers who want a night or two immersed in an ambiance, feel and décor unique to a particular hotel. Additionally, social media and a new generation of experience seekers will drive this phenomena.
This is where plantation shutters come to the fore. Plantation shutters offer the hotel operator with vision - a fire retardant, anti-bacterial, green-friendly poly shutter with a privacy guard option.
Personally, I would be willing to spend a few dollars more to “experience” an ambiance on my vacation that is different from the standard model. A hotel with plantation shutters and the room décor to match would be of great interest. Why? Because, plantation shutters are phenomenally beautiful.
