Which Material is Right for Your Shutters?

Shutters are a great window covering for those wanting authentic character throughout their home. The plantation style look is truly timeless. Hunter Douglas offers three distinct styles of shutters made from different materials to accommodate different homes and environments. While they are all beautiful in design, selecting the shutter with the right function can be less obvious. AAA Blind and Shade Factory offers these pointers on choosing a shutter to fit your space.

Palm Beach™ shutters are a vinyl shutter made with a UV resistant Polysatin™ compound. This feature ensures that they never crack, warp, or discolor, backed by the Palm Beach™ Promise™ so you can enjoy your shutters for a lifetime. The Polysatin™ coating also enables this window treatment to withstand intense heat and humidity, perfect for homes that are in primarily warm and wet climates. A DuraLux™ finish further guards the appearance of these shutters making them dent and scratch resistant and never needing maintenance like painting or sanding. They boast even more durability with resin blocks and interior aluminum at key stress points. For convenient operation, Lantana™ Hidden Gear is a system available with Palm Beach™ for one-touch control. Simply adjust one louver slat and the rest follow suit. Light colored design options make this shutter ideal for brightening up any space.

For a hybrid shutter option with the character of wood, NewStyle® shutters are ideal. This shutter is made from modern, man-made components that provide the strength and durability that a wood shutter would. Many features make this a fantastic alternative for a real wood shutter. A Finetech® coating mimics the warmth and beauty of authentic, solid wood, while also making cleaning a breeze with easy, minimal dusting. UltraGrain® further accentuates the wood look with a grain-like finish. NewStyle® is also a window treatment to withstand the heat and humidity, ideal for windows that receive a lot of sun, or bathroom windows. With new modern color and frame selections, NewStyle® is sure to be a stunning plantation shutter for your home.

For genuine hardwood plantation shutters, look no further than Heritance®. Natural, seasoned wood brings warm, natural tones into your home, creating an inviting space. This look is great to complement a range of décor styles. To further enhance the hardwood texture, six artisan techniques can be employed to bring you a unique wood look. Heritance® is a durable option in window coverings, not only due to its authentic hardwood but its construction. Truemill® is made using dovetail construction, one of the oldest and strongest methods of joining wood. This guarantees you have a plantation shutter that will withstand the test of time in your home for many years to come. For more longevity, an Integra™ coating can be used to give your shutter a high-luster finish while increasing the lifespan of the appearance of the wood. Available in a wide range of paint and stain options, you are sure to find a Heritance® to suit your living space.
