The Perfect Plantation Shutters for Every Room

Jul 01, 2022

Interior shutters, also known as plantation shutters, are a classic and elegant addition to any room in your home. They blend long-lasting finishes with exceptional craftsmanship and are both durable and easy to operate.

Louvers, the trademark feature of interior shutters, give them an elegant look, which works well in dining rooms and bedrooms. But these versatile window treatments also translate to a more casual setting like living rooms and kitchens. Shutter options include the following popular trends: wooden, plantation, faux wood, composite and door shutters.

Here’s a breakdown by type to help you determine which is best for your home.
Composite Plantation Shutters
Composite plantation shutters, sometimes called engineered wood, fake wood or faux wood, are made of engineered wood, which is MDF wrapped in a vinyl or PVC coating. They are very sturdy, while also being weather and humidity resistant. They offer an affordable alternative to wood shutters.

Vinyl Plantation Shutters
Vinyl shutters are the least expensive of the plantation blinds. Vinyl shutters contain no wood, but they can have PVC or aluminum supports for stability. Their main advantage is cost. They’re also weather resistant and good in high-moisture areas.

Wood Plantation Shutters
The ultimate shutter is a true wood shutter.  It has the highest strength-to-weight ratio, making it very light and strong. Wood can be customized into varying shapes and sizes, and it can be painted or stained, unlike vinyl and composite, which are prefabricated into styles and colors.

With all of the different window treatments available, it can be difficult to make the right choice. No matter what style you are looking for, you can count on our team of interior designers to bring your design ideas to life.

We are extremely pleased with our whole experience with this company. From sales to installation, everyone we dealt with was courteous and professional. They delivered exactly as promised from the quote, to the installation and did a great job! The shutters took our house from beautiful to stunning! Highly recommend this company!
Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.
The entire experience was excellent. We had roller shades installed throughout our home. The online notification system after your order is great. We received regular email updates regarding the status of the fabrication of our order, delivery, and installation.
Southwest Blinds was wonderful to work with. The communication was excellent. All the employees from sales to the installers were professional and kind. Answered all our questions. I highly recommend them.
Southwest Blinds and Shutters provided a remarkable product for a great value! We are extremely pleased with the job done. James is a true professional who stands behind his company on all levels. We would highly recommend Southwest Blinds & Shutters and are looking forward to having the rest of our windows done with them.
Fast and professional. Super efficient and detail-oriented. Very pleased with the service they provided. Don’t hesitate to schedule them for your blind and shutter needs.
They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.
This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!
The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
