Different Kinds of Shutters

Table of Contents

Shutters can be a beautiful, functional, highly customizable addition to any home or office and there are so many variations from which to choose…

  • Tried and true wood shutters have a long-standing reputation for providing a lovely rich, natural appeal. Additionally, they can be painted or stained to match a wide array of interior styles.
  • Vinyl shutters are a less expensive, lightweight alternative; and although they are not natural wood, they can be molded with a wood grain surface, so that you can still enjoy shutters with texture and depth.
  • Synthetic composites are an appealing shutter material due to their durability and virtually maintenance-free quality. This is a great shutter option for areas with more moisture, such as bathrooms.
  • Metal shutters, usually constructed from sturdy steel or aluminum, offer a contemporary feel.

Shutter styles vary as well. Plantation shutters, for instance, offer a wide spacing allowing for more light between slats. Café shutters cover only the bottom portion of the window, offering privacy as well as lots of natural lighting. There are also multi-tiered shutters providing the flexibility of opening at the top or bottom, arched shutters, shutters for French doors and more!
