- Should I go halfway up my window with Plantation Shutters?
I hear this question quite often in this area. Many homeowners are concerned about blocking too much light or view. It's true, a half shutter will give you privacy on the bottom and leave the top open for light and view, but is it the right look for a Big Plantation Shutter? The “café” or half shutter look works well for the small intricate doors of a colonial 1 ¼” louver, however the large construction of a Plantation Shutter can look funny or incomplete when it’s stopped half way or at a specific point on the window.
