Older homes, plantation shutters, wood blinds
There's a thread going on the home decorating forum about plantation shutters, though I thought I'd try here as well.
Has anyone here installed plantation-style shutters in their old home? I'm partial to natural materials whenever possible, though some are saying the polywood is less heavy, less expensive than the natural wood. Your thoughts?
Also, leaning toward wood blinds in some rooms. If you own them, do you have wide slates or thin? Did you try to match the wood trim on your windows, or complement your hardwood floors?
Any suggestions on size, materials, making color choices here would be appreciated.
