What are Plantation Blinds?

You may have considered custom blinds or made to measure curtains made from a fabric of your choice but yet you may still be looking for something completely different to suit your traditional or modern home. You may be asking this exact question – just what are Plantation Blinds? – so, let’s find out in this week’s blog.

Plantation Blinds are more commonly known as Window Shutters, Wooden Shutters or Plantation Shutters. So, what are Plantation Blinds? They are an effortlessly elegant, timeless and iconic design choice of window dressing which has become exceedingly popular. Plantation Blinds are constructed as a panel of large horizontal slats or louvres set into their own frames. Once fully open, they maximise light and air circulation; once fully closed they maximise privacy and yet they can be angled in-between.

Plantation shutters are bespoke manufactured here at Blind Technique, meaning they are made to survey, just for you. Their aesthetic and functional versatility means many of our valued customers dress their living room with wooden shutters, others select vinyl shutters for the bathroom whilst we are receiving more orders still for aluminium security shutters for a home office space, for example.
