What Are The Different Kinds of Indoor Shutters?

January 20, 2017

Indoor shutters can be designed to cover the unique windows in your home. 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 more.

Let's look at the different options available for indoor shutters, and how each one can benefit your home.

Plantation shutters in Fort Myers are the preferred type of shutters because they bring in the light easily when open, save on energy when closed – and emanate beauty both ways.
The wide louvers, or shutter slats, are one of the attributes that differentiate plantation shutters from other window treatments. The louvers range from 2.5” to 4.5” wide. The large louvers give you a better view out your window and allow more light into your room. Attaching the louvers together, the stiles are the rigid vertical parts of the shutter panel, allowing for the movement of the louvers in unison.
We present you with four exceptional types of indoor plantation shutters that are custom built to fit your windows perfectly: Polywood®Ovation® woodReclaimed Wood, and Studio Shutters.
Polywood Shutters 
Made from a premium synthetic wood substitute, Polywood shutters won’t warp, split, crack, or chip. The premium paint color on these indoor shutters won’t fade or change when the sun beats down on them because of our unique paint that’s baked onto each shutter and infused with UV stabilizers.
Ovation wood shutters 
Ovation shutters are handmade from furniture-grade teak and come in a variety of stains to enhance your current wood trim and furnishings.
 Reclaimed Wood Shutters
Reclaimed Wood shutters are made from repurposed wood that was once a part of barns, fences, and other structures. Each piece of wood is unique, and together they form a shutter that’s not only functional, but also a modern work of art for your windows.
The newest addition to the Sunburst family, Studio Shutters are a builder-grade plantation shutter that carries the same clean look as our Polywood shutters. With a few less add-ons than other plantation shutters, Studio shutters are a perfect choice for homeowners who don't want to break the bank with their window treatments.

Traditional Colonial Shutters 

Traditional Colonial Shutters
With smaller louvers and a traditional look, colonial shutters are an older choice for Fort Myers.
Their louver sizes typically range from 0.75” to 1.25”.
Between us, plantation shutters are the preferred type of shutter in Fort Myers. When you want shutters that exude charm and are energy efficient, louver size makes a difference. Whereas colonial shutters are made with smaller louvers, Polywood and Ovation plantation shutters – with their energy efficiency and large louvers – are your top choice. And don’t forget: larger louvers are a piece of cake to clean and adjust.
