Shutters today are typically fabricated from wood, PVC or vinyl wrapped, combining the look of wood with the resilience and durability of man-made materials. The PVC and vinyl wrapped shutters, while offering a small price advantage, come in shades of white and off-white. Wood shutters can be painted any decorative color and finish from matte to satin to high-gloss. Or, they can be stained. The Hunter Douglas Collection offers a selection of six artisan techniques that enhance the inherent character and color of the genuine hardwood. Techniques available are: Glazed, Glazed & Burnished, Classic Distressed, Heirloom Distressed, Rustic and Textured.
Louver sizes are 2 1/2, 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 inch louvers. Options are the use of fixed mid-rails, arched panels, sunbursts, bi-fold and bi-pass options. Decorative frame options are available to aid with the right mounting technique and style desired.
Shutters add an architectural element to your room and since they are custom made to the size of your specific window, they offer a good return on your investment when it comes to the resale of your home.

And, theyprovide good insulation against the heat and cold. They are very easy to maintain and clean and will provide years of lasting beauty.
