A window shutter is a furniture that covers a window. It consists of a frame of stiles and rails and within it can be louvers, solid panels, fabric, glass, etc. Shutters can be mounted to fit within the opening or to overlap the opening. The term window shutter includes both interior shutters, used on the inside of a house or building, and exterior shutters, used on the outside of a structure. On some styles of buildings, it is common to have shutters to cover the doors as well as the windows.

- Provides air circulation and ventilation
Open louver blades on plantation shutters allow air to circulate easily within your home, providing good ventilation. The added bonus with shutters is that there is no material to billow out into your room and knock ornaments or decorations over, and as the plantation shutters can be left shut even when the louvers are open your privacy can be maintained.
- It is durable
Shutters are hard-wearing and durable, and as they are often only opened when the windows need cleaning there are fewer issues of wear and tear. Louver blades can be easily replaced, and can also be adjusted from a small screw to tighten or loosen the louver operation to suit your personal preference, and reduce damage occurring through use.
- It is easy to clean
Plantation shutters can be easily maintained, with no need for professional cleaning. Each shutter can be dusted, and wiped clean with a damp cloth when necessary, to maintain their appearance. Dust can be removed to prevent it building up or being harbored in materials, helping those who have allergies such as asthma and need dust levels minimized.
