Plantation shutters have been around for decades and are a classic display of craftsmanship that many people have in their homes. Although they have been around for a while, they are far from going out of style any time soon and are more often seen as a sign of timeless elegance and sophistication. Shutters are a wooden window treatment which features a custom-built appearance that sits flush against your windows, blending seamlessly in with fixtures like moldings and cabinetry. They can be a great way to give your home an upscale, holistic feel while achieving light control, privacy, and even energy efficiency. At WTI, we’re loving plantation shutters right now, which is why we’re taking the time to share a few of our favorite options and what they can bring to your home. If you’re on the market for new window treatments, you’ll want to check out this list.
If you’re a fan of the classics, you will appreciate the simple, natural beauty of Heritance® Hardwood Shutters from Hunter Douglas.
