Plantation Shutters

A Timeless Design Favorite

Custom plantation shutters are consistently one of the most popular window treatments that complement both modern and traditional aesthetics. A timeless interior design choice that never falls out of style, especially in Houston and throughout Texas, plantation shutters are the only window covering that are considered an architectural addition and therefore increases the value of your home.

Plantation shutters are well-loved among our interior designer, homeowner, and architect clients alike for their ability to beautifully and precisely control light and privacy to create the perfect ambience in any room at any time of day. When closed, shutters provide 100% privacy and when complete privacy is not of concern, louvers tilt with ease to filter the perfect amount of sunlight.


The Shade Shop’s custom interior plantation shutters are handcrafted in the USA from 100% North American Basswood, chosen for its durability, consistent coloring and natural grains throughout, and ideal texture for painting or staining. This premium basswood is an incredibly lightweight hardwood that naturally resists moisture and prevents warping, twisting, or bowing. Its light weight also allows for larger panel sizes, which is the increasingly popular design aesthetic.

Our owner makes a conscious effort to support forestry practices that are environmentally-responsible. To ensure a long-lasting supply of the highest-quality hardwood, our wood is sourced from forests that practice sustained-yield forest management, meaning nearly twice as much hardwood grows as is harvested each year.


Our plantation shutters are available in an extensive selection of standard paint or stain colors, with the additional option of custom color-matching to the paint or stain color of your window trim, cabinets, or any other design elements so that your shutters blend seamlessly with your existing décor.

With a meticulous attention to detail and strict adherence to quality standards, our shutter craftsmen skillfully apply the vibrant stain or paint of your choosing. Each painted or stained shutter undergoes a five-step finishing process and is carefully inspected at each stage for uniformity of coverage and color.

High-End Designer Options

Our plantation shutters are available in louver sizes of 1 7/8”, 2 ½”, 3 ½”, or 4 ½”. For a more classic aesthetic, we also offer traditional shutters in 1 ¼”-wide louvers. Operable with either a traditional or hidden tilt rod, our shutters can be custom designed to fit any traditional or specialty shape windows (including arched or angled windows), French doors, sliding glass doors, and more. From single panel shutters to double-hung panels to bi-folding along a track system, the options for customization are endless.
