What Are The Different Styles of Indoor Shutters?01/20/2017Spencer Madsen 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 take a look at the various options you have for interior shutters, and how each one can benefit your house. Interior Plantation Shutters In Boise, ID Photo credit: Jane Cunningham, Room Resolutions Plantation shutters in Boise are the preferred type of shutters because they allow in the light freely when open, block the most temperature when closed – and exude elegance both ways. The wide louvers are one of the aspects that set plantation shutters apart from other window treatments. The louvers range from 2.5” to 4.5” wide. These large slats result in a better view out your window and let more light into the home. Attaching each louver together, the stiles are the rigid vertical members of the shutter panel, that lets the louvers move as one. We present you with four exceptional types of indoor plantation shutters that are custom crafted to fit your windows just right: Polywood®, Ovation® wood, Reclaimed Wood, and Studio Shutters. Made 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 unique baked-on paint finish with UV stabilizers. Ovation shutters are handmade from furniture-grade teak and are offered in a host of stains to enhance your current wood trim and decor. Reclaimed Wood shutters are made from repurposed old wood that was at one time a part of fences, barns 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 has 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 With smaller louvers and a traditional look, colonial shutters are an older choice for Boise. The sizes for colonial louvers 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 makes a difference. Whereas colonial shutters are built with smaller louvers, Polywood and Ovation plantation shutters – with their energy efficiency and large louvers – are top pick. And don’t forget: larger louvers are a breeze to clean and adjust. Are the differences in shutters somewhat clearer now?
