Plantation Shutters are one of the most popular shutter types installed in both homes and businesses in America today . The early Greeks developed shutters made out of marble. Over time the louvers changed to be constructed from wood allowing greater flexibility for movement. The concept of shutters were brought to the Americas by the Spanish and in the south they were brought into the plantation homes. The wider louvers were common and that is where the Plantation Shutters name developed .
Plantation shutters are interior shutters which are fitted with wide louvers about three and half to four and a half inches .These wide louvers give an elegant look which works well in most rooms in a house.They can be as good looking in a bedroom study or kitchen.
