Slat Variations In Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are made of wood or metal and have been around for many years. A plantation shutter is basically a strong and stable wooden window shade usually made up of a wooden frame with horizontal and vertical rails attached. Installing plantation shutters on your windows gives the house or office the style and ambience of plantation life but without actually having to live in a plantation. Plantation shutters are available in a wide variety of styles and colors to fit in with one’s decorating style, whether he wants a traditional plantation style or something more modern and trendy.You may want to check out plantation shutters for more.

There are several different types of Plantation shutters that one can choose from depending on the preferences and tastes of the owner. The shutter is mostly fixed to the window and attached either to the outside of the frame or through a hinge. Slats on the plantation shutters either tilt up or down in response to the changes in the weather outside. A cloth is typically used as a backing to cover the slats on the shutter in order to keep it in place. Plantation shutters which tilt up provide the outside of the shutter with adequate light while inside it’s dark and restrictive. On the other hand, tilt down shutters are placed to control the amount of light coming into the house or office.

For people who are looking for more flexibility in controlling the light control of their plantation shutters, they may decide to get slats that can swing up or down. Some manufacturers also manufacture blinds with a plantation shutter that opens and closes by itself. These slats are generally wider than usual since the shutter won’t be able to accommodate a big window unless it’s constructed differently. The most important thing to note when using slats with these dividers is to make sure that the slats are not too wide or narrow that light cannot enter through them.
