Plantation Shutters

Advantage Shutters offers locally manufactured custom wood interior shutters to customers in Nashville, Williamson County and the surrounding Middle Tennessee areas. We’ve been in the business of designing and custom handcrafting high-quality wooden interior plantation shutters for thousands of homes across Nashville and Middle TN for over 30 years.

Our interior plantation shutters are made from the finest wood materials available, Basswood and Poplar, by quality craftsmen, for those who appreciate fine quality and dependable service. All our wooden interior shutters are built in the USA, right here in Middle Tennessee, custom fitted for each individual window opening.  Our custom wood shutters can be painted or stained.  We offer a range of standard white paint colors as part of your sq. footage pricing as well as installation with precision by our trusted professional employees.  A custom color match to your paint or stain sample is provided as an option to our standard paint color selection.  There is a small upcharge fee to cover our costs associated with this service but it is well worth the fee to get a color to match your custom paint or stain finish.

Plantation Shutters: Our Process

We begin the process with a complimentary no-obligation appointment with you to show you our custom shutter sample styles, Tradition, Classic or Premium Custom Plantation Shutters with louver sizes of 2 ½”, 3 ½” or 4 ½” and hinge finishes.  We will discuss the options available to you beyond our standard shutter units.  The configuration, number of panels per shutter unit and hinge location, will be determined with your input.  The mounting of the shutters will depend on the depth of your window casing, your style of window and if you have a tilt in window feature on your windows that you want to remain functional.

With a tilt in feature on your windows, the shutter frame needs to be clear of the window opening to allow clearance for the window to tilt into the room.  An inside mounted frame will not allow the window to tilt into the room and an outside mount, on the first flat point of the trim, closest to the window opening, will allow the window unit to clear the shutter frame when the panels are in the open position.

Your shutters will not install flush with your wall or trim unless you have a depth of no less than 4 or 5 inches in your casement.  A custom wood shutter frame will project out from the window opening approximately 2 ½”.  So both an inside mounted shutter and outside mounted shutter will most likely project beyond the trim of your window.  The four-sided standard framing of our shutters gives a very professional and clean line to your custom wood interior shutters.  We are able, with our shutter samples, to place the sample in your opening to show you the actual projection and how the shutter will mount most efficiently.
