A: Try an online company, American Wallpaper and blinds. I purchased high-end blinds from them and they were much cheaper than the version in the store. I would suggest you go into home depot or lowes, and get the product number of the items you're interested
Pricing Plan for Home Depot Plantation Shutters and Lowes ...
It can sometimes be a little difficult to figure out exact costs when you buy plantation shutters, especially if you intend on comparing prices before you purchase them. For example, different retail outlets use different methods for measuring for shutters. Another problem with ordering shutters online, for example, thinking that it should be no problem to do so as you have ‘standard sized’ windows is that while the window itself may be standard sized the measurements need to also take into account factors such as the surrounding drywall and putty used to affix it in place may make the size alter slightly. It is for this reason, then that it is suggested you carefully take exact measurements if you are planning on installing expensive plantation shutters.
Lowes pricing for plantation shutters is based on grid measurements, as they offer preset standards for their shutters. Thus whether your window is 40 inches wide, or 46 inches wide you will be charged the same price for the shutter. They do make allowances for the actual size of the shutter, meaning that they will customize your order to the exact size you want it, however because of the pricing structure you will basically be charged the same price for a 46 inch shutter even if you ask them to customize it so that it is only 42 inches wide. In effect, due to the pricing in place you actually end up paying more for a 42 inch window that you would were you to order to exact dimensions from another store.
