Indoor shutters are very versatile in their mounting. The manner in which they mount designates how they open. You can choose full height shutters or a cafe style that only covers the bottom half of your windows and leaves the top open for natural lighting inside. Tier on tier shutters cover the entire window from top to bottom with two sets of shutters so you can open the top only or the bottom only if you wish. You can also choose how your shutters open, such as a bi-fold door does or a double door. Plantation shutters also give you great lighting control as you can tilt the vanes at any angle or open or close them entirely. Another great quality of plantation shutters is that they work exceptionally well as a stand alone window treatment without the need to add layers.
