If you are reading this, then you have decided on or are currently thinking about adding plantation shutters to your living space. Allow us to offer you a virtual high five! Choosing a window treatment for your home is not always an easy task. However, plantation shutters are a great pick due to their style versatility. Read on to discover which style of plantation shutter will be a perfect match for your living space!


If you believe your home would look best in a classic look, then allow us to introduce you to the classic Heritance® hardwood shutters. These custom shutters provide the gorgeous look of hardwood with the added features of color and glaze that allow you to make it your own. In fact, Heritance® comes in over 35 colors that range from light to dark, which lets you exercise your style any way you please.

The wood on these plantation shutters can be further customized with a hand-painted glaze. For example, a traditional Glaze can be applied if you want the richness of the wood stains to be enhanced. The Glazed + Burnished look, on the other hand, will create a worn look with just a hint of shine to your custom shutters. If you prefer your Heritance® shutters to display a distressed look with dents, cracks and wormholes strewn about, consider the Classic Distressed or Heirloom Distressed look. Lastly, if you wish to have a look that displays knots, pinholes, growth rings, and mineral streaks, then the Rustic glaze is for you.
