Choosing Materials for Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a stylish addition for any home. Hunter Douglas offers outstanding quality window treatments that will last a lifetime. The plantation shutters are available in three materials to ensure that they complement your home’s décor. Each material is unique and has different benefits, so it’s important to find the material that fits your home’s needs as well.

Vinyl is one of the options for plantation shutters; it is used in the Palm Beach™ Plantation Shutters. This shutter is ideal for households with young children or pets, as the window treatments are dent and scratch resistant. You do not have to worry about any damage occurring and they will never need to be touched up. The shutters also have a compound applied to make them impervious to moisture damage. The Polysatin™ mixture is perfectly suited for anyone who lives in an environment that is damp or humid. The inside of the shutters are composed of aluminum to increase the strength and durability of the vinyl material. Hunter Douglas has a promise that their vinyl shutters will last a lifetime without experiencing any warping, cracking, peeling, fading, or chipping.

NewStyle® Plantation Shutters are crafted with a hybrid blend of wood and man-made resources. The mixture of materials combines the staying power of synthetic materials while having the appearance of wood. The Finetech® finish applied gives the shutters a polished, glossy exterior that allows for easy upkeep. Only a cloth is required to simply dust them off. This low maintenance window treatment is ideal for those who like the look of real wood but want something more resilient.

If you desire shutters made out of authentic hardwood, the Heritance® Plantation Shutters are the right option for you. This window treatment is perfect to convey a natural or warm energy to any room. To further enhance the color and character of the wood, there are six treatments available. The choices are rustic, textured, classic distressed, heirloom distressed, glazed, and glazed & burnished. This allows you to further customize the shutters to fit your home’s design. The strongest carpentry technique is used to construct the wood plantation shutters. The Truemill® dovetail method is used to ensure that the shutters are sturdy and durable. The Integra™ finish is applied to give the wood some shine that requires little maintenance. Hunter Douglas donates a portion of the profits made from Heritance® Plantation Shutters to the Arbor Day Foundation, which helps to preserve the rainforest. If the ecological impact turned you away from the wood shutters, just remember that every purchase gives back to nature. The wood shutters are great for homes that want a window treatment with lots of charm.
