Traditional wood shutters have been around for a long time. With the classic shutter style first being seen in ancient Greece, these window coverings were used widely due to their outstanding durability and functionality. Eventually going out of style and then later becoming a staple once again in the 18th and 19th century in the southern states of America, these window treatments were used for light control, protection, and ventilation.
Now vastly improved from the plantation shutters used many years ago, these window treatments are still a widely used staple throughout the world. Versatile, durable, functional, and aesthetically appealing, wood shutters are the perfect addition to any type of décor. While ventilation is less of a functional need in current home design, many people still choose to use wood shutters for protection from bad weather. An excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor use, wood shutters are just as functional as they are stylish, making them the perfect addition to all homes.
Because our wood shutters are customizable, you can choose the stain colors, finishes, slat sizes, and how the shutters hang in your home. This customization process allows you to craft a window treatment that is specifically tailored to all of your needs without having to worry about sacrificing any of your wants. The customization of your wood shutters not only determines how your shutters will look in your home, but also how they will function.
Depending on the functional needs of the room in which they are being installed, shutters can be used as a permanent fixture that does not open from your window, a hinge joint mechanism, so you can fully open your window when you need more light or placed on half of your window to provide privacy without obscuring the whole view. These operating methods can also be combined for even more options for your windows.
