Plantation shutters are interior shutters consisting of large louvered panels that are hinged to a frame and installed on a window as a window treatment. Plantation shutters differ from traditional window blinds and window shades in that they are more like furniture than they are blinds or shades and unlike cafe shutters which have smaller louvers.
Plantation shutters range in size from 2 1/2 inch to 4 1/2 inch louvers and are usually constructed of real wood like bass or ramin, but can also be made of non-wood products like faux wood or vinyl. Wood plantation shutters can be finished in painted or stained finishes and are available in many color choices.
As well as color choices there are many other options available with plantation shutters such as hinge style including hidden hinges, tilt bar style that also include a hidden tilt bar style, frame styles and more. Plantation shutters can be custom made to fit most any shape window including arch and eyebrow style.
Unlike traditional blinds like wood blinds and faux wood blinds, plantation shutters are considered a higher end product and will cost more money than other traditional window coverings. Production time is usually longer as well with most plantation shutters requiring 4 to 6 weeks from the time of placing an order to having the shutters installed.
Faux Wood Blinds
If you are considering changing your current window blinds to wood blinds, you may want to consider Faux Wood instead of real wood. Faux wood blinds are an inexpensive alternative to real wood blinds. Faux wood blinds are made of man-made composite materials as opposed to natural real wood blinds. The materials used in faux wood blinds make them more durable as well as less expensive than wood blinds. Faux wood is made from a high quality polyvinyl material that resists fading, warping and cracking.
Faux wood blinds are not like the fake plastic looking blinds of the past. Today's faux wood blinds come in many colors, sizes and styles to compliment any décor. Because faux wood blinds are moisture resistant they are a great choice for high moisture areas like kitchens and bathrooms. With UV ratings as high as 500 faux wood blinds are a great source of insulations as well.
The most popular slat size for faux wood blinds is 2 inches, but different manufacturers offer different size choices such as 2 ½ and 3 inch sizes. Many options are also available for faux wood blinds such as decorative cloth tapes, rout-less (no holes) as well as valance options and many more.
The term "faux wood" has been misspelled and mispronounced over the years. Some people may misspell faux wood as, fauxwood, fox wood, foxwood, fax wood, faxwood, faux-wood and other variations, but the proper term is Faux Wood.
Whether you are purchasing blinds for a new home or simply remodeling your existing home, consider faux wood blinds as an economical and practical alternative to real wood blinds.
Bamboo Blinds (also known as Woven Woods or Bamboo Shades) are a great choice for creating a tropical theme. Bamboo, Grasscloth, Matchstick, and unique Reeds in a multitude of colors, styles and textures can transform any room into a tropical paradise.
Bamboo Blinds are as versatile as traditional Blinds and shades. Custom Bamboo blinds and shades have many options that can be added to them. Choose from Top Down/ Bottom Up or add a Privacy or Blackout Liner to your Bamboo Blinds. Add an accent with a color coordinated cloth Binding or a custom Hem. Bamboo Blinds are available in all price ranges to fit any budget. Choose a ready made Bamboo Blind if you are on a budget or a custom made bamboo blind and have it sized to fit your window with the colors and options you select.
When shopping for bamboo blinds please be aware that bamboo is a natural product and that colors and hues can vary from one dye lot to another. The same pattern of bamboo can vary from a green tint to a brown tint. This is not considered a defect, and if it's a custom bamboo blind it cannot be returned or exchanged as this is considered to be the nature of the product. If you are purchasing bamboo blinds for more than one window make sure you purchase all the shades at the same time to avoid the shades being a different dye lot.
Bamboo Blinds should only be used indoors and never in areas where they will be exposed to water or high moisture areas as the slats may warp. Bamboo Blinds fit well into any style decor and liven up any room. Add Tropical plants and bamboo accents to complete your tropical theme. Bamboo Blinds will bring the look of the Orient into your home and give you beauty as well as privacy and protection from the sun.
