Shutter Options and Parts In Gainesville

When deciding on which plantation shutters to buy in Gainesville, there are lots of shutter options that you can choose from. Whether it’s picking what frame style goes with your window best or what type of tilt rod to use, our design professionals will lay out the many options for shutters in Gainesville so you can match the shutters to your style.


Both Polywood faux wood shutters and Ovation hardwood shutters are available in several colors, paints, and stains.

Louver Sizes


Plantation shutter louvers come in three sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. While louver size is your choice, we’ve observed from decades of experience that you can let more light in with larger louvers to liven up the room – and have a larger view to look out from.

When furniture and fixtures are in front of your window, tilting the shutter louvers brings more light into the space. For that reason, larger louvers increase your view outside of your plantation shutters, Gainesville! 

  Louvers in 3 different sizes

Frame Styles

Thanks to a frame or hang strip, your plantation shutters in Gainesville can be installed on a window. Our design specialists offer custom mounting, even without a frame when needed. Browse through the available frame shutter styles. The Craftsman frame is only offered for Polywood® shutters. Ask a design expert for more options

Tilt Rods

Our most requested tilt rod is our traditional front mount tilt rod. This tilt rod style is the one most often associated with plantation shutters, and is a large part of their elegant look. Since the tilt rod hangs on the front of the shutters, opening your shutter louvers so light can come in and closing them completely for additional privacy is easy. 

You can also choose our rear-mounted tilt rod, which is a functional way to enjoy the appearance of a hidden tilt rod without the expense of an internally mounted gear mechanism. There’s a thin metal strip on the back corner of each louver that controls the movement of your plantation shutters
