Types of Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a classic look that has been around for centuries. Whether you have a more traditional style or a more modern style, plantation shutters are a great window treatment option. The team at Spencer Carlson can help you discover the benefits of the real wood plantation shutters, the faux wood plantation shutters, and the hybrid plantation shutters from Hunter Douglas.

Wood Plantation Shutters

Hunter Douglas offers the Heritance® plantation shutters as the classic hardwood shutters. The Heritance shutters are created with Truemill® dovetail construction and real hardwood for increased durability and strength. These real hardwood shutters can be painted or stained in a variety of colors and the option of six different finishes, including glazed, classic distressed, glazed and burnished, heirloom distressed, rustic, and textured, to match any home’s décor. All of the Heritance® shutters are coated with Integra to create a durable color, high-luster finish, and a low maintenance texture.

With the endless color possibilities available, the Heritance® shutters are designed to give a classic feel in any room. These shutters work best in all rooms within your home. To avoid damage to the louvers, you should not use the wood plantation shutters in bathrooms or other high humidity and high moisture rooms.

Faux Wood Plantation Shutters

The Palm Beach™ plantation shutters from Hunter Douglas are designed from man-made UV resistant polysatin compounds. Along with the durable material, these faux wood shutters are crafted with interior resin blocks and aluminum bracing for optimal stability and added strength. Each of these shutters is also finished with DuraLux™ Finish, which is a scratch-resistant finish so there is minimal maintenance required. The faux wood shutters never require sanding, staining or painting, meaning the only upkeep is the occasional cleaning!

The Palm Beach™ shutters are great options for high-moisture environments, such as bathrooms or kitchens, because the water resistant compounds will never chip, crack, discolor, fade, warp or peel.

Hybrid Plantation Shutters

Hunter Douglas also offers a one-of-a-kind hybrid shutter that combines real wood with modern-day materials. The NewStyle® shutters have increased resistance and durability from the combination of real wood and man-made materials, while still maintaining the grain-like finish to resemble real hardwood shutters. The hybrid shutters are designed with the highest quality construction and Truemill® dovetail construction for increased joint strength and durability. The material and finish er can help you!
