Another Use for Plantation Shutters

It turns out that plantation shutters are not only great for windows. Believe it or not, they are also perfect for water heaters! We recently remodeled our laundry room and had everything look nice and finished except for the hot water heater in the corner which stuck out like an eyesore. After shopping around for different bi-fold partitions and not finding anything that either worked for us or was in our price range, we decided to take a look at plantation shutters. We had a few large plantation shutter left over from a previous job that were the proper dimensions to cover the exposed area on the water heater. After hinging them together, they created a stylish stand alone partition that conceals the hot water heater and fits with the décor of the laundry room. Who would of imagined that plantation shutters look great in front of hot water heaters as well as windows!!
