When it comes to window furnishings, Plantation Shutters offer the greatest scope for flexibility and options. Many window coverings are either up or down, open or closed whereas Plantation Shutters can be fully open, fully closed, tilted at any angle within the 180 degree range. You can also split the rotation controls so you could for example, have the top half open with the bottom half closed. So if flexibility in Light, Air, Temprature and Privacy control is important to you, Plantation Shutters will be your best option.
