Plantation shutters use different styles to give you both light and privacy. Plantation shutters are basically known by their wide extended louvers. A lot of times people mistake plantation shutters for blinds, thinking they are the same. Shutter panels are made from solid wood tops and bottom rails, side stiles, louvers, and a vertical tilt bars to give them a style of their own.
We make plantation shutters from solid lengths of real wood. It’s the type of wood that is known across the industry as the best for building home or office plantation shutters. The corner joints are squeeze in between the stile and rail and are glued and doweled for more strength. The louvers are tensioned with split nylon pins that give an even tension for precise positioning.
Plantation shutters and blinds are close in arrangement, using horizontal members that rotate to deviate light and strength. Blind planks are thin and goes the full size of the window covering. Three inch plantation louvers are oval in shape and are placed on 2-1/2 centers between the side stiles. Stock shutters are sold unfinished and ready to prime and paint or stain after you get them.
