The privacy you need, the craftsmanship you deserve. Hunter Douglas’s selection of Palm Beach Shutters-also called plantation shutters are available in long-lasting materials and elevated finishes and, can be made to fit a variety of windows, including specialty shapes and sliding-glass doors. They can be used indoors, outdoors and are great for bathrooms.
Consider Palm Beach Shutters a worry-free investment that adds new dimension to your home’s décor. Polysatin material prevents warping, cracking, fading, chipping and peeling even when exposed to intense sunlight and moisture. Possibly the greatest advantage of Palm Beach shutters is how those wide, heavy louvers block out anything from the outdoors you don’t want coming in. That’s most often sunlight (so you can sleep), heat (so your home can stay cool), or the cold (in colder climates, like right here in Calgary). Palm Beach Shutters can operate with PowerView (tilt only) or manual front, centre or rear tilt bars.
NewStyle Composite Shutters are made from a mixture of genuine wood and synthetic polymers. Soil and dust resistant; FineTech finish provides a micro-smooth satin coating that protects from common spills-simple dusting with a soft dry cloth is all that’s required. They are built using crosslink construction to resist warping and bowing and are available in more colours than the Palm Beach Shutters.
Hunter Douglas NewStyle Hybrid Shutters offer the modern elegance of quality shutters at an economical price point. They’re ideal for those who want the prestige of shutters and the Hunter Douglas brand at a price that fits comfortably within a budget.
Selecting the right framing is another consideration in creating the perfect shutter look for your home. You should first decide on whether you wish to have an Inside Mount or an Outside Mount. The Z-Frame is used for Inside Mounts. It is the best choice for all Inside Mount installations as it gives a solid light-blocking frame inside the window and a decorative trim on outside, provided that your window has at least 1 1/2″ clearance.
If your window doesn’t have enough depth to fit a shutter inside the frame, you can still have the beauty of shutters. By building out the depth of the window with a variety of frames, any window can have the classic look of plantations.
Panel shutters come in many configurations — individually hinged, bi-fold panels, with and without T-posts (dividers), track systems comprised of one to many panels, and with a variety of frames for inside or outside mounting. Whatever the configuration, installation procedures are basically the same. The frame is assembled and fastened to the window at two points. Then the shutter panels are individually installed and racked, during which time frame attachment is completed.
Interior window shutters have changed over time yet remain a timeless long-lasting style for any home decor. Shutters are a smart window treatment, functional and aesthetically pleasing, fitting perfectly within any home. With their clean architectural lines and streamlined elegant look, shutters will add character and are the perfect finishing touch to make a statement in your home.
