Plantation Shutters: Style Options and Designs

The clean, classic look of Hunter Douglas plantation shutters is a great choice for any home. Custom shutters allow for a wide array of options for even the most unique window or door. Choose from wood or synthetic material that can be stained or painted to match the existing décor.

French Doors

Plantation shutters are a great way to accent french doors. One advantage to plantation shutters on french doors over blinds is that blinds tend to sway and bang against the door as it opens and can even get caught in the door. Plantation shutters stay put. They work with any type of door handle by customizing cut outs to individual door handles.

Sliding Glass doors

Installing plantation shutters as a window treatment for sliding glass doors is a great way to give a sophisticated look to a room while optimizing privacy and light. Hunter Douglas shutters come in three collections that can all be made with installation systems uniquely for patio and sliding glass doors.

Closet Doors

Plantation shutters are an interesting way to give a crisp, modern look to a bedroom. With their streamlined look, architectural interest and the ability to close the louvers tightly to block the contents of the closet from view, they are a great solution for closet doors.

Room Dividers

A cost effective and fun option for basements, attics, or home offices, plantation shutters are ideal for creating separate spaces where no walls exist. Plantation shutters can be custom made into floor to ceiling room dividers, lending a high-end, contemporary look to your home renovation project.

Materials and Finishes

Hunter Douglas uses three distinct materials for plantation shutters. Their hardwood shutters are crafted from real wood and use dovetail construction for increased durability. They come in a wide array of colors and finishes to suit any room in your home.

Hybrid shutters give the look of hardwood but the strength and durability of advanced modern day materials.

Hunter Douglas UV resistant shades are a great idea for high moisture areas like the kitchen or the bathroom. They are guaranteed to never fade, chip, warp or peel, regardless of heat or moisture exposure.

Operating Systems

Depending on exactly where your shutters are in your home, there may be a need for different ways to open or adjust them. Here are a few options offered by Hunter Douglas.

A traditional front-mounted tilt bar is the standard on plantation shutters. The centered tilt bar is used to close the louvers up or down tightly against one another. Hunter Douglas also offers a rear mounted tilt bar, which is barely visible from the front of the shutter.

Hinged panels can be hinged both together and to the window frame. T-posts in the center of the window opening can be added to increase design possibilities.

A bi-fold track option available on all Hunter Douglas shutter products allows for up six panels to be hinged together. Bypass track allows shutter panels to slide past each other on top tracks to open and close. Both track options are safe choices for doorways.

Frame Styles

The frame is an important finishing touch for plantation shutters. Some style options include inside and outside mounts, as well as decorative casings and trims.
