Here is a great question as you consider the design parameters of your plantation shutter project. Should you choose stained plantation shutters? This a tough question for many. The decision generally revolves around the fact that stained shutters do cost a bit more than standard white painted shutters. Additionally, stained shutters require a specific design plan which makes many consumers nervous about making an expensive mistake.
In our experience, most consumers play it safe and go with the clean look of white plantation shutters. But, maybe you should ask - Do you want your shutters stained to match your floors, furniture or cabinetry? In the many projects we have completed for clients where they choose a stained shutter to match their floors, furniture or cabinetry - we can honesty say that the results have been stunning. This is helped by the fact that stained shutters generally utilize a premium wood, so that the natural beauty of the wood is highlighted by the stain.
The most common design application for stained shutters is in larger estate type homes with a Tuscany decor or where a stained shutter is used to match or complement wood floors.
