Are Plantation Shutters Right For You?

One of my favorite choices for window treatments is the plantation shutter. They are versatile, less expensive than custom draperies, and can increase the value of your home. Today’s plantation shutters come in many different styles and louver sizes. The most popular louver size is 3 1/2 inch, but they also come in 2 1/2 inch and 4 1/2 inch. The more traditional 3 1/2 inch is a great choice for average size rooms with normal ceiling heights. If you have huge rooms with soaring ceilings, the 4 1/2 inch louver may be a better fit. When shopping for plantation shutters, there are important features to look for. Make sure you choose a custom shutter company like 1 Call Interior Services that will measure your window exactly and build your shutters to fit. Another great feature is a divider rail. They allow for closure of the bottom louvers for privacy while the top louvers can be left opened for a view and light. When shutters are are built specifically for your windows, you will have lots of choices regarding how they are designed. How your shutters are designed will depend on your needs/wants and the style of your windows. Plantation shutters can be custom built to fit any shape or size window. If you want to soften the look of your shutters in some rooms, such as bedrooms, feel free to add drapes or a valance on top of your shutters. They’ll give you all the sun control and privacy you need.To arrange a free in-home estimate you can call/text us at (352) 238-1678 or email us at
