Plantation Shutter Styles for Sash Windows?
We're very glad you asked! When choosing
wooden shutters for sash windows you should always cater this towards your window and specific needs. If you have quite short sash windows, we suggest going for Full height shutters
. For taller sashes you will have a few more options (think Georgian or Victorian sash window shutters). Full height is still a great choice, but why not mix it up with Tier-on-tier shutters
? These give you separate panel control, meaning you can hinge open the top and bottom sections independently.
If you think you can do without the top half, then Café style shutters
for sash windows are another great option. These normally go halfway up the window, meaning you have the privacy afforded to you by shutters, while still allowing plenty of light to shine through.

Victorian sash window shutters are a great addition to any traditionally inclined space, as are Georgian sash window shutters.
