What Materials To Choose For Custom Shutters

If you are looking for a classic window treatment, plantation shutters are a timeless option. Hunter Douglas plantation shutters feature long-lasting quality and exquisite artistry. There are three options for materials to help you create a custom shutter perfectly suited for your home.

Heritance® Plantation Shutters are designed from authentic hardwood. These shutters will add a natural ambience to any room. There are six treatment possibilities to enhance the color and character of the wood. The options are textured, rustic, classic distressed, heirloom distressed, glazed, and glazed & burnished. Being able to customize the wood, allows for you to have complete control of the look you want to portray. Hunter Douglas’s wood shutters are built with extraordinary quality craftsmanship. The shutters are interlocked using the Truemill® dovetail construction method, which is the strongest technique in carpentry. The wood will also have a nice shine courtesy of the Integra™ finish. The finish is long-lasting and only minimal maintenance is needed for upkeep. If you are hesitant on purchasing wood shutters due to the destruction of the rainforest, Hunter Douglas uses part of the money earned on every Heritance® wood shutter purchase to contribute to the Arbor Day Foundation. This charitable donation not only gives back to nature, but should allow you to feel no guilt for your custom wood shutters.

Another material possible for your custom plantation shutters is a blend of wood and man-made resources. This combination allows the shutters to have the appearance of wood, while having the durability of synthetic materials. A Finetech® finish is then applied to the shutters to give it a shine, and only requires a cloth to dust off.  This hybrid blend of materials is a great option if you are worried about the endurance of the shutters but still want the look of real wood. If this mixture of resources sounds like what you are looking for in a window treatment, than the NewStyle® Plantation Shutters are the right choice for you.

The third available material used for plantation shutters is vinyl. Vinyl has the capability of withstanding a large amount of damage. These custom shutters are dent and scratch resistant, and require no retouching. This option is best suited for households with young children. A Polysatin™ finish is used in order for the shutters to be impervious to moisture. These shutters are most practical for those living in humid or damp environments. Within the vinyl is aluminum to ensure that the shutters have some resiliency and added strength. With your Hunter Douglas custom vinyl plantation shutters, it is guaranteed that they will last a lifetime without fading, cracking, warping, peeling, or chipping. If the vinyl shutters sound like the perfect fit for your home, than the Palm Beach Plantation Shutters is for you.
