Why Choose Plantation Shutters For Your Home?

Nothing says “Old South luxury” quite like plantation shutters. They immediately add an element of genteel elegance to any space, while also providing the light blocking requirements you need of a window treatment. For twenty-four years, Artisan Shutter—the brand of shutter sold at A Shade Above in Charlotte and Cornelius, North Carolina—has been family owned, providing top-quality shutters to North and South Carolina. Let the Window Treatment experts at A Shade Above tell you a little about why plantation shutters are the perfect choice for your home.


Artisan shutters are locally manufactured by expertly trained professionals who have the customer’s best interest in mind through the entire design process. There’s a reason they call their shades “Artisan.” Artisan shutters have the consistency of larger brands, but the attention to detail and individual flair of local artisans. Aside from being painstakingly made, Artisan plantation shutters are also custom-colored, so that you will be able to find plantation shutters that match any décor.

Light Control

While you could sit and stare at the beauty of your custom-made Artisan plantation shutters, window treatments are also designed for a purpose, and that purpose is to control the light that enters your home. The wooden slats that comprise plantation shutters block light very effectively, but not quite to the extent of blackout curtains. And with no dangling cords, plantation shutters are some of the simplest window treatments to control, so you can be sure that you will always have the perfect amount of light in your home whenever you need it.

Whether you find yourself beguiled by their effortlessly chic look, their versatility, or their ease of use, there is a set of Artisan plantation shutters perfect for any homeowner.
