Indoor Plantation Shutters have a long history of beautifying one’s home and adding lasting re-sale value to your property. The attractive plantation shutters are often the first choice of window treatment chosen by decorators and home owners alike. They are the classic window coverings and make an elegant addition to every style of interior design.
Plantation shutters can be custom-built to fit every shape and style of window and door in your home. Sliding glass doors, French-doors and traditional entry doors can all be fitted with plantation shutters. There isn’t a window made that cannot receive an indoor shutter covering and they are the perfect solution for unusual shaped windows and doors.
The choice of materials and finishes that are available will satisfy everyone’s taste and pocket-book. Shutters are available in wood and faux-wood compositions. Most wooden shutters are constructed from hardwoods, with Basswood and Poplar being the most reasonable. Some styles are made from Pine. Faux-wood shutters are man-made materials and some of the choices are polymer, or a combination of wood and plastic or wood and vinyl materials.
Prices will vary within categories, but the faux-wood varieties are usually from 20% to 30% less than those made of hardwood or specialty woods. Standard-size shutters will be less expensive than those made-to-order, but be assured that the standard sizes can be configured to fit 99% of all window and door openings. Panels range in sizes from narrow sized to fit glass side door panels to wide sizes that are hinged together to cover the biggest picture window in your house.
