We have many window treatments to get and my husband is saying that he would like to make plantation shutters. I haven't really seen them in a house other than in a bathroom years ago. Wondering if people like them, the pros and cons. Would appreciate seeing pictures anyone can share of what theirs look like. Also, we have a combination of white woodwork and darker oak stained on the main floor. The basement is all stained woodwork. Would it look funny from the outside if the shutters were white main floor and dark below? Actually in basement I think I might go with wooden blinds? Suggestions, pictures, etc. appreciated. I'll attach some pics to help you give me advice. The larger windows are 8' across. Back of house main floor I don't plan to use blinds or shutters except on the dining rm deck windows.
