Perhaps you love the look of plantation shutters, but like many of us, are living on a budget. In this case, we have a suggestion - consider real wood stained blinds with a 2 1/2" slat. The larger slat matches the view through provided by shutters with 2 1/2" louvers and the stain provides a higher end design look.
The larger view through, coupled with the rich look of stain, creates a look which rivals the elegance of shutters, except done on a budget. Of course, plantation shutters are in a league of their own with thicker louvers and their panel door look. However, when you consider that most people choose white shutters, the option to have a rich stained look in a 2 1/2" wood blind maximizes value toward a shutter-like look - but on a wood blind budget.
One last thing to remember, your design look will be stand alone - meaning that the stained wood blinds with the 2 1/2" louvers will be on display in your home and there will be no shutters in sight with which to compare. As such, the high-end elegance of your wood blind design choice will be seen for the exception look and beauty which it represents - and only you will know how much money your saved.
