Farmhouse Style Shutters

Farmhouse style décor has gained popularity in recent years, and the trend shows no sign of losing traction based on current interior design trends. Comfortable, inviting, and chic, farmhouse style homes combine elements of wooden and white tones to create a rustic yet modern style. What better window treatment to fit a farmhouse style décor than a white or wooden plantation shutter in one of our many custom style options?  

Choose White and Wooden Rustic Tones  

Available in white and neutral beige paints, or stains ranging from light Natural or Golden Oak to darker Coffee or Black Walnut, you are sure to find a color to match your farmhouse interior style. If you are going for a more rustic, traditional look, a wood stain lets you see the visible wood grain; whereas paint is a great option if you are looking for a smooth color coating the wood so that the grain is no longer visible.  


We suggest ordering up to 4 of our free color samples to find your perfect color match. For the more DIY savvy, you can also order unfinished wooden shutters – either raw and ready for staining, or primed for painting, perfect for Farmhouse style plantation shutters.  

Farmhouse Plantation Shutter Design Tips  

Smaller slats like our 2 ½" or 3” are popular for creating a farmhouse look and feel. They still let in plenty of light without looking too contemporary. A central tilt rod will match with those smaller slats to give you a more traditional look fitting with the country chic farmhouse style.  

You can use full height shutters to cover your full window opening, or use a café style shutter to add the design element, style, and privacy to the lower portion of your windows while still keeping the top of the window open to allow plenty of natural sunlight to keep with the bright and inviting farmhouse style.  

Another popular design element featured in farmhouse style homes are solid panel shutters. Solid panel shutters can be used to create a sliding barn door over any doorway or as a room divider. They can also be used as cabinet doors or closet doors.  


You may also opted for louvered shutters as closet or cabinet doors, with an option to have the louvers fixed closed. This is a great option for shutters being used as a decorative special project, rather than to cover a window opening. Fixed louvers are available in our Classic Poplar Hardwood range.  

Keep it Classic for the Farmhouse Shutters Design 

 The Classic Poplar Hardwood range offers the most customizable options including the most colors, frame styles, and slat sizes to choose from. In addition to fixed louvers mentioned above, it is also available in special shapes if you have an arched, triangular, round or otherwise special shaped window opening in your farmhouse home. This range also offers our standard color selection, unfinished wood, or custom color matching.
