Are there any cons of plantation shutters? Given the design of them, they do block a lot more light. This isn’t a problem if you already have a lot of natural light coming into your home, but may not be suitable if your home is already quite dark. Unlike other window treatment, plantation shutters are always there. Unlike venetian blinds, for example, you can not raise them, they are always in your view line. This may be reason not to add plantation shutters to a window that boasts a spectacular view.
