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.
