When people look for new window treatments, it’s no coincidence that they often choose custom plantation shutters. These beautiful treatments can turn any set of windows into an attractive centerpiece for your home. They also offer a uniquely timeless look, ideal for homeowners looking to switch things up without worrying about them looking dated in a few years. Taking cues from seasonal trends can be great for inspiration, but you deserve a look that feels fresh for years to come.

Thankfully, Louver Shop plantation shutters are designed to last. Not only are they built with the best materials, but they’ll outlast any trend. If you’re still unconvinced, consider scheduling a free, in-home or virtual consultation. With the help of a design expert, you can explore possible options to find out what suits you best. In the meantime, here are just a few of the benefits custom plantation shutters can offer.

What Are the Benefits of Plantation Shutters?

Shutters offer a mix of privacy and natural light: as with most window treatments, the levels of privacy and natural light often take priority. Plantation shutters are designed with easily adjustable louvers for easy and fine-tuned control over your window treatments.

Models with composite materials resist moisture and sun damage: Many custom Louver Shop plantation shutters are made with sturdy, long-lasting composite materials. You can capture the core beauty of shutters while keeping moisture and sun damage at bay.

Plantation Shutters complement a wide range of décor and architecture: whether you’re a fan of stark minimalism or a lavish, old-world look, plantation shutters can easily suit your unique sense of style.

One of the best advantages of plantation shutters is their versatility. By customizing things like the details, louver size and color, you can create a finished look that fits snugly into any style you want.

Hide or Display the Tilt Rod Depending on Your Preference

The tilt rod provides manual control for adjusting the plantation shutters’ louvers. For people who prefer truly traditional shutters, leaving the tilt rod in view is an easy decision. This extra detail adds a sense of rich coziness, the kind you’d find in cottages and chateaus alike. But with the ability to hide the tilt rod, Louver Shop plantation shutters can suit more contemporary looks as well. Don’t worry, because models with hidden tilt rods are still easy to adjust and maintain.

For example, Louver Shop Signature Shutters come with detailed tilt rods and beveled louvers for indulgent decoration sure to draw the eye. And because these shutters are made with durable hardwoods like basswood or poplar, they’ll stay that way for a very long time.

Customize the Louver Size to Suit Nearby Décor

Altering the louver sizes can be an easy way to match the style of your plantation shutters with the rest of the room. While small louvers are more traditional, larger louvers are easy to clean and complement nearby furniture or architectural details. These broad louvers are great for drawing in natural light without sacrificing a sense of privacy.

Some homeowners worry that larger louvers mean more obvious damage or fading. That isn’t a problem with our resilient Louverwood™ Shutters. Designed with some of the strongest composite materials available, these shutters won’t expand, shrink, crack or peel. You’ll be able to marvel at their lasting, maintenance-free beauty for years to come.

Find the Perfect Color for Complementary Beauty

The wrong color can turn even the finest décor in your home into an eyesore. Window treatments like plantation shutters are no different, but it’s a much easier problem to solve. Louver Shop plantation shutters can be customized with a nearly endless array of pain and stain colors, ensuring your shutters always offer complementary colors.

For unrivaled versatility, you can’t get much better than our Heritage Shutters. Not only are they available in an enormous range of standard and custom colors, but they’re also water-based and nontoxic. Take all the time you need to find the perfect shade before adding a Diamond Coat finish for additional years of vibrant, illustrious color.
