What are Plantation Shutters?
Wooden Shutters have a rich history, louvred Shutters were originally made in stone and marble in the Mediterranean during the Roman era, as the Spanish travelled and colonised South America, the shutters started to appear on Cotton and Sugar Plantations. As the popularity of wooden shutters grew around the world, the name Plantation Shutters stuck.
Interior Shutters are a permanent window dressing that is available in two options, louvred and Solid Panel. The history of solid panel shutters span hundreds of years, especially in British architecture. Solid Panel Shutters were carved from wood and installed as practical features in country houses and mansions, the solid shutters were used to block out and try to trap heat in the houses.
If you were to visit Arley Hall & Gardens, seen as Tommy Shelby’s home in BBC’s Peaky Blinders, in Northwich, you would get a glimpse of stunning dark-stained solid panel shutters that blend into the dark wood-panelled walls.
