Plantation shutters look beautiful in various interior window treatment applications. Prior to deciding on what shutter will look best, read some frequently asked questions people have about plantation shutters.

Why are plantation shutters so popular?

Shutters have long been a popular option for window coverings because they offer so many benefits:

- Sophisticated and classic look
- Easily controlled light and ventilation
- Can provide more privacy than curtains or blinds while still allowing light and air in
- Incredibly easy to maintain
- Long-lasting
- Increase home value and curb appeal

What are the parts of a plantation shutter called?

A shutter is comprised of 5 main components:

- Louvers are the blades of the shutters, and come in sizes ranging from 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches
- The Tilt-Bar can be in the front, middle of the shutter, or hidden in the rear if using the clearview system. Either way, it controls how open the shutters are.
- The Top and Bottom Rails outline the shutters and contain the louvers between them.
- The Divider Rail runs through the center of some shutters, depending on size. When there's a divider rail, the top and bottom louvers operate independently of each other allowing for the top to be open and the bottom closed, for example.
- The Frame surrounds the shutter and finishes off the decorative look of the window.
