Plantation shutters in Las Vegas are the most desired type of shutters because they bring in the light readily when open, save on energy when closed – and emanate beauty either way.
The wide louvers are one of the aspects that differentiate plantation shutters from other window treatments. You can choose louvers from 2.5” to 4.5” wide. The large louvers give you a better view out your window and let more light into your room. Attaching each louver together, the stiles are the rigid vertical members of the shutter panel, allowing for the movement of the louvers in unison.
We present you with four superior types of indoor plantation shutters that are custom built to fit your windows perfectly: Polywood®Ovation® woodReclaimed Wood, and Studio Shutters.
Polywood Shutters 
Fashioned from a premium synthetic wood substitute, Polywood shutters won’t crack, split, warp, or chip. The superior colors on these indoor shutters won't lose their vibrancy when the sunlight touches them because of our exclusive baked-on paint finish with UV stabilizers.
Ovation wood shutters 
Ovation shutters are handmade from furniture-grade teak and come in an array of stains to enhance your current furniture and decor.
 Reclaimed Wood Shutters
Reclaimed Wood shutters are crafted from repurposed old wood that was once a part of barns, fences, and other structures. Each wood louver is unique, and together they create a shutter that’s not only functional, but also a unique work of art for your windows.
The newest addition to the Sunburst family, Studio Shutters are a builder-grade plantation shutter that conveys the same clean style as our Polywood shutters. With a few less options than other plantation shutters, Studio shutters are a beautiful choice for homeowners who want to stay within a budget with their window treatments.

Traditional Colonial Shutters

With smaller louvers and a traditional look, colonial shutters are an older choice for Las Vegas.
The sizes for colonial louvers typically range from 0.75” to 1.25”.
We won’t hide the fact that plantation shutters are the preferred type of shutter in Las Vegas. If you’re looking for shutters that add beauty and reduce your energy bills, louver size is key. Whereas colonial shutters have the smaller louvers, Polywood and Ovation plantation shutters – with their larger louvers and energy efficiency – are your top choice. And note: larger louvers are a piece of cake to clean and adjust.
