Well, the answer may lie with the super bright white poly shutter outfitted with a hidden tilt bar. Because this is a poly shutter, it has a "sheen" when coupled with the super bright white color effectively creates a modern look. Think bright white poly clad cabinets in a modern kitchen.
Additionally, by removing the standard tilt bar from the center and front of the shutter panels, the look becomes cleaner and more modern. Also, if possible, choosing a 4 1/2" louver will further clean up the look and open up your modern space.
These slight design nuances help make plantation shutters fit your modern aesthetic while providing the great longevity, timeliness, energy efficiency, and versatility of plantation shutters.
