January 20, 2017

Indoor shutters can be designed for the unique windows in your house. But not all interior shutters are the same. There are a few different kinds of shutter to available, and options within those styles with regards to construction, louver width, and more.

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

Plantation shutters in Bluff City are the most desired type of shutters because they bring in the light readily when open, block the most temperature when closed – and look beautiful both ways.
The wide louvers, or shutter slats, are one of the attributes that make plantation shutters stand out from other window treatments. The louver sizes range from 2.5” to 4.5” wide. These larger slats give you a greater view from your window and allow more light into the home. Connecting all the louvers together, the stiles are the rigid vertical pieces of the shutter panel, that lets the louvers move as one.
We provide four exceptional types of indoor plantation shutters that are custom crafted to fit your windows just right: Polywood®Ovation® woodReclaimed Wood, and Studio Shutters.
Polywood Shutters 
Engineered from a premium synthetic wood substitute, Polywood shutters won’t crack, split, warp, or chip. The premium paint color on these indoor shutters won't lose their vibrancy when the sun beats down on them because of our exclusive 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 host of stains to complement your present wood trim and furniture.
 Reclaimed Wood Shutters
Reclaimed Wood shutters are crafted from repurposed old wood that was at one time a part of barns, fences, and other structures. Every wood louver is unique, and together they form not only a functional shutter, but a beautiful work of art on your windows.
The newest addition to the Sunburst line, Studio Shutters are a stripped-down plantation shutter that carries the same classic look as our Polywood shutters. With a few less add-ons than other plantation shutters, Studio shutters are a great choice for homeowners who want to stay within a budget with their window coverings.

Traditional Colonial Shutters 

Traditional Colonial Shutters
With the traditional look of smaller louvers, colonial shutters are an older choice for Bluff City.
The sizes for colonial louvers commonly range from 0.75” to 1.25”.
Between us, plantation shutters are the preferred shutters in Bluff City. When you want shutters that add charm and save energy, louver size matters. Whereas colonial shutters are made with smaller louvers, Polywood and Ovation plantation shutters – which are built for beauty and energy efficiency – are top pick. And remember: larger louvers are a breeze to clean and adjust.
