When you are shopping for shutters, one of the styles you’ll find in your journey is plantation shutters. But just what makes a shutter a plantation shutter? What makes them special? And how do you know if they are right for your home?
Plantation Shutters Defined
Plantation shutters are an aesthetic level up from traditional shutters. While they serve much of the same purpose and operate the same, these window treatments add some extra style. They are designed to be able to be fully opened if you choose, letting in a ton of natural air and light. Then, when closed, they are a top bet for full privacy. Where they differ from traditional shutters, though, is in the design. Traditional shutters have small, narrow horizontal louvers. Plantation ones, however, have wider louvers, making for a cleaner, more sophisticated look.
When They Work Best
Plantation shutters are great options when you want to add some design character to a room and have the ability to fully close up your windows from light, sight, and air. At The Shutter Guy, our shutters are made of natural wood or modern composites and are custom designed to your needs. People traditionally go with plantation shutters when they are looking for increased privacy and control of room lighting, as well as protection from the elements.
