What are Shutters?

Shutters, often referred to as ‘Plantation shutters’ are a window treatment made from basswood or PVC which are slatted shutters for interior (or sometimes exterior) windows. They provide stylish and solid alternatives to curtains and other traditional dressings. Shutters are available with or without an opening mechanism, without the mechanism provides an ultra clean look and the slats are still moveable up and down by hand, allowing complete control of light. Shutters are a neat looking and versatile solution to windows and can be treated in various stains and paints allowing homeowners to customise their window finishings to fit in with any style (although white is by far the most common finish).
