3 Decisions to Make Prior to Ordering Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are arguably the most desirable of the window coverings available, and you can get them custom made so that they fit your windows perfectly. That’s not to say that there aren’t other great options such as Incline Village, NV window shutters.

But if you are intent on remodeling with plantation shutters, ensure that you make the following three decisions before finalizing the purchase transaction and paying for your order.

1. What Sort of Framing Do You Want?
When it comes to framing, what you really want to decide is what sort of shutter panel style is for you. You can opt for full shutters that open as a single panel, cafe shutters that are positioned over only 50% of the window and double hung shutters that offer the flexibility and functionality of being openable from the top or from the bottom. One thing to remember as you mull over the framing you want is that it’s easier to make the decision if you’re physically at a window covering retailer. That way, you can look at examples and try them out. Only then will you really be able to make an informed decision on what’s right for you and your home.

2. What Divider Rail Are You Looking for?
You’ll also want to decide on the divider rail before ordering your plantation shutters. What’s a divider rail? It’s a stationary strip that permits you to activate the top slats, otherwise known as louvers, while you keep the bottom slats shut. As well you can choose the height of your divider rail. Again, these are the sorts of decisions that are best made at a window covering retailer. You’ll be able to ask specific questions so that you can make a sensible decision.

3. Where Do You Want to Mount it?
This is another important consideration. You can mount shutters either inside of the window opening or outside of the window opening. Sometimes you’ll only have one of the two options to work with and other times you’ll be able to choose. How can you tell? Check your window for any possible molding or decorative trim that might make such a place unsuitable for mounting.
