Plantation shutters and sliding barn doors let you have ultimate privacy. The plantation shutter louvers can be shifted to close completely. And bedroom shutters are installed with a frame to ensure there’s no gaps on the sides of the window. With sliding barn door shutters, you can slide the panels closed. But a slight gap on the sides of the window may be of concern depending on the way your sliding barn doors are mounted.

Light Control
