4 Things To Know About Interior Plantation Shutters

Interior plantation shutters are a great way to change up the appearance of your home and they have functional applications as well.

Made of Wood

Interior plantation shutters are traditionally made out of wood. The type of wood used to create the shutters can vary, which can greatly impact cost. Certain types of wood shutters will cost more than others; generally, the higher the quality and density of the wood, the more it is going to cost you.

Come in Custom Colors

Interior plantation colors come in a wide variety of colors and styles, so you can really customize the look and appearance of your interior plantation shutters. You can even vary the look of the shutters from one room of your home to another.

You can go with a more natural look that shows off the natural wood of the shutters. You can go with a stain on the windows that shows off the wood undertones. Or you can have the plantation shutters painted so that they match the interior of your home.

Once the plantation shutters are installed, you can always repaint or stain them as the style of your home changes over time.

Price Is Based on Size & Materials

The price of your shutters is based on the size of the shutters that you need to have installed as well as the material you choose for your shutters. As mentioned above, some types of wood cost more than others.

The price can also be impacted by the design of the shutters. The more special details or features your shutters have, the more they may cost. However, you may be able to save on the overall cost of your shutters by ordering shutters in bulk for multiple rooms in your home.

Concealed Hinge Design Is Cutting Edge

Next, look for a concealed hinge design. Interior plantation shutters with a concealed hinge are designed to provide you with a sculpted edge that blends in perfectly with the window molding. A concealed hinge can help bring the class of your plantation shutters to the next level. The technology behind concealed hinge designs has different names from different manufacturers, but the idea is the same.

Used with a Wide Variety of Windows

Finally, another great thing about plantation shutters is that they can be used with a wide variety of different types of windows. They can be used with casement windows, double-hung windows, sliding windows, and picture windows.

If you are not sure if interior shutters can be used with your windows, be sure to ask a window treatment consultant. Interior shutters are very versatile and can be used with most windows in your home.

About Me

When we purchased our home, I noticed something I didn't like about the place. For starters, the entire exterior was old and needed to be updated. The other part of the problem was the fact that the windows were faded, damaged, and unsightly. I wanted to make them look better, so I started talking with my spouse about replacing them. We were able to scrape together enough money to get the project done, and it felt awesome to have beautiful, highly-efficient windows in our home. I wanted to start a new website that centered around installing great windows, so here you are.
