Plantation Shutter Styles

Plantation shutters come in different styles, although typically they all have the same core elements, as displayed by our typical shutter panel diagram.

Full height shutter panel

These are the most popular option and can be supplied with or without mid, or divider rails. The mid rails can be centralised or offset to match the horizontal window transoms and provides enhanced control over light and privacy.

Café style shutters

These are fitted at a position between the top and bottom of the window. Often, this is to match the horizontal window transoms and allows natural light above the shutters and privacy below.

Tier on tier shutters

These consist of two sets of shutters, fitted one above the other.

They both use the same frame, and are usually split in line with the horizontal window transoms. Each set can be operated individually giving greater flexibility on light and privacy.
