It’s hard to ignore the beauty that plantation shutters can bring to your home. Their clean lines, view-through, and elegance complement a wide range of decor styles, so whether you love traditional charm or are in vogue with contemporary decor, they’re sure to look stunning. With customizable options and innovative features, they can be crafted to create the perfect look and function for your unique spaces. If you’re thinking of upgrading your window coverings, plantation shutters will certainly impress. We have three different collections of shutters to fit your needs and style, and they are explained in this helpful guide. As for the customizable details, here’s a look at the most important features that plantation shutters have to offer you and your home.
Customizing the style details of your plantation shutters really sets your home apart. With so many paints, stains, and woodgrains to choose from, you can fashion a distinct look you’ll love. You can also customize them for speciality window shapes, like arches or angles, and opt for cutouts to fit around obstructions, such as door handles, window cranks, or window air conditioners. Your home will boast a high-end, sophisticated look that’ll have all your friends and neighbors talking!
All windows are not created equal, but that’s not a problem with plantation shutters. Being able to customize the operating features for the shutters on your windows and doors ensures that you can adjust them easily while maintaining a coordinated design. You can choose from three operating systems to meet your home’s individual needs: hinged panel, Bi-Fold Track, and Bypass Track. The ability to have the same shutters on different operating systems gives you optimum function without compromising style. Plus, all of the systems were designed with child-safety in mind.
With plantation shutters, you have two tilt options: front tilt and rear tilt. Front tilt lends itself to the traditional look of shutters. The tilt bar runs down the center, and with rear tilt, the tilt bar is hidden behind the side of your shutters. To adjust either style, you simply move the louvers with your hand to the perfect position, and the tilt bars do the rest. Many of our customers like the rear tilt option for contemporary styling because, without the tilt bar in front, it gives the shutters a sleek, clean appearance with maximum view-through.
