What Are Plantation Shutters?

These popular and versatile window treatment options are made of wide louvers or slats mounted within a frame that allows you to control the amount of light that enters a room. These beautiful, long-lasting, and versatile shades add instant value and style to your South Florida home. Prestige Blinds allows you to choose your frame, color, and louver style to ensure a perfect fit for your windows.

Choosing The Plantation Shutters That Best Fit Your Needs

Plantation shutters come in a variety of styles including traditional, hidden tilt, cafe, bi-fold, and specialty options. The experts at Prestige Blinds will work closely with you from consultation and browsing to final installation. Some things you should keep in mind while purchasing your plantation shutters include:

Window Size And Shape

Not only does a well-fitting plantation shutter create a more seamless design, but it also greatly impairs its effectiveness. Our shutter selections are available in a wide array of sizes and can be custom-made to fit any window in your home. Accurately measuring the dimensions of your windows is critical to making sure the shutters will fit perfectly. Considering the size of your windows is also a crucial step, as plantation shutters are available in a variety of styles including traditional rectangular shutters, arched shutters, and even specialty shutters for unique window shapes.


As plantation shutters are available in a wide variety of different materials, it is important to consider these options before making your final decision. Some of the most popular materials for plantation shutters Prestige Blinds offers include wood, vinyl, and composite materials. As each material offers its unique benefits and drawbacks, it is important to choose the shutters that best suit your needs. For example, wooden shutters are one of the most popular options because of their timeless look. However, many clients opt for vinyl or composite shutters as they are more durable and easier to maintain.

Traditional Tilt VS. Hidden Tilt

The type of tilt you opt for affects the type of operation of the shutter. Traditional plantation shutters operate with a center tilt rod that allows you to tilt the louvers open or closed. Hidden tilt plantation shutters, on the other hand, have no center tilt rod. Instead, there is a hidden tilt mechanism within the actual shutter. Hidden tilt shutters provide a more modern look and allow for consistent slat spacing.

Benefits Of Plantation Shutters

If you’re considering a new window treatment option, plantation shutters offer several advantages. They include:


Plantation shutters add instant timeless elegance and sophistication to any room. As they are highly customizable, you can easily match them to your personal style.

Energy Efficiency

Installing plantation shutters is an effective way to cut down on energy costs as they provide excellent installation. This also means they will keep your home cooler during the warmer months.

Easy Maintenance

Unlike other window treatment options, plantation shutters are much easier to keep clean by wiping them down with a damp cloth or a soft brush.

Light Control

Having adjustable slats allows you to control exactly how much light comes into your home making it easy to set the right mood for any time of the day.


One of the best benefits of installing plantation shutters is that they give you the ultimate privacy since they can be completely shut.

Plantation Shutter Installation Process

After discussing your options, price points, and concerns with the Prestige Blinds team, your plantation shutters are ready to install! During this process, you can expect:

Measurement And Planning

Accurately measuring your windows is one of the most critical steps you can take to ensure proper installation and that they will function as intended. The measurement process also helps to create a customized plan and layout of the overall installation process.

Window Preparation

After our expert technicians take comprehensive and accurate measurements, the next step is to prepare for the final installation. Some of the most common issues we face during this process include removing existing window treatments, filling in gaps or cracks, and ensuring that the window frame surfaces are clean and smooth.


There are two different ways to mount plantation shutters. With a surface mount installation, the shutter frame attaches directly to the window trim. With a recess mount, the shutter sits inside the window recess. After your shutters are expertly installed, our team will test them to ensure that it is properly secured and easily adjustable.

Final Adjustment And Cleanup

After we finish with the installation of your new plantation shutters, our team will make any final adjustments to make sure that they fit correctly and function properly. Once we guarantee that you are happy with our work, we will do a final clean-up and complete any touch-up work.
