4. What does it mean when Shutters or Blinds are Custom designed?

Every one of our Plantation Blind or Shutter products is made from scratch. They are custom created to fit your doors or windows perfectly. We send a member of our sales team to you to take initial measurements. This allows us to give you an exact quote.
Most of the time we will send a fitter out again to make sure all measurements are exact,  right down to the millimeter. This is when we then send them to the manufacturer so your Shutter or Blind can get made. Our blinds and shutters are custom made from a good deal of experience and expertise. This assures you of getting excellent results. Each Shutter or Blind fits exactly.

5. Why is it that Plantation Shutters come with different blade sizes and shapes?

Traditional Plantation Shutters came with rounded edges and flat profile blades. These came with blades that were thicker in the middle and narrower towards the edges. While the blade shape will not affect the functionality of the blind or shutter, it does affect the appearance. This is more of a detail that suits personal tastes. Some people think that the small blade has a traditional look. We like to provide our customers with options.
Ultimately, the styling of the finished blinds and shutters is all up to you. When your sales member arrives at your home, you can see a variety of blade sizes and shapes. They carry plenty of samples with them for you to see. This helps you so that you can make an informed choice about what you want for your home or office’s shutters or blinds.
