What Are California Shutters?

California style shutters are popular interior window treatments made of wood or vinyl that allow light to enter through the movement of vertical louvres, which are the horizontal slats that run the middle to the inside of this window style. If a dividing mid rail is present, California shutters may have two top-and-bottom movable areas. They are commonly used for windows, but there are also California shutters for patio doors.

California shutters are frequently referred to as plantation shutters or window shutters. The size of the louvre is the primary distinction between California shutters and plantation shutters. Our California shutters have 2.5" louvres, while 3.5" louvres are used in plantation shutters. California shutters can be made from a wide range of materials and colours, with white being the most popular choice.

How Do California Blinds Work?

Our standard California window blinds open and close on hinges like a door, and are ideal for larger or small windows. The shutters' louvres can be tilted to any degree, which allows to:

  • perfectly set up the desired light amount entering the room, 
  • ideally control the privacy level,
  • control the air coming inside the house,
  • create a near blackout appearance in the room. 

We also carry bi-fold California style blinds, which are ideal for doors or oversized windows. These shutter types are mounted to tracks so that they slide folding to open and close effortlessly. They are also installed with hinges or can be fitted to open and close on two tracks as single panels on either side of your windows.

  • Why is it called California shutters?

    Shutters arrived in America at the time that Europeans began colonizing the continent. California received this window treatment around the middle of the 19th century. The name "California shutters" was given to this window decoration because locals believed shutters were invented in California.

  • Are shutter blinds worth the money?

    Yes! When you want to dress the window and maintain the shape of the window while gaining privacy, shutters are the ideal choice. They have a solid look which adds undisputed elegance to any window. Also the longevity of the shutter surpasses any blind or drapery, which fades or rips with time.

  • Are California shutters more expensive?

    Because California blinds are built to last, manufacturers use solid, premium materials like wood or vinyl. This makes the shutter more expensive than conventional window coverings as a result.

  • Which is better California shutters or zebra blinds?

    Which option is preferable depends greatly on your tastes and choice. Zebra blinds are the ideal option if you need higher privacy and UV protection, while California shutters are the best option if you want privacy while letting air into your rooms.

  • Can you install California shutters yourself?

    Shutter blind installation is as simple as putting flat-pack furniture together. Even if you have never done DIY before, it will not take long. All you will need is a screwdriver, a drill, a hammer, and a spirit level. When shutter frames are delivered, they will have all of the necessary hardware like hinges, hinge pins, magnets, and screws.

  • Do California shutters block light?

    In fact, shutters are one of the best window treatments for regulating light in a space. When fully closed, they will provide a very dark environment. Thick shutters' louvres are far more effective in blocking light than blinds and drapes.

  • Will shutter blinds make my house warmer?

    Window shutters are a great option for preventing heat transfer. The heat loss via a window can be reduced by more than 50% when the shutter panels and louvres are closed. This can go beyond 62% when used in conjunction with secondary glazing.

  • Do you need curtains with California shutters?

    Absolutely not, California shutters can be installed without curtains. In fact, many customers choose window shutters over curtains because of their minimal maintenance appeal in addition to their capacity to retain heat and their versatility to provide light and privacy at the same time.

  • How do you clean plastic California shutters?

    You can easily clean vinyl shutters by following these three easy steps:

    1. Use a microfiber cloth or duster to wipe away any dust from the slats.
    2. Brush the joints with a toothbrush to remove any small debris.
    3. To sorely clean the frame and louvres, use a moist towel.
  • How long do California shutters last?

    Shutters are an excellent and long-lasting addition to your house since they may last up to 20 years with proper upkeep.
