Shutter Options And Parts In Washington DC

When deciding on which plantation shutters to buy in Washington DC, there are lots of shutter options to choose from. Whether it’s picking the frame style that fits your window just right or what type of tilt rod you should use, our design professionals will provide you with the options for shutters in Washington DC so you can match the shutters to your style.

 
 

Colors

Both Polywood plantation shutters and Ovation hardwood shutters are available in several colorspaints, and stains.
 
 

Louver Sizes

 

Plantation shutter louvers are manufactured in three different sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. Although louver size is a matter of personal preference, we’ve observed from our years of experience that with larger louvers you can let more light in to liven up the room – and see more of your view.

When furniture and household items are blocking a portion of your window, moving the shutter louvers allows more light to come in. For that reason, the larger the louver, the more you can see through your plantation shutters in Washington DC!

Frame Styles

Thanks to a frame or hang strip, your plantation shutters in Washington DC can be attached to a window. Our design specialists offer custom mounting, even without a frame if needed. Here are some of the frame shutter styles we offer. The Craftsman frame is only offered for Polywood® shutters. Contact our a design expert for more options. 

 
 
 
 
 
 

Tilt Rods

Our best-selling tilt rod option is our traditional front mount tilt rod. This tilt rod style is the one most often associated with plantation shutters, and is a large part of their elegance. Because the tilt rod hangs on the front of the shutters, adjusting your shutters so light can come in and completely closing them for additional privacy is a breeze. 

You can also choose our rear-mounted tilt rod, which is an easy and practical way to have the feel of a hidden tilt rod, but is less expensive than an internally mounted gear mechanism. There’s a thin metal strip on the back corner of each louver that orchestrates the movement of your plantation shutters.
