What Are The Different Kinds of Indoor Shutters?

January 20, 2017

Interior shutters can be designed to cover all types and sizes of windows in your house. But not all interior shutters are the same. There are a number of different styles of shutter to to pick from, and different options within those categories with regards to construction, louver width, and beyond.

Let's talk about the various options you have for interior shutters, and how each one can benefit your house.

Plantation shutters in Boise are the favored type of shutters because they allow in the light easily when open, block the most temperature when closed – and exude elegance both ways.
The wide louvers are one of the features that set plantation shutters apart from other window treatments. The louver sizes range from 2.5” to 4.5” wide. These large slats result in more view from your window and let more light into the home. Attaching all the louvers together, the stiles are the rigid vertical parts of the shutter panel, allowing for the movement of the louvers as one.
We present you with four premium types of indoor plantation shutters that are custom crafted to fit your windows perfectly: Polywood®Ovation® woodReclaimed Wood, and Studio Shutters.
Polywood Shutters 
Engineered from a premium synthetic wood substitute, Polywood shutters won’t warp, split, crack, or chip. The beautiful paint on these indoor shutters won't fade or yellow when the sunlight touches them because of our exclusive paint that’s baked onto each shutter and infused with UV stabilizers.
Ovation wood shutters 
Ovation shutters are handmade from furniture-grade teak and are offered in a host of stains to enhance your current wood trim and furnishings.
 Reclaimed Wood Shutters
Reclaimed Wood shutters are made from repurposed old wood that was at one time a part of barns, fences, and other structures. Every wood louver is unique, and together they form not only a functional shutter, but a beautiful work of art on your windows.
The newest addition to the Sunburst family, Studio Shutters are a streamlined plantation shutter that conveys the same clean style as our Polywood shutters. With a few less options than other plantation shutters, Studio shutters are a perfect choice for homeowners who want to stay within a budget with their window coverings.

Traditional Colonial Shutters 

Traditional Colonial Shutters
With smaller louvers and a traditional look, colonial shutters are an older option for Boise.
Their louver sizes commonly range from 0.75” to 1.25”.
We won’t hide the fact that plantation shutters are preferred in Boise. When it comes to shutters that exude elegance and save energy, louver size matters. Whereas colonial shutters are built with smaller louvers, Polywood and Ovation plantation shutters – with their energy efficiency and large louvers – are your best choice. And don’t forget: larger louvers are a breeze to clean and adjust.
