Plantation shutters can complement any room. They are versatile and provide ample natural light when opened. If you’re looking to upgrade your home with brand new custom shutters, you’ve come to the right place. With new shutters, you can add to your home’s overall value without breaking the bank.
What are plantation shutters?
Plantation shutters are indoor shutter systems that are perfect for any room. Due to their bi-fold style track and middle hinges, they allow for easy access to the outdoors should you need it. If you are looking to install this type of shutter in a room that has a large window, you’ll love how much light they let in when opened. Moreover, these shutters are folded accordion-style and are ideal for rooms that require optimal ventilation because they can come with a screen yet still let in fresh air.
What is the difference between traditional window shutters and plantation style?
The difference between plantation shutters and traditional window shutters lies with the louvers. Louvers are the angled slats or flat strips that are fixed around a shutter to ensure that light and air can pass through. Without louvers, air would not be able to circulate freely into your home. In plantation style shutters the louvers are larger than 1.25 inches or 3.2 cm in width making them greater than those of their traditional counterpart. When we create this style of shutter they are made with 3-1/2” louvers to boost airflow.
