Benefits of Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters provide great curb appeal—they’re stylish and classy, and they create a uniform look in the window. Plus, they offer a good deal of flexibility—you can get great visibility and light control just by slightly adjusting the louver angle. And to boot, it is difficult to see into or out of the room when louvers are tilted, so privacy will not be an issue.

Louver Sizes

Shutter louvers from Hunter Douglas come in 2-1/2″, 3-1/2″, or 4-1/2″ sizes. Depending on the style, view, or architectural feature you’re looking for, louver size is often a personal preference. When selecting the right louver size for you, consider the design style of your home, outside view, and desired natural lighting. Keep in mind, smaller louver sizes may look heavy and congested in the window, where a larger louver size can add aesthetic value to a room.

  • The narrow-width 2-1/2″ louver is typically chosen for a more traditional look in windows that are three feet high or less. However, you are not restricted to this size just because you have a smaller window
  • The 3-1/2″ larger-size louver is the most requested of all sizes. Looking through this size louver provides a dramatic difference in what you see and how much natural light flows into the room
  • When you look through the large 4-1/2″ louver size, your eye is immediately drawn to the outside view. It provides the fewest number of louvers for any given window and is popular for taller windows and rooms with oversized ceiling heights. If you enjoy your outside view, this is the louver size for you
