Plantation shutters aren’t just for sprawling southern homes; they work well in all types of homes because they are both functional and beautiful. Blinds 360 offers several types of shutters from four different quality manufacturers.

Shutters can be opened completely, closed with the louvers open, or closed completely, providing several light control and privacy options. Louvers can also be tilted up or down to direct the sunlight away from certain parts of the room without shutting it out completely. Custom shutters can be mounted from each side of your window, so two panels meet in the middle, or multiple panels can be hinged together. They easily cover rectangular or arched windows and work well on French doors or as closet doors. Our shutters are also available in four different louver widths: 2 ½”, 3 ½”, 4 ½”, and 1 ¼”. The smallest width is incredibly popular with Brownstone and Colonial style homes in our community.


Composite shutters are available from Graber, Lafayette, and Hunter Douglas. Combining the look of real wood with the durability of modern materials makes these shutters ideal for rooms where wood window treatments may not withstand the heat or humidity, such as a bathroom or sunroom. Most companies guarantee this type of shutter will not fade or peel, even in harsh conditions, and they are available painted or stained.

Nothing beats the beauty of real wood shutters, especially when they are stained to match or complement the other wood accents in your home. In addition to the companies listed above, we also carry hardwood shutters from Norman, who uses wood from sustainable sources.

Available from Hunter Douglas, Palm Beach Polysatin shutters are the true workhorse of plantation shutters. Not only are they guaranteed not to chip, peel, crack, or discolor, they also have a metal rod construction that enables them to hold up under hard use.


Most plantation shutters come standard with a center tilt bar that is used to open and close the louvers. If you prefer not to see the tilt bar, Hunter Douglas offers TruView rear tilt shutters that have the tilt bar mounted on the back of the shutter to the side, so it is hidden. If you don’t want a tilt bar at all, Hunter Douglas and Norman both offer shutters that are gear-driven – simply tilt one louver and the rest will follow.
