There are different kinds of shutters to consider for your next project, all of which we can provide for you. Traditional shutters are not the same as plantation shutters. They have narrow louvers and are usually found in the New England region states. While this style is still available, it is less common due to the amount of light they restrict from entering the home. Today, the focus is on bringing style and efficiency to homes while still allowing for maximum sunlight when shutters are open. Spanish shutters became prevalent in Southern plantation homes because they sport wide louvers that allow for more sunlight while still providing insulation from heat and cold. Today, both styles are available because interior shutters come in a variety of different styles and louver sizes. The most popular louver size today is 2-1/2" , however louvers can be as small as 1-7/8" and go up to as large as 5" depending on your window depth. Our shutters come in wood or faux-wood, making them even more versitile for your space. While wood is more traditional, faux-wood are highly moisture resistant, making them a perfect match for porches, bathrooms, and other wet or damp areas. The possibilities are endless and our on-staff designers are equipped with samples and demo kits to help you pick the perfect shutters for your home.
