Plantation Shutters

We love plantation shutters! Always a classic. They look great in colors other than white. Love the gray ones above, and the dark room below- wow- drama!
They work with traditional and modern interiors.

They are a perfect solution for French Doors.And as beautiful as windows over tubs are, many times its not practical from a privacy standpoint. Shutters are a beautiful choice to maintain the lovely, but keep peeping toms out. If you're worried about humidity+wood, they also come in some really good composites that are a smart choice for bathrooms or kitchens.

They provide great light control as well because their louvers can be manipulated up or down, so they make great window treatments for bedrooms.

Best of all, shutters are a great home improvement since they can increase the value of your home. If you are interested in shutters for your home, give us a call at the Studio 937-312-9461.

I was just looking at shutters this weekend for our bathroom. It's nice to have a window by the tub - until you need to get out! These are some great examples. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Plantation Shutters are really eco friendly for homes. Many benefits of plantation shutters than the other window treatments.
