Wood shutters offer a warmth and natural beauty that can’t be found with just any window treatment. Heritance® hardwood shutters are made to last and are crafted using the dovetail method of construction. This method is one of the strongest carpentry techniques available, and it means your wood shutters will be beautiful fixtures in your home for years to come. They are available in over 35 different colors, or, if none of those colors appeal to you, you can also create custom colors. Additionally, there are several finishing techniques available, including burnished, glazed, and rustic, so you can create custom wood shutters that meet your style needs perfectly.

While wood shutters always look great, they may not be practical in every situation or room in your home. If you live in a humid area or need shutters for your kitchen or bathrooms, consider our Palm Beach™ shutters instead. These shutters are made from a UV-resistant Polysatin™ material that is strong and resistant to heat and humidity. They are guaranteed never to crack, fade, peel, or chip, regardless of moisture or temperature. Palm Beach™ shutters also have interior aluminum bracing at their major stress points, so they are strong and durable. Cleaning them is also easy, because they require only a mild soap and water. These shutters are available in several neutral shades that will flawlessly complement your existing decor.

We know it can be difficult to choose between the beauty of wood and strength of man-made materials, so now you don’t have to. With NewStyle® shutters from Hunter Douglas, you can get the best of both worlds. These hybrid shutters blend both materials to give you the best of both worlds. They can be painted in a solid color, or you can have them stained with our UltraGrain® finish to mimic the look of real wood. NewStyle® shutters also offer a low-luster finish, so these high-quality shutters are a more affordable option, and they will look great in your home for years to come.
