Reasons to Invest in Shutters for Your Home

Interior shutters are popular because of their classic good looks and durability. In addition to looking great, they are easily matched to many floors or countertops to help tie a room together. They can also be mounted on the inside or the outside of a door or window for extra versatility. We’ve gathered several reasons why custom shutters are a good investment, and we’d love to share them with you.

Hunter Douglas Options

Hunter Douglas offers three exciting options for shutters. Whether you’re looking for natural wood, faux wood, or a hybrid, they have what you want.

Heritance® Hardwood Shutters

Fans of traditional, classic style will fall in love with Heritance® Hardwood Shutters. They are made from rapidly renewable basswood or poplar. Heritance® shutters are crafted with Truemill® dovetail construction. This is one of the strongest, most structurally sound methods for holding panels together. Some companies use a standard dowel and glue method, which is much less sturdy.

Hunter Douglas is committed to preserving natural resources and donates to the Arbor Day Foundation with every hardwood product purchase. When designing your shutters, you can customize the color or choose from more than 35 finishes. Integra™ Finish is applied in a multi-coat process to create a high level of luster.

Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters

These are the most durable shutter offered by Hunter Douglas. The Palm Beach Polysatin™ material is resistant to UV damage, moisture, and mildew. They come with a lifetime guarantee that they will not fade, warp, crack, or peel even when exposed to extreme sunlight or moisture. They are an ideal choice for hot, humid climates and spaces such as bathrooms. Consider these a worry-free investment that’ll you’ll enjoy for years to come.

NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters

The warm character of natural wood meets the strength of man-made engineering. NewStyle® shutters are created using a wood composite material that is co-extruded with a polypropylene coating to give your shutters durability that lasts. The Finetech® Finish process creates a low luster look to mimic the appearance of wood, and UltraGrain™ finish is available to replicate the look of the natural wood grain.
