Plantation Shutters in Meredith, Gilford, NH
What are Plantation Shutters?
A Plantation Shutter is a type of interior shutter that is both beautiful and practical. This style of window treatment is characterized by wider louvers (slats) than traditional shutters. There is both a decorative appeal and a practical appeal with Plantation Shutters, (originally named after the shutters used on Southern plantations), because they not only have a clean and classic look, but they are very effective at keeping out the hot sun.
In the 1950’s they became popular in California and were sometimes called “California Shutters”. They can have slats up to 3″ or 4″ and are chosen for their architectural appeal. Other shutters do not rotate and remained fixed. These can contain panels whose designs include raised, flat or recessed. Some shutters can be covered with fabric, and even on occasion have stained glass inserts
