These tend to go by many names; interior window shutters, window shutters indoor, wood interior shutters, inside window shutters, custom plantation shutters, interior shutters, custom shutters, window shutters, you get the drift...  Let's just start with plantation shutters.  

Window shutters are the most durable and sturdy window treatment. They can cover not only
the windows inside of your house, but cover and decorate the windows around the outside of
your house. They have been popular since the first Elizabeth’s reign in the 1550’s. Shutters
were so popular, they were often found on homes that had yet to incorporate pure glass
windows. These shutters were often just plain wooden boards, but they were enough to keep
the middle-aged house-wives happy.


Shutters have evolved since then, but not by much. Exterior shutters have since then added
color and an individual slat that looks nailed together to others, and often don’t even match the
size of the windows they are near. Indoor shutters are an easy treatment for interior windows,
but often come at a price point many are trying to avoid. In this guide, we will be giving you all
the information you need to make an educated decision with the shutters or window treatments
you choose for your home. ​

What if my existing window has a molding already?

That is just fine.  We will match the color of the molding so you would not notice a difference.  If your window doesn't have a molding around it even better!  Now you get to choose which molding you want to surround your new plantation shutters!

Visible Control Rods vs Hidden Control Rods    

 

This one is totally personal preference.  Some people love the rod down the middle of the plantation shutters.  Kinda has that country feel and I totally love that.  I also love the idea of a clean slat view.  Here are two

examples so you can see what I'm talking about.  There are many names for these as well.  Tilt rods, hidden tilt rods, rodless, control rods, and probably many others I can't think of right now. Notice how one of the images has another rod down the middle of all the slats and the other one doesn't?  That is the difference.

To Split or Not to Split the Tilt Rod in Plantation Shutters

This one is again preference and then what is the use case for the location of the window.  If they are on higher windows and you just want to either have them open or not then I would not advise to split the rod.  If the windows are in a bedroom I think it is fun to close the bottom 2/3 of the shutters and leave the top 1/3 open to let the light in.  This way it gives the privacy you want without taking away all the sunlight.  It just depends on how you would use it and what look you want.
