Understanding Louver Size
The biggest choice you’ll face while designing your plantation shutters is selecting the louver size, which refers to the depth of the horizontal slat that can be tilted open and closed on the shutter. Typical louver sizes include 2.5 inches, 3.5 inches, and 4.5 inches.
Are 2.5 inch shutters out of style? The short answer is Yes, 2.5 inch shutters are out of style. They’re just not as trendy as they once were. They used to be quite popular back in the early and late 90s, but in the late 2000s, interior design trends leaned towards bigger, bolder, and simpler designs.
Nevertheless, our factory still produces 2.5” louvers. They account for approximately 3% of all our shutter sales. So, who purchases them? Some individuals opt for them to match their existing 2.5 inch shutters, while others with historic homes prefer the traditional look over more modern designs.
