Today’s plantation shutters come in many different styles and louver sizes. The most popular louver size where I live is 2 1/2 inch as shown in this family room.
The shutters depicted here in this room appear to have the larger 3 1/2 inch louver style. What size louver you choose is really a personal decision.
The 2 1/2 inch louver is more traditional and is a great choice for average size rooms with normal ceiling heights.
If you have huge rooms with soaring ceilings, the 3 1/2 inch louver may be a better fit.
Shutters designed with a divider rail or in the double hung fashion are a popular choice in bathrooms.
They allow for closure of the bottom louvers for privacy while the top louvers can be left opened for a view and light.
It’s harder to get that kind of function with curtains, drapes or wood blinds.
