We recently installed some plantation shutters in Anderson SC. The home sat on the banks of Lake Hartwell in a nice high end neighborhood. Anderson, SC is part of our primary coverage zone so we work there fairly regularly.
The client purchased the plantation shutters from a local dealer for whom we have completed several installation projects. The shutters were solid wood and had a nice 3-1/2″ elliptical louver. We installed shutters in all three bedrooms in the home as well as the laundry room, master bathroom, and den.
We love the look of plantation shutters. They just add to a room. They can give you light control as well as privacy.
The video clip below (which is featured on our YouTube channel) was recorded while we were installing the shutters in the den. It was recorded using a Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone that was mounted on a tripod. We used an app called Framelapse that was set to take a picture every second. The app automatically stitches the pictures together to create the time lapse video. We then created the rest of the video using Window Movie Maker.
We hope you enjoy this video, and if you have questions about plantation shutters or any other type of window treatments, please contact us.
