Plantation shutters are consistently one of the most popular of all interior window treatments. Nothing comes close to the architectural elegance of custom interior shutters in either stained wood or painted finishes.
This style of shutter is called the Plantation Shutter because it was first introduced in Spanish Colonial plantation homes of the south. The look is characterized by wide louvers that let in more light and air than traditional narrow shutters. The width of the louvers can vary from 2” to 3.5” to scale visually with a variety of room sizes.
East Coast Glass & Interiors stocks and installs only the best plantation shutters for discerning homeowners. They are available in a variety of woods, finishes, and custom options such as frame size, louver orientation and hardware. Our shutters are built to withstand high humidity, high temperatures, and excessive light. Options can even include unique inserts to hand carved top and bottom rails.
Plantation shutters with a horizontal dividing rail are a great choice for bathroom window treatments, as you can close the bottom louvers for privacy while keeping the top set open for a view and natural light.
Considerations when purchasing are frame style, louver size, finish, hardware, and control (opening/closing) options.
Plantation shutters are easy to live with—easy to clean, easy to use, long lasting, and far superior to fabric window treatments for privacy and longevity. They will add a decorative, functional architectural statement to your interior space and enhance the curb appeal and value of your home.
