Window Blinds

Plantation Shutters


Designed for everyday living, our new collection of beautiful Wooden and Faux Wood blinds offers stylish and practical solutions for every room in the home. The collection includes an innovative Smart Privacy option for enhanced levels of privacy and light control.

With shutters you are in total control of the amount of light to let in your room. By simply moving the louvers in the panel and by opening or closing the panels, you can decide how much light to let in. Available in Wood Stain or Paint finishes.

Enjoy your patio, terrace or garden with family or friends, or simply as your own space, then a fully retractable fabric awning is a great addition to help control the Sun and Shade. Create your perfect outdoor living space with any of our retractable awnings.
