Just like each room in your home serves a different function, so do your windows. The beauty of plantation shutters is that regardless of the operating feature you choose for individual windows and doors, the design and styling of your space is coordinated. With three operating features: hinged panel, Bi-fold track and Bypass track, you can meet the unique needs of your home’s characteristics. Whichever you choose, know that all three operating features are simple to use with child-safety in mind.

You have two choices when it comes to the tilt of your plantation shutters. The first, front tilt, we consider to be classic styling, carrying the traditional look of shutters. The tilt bar runs down the center–it’s the classic styling you’ve come to love. The second choice is known as rear tilt, or even more aptly named as hidden tilt, hiding the tilt bar behind the side of your shutters. Both tilt choices mean your shutters are easily adjusted by touching the louvers. The look of rear tilt lends itself toward contemporary styling. Without the tilt bar in front, your view-through is maximized, also allowing for a cleaner, more sleek appearance.

The function of your plantation shutters, from tilt choices to operating features are incredibly important to the atmosphere of your home. But what about the details of style? Shutters complement a wide range of styles because of all they have to offer your home’s design. Available in paints, stains and woodgrains, it’s up to you to choose what look you love. And then there’s the specialty shapes and customization for characteristics. From arches and angles, to door handle cutouts and bay windows, plantation shutters will provide the sophisticated look your windows need.
