How Plantation Shutters Work
Shutters are custom fitted for doors and windows. Different from other window coverings, plantation shutters mount into a window frame, filling the frame completely. Rather than moving up and down or sliding sideways like most window blinds, plantation shutters open and close with a rod or can be opened completely like a door. If you want to let the sunlight or breeze in, but maintain your privacy, simply adjust the shutters.
What to Consider
There are a few steps to consider and our team of experts will help you make the best choice for your space. The first, and most important step, is deciding if you'd like to mount the shutters in your window frame or on the wall surface.
Inside versus outside mount
Inside mount plantation shutters fit completely inside the window or door opening. If the window is set deeply and has no obstruction (such as a handle), they can be flush to the wall. If the window is shallow or you prefer a bolder look, the shutters will be set above the surface.
Plantation Shutter Frame Width
Most of our shutters have a surrounding frame that holds the plantation shutter in place. If you’re thinking of inside mount placement, a smaller frame allows more light with the shutter slats open. If you prefer an outside mount, or if there is plenty of light, then make your selection according to the room style. Larger frames coordinate with larger sized trim and room detail.
The shutter frame is the outside edge that attaches to your window or wall and the shutter panels in turn attach to the frame. The type of frame selected depends on the function and style desired. Some frame styles double as decorative molding, others are less noticeable, while others provide extra depth to help clear window handles and other obstructions.
Plantation Shutter Options
There are several upgrade options, including cloth tapes, routeless slats, cordless operation and motorization. Cloth tapes are meant to enhance the style and soften the look of the shutter. Routeless slats take light control and privacy to the next level by providing better room darkening. Cordless offers easy operation and is an important safety consideration for homes with small children, as loose cords can be dangerous
