Before diving into colors, let's consider the different plantation shutter styles. Whether your home is modern, traditional, or somewhere in between, we’ve got styles to complement every type of architecture.

Choosing the right style sets the stage for the color that will bring out the best in your home. Here are your options:

Full Height Shutters
Offering complete window coverage, Full Height Shutters provide excellent privacy and light control, making them ideal for any room in the home.

Tier-On-Tier Shutters
These shutters offer the ultimate in flexibility, with independently opening top and bottom panels that allow for full light and view, complete privacy, or a mix of both.

Solid Raised Shutters
Solid Raised Shutters, with their all-wood design, not only add a traditional, elegant look to your windows but also provide excellent insulation and noise reduction.
