Want to change out your window treatments in Columbus but not sure where to dive in? We’ve examined the difference between two of our most popular styles—custom plantation shutters
and horizontal blinds
Both have your home covered for privacy and light control. But they have several distinguishing features.
Plantation shutters have wide louvers. This classic window treatment mounts on your window frame. They’re usually seen in white, off-white or natural stain colors. Or matched to the color of your selection.
While the louvers are managed 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 thin slats made from metal, wood, fabric or similar materials. This economical window treatment comes in an assortment of colors and materials.
Window blinds are frequently operated by a pull cord, although some models 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.
