Kitchen Plantation Shutters



Choose plantation shutters made from materials that are resistant to moisture, heat, and stains. Vinyl or composite shutters are popular choices for kitchens as they are durable and easy to clean. Avoid materials that may warp or get damaged when exposed to moisture or high temperatures.


Kitchens often require proper ventilation to dissipate cooking odors and moisture. Consider plantation shutters that allow for airflow when desired. Adjustable louvers or shutters that can be partially opened enable better ventilation while maintaining privacy.

Style and Aesthetics

Select plantation shutters that complement the overall style and decor of your kitchen. Consider the color, finish, and hardware options that coordinate with the existing design elements. Choose a type that enhances the visual appeal of your kitchen.

Light Control

Consider how much natural light you want to allow into your kitchen. Plantation shutters with adjustable louvers provide flexibility in controlling the amount of light entering the space. Opt for shutters with larger louvers if you prefer more light and smaller louvers if you want better light control and privacy.

Full Height Shutters

Full-height shutters are one of our most popular and adaptable installation styles, covering the entire height of the window. The shutters function as two independent panels on each side of the window that can be operated independently. This means you can choose whether to let light in by opening the panels or add privacy by completely closing them.

They are the perfect option for persons whose windows look out onto streets or other public spaces where curious people might disturb their privacy because of their versatility.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of using shutters in your kitchen?

Shutters allow you to control how much natural light enters your kitchen. Like any other window treatment, shutters require regular maintenance to remove dust that accumulates on the panels. However, they are much easier to clean than blinds or curtains. In addition, when you close and lower your shutters, you can reduce glare from the afternoon sun while controlling extreme room temperatures.

What materials are best for the kitchen?

You will spend a lot of time in your kitchen cooking and baking. Unfortunately, this means that this area of your home can quickly become disorganized. Splashes, spills, and splatters are far more common in the kitchen than in any other room of the house.

When selecting kitchen shutters, choose a material that is simple to clean. For example, faux wood shutters can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Consider bi-folding panels to avoid water damage if your shutters are installed on a window behind your kitchen sink.

Which kitchen shutter style is best?

Before deciding on a specific shutter style, you should consider your needs. For example, do you want more privacy or to conceal an unsightly obstruction?

Full-height style shutters not only provide complete privacy for your space, but they also block out as much natural light as necessary. Full-height shutters may also include a mid-rail, allowing the user to operate the upper and lower louvers independently.

Another option is tier-on-tier shutters, which divide the panels and allow the upper and lower levels of the shutter to swing open and close separately.

How do you know which color will look best in your kitchen?

Most people are surprised to learn how difficult it can be to select the right color shutters for your kitchen. A classic white is always popular among homeowners because it complements painted and stained cabinetry. If you want to make a bold statement with your shutters by adding a pop of color, our experts at The Blinds Side can provide an in-home interior design consultation to find the perfect style to complement your kitchen space.
