We got a plantation shutter above the front door last year....

....Our upstairs windows have had them for many years, but the company from which we bought them (Next Day Blinds) is no longer in business. The successor company is 3 Day Blinds. Name notwithstanding, it will take a lot longer than three days. We ordered the shutter in early June and it was installed in early October; they blamed manufacturing delays in China due to reduced staffing during the pandemic, and I guess I can probably accept that rationale. My wife grumped about how long it took, but on the whole, I was pretty satisfied with the job they did and I would consider buying from them again.

One thing to note: 3 Day Blinds doesn't have stores or showrooms. Someone comes to your house to consult, so you have to consider whether you're comfortable with that in these circumstances.
