But before you launch your search, there are some things to keep in mind about window shutters. Here are 5 decisions to make when ordering plantation shutters in Boise, ID.
Plantation Shutters Louver Size
Louvers are the shutters’ horizontal elements that tilt to let as much or as little of the light and view in. Plantation shutters come in three main louver sizes to choose from. The widest louver is 4.5”. It’s our best selling louver size in the Boise area because it lets in the most scenery and sunlight - and it’s a breeze to dust.
With smaller 2.5” and 3.5” louvers, there are more louvers on the window. These plantation shutters have a smaller viewing area and may take longer to clean. Louver sizes are a key consideration when ordering shutters.
