plantation shutters


Plantation shutters originated in the southeast U.S. and are the epitome of classic southern charm. They are the perfect upgrade for your Southwest Florida home.

These shutters have widely spaced slats allowing more light to enter a room. They’re a flexible style of shutter, as you can use multiple shutters for a single window, giving you the option to close all or some of the slats. They are great for temperature regulation, allowing you to adjust the amount of sunlight entering your home.


Café-style shutters cover just a part of the window, typically the bottom. They make a beautiful statement in any room but are particularly popular in well-exposed rooms like the kitchen or living room. Cafe-style shutters allow you to enjoy open windows while maintaining a degree of privacy. 

The name comes from the style of shutters that French cafés used to provide privacy for patrons while allowing natural light to flow in. It is the cafe-style shutter which gave rise to tier-on-tier shutters which are becoming increasingly popular.

multi-tier shutters


Multi-tier shutters (also called tier-on-tier shutters) likely found their inspiration from café shutters. They are interior shutters, and they have a very similar design and function to café shutters. Rather than an all-or-nothing effect, multi-tier shutters give you flexibility to keep some areas of a window covered and private, and other areas can be left open.

These shutters are ideal for bay windows and other large areas. If you are looking for versatile shutters that allow you to open one side and keep another side closed, these are the shutters for you!


Shutters are a popular choice for both interior and exterior French doors. At Blind Spot Etc. we specifically tailor your shutters to fit your French doors and to match the aesthetic and interior dècor of your home.

French door shutters look better than curtains and they also allow you to adjust just how much light shines into the room. They are the perfect choice to provide privacy for interior rooms and exterior doors.
