What Are The Different Kinds of Indoor Shutters?01/20/2017Charlie Cole and Brady Parker Interior shutters can be constructed to cover the unique 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 more. Let's look at the different options available for indoor shutters, and how each one can benefit your home. Interior Plantation Shutters In Fort Myers, FL Photo credit: Jane Cunningham, Room Resolutions Plantation shutters in Fort Myers are the favored type of shutters because they bring in the light easily when open, save on energy when closed – and look beautiful both ways. The wide shutter slats or louvers 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 result in more view from your window and allow more light into your room. Attaching the louvers together, the stiles are the solid vertical members of the shutter panel, allowing for the movement of the louvers as one. We present you with four exceptional types of indoor plantation shutters that are custom built to fit your windows perfectly: Polywood®, Ovation® wood, Reclaimed Wood, and Studio Shutters. Engineered 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 yellow when the sun beats down on them because of our exclusive baked-on paint finish with UV stabilizers. Ovation shutters are built by hand with furniture-grade teak and come in an array of stains to match your existing wood trim and decor. Reclaimed Wood shutters are made from repurposed wood that was originally part of barns, fences, and other structures. Each piece of wood is unique, and together they create 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 classic style plantation shutter that carries 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 don't want to break the bank with their window treatments. Traditional Colonial Shutters If you want smaller louvers and a traditional look, colonial shutters are an older choice for Fort Myers. The sizes for colonial louvers 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 matters. Whereas colonial shutters have the 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. Are the differences in shutters a little bit clearer now?
