Stained Plantation Shutters
Stained colored plantation shutters give a warmth and charm in a way that other window coverings cannot. People absolutely love stained wood plantation shutters. The reason for this is that wood, being a natural product, has an abundance of many grains, knots and natural variances in appearance. When the wood is stained, color tones pop out and vary because of these reasons. Stained plantation shutters will have similar variations in color tone and grain pattern – which gives this appeal. The darker the stain the richer the look and the lighter stains exude a peaceful radiance. This, of course, is why people love stained wood.

2 ½” Mahogany Plantation Shutters
For many people, the 2 ½” slat is a very popular choice for plantation shutters. This size slat does not present the awkward or bulky appearance that the 3 ½” or 4 ½” can give according to some people. Additionally, the 2 ½” is a good selection when one is mixing blinds in other areas of the home or business. Blinds normally are designed with the 2” or 2 ½” slat. Hence, mixing 2 ½” plantation shutters provides more continuity regarding slat size and therefore, is an excellent choice.

Custom drapery window treatments can range from very simple and plain to eye catching and lavish. Lengths are typically to the floor, but for a more dramatic effect, puddling will give a more elegant appearance. Puddling is utilizing a more excessive and generous use of the fabric that is “spilled” on the floor. Hence the name Puddling. This effect adds opulence and style to your drapes.
