Want to change out your window treatments in Greensboro but not sure where to dive in? We’ve compared the difference between two of our best-selling window treatments—custom plantation shutters
and horizontal blinds
Both have you covered for privacy and light control. But they have several distinguishing features.
Plantation shutters have wide louvers. This classic window treatment mounts on your window frame. They’re often seen in white, off-white or natural stain colors. Or matched to the color of your selection.
While the louvers are controlled by a visible or hidden tilt rod, the shutters can also open away from windows similar to a door.
These are either:
- Wood plantation shutters
- Faux wood plantation shutters
- Vinyl plantation shutters

Blinds have thin slats built from metal, wood, fabric or comparable materials. This economical window treatment comes in an assortment of colors and textures.
Window blinds are usually operated by a pull cord, although some models are cordless.
They’re created in styles like vertical blinds or horizontal blinds.
Wood horizontal blinds or faux wood horizontal blinds are sometimes referred to as plantation blinds because of their wide slats.

Plantation shutters have no cords, so you don’t have to worry if your family has little children or pets.

Foreign-made shutters are often stained with paints high in volatile organic compounds, which can cause headaches and dizziness.

How do Shutters Stand Up to Blinds?
Interior shutters are an investment in your home and offer a number of benefits.
While window blinds are generally less expensive, you’ll need to replace them more often. They also don’t offer as much energy efficiency.
