Usually mounted on the outside of the frame are louvers, slats, panels, glass, any other material and many other items that can be attached to a frame at various levels. It is an important window treatment that protect the home from the elements, provides privacy and decorates the window. Many window treatments are available for these types of shutters.

Wood window shutters provide a warm and relaxing atmosphere indoors and outdoors and while cost effective, provide no insulation or draft control compared to other materials and cannot be installed if not included with a permit. When choosing wood window shutters, consider your desired style and color to help improve your interior plantation’s appearance. Consider the wood species as oak, maple, hickory, birch, poplar, pine, mahogany, maple, cherry etc. Also select the hardware that compliments your shutter such as roller hinges and door knobs to give your windows an even more professional look. For an excellent look there are pre-finished interior plantation shutters that can help improve the appearance and finish of your windows.
A good option for those who want a more custom window treatment is to add additional panels that are attached to the interior shutter. The panels can also be placed on a wall to give your exterior shutters an elegant look. Adding plantation shutters to your home can increase the value and curb appeal of your property.
