Plantation shutters are semi opaque when the louvers are closed. This allows for complete privacy, and an almost dark room. A minimal amount of direct sunlight will penetrate the narrow gaps along the edges of each louver.
The louvers can be rotated partially open to block direct sunlight, but allow enough light to brighten the room. This is a great way to protect furniture and carpet from fading over time. Fully open, plantation louvers provide great visibility and maximum light.
Supreme Shutters uses high-quality basswood.

Read what customers are saying about Supreme Shutters.
The number of panels used in a window depends on the width of the window. As a rule, we suggest dividing the shutter the same way your window is divided. If your opening is divided into three vertical sections, then you would have three shutter panels.
Do not confuse indoor plantation shutters with plantation blinds. Plantation blinds have cords to connect and rotate individual louvers.
A divider rail in a shutter can be extremely useful to make two, or more, sections within a single shutter panel. This will allow for leaving the top louvers open while the bottom area closed for privacy.
Plantation shutters are one of the few window coverings that will increase the value of your home, enhancing its appearance, while offering an element of energy efficiency. Shutters are considered “real property” - blinds or shades are not.
