Top Trends – Plantation Shutters

It’s time to take a look at one of the most timeless traditions of the south – plantation shutters.

As always I want to remind you that while I’m always happy to talk about the latest trends, I want to remind you that it doesn’t matter what everyone else likes. It’s all about what makes you feel most at home.

Plantation Shutters

Like monograms and sweet tea, shutters never go out of style in the south. When I think of plantation shutters, I have a vision of large trees covered in Spanish moss framing a southern plantation in the 1800s. Interior plantation shutters provide assurance, confidence, security, and elegance to a home. They are a timeless classic.

They’ve stayed so popular because as a window treatment style, they offer a traditional look with an elegant and clean appearance on both the interior and exterior of any type of home. From traditional to transitional, country to contemporary, modern and even Asian interior designs welcome plantation shutters. They provide texture that enhances the interior whether they expose variegated wood grain through a stained finish or a satin smooth paint finish.

Various louver sizes, hidden tilts, tilt bars, different frames, hanging and control options are all ways you can customize these shutters to your ideal home. From over-sized windows to French and sliding doors, any odd shaped windows can be custom fit. Quality shutters retain a large portion of their value over time with an average lifespan of over 35 years, and the best news is they require very little maintenance. Just a quick dust or wipe with a damp cloth.
