Types of Plantation Shutters

Hunter Douglas offers a variety of high quality, dependable, and gorgeous plantation shutters. Each type offers both beautiful craftsmanship and the best light blocking ability when it comes to window treatments. In this article we are going to go over all of the amazing types of plantation shutters that Hunter Douglas has to offer so you can decide which style fits best for your home.

Hardwood Shutters

Nothing gives a room that classic, organic glowing feeling like real hardwood. Shutters made from real wood are built structurally as sturdy and reliable as possible. Not only are they great at blocking light and providing privacy, they also go beautifully in any household. Hardwood shutters are versatile, in that they come in a variety of woods and finishes. On top of that you can also paint them just about any color to match whatever style you are going for. Heritance® shutters are the Hunter Douglas hardwood option.

Faux Wood Shutters

Hardwood shutters are great, but they are not perfect for every situation. If you live in a particularly hot and moist area or are planning on installing your plantation shutters in your bathroom or over your kitchen sink, you may want to try Polysatin™ compound shutters. These shutters are made out of an ultraviolet ray resistant material. What does that mean? It means that they are guaranteed never to warp, crack, fade, chip, peel, or discolor. So feel free to install these in a warm, muggy place without any fear of ruining them. Palm Beach™ shutters are the Hunter Douglas Polysatin™ compound option.

Hybrid Wood Shutters

What if you are looking for something in between hardwood and Polysatin™ shutters? Well, there is a style just for those of you who cannot quite make up their mind. Hybrid plantation shutters blend the beauty of real wood with modern, nonorganic materials to create shutters that give you the best of both worlds. You get some of the elegance of natural wood, and you get some of the durability and strength of the compound shutters. NewStyle® are the Hunter Douglas hybrid option.
