Want to update your window treatments in Orlando but not sure where to start? We’ve examined the difference between two of our best-selling window treatments—custom plantation shutters
and horizontal blinds
Both have your windows covered for privacy and light control. But they have several distinct features.
Plantation shutters have wide louvers. This classic window treatment is fixed on your window frame. They’re often seen in white, off-white or natural stain colors. Or created in the color of your choice.
While the louvers are controlled by a visible or hidden tilt rod, the shutters can also open away from windows like a door.
They can be either:
- Wood plantation shutters
- Faux wood plantation shutters
- Vinyl plantation shutters

Blinds have slim slats created from metal, wood, fabric or other materials. This cost-effective window treatment comes in a range of colors and textures.
Window blinds are usually controlled by a pull cord, although some types are cordless.
They’re created in styles like vertical blinds or horizontal blinds.
Wood horizontal blinds or faux wood horizontal blinds are sometimes referred to as plantation blinds because of their wide slats.

4. Safe for Your Family
Plantation shutters are cord-free, so you don’t have to worry if your family has small children or pets.
At Louver Shop of Orlando, we use nontoxic, water-based finishes that are safe for your family and the environment.
Foreign-made shutters are frequently coated with paints high in volatile organic compounds, which can cause headaches and dizziness.

Shutters are simple to clean with a duster or rag. Ours don’t require a lot of maintenance, because they’ll never demand tightening or adjustment.

We designed our quality shutters to last for decades. As a custom, permanent window treatment, they can also increase your home’s value.
How do Shutters Compare to Blinds?
Interior shutters are an investment in your home and offer many benefits.
While window blinds are usually less pricey, you’ll need to replace them more frequently. They also don’t afford as much energy efficiency.
