Shutters, sometimes called “plantation shutters,” are a classic window treatment that offer a host of benefits while also looking beautiful. Shutters, by design, appear custom built for your home. They’re usually made from 100% natural hardwood, finished in high luster stains, and complement existing home fixtures like moldings, cabinets, and custom furniture. Custom shutters protect your home against extensive sunlight that might otherwise damage your furniture and offer an increased sense of privacy without cutting off your view to the outside world. Shutters also improve your home’s energy efficiency, so your central heating and cooling doesn’t have to work as hard to keep up with the changing weather. All around, shutters are a great window treatment suitable for any room that’s sure to last you a long time. At Don’s Drapery Service, we’re excited about our collection of Hunter Douglas shutters that even feature some of the only motorized shutter options on the market! This month on the blog, we want to go over a few of our favorite shutters and why they should be at the top of your list of consideration.
Enhance your living room or bedroom in the classic style of traditional hardwood shutters from Hunter Douglas. Heritance® Hardwood Shutters feature slats crafted from 100% genuine hardwood from sustainably managed forests all finished in a multi-coat, high luster stain. IntegraFinish™ preserves the look of your shutters so you can expect beautiful windows for years to come. Choose from over 35 available finishes as well as the option to customize your own to fit any existing fixtures in your home. Experience the difference Truemill® dovetail construction makes when your shutters remain tight no matter how often you open and close them thanks to interlocking shutter components and aluminum interior bracing.
These shutters feature the classic elegance of hardwood shutters but the durability of expert craftsmanship. Palm Beach™ shutters boast an ultra-durable Polysatin™ material designed to withstand extended exposure to sunshine and humidity. With DuraLux™ finishing processes, you’ll enjoy a beautiful matte sheen that won’t chip, warp, yellow, crack, or fade over time. This option is perfect for kitchens and bathrooms that are subject to extreme climates.
Palm Beach™ shutters are also one of the only shutters on the market to feature motorization. PowerView® Automation from Hunter Douglas transforms your shutters into smart technology. Control your shutters from anywhere in your home with the convenient PowerView® smartphone app or even the minimalistic Pebble® remote. With the app, you can quickly set the scene with custom lighting profiles. PowerView® even syncs with your location to provide adaptive lighting that responds to your local sunrise and sunset times, making it easier than ever to stick to a daily schedule fueled by natural light. Switch seamlessly between motorized and manual operation without fear of burning up the internal motors on your shutters.
