Different uses plantation shutters

Apr 19, 2022

With a little imagination, you can put Interior Plantation Shutters to work all around your home or office!

Plantation Shutters (not to be confused with free-hanging Plantation Blinds!) are considered to be one of the most versatile window treatments. Not only do interior shutters add beauty and value to a home (or office!), plantation shutters are also a fantastic window covering option for controlling heat & reducing energy costs.

Because these custom interior window shutters are so functional and flexible — plus come in a wide variety of colors and materials — many people dream up unique uses for plantation shutters around the house to add a bit of the “WOW” factor.

Plantation Shutters as Closet DoorsReplace Traditional Doors With Shutters

Whether you’re wanting to replace a drab old closet door, or want to add character to the entryways of common areas, custom plantation shutters can easily be modified to work in most doorways.

One recent trend is to install a sliding door in the entryway that leads to heavy-traffic spaces like laundry rooms, keeping rooms, or pantries. These are often rooms that easily get disorganized…and tend to stay that way longer than we like to admit. An interesting & unique sliding door helps to “camouflage” the entryway while hiding messes.

We can even supply you with custom shutters, in a color of your choice, that will serve as French doors for leading to patios, porches, or sun rooms!

Shutters Are Ideal Room Dividers

Plantation Shutters as Room DividersWhen you need to divvy up space within a room, interior shutters are a terrific option for creating a faux wall or temporary divider to add a bit of privacy without the huge costs associated with adding a permanent interior wall.

For those of you with a home office…or maybe even sharing office space with multiple co-workers, stand-alone plantation shutters can be a more affordable option than erecting traditional cubicles!

Plus, we carry brands of shutters that can be customized into floor-to-ceiling room dividers, which will add a fresh, contemporary feel to your space.
