The history of plantation shutters is traced to fifteenth-century Greece. Originally made of marble, the shutters provided light control, security, and weather protection. The style later became popular in Southern plantation homes, earning the shutter style its iconic name.
Today, plantation shutters are primarily made of wood and provide a sturdy, aesthetically pleasing look that works on many home types. At Plantation Shutters Plus, our plantation shutters are all custom designed to fit your windows and color preference.
If plantation shutters are not your style, there are a variety of modern window coverings that can provide privacy and light filtration, helping protect your family and your belongings.
- Window blinds: Available in wood or faux wood, today’s window blinds offer a similar look to plantation shutters but may be more cost effective. Window blinds also allow you to completely raise the blinds out of view if desired (or if beneficial with active children or pets).
- Window shades: Using a single piece of material instead of slats, window shades provide ample opportunity to make a statement. Shade types include solar, roman, layered, pleated, natural, roller shades and sliding panel. For extremely high or tall windows or simply to provide convenience, most shade styles can be motorized and controlled via remote.
