Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the view that your windows offer, but without the right window treatments, that may be difficult. Some window treatments can block or obscure your view to the outdoors, but plantation shutters offer many customization options to help you enjoy the beauty that summer has to offer. At A Shade Above, we offer beautiful Artisan Plantation Shutters, and we can help you create a set that will look amazing in your home. Stop by one of our showrooms today to learn more about how to spruce up your home with custom shutters.

Artisan Plantation Shutters can do a lot for your home, including increasing its resale value. They are extremely durable window fashions offering great levels of privacy and light control, and their louvers are easy to adjust. Simply tilt the slats to redirect any light that enters your home.

With plantation shutters, there are many choices to ensure they meet all of your style and function needs. One option is the louver size. There are three options available – 2 ½, 3 ½, and 4 ½ inch louvers. The larger the louvers, the more viewing area you have when they are open.

Another option is to incorporate a divider rail or split tile bar in your shutters. This is perfect for people who want both privacy and more natural light streaming in their home by opening the top and bottom of your shutter louvers independently. This is a great idea for bathrooms as you can close the bottom half of the shutter for privacy and open the top half, allowing natural light to stream in.

Artisan Plantation Shutters are custom made for your home, allowing you to choose the color and style that will work best with your existing decor. They are designed specifically with your windows in mind, so you’ll never have to worry about whether they will fit or work properly. We measure your windows and custom build and install your shutters, so you are guaranteed a perfect fit every time.

Do you have specialty-shaped windows in your home, like arches or ovals? We can custom fit those, as well. Our shutters can be built to fit a wide variety of window shapes. To learn more about the available options from Artisan Shutter, call to visit one of our showrooms today.
