Frequently asked questions

Between their beautiful look and their ability to insulate, plantation shutters add real value to your home. And when you choose The Shutters Department shutters, the value that you add will be exponentially more than the true price of the shutters!
Many people use the terms ‘blind’ and ‘shutter’ interchangeably. But in reality there are a few important differences.
Blinds are attached to the inside of the window recess or above it, while shutters are attached directly to the window frame itself. Along with the unique look, this makes plantation shutters sturdier, longer lasting, better at insulating, and safer (there are no cords or chains dangling from the window that kids or pets can get caught on). And while most people might choose blinds purely due to the price, with The Shutters Department you can enjoy all these perks at a similar - often lower - cost!
