Plantation shutters are some of the most efficient and practical window coverings available. Rotating the wide lovers of a plantation shutter allow for a large amount of light an visibility through the louvers. Plantation shutters hinge to the side of the window opening and can swing to either side. Most people find that once the plantation shutters are installed, the shutters remain in position and the louvers are rotated to allow light to penetrate the room. The physical shutters are only opened to open or clean the window.
Quality plantation shutters are built to endure ongoing natural abuse. Sunlight, condensation, and temperature changes eventually destroy most other window treatments. In fact, plantation shutters will actually insulate the home.
