5 Decisions To Think About When Ordering Plantation Shutters In San Diego
Purchasing plantation shutters for your San Diego residence is an important investment. Shutters offer value in beauty, functionality, and energy savings. But before you start shopping, there are some things to consider about window shutters. Here are 5 decisions you’ll have to make when ordering plantation shutters in San Diego, CA.
Plantation Shutters Louver Size
Louvers are the horizontal parts of a shutter panel that can be adjusted for the right amount of light and view. Plantation shutters are custom made with three main louver sizes to choose from. The 4.5” is the widest louver. It’s our best selling louver size in the San Diego area because it provides the most view and light - and it’s a breeze to dust.
With smaller 2.5” and 3.5” louvers, there are more louvers on the window. These shutters end up with a smaller viewing area and may take longer to clean. Keep these in mind when purchasing indoor shutters.
Plantation Shutters Frame Style
Plantation shutters are fixed on a window using a frame. The shutter frame that borders the panel adds another custom option. Some frames look and fit better depending on the style of window in the room. Take a look at the selection of frame styles that can be yours.
Reach out to your shutter professional about the styles of frames available in your town - and whether an outside mount or an inside mount is best for this window.
Plantation Shutters Tilt Rod
The tilt rod is the upright element that lets you to move the shutters all at once. One of your options is a front mount tilt bar. This classic tilt rod is visible on the front of the panel. To adjust the shutters, simply adjust the tilt rod.
