One window treatment that’s become increasingly popular over the years are interior window shutters, often called “plantation shutters.” Unlike the typical shutters, which are fastened on the exterior of the home and act much like outdoor blinds, plantation shutters are installed inside the home. Let’s learn more about it.
TYPES OF PLANTATION SHUTTERS
These interior shutters give any home an elegant look, no matter what they’re made of.
These are typically your least expensive option for interior window shutters, and may come with PVC or aluminum supports for added stability. Vinyl shutters can be hollow, solid, or vinyl-clad wood. Because vinyl is water-resistant, vinyl shutters are good in humid climates.
Also referred to as “engineered wood or faux wood” shutters, these window coverings are made by wrapping medium-density fiberboard in a vinyl or PVC coating. Composite shutters should be considered when you want the look and feel of wooden shutters without the elevated prices.
These are the ultimate in plantation shutters, offering high strength-to-weight ratios and endless customization options. If you’re really looking for top of the line interior shutters, consider basswood which is considered the gold-standard in the window treatment industry.
