4 1/2 inch shutters originated in the Southwest region of United States where homes have larger windows and panoramic ocean views. These shutters have a very elegant feel and will make a bold statement in any room.
Shutters with louvers of 4 1/2 inches wide are best used when they open to a stunning view. They create a visibility that’s 108% greater than the 2 1/2 inch California shutters. When the tilt-bar is set in the open position, it’s sometimes hard to remember that there is a shutter in front of you at all, as the view appears very clear. When the louvers are in the closed position, however, complete privacy can still be attained.
