Louver size of Plantation Shutters
Most shutter come in 2 1/2″, 3 1/2″ and 4 1/2″ louver sizes. In choosing the right size louver the first thing to consider is if you have enough clearance for the size you want. Make sure the louvers can move freely without hitting anything.
Tall windows lend themselves to larger louvers. Shorter windows will look more balanced with smaller louvers.
Next look at the view through the louvers. If you want to have the least obstructed view, choose the largest louver that will fit.
Finally, decide the style of your decor. Larger louvers have more of a modern look. Smaller louvers have more of a traditional look.
Number of panels
The type of shutter you choose will determine the maximum width of your panels. Generally composite shutters have the narrowest maximum widths and wood shutters have the widest.
Wider panels will give you the least obstructed view and a more modern look. Smaller panel will give you a more obstructed view, but a more traditional look.
