Plantation blinds are often called plantation shutter blinds or plantation shutters.
Plantation shutter blinds are louvred panels fixed either inside or outside windows and doors.
They look great and come in a variety of different types of materials and prices.
Plantation blinds are the ideal way to control light and privacy in your home and produce a look that is elegant and stylish. They allow to focus light away from furniture or decorations to help prevent damage from sunlight. Plantation blinds provide added insulation and safety to your home.
Plantation Blinds - Where to Install?
Plantation blinds can be installed on virtually any window, French door or patio sliding doors. They can also be used as room dividers fitted on tracks. If the window/door opens inwards they can always be mounted outside of the reveal.

Plantation Blinds TypesThere are 3 types of plantation shutter blinds depending on height:
- full height shutters,
- cafe style shutters,
- tier on tier shutters.
Full Height Plantation Shutter Blinds
Full height plantation blinds are window shutters that cover the length and width of the window. They are the simplest style of window shutters and create a clean, elegant effect. Full height plantation shutter blinds are ideally suited to all rooms in the home, as well as used to cover patio and sliding doors, and as room dividers.
Cafe style Plantation Shutter Blinds
Cafe style plantation blinds are a cost effective way to add shutters to your home. Originating from French cafes, they were used to create a cosy, private dining experience for occupants, whilst still allowing plenty of natural light to enter the room. Today cafe style plantation shutters are often used in kitchens and living rooms for much the same reasons, and offer a chic alternative to net curtains. They work equally well in commercial premises such as bars, cafes and restaurants.
Tier on Tier Plantation Shutter Blinds
Tier on tier are a popular choice of plantation shutter blinds due to their versatility. Tier on tier plantation shutters consist of two sets of shutters, one above the other. This allows for each to be open or closed independently of the other – giving you great control over light levels and privacy. This style of plantation blinds is often chosen for Victorian and Edwardian houses where privacy is required without compromising on light
Plantation Blinds Care
Plantation shutter blinds are easily cleaned:

- run a vacuum cleaner over them
