Plantation shutters Plantation shutters are becoming extremely common with those pursuing restoration, refurbishment or simply refurbishment of their homes. A futuristic window cover, which not only looks beautiful but is practically maintenance-free, meets the consumer demand for tidy, straight lines and dramatic designs.
Planting shutters may be constructed from a wide array of materials but are more generally produced from hardwoods such as Cedar and Basswood. Such materials are chosen as they are especially hard to wear and whether painted (Basswood), or left natural (Cedar), they look fantastic.

There are plantation shutters available in several various types and supplied in a broad variety of measurements, forms and paint ways to fit nearly every window aperture.
Strong shutters The materials used to create solid wooden shutters may have evolved over the years, but the basic concept has remained a constant and that bears testimony to the fact that the concept was a successful one to begin with.
Hinged vertically together, each separate solid wooden panel folds in a concertina fashion back on itself and thus shifts to the sides of a window aperture to allow for optimum light. Each panel works independently of its neighbor when closed or partly closed to slowly every the amount of light permitted into the space.
Aside from esthetics, solid wood shutters often offer a sense of comfort and can help reduce fuel bills as they provide good defense against draughts. They can also go a fair way in holding light and noise emissions at bay, as they give almost 100 percent blackout when closed making them suitable for light sleepers.
Level on stage shutters Standard looks nothing short of spectacular on floor shutters. Effectively, they are two sets of shutters, one above the other. They can be opened and closed separately providing tremendous flexibility for the homeowner.
Cafe style shutters Another perfect look to decorate every house, the shutter in cafe design is a trendy window treatment that does not cost the planet. The café-style shutter is the new, on-trend version of the net curtain mounted to the lower half of a window aperture. It lets plenty of light in though the top half of the window but provides the bottom half for privacy and protection.
Full height shutters Maximum height shutters protect the length and width of a window aperture in the same way as the above described strong shutters. The distinction here is that the whole height shutter is equipped with louvers that can be opened and closed at will, precisely regulating how much light is permitted into the room. They are the simplest plantation shutter type, with their smooth lines attracting the eye and giving the home an aura of sophisticated elegance from both inside and outside.
