Benefits of Custom Plantation Shutters

Custom shutters like our Hunter Douglas Plantation Shutters are one of the most versatile window treatments on the market today. They fit in perfectly with just about every décor style and color scheme. Best of all, when you choose a custom shutter, your options for color, direction and material are up to you. Here are just a few of the benefits of installing plantation shutters.

Classic Charm in Every Room

Plantation shutters are a perfect fit for every room in your home. Custom shutters are offered in genuine wood, faux wood and a hybrid material. Each product has a purpose. Genuine wood shutters look amazing and have that warm wood feeling. They look nice painted or stained to match your existing wood. Faux wood shutters are designed to last longer and hold up better in areas of heat or humidity. They are perfect for bathrooms, kitchens and other areas of the home where moisture may be a concern. Hybrid shutters are stronger than faux wood and look more like real wood. With three materials to choose from, shutters add charm to any room in your home.

Custom Shutters Fit Perfectly

No matter what size or shape window you have, Hunter Douglas shutters are custom made to order and fit perfectly. Some of the most amazing custom shutters are covering arches and half circles. Custom shutters work nicely on doors, sliding glass doors and French doors. Doorknobs can easily be cut out from the shutter or you can choose to hang your custom shutter within the doorframe. We professionally measure all your windows so you are guaranteed a perfect fit every time.

Plantation Shutters Are Versatile

Hunter Douglas Plantation Shutters can be mounted in a variety of ways to achieve the results your after. They can be mounted on the bottom only and topped with a custom valance to give you a café style. You can mount them with hinges on either side, on the top or on the bottom. This allows you to open your plantation shutter in whatever direction you want. They are perfect for covering imperfections in the window frame or fitting into tight spaces. Operating your plantation shutters is easy. Hunter Douglas operating systems for custom shutters include: a sliding track, folding panels or hinges.

Plantation Shutters Are Naturally Energy Efficient

One aspect that is often overlooked when it comes to plantation shutters is their natural energy efficient quality. When closed, plantation shutters are the most energy efficient window treatment available. They are designed to fit tightly in the window frame or cover the window completely. Because they are made of thick wood or faux wood material they protect your home from heat and cold air transfer.
