You can experience several issues when you attempt to cover corner windows in Washington DC. If one of your windows spans both sides of the corner, blinds on each side can’t fit neatly together and will leave a gap for sunlight to come in or catch on each other.

Plantation shutters solve each of these problems. Thanks to their special design, they fit Their solid faux-wood or hardwood frame goes around your window with louvered shutter panels inside this frame.
