Platation ShuttersWe get asked this question a lot! A plantation shutter is a shutter with louvers wider than 1.25″ or 3.2 cm.  Most of the shutters sold by Budget Blinds franchisees exceed this louver width, so technically, we sell a lot of plantation shutters.  If you have a view that you really enjoy, opt for the widest louver available. Wider louvers preserve more of the view.
