Plantation shutters are a low-cost solution to dramatically improve the beauty and value of your property. Plantation shutters, unlike the more ordinary shutters that most people are familiar with, are installed on the inside of the window and are completely functional.The design of traditional plantation shutters is quite straightforward. They are usually made up of two vertical panels. Plantation shutters with more than two panels are sometimes encountered, rather than employing a higher number of panels for a more distinct design.

The ‘rails’ are the horizontal slats that go across the top and bottom of the shutter. One or more horizontal rails may be present in the centre of some plantation shutters, dividing the plantation shutter into separate tiers. Vertical’s tiles’ run down the sides of the shutter.
When the window sash is opened, the louvres are the parallel slats found between the stiles that may be slanted and adjusted to allow in more or less light as well as air flow. Louvers are the most adjustable aspect of these shutters, as they may be produced in a variety of sizes and shapes.
The louvres can be made in a variety of sizes, giving you more possibilities. When opening the louvre, keep in mind that the broader the louvre, the lighter and air will be allowed into the space. Plantation shutters with broader louvres also look better on larger windows in terms of aesthetic. This is true for larger rooms as well. The device that controls the louvre movement is known as the ’tilt rod.’ These are available in a variety of styles as well. Some of these tilt rods are built inside the shutter, making the rod invisible. The term “hidden tilt rods” is a good one to use.
Plantation shutters are made from a variety of materials. Plantation shutters made of vinyl and PVC are becoming increasingly popular, but they lack the elegance and flair of real wood shutters. Wooden plantation shutters can be fashioned out of a variety of materials, including pine, cherry, mahogany, and walnut. The quality of construction, including the cut, sanding, and finishing of the product, is second only to the type of wood used.
