What is Considered 'Traditional' for Shutter Louver Width
I'm going for a traditional look for window shutters in my home, and I'm confused about shutter louver width as it relates to design style. With the research I've done so far, it appears that 1 1/4" is considered traditional, while 1 7/8" and up are classified as plantation style, which of course, is more contemporary.
I want to get the shutters custom matched to the woodwork in our home, and Shutter Classic does that, however, their narrowest width is 1 7/8". If I go with the 1 7/8", I'm concerned with whether or not the shutters will look too contemporary. A contemporary look will not go with the style of the rest of the home.
So, my question is: What is the widest shutter louver width that can still be considered traditional? And, if I need to go narrower than 1 7/8" to achieve a traditional look, then I'm in search of an online shutter company that does custom paint matching at a good price.
Thanks so much for any thoughts,
