What Are the Benefits of Plantation Shutters?

Shutters offer a mix of privacy and natural light: As with most window treatments, the levels of privacy and natural light often take priority. Plantation shutters are manufactured with easily adjustable louvers for fast and fine-tuned control over your window treatments.

Models with composite materials resist moisture and sun damage: Many custom Louver Shop of Richmond plantation shutters are made with sturdy, long-lasting composite materials. You can ensure the core beauty of shutters while keeping moisture and sun damage outside where it belongs.

Plantation Shutters fit within a wide range of décor and architecture: Whether you’re a fan of stark minimalism or a lavish, old-world look, plantation shutters can easily suit your personal sense of style.

One of the best advantages of plantation shutters is their versatility. By customizing things including the details, louver size and color, you can combine them into a finished look that fits snugly into any style you want.

Hide or Display the Tilt Rod According to Your Preference

The tilt rod provides manual control for tilting the plantation shutters’ louvers. For people who want truly traditional shutters, leaving the tilt rod in view is an easy choice to make. This functional detail adds a sense of rich coziness, the kind you’d find in cottages and chateaus alike. But with the option to hide the tilt rod, Louver Shop of Richmond plantation shutters can work with more contemporary looks as well. Don’t worry, because models with hidden tilt rods are still easy to adjust and maintain.

For example, Louver Shop of Richmond Signature Shutters come with detailed tilt rods and beveled louvers for stunning decoration sure to draw the eye. And because these shutters are manufactured with durable hardwoods like basswood or poplar, they’ll remain that way for a very long time.

Customize the Louver Size to Suit Nearby Décor

Switching up the louver sizes can be an easy way to match the style of your plantation shutters with the rest of the room. While smaller louvers are more traditional, broad louvers are easy to clean and complement nearby furniture or architectural details. These louvers are helpful for drawing in natural light without losing out on a sense of privacy.

Some homeowners worry that larger louvers mean more obvious damage or fading. That isn’t a problem with our resilient Louverwood® Shutters. Designed with some of the strongest composite materials in the industry, these shutters won’t expand, shrink, crack or fade. You’ll be able to marvel at their lasting, maintenance-free beauty for years and years.
