At Plantation Shutters, we’re often told by our customers that they would like to have additional shutters installed in their homes, however, some of their windows are situated at lofty heights or boast unconventional shapes. At first, they think those windows cannot be covered with plantation shutters.

We’re delighted to dispel this misconception by showcasing a range of projects we’ve successfully completed in challenging, hard-to-reach locations and for uniquely designed windows. No window is too high!

The Solutions:

Once you’ve got your stylish, custom-made shutters installed in your hard-to-reach location, another natural concern revolves around the operation of these shutters. Rest assured; we’ve got you covered. Here are two solutions you could consider to address this problem:

1. Remote Controlled Shutters

When dealing with extensive installations and windows perched beyond manual reach, our remote-controlled shutters are the perfect choice. This timesaving, innovative extra empowers you with seamless control, allowing you to effortlessly adjust your shutters with the simple push of a button. With this technology, no window is off-limits! Plantation Shutters’ intelligent design also stops the motors if anything blocks the louvre motion making this a safe choice for families with younger children who have inquisitive fingers.
