White Wood Plantation Shutters

Wood plantation shutters from Blinds By Design are assembled using dowel joinery which ensures solid construction. Louver tilting tension can be adjusted through a tensioning screw on each panel installed. The Stiles vary but are usually 1-1/16 inch thick. The rails are recessed in the typical and traditional manner at 3/4 inch thick. The shutters are attached to the stiles using heavy duty hinges that support the weight of the panels. All hinges are premounted to the plantation shutter panels (not frame). When Blinds By Design installs your wood plantation shutters we make sure we only use the best hardware to ensure long term quality and use. 


The stiles on painted or unfinished paint grade plantation shutters may be made from multiple pieces of wood. This provides for additional stability and resistance to warping. This is sometimes referred to as finger joinery. Stained shutters will not have finger joints unless the height necessitates it. This occurs when the stiles are around 72 inches long or longer. Even so, the “fingers” of the finger joint are NOT visible from the front of the shutters. They are only visible when looking at the stile from the side. The front maintains a smooth transition from one piece of wood to the next just like any other piece of fine furniture.

Operable or Fixed Louvers on your Plantation Shutters?

Wood Plantation Shutters from Orlando Plantation Shutters are available with either operable louvers (standard) or fixed louvers. If you are using your plantation shutters for something other than window coverings like closet doors, room dividers, wall decorations or cabinet doors,  the fixed louver is a popular option for those installations. If you choose fixed Louvers, they can be fixed in either of the options below:
  • Lock them into place with a tension screw – When orlando plantation shutters installs your new wood plantation shutters we will install the standard operable louvers. We then will work together to adjust the louvers to any angle you prefer and tighten the louver tension screw to secure them into the fixed position.
  • Order them already locked into place – When you place your order with orlando plantation shutters we show up with the plantation shutters already locked into place and ready to go. This is a no charge option. You specify at what angle you would like your louvers fixed and the factory builds them accordingly. The factory fixes them in position by joining the louvers to the stiles using two dowels in each end of each louver. When you do fixed louvers in this manner, the tilt bar is eliminated since there is no longer a need for it.
