Creative modifications to standard plantation shutters

Several different creative things we can help you do with plantation shutters.

Here are a few examples of some creative things we've done with shutters.

One cool combination we've done has garnered a lot of interest: Our plantation shutters combined with Luna Piena faux ironwork inside the shutter frame to give the look of a transom. You can even see an example of this combination in our San Antonio showroom. Designers really dig this look and combination of materials!

Another pretty idea: this Austin area homeowner had a nice peice of stained glass art they wanted to feature in the same window in which they also wanted to have a shutter... so we found a way to give them both. we built the shutter with a full window sized frame, but made it so the shutter panel only came up 2/3rds of the way, leaving the perfect size space for the homeowner to hang their stained glass. It came out beautifully!

Finally, this San Antonio area home had a lot of neat rustic architectural elements and the homeowner wanted to carry them over into the plantation shutters. We built the custom shutters to the customers specifications, then installed them in the home unfinished. The homeowner then hired a professional faux painter to come in and faux paint the shutters with a rustic looking finish to match the rest of the house. Very unique and just perfect for this home.
