When deciding on which plantation shutters to buy in Chicago, there are plenty of shutter options that you can choose from. Whether it’s deciding what kind of tilt rod you should use or which frame style matches your window perfectly, our design specialists will provide you with all the options for shutters in Chicago so your shutters seamlessly fit your home.
Both Polywood plantation shutters and Ovation hardwood shutters are available in various colors
, and stains
Plantation shutter louvers are manufactured in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. Although louver size is your choice, we’ve seen over decades of experience that with larger louvers you can let more light in to liven up the room – and have a larger view to look out from.
If fixtures and furniture are blocking a portion of your window, moving the shutter louvers allows more light to come in. In this case, the larger the louver, the more you can see through your plantation shutters in Chicago!
Thanks to a frame or hang strip, all plantation shutters in Chicago can be mounted on a window. Our design experts will do custom mounting, even without a frame if necessary. Here are some of the frame shutter styles we offer. The Craftsman frame is only available for Polywood® shutters. Consult with a design expert for more options.
Our most popular tilt rod option is our traditional front mount tilt rod. This style of tilt rod is the one regularly associated with plantation shutters, and is a large part of their elegance. Since the tilt rod is mounted in front of the shutters, opening your shutter louvers to let sunlight in and completely closing them for more privacy is a breeze.
You can also choose our rear-mounted tilt rod
, which is an easy and practical way to get the feel of a hidden tilt rod, but is less expensive than an internally mounted gear mechanism. Using a thin metal strip on the back corner of each louver, the tilt rod controls the movement of your plantation shutters.
Door Handle Cutout
Doors covered with shutters in Chicago are elegant. But what happens with a door that has a handle that reaches over the glass? Our designers cut the shutters around the door handle. With that, your shutters look beautiful and are functional. And you are able to save the door handle!
These modern shutters give your doors a custom look while letting you maintain the consistent look of shutters throughout your house. Door handle cutouts are available in rounded and square shapes. No matter what style you pick, our installation professionals guide you in customizing your doors with shutter options in Chicago to fit décor and personal taste.
