What are window shutters?

An interior window Shutter is a rectangular-shaped panel that is hinged to the window casing.

See the picture below and you will recall this time-honored window treatment.

Each panel has a set of louvers, horizontal rails, that tilt open and tilt close to control light and privacy.

You can open the panel fully, as it is hinged to your window, like your kitchen cabinet door. You enjoy the full outside view.

Plantation Shutters

You will find the term “Shutters” and “Plantation Shutters” used interchangeably.

Shutters made of wood were popular on the mansions of cotton and sugar plantations in the United States, hence the name plantation shutters.
