Plantation shutters can be used for light control or to enhance privacy while still allowing for natural ventilation. With the newest advancements in construction, performance, and materials, there’s a plantation shutter for every room or interior design style. Create comfortable and welcoming interiors by investing in your home with new shutters from The Window Design Studio.
The most common style of interior shutter is the plantation shutter with panels of horizontal louvers that tilt in unison. With plantation shutters, the basic design and louvered movements will remain consistent across the brands; However, there are an incredible number of individual design elements that are easily customizable so interior shutters can harmonize with personal tastes and household décor seamlessly. Color, louver size, operating systems, and shapes can all be tailored on plantation shutters whether it’s wood shutters, faux wood shutters, or vinyl shutters.
When choosing new shutters there are two major considerations that will affect the day-to-day use of your shutters: the style of the shutter and the way it operates. Customization options like color and louver size affect the style while choices for the operating system affect the daily performance. When choosing an operating system for your new plantation shutters, consider the placement of the window and how easy or hard it is to reach; consider the window’s direction whether it faces north, south, east or west; and consider your personal lifestyle and daily needs in the room where the window is located.
In addition to their classic good looks, shutters have long been appreciated for their ability to fit a variety of traditional and specialty shaped windows. Modern plantation shutters can be customized to unique window shapes and professionally installed for a precise fit. Shapes and styles available include arches, angled top panels, bay windows, cut-outs, café style shutters, corner windows, hexagons, octagons, sunburst arches, French doors, patio doors, and sliding glass doors.
