Plantation shutters in Sacramento are the favored type of shutters because they bring in the light readily when open, keep out the outside temperature when closed – and emanate beauty no matter if open or closed.
The wide louvers are one of the aspects that make plantation shutters stand out from other window treatments. You can choose louvers from 2.5” to 4.5” wide. These large slats result in a better view out your window and allow more light into your room. Attaching the louvers together, the stiles are the firm vertical members of the shutter panel, allowing for the movement of the louvers in unison.
We offer four exceptional types of indoor plantation shutters that are custom crafted to fit your windows just right: Polywood®Ovation® woodReclaimed Wood, and Studio Shutters.
Polywood Shutters 
Made from a premium synthetic wood substitute, Polywood shutters won’t warp, split, crack, or chip. The beautiful paint on these indoor shutters won't fade or yellow as they’re exposed to sunlight because of our unique paint that’s baked onto each shutter and infused with UV stabilizers.
Ovation wood shutters 
Ovation shutters are handmade with solid teak and are offered in an array of stains to enhance your current furniture and decor.
 Reclaimed Wood Shutters
Reclaimed Wood shutters are built from repurposed wood that was once a part of old buildings, fences and other structures. Every piece of wood is unique, and together they form not only a functional shutter, but a modern work of art for your windows.
The newest addition to the Sunburst line, Studio Shutters are a classic style plantation shutter that carries the same clean look as our Polywood shutters. With a few less options than other plantation shutters, Studio shutters are a great choice for homeowners who want to stay within a budget with their window coverings.

Traditional Colonial Shutters 

Traditional Colonial Shutters
With the traditional look of smaller louvers, colonial shutters are an older choice for Sacramento.
The sizes for colonial louvers generally range from 0.75” to 1.25”.
Between us, plantation shutters are the preferred type of shutter in Sacramento. When you want shutters that showcase beauty and are energy efficient, louver size matters. Whereas colonial shutters have the smaller louvers, Polywood and Ovation plantation shutters – which are built for beauty and energy efficiency – are top pick. And remember: larger louvers are a breeze to clean and adjust.
