Danmer's plantation style shutters have decorated homes throughout California for over 40 years. They're considered a more contemporary window treatment than traditional narrow louver shutters.
We use the very highest grade USA made Basswood and PHD (Premier Hardwood) as well as genuine Themalite to make our Custom Plantation Shutters match your décor and your budget.
Traditional louvered window shutters typically have smaller louvers from 1 1/4" up to 1 7/8". Danmer’s contemporary our plantation shutters have wider louvers, including widths from 2 ½" to 3½” to 4½".

A Bit of Plantation Shutter History
The term Plantation Shutters come from the old plantations established in the 18th century throughout the Southern United States. These homes featured wider wooden louvers than traditional narrow shutter louvers typically found on Shutters in the North Eastern region of the country. The narrower louvers in the Northern U.S. were meant to retain more heat in the houses which were a lot colder in theose Northern climates.
Later during California’s population boom in the 1950's, since heat retention in the house was not an issue, homeowners wanted a better view with bigger windows. Manufacturers built thousands of homes with large windows and regularly used wide louvered interior plantation shutters to cover them.
Cafe-style Plantation Shutters
There are a few more things to love about our contemporary plantation shutters vs traditional narrow louvers.
These shutters fit right in with many interior design themes and come in a range of custom colors and stains to match your home décor goals. They are easy to open, easy to clean, durable, and look great from the outside as well.
Wider louvers provide the best view outside while giving you optimal light control and privacy in your home. When closed, the shutters provide complete privacy and block out sunlight and heat offering temperature control.
Also, Danmer’s elliptical shaped louvers are stronger than other company’s flat shaped louver shutters Elliptical louvers will resist sagging over time.
