Taking their name from a style popularised in America and the West Indies during the 18th and 19th centuries, plantation shutters were originally made from thin panels of marble. Originally, panels featured fixed louvres which helped provide light control, ventilation and a degree of protection against the Mediterranean environment. Today they are more commonly made from hardwood and MDF.

Shutters were popular among plantation owners, as they helped block out the afternoon sun, while allowing a steady breeze through rooms when the windows were open.
