Want to change out your window treatments in Detroit but not sure where to dive in? We’ve studied the difference between two of our most popular styles—custom plantation shutters
and horizontal blinds
Both have you covered for privacy and light control. But they have several differentiating features.
Plantation shutters have wide louvers. This premium window treatment is installed 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 managed by a visible or hidden tilt rod, the shutters can also open away from windows similar to a door.
They’re available as either:
- Wood plantation shutters
- Faux wood plantation shutters
- Vinyl plantation shutters

Blinds have thin slats created from metal, wood, fabric or similar materials. This cost-effective window treatment comes in a range of colors and finishes.
Window blinds are often controlled by a pull cord, although some styles are cordless.
They’re made 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.

Foreign-made shutters are often coated with paints high in volatile organic compounds, which can cause headaches and dizziness.

How do Shutters Compare to Blinds?
Interior shutters are an investment in your home and offer many benefits.
While window blinds are generally less expensive, you’ll need to replace them more frequently. They also don’t offer as much energy efficiency.
