Plantation Shutters Options » Panel Width

Shutters can be built with a single panel or two panels.

Single Panel

A single panel can offer a clean, open look that allows maximum light to enter the home.


However, when these panels are swung open into the room, they swing wide and are more likely to be obstructed by furniture.



Single Panel

Two Panels

Covering windows with two panels offers a more traditional look. Because each panel swings outward to the left and right, a shutter with two panels is also easier to open.


Additionally, with two narrow panels, louvers lay against one another more tightly when the louvers are closed, blocking the maximum amount of light.
