Plantation shutters images have several components, including a frame, upper and lower rails, slats and tilt bar. The lever is attached to the shutters and moves up and down to open or close the shutters. The jalousies vary in size from 2 ½ to 4 ½ inches wide, depending on the particular style.
A variety of materials can be used to create plantation shutters images. They include plastic vinyl, medium density fiberboard (MDF), wood or synthetic materials. Plastic vinyl or MDF planting shutters are the cheapest options, but they cannot be painted or dyed. Wood planting shutters are expensive but can be created in a variety of painted or colored colors. Jalousies made of synthetic material are a mid-cost option and can only be painted. Depending on the particular appearance you go for, planting shutters can be mounted either inside or outside the window frame. Inside the mounting gaps will result in a lower cost, as less material is used to create gaps. Mounting shutters outside the window frame adds about 3 inches to the height and width of planting shutters.
