Why choose custom wooden shutters for your windows?
If you’re looking to find top quality wooden shutters for low costs, you’re in the right place. Naturally beautiful, real wooden shutters will add character and warmth to any room. Interior wood shutters are timeless and versatile, they’re perfect for complementing both traditional and contemporary styles. You can choose a stain that lets the natural characteristics of your wooden shutters shine through or go for painted wooden shutters to complement your décor.
Natural wood shutters
We offer two types of natural wood shutters for inside your windows: Natural Hardwood and Premium Hardwood.
You may notice that we don’t offer cedar window shutters, we prefer our range of materials because they combine natural beauty and durability for interior shutters. Our wooden shutters are 100% solid, and they're never hollow or composite, allowing them to withstand the test of time. Our hardwood shutters are smooth, while we also offer a grained option for added texture.
What type of wood is best for internal plantation shutters?
These classic shutters are made from Poplar Hardwood - a solid wood with a smooth finish. Our best-selling range, they’re a versatile choice as they come in 7 paint colors and 7 stains. Alternatively, you can opt for an unfinished set, and they’ll be ready for you to paint or stain yourself. This range has the largest variety of shutter frame styles and frame sizes available. A great choice for solid panels and special shapes. We can also accommodate special requests such as color matching and fixed louvers.
Limewash finish shutters are the perfect choice for a more rustic shutter style. This shutter range has a deep wood grain and textured surface. The natural appearance of this wood looks great with traditional or farmhouse style décor. Available in similar color choices, all frame and slat size options as our Natural Hardwood range.
Premium Hardwood Shutters are proudly American-made, with this range crafted from solid poplar hardwood in our American facility. The biggest difference between this and the Classic Poplar Hardwood range is where they’re made and the manufacturing time. The Premium Hardwood is ready to ship in about 3 weeks, cutting out transit time, but this range isn’t available for café or tier on tier style, special shapes or custom color matching.
What styles of plantation shutters are available in solid wood?
Choose from our range of indoor shutter styles, whether you’d like solid wooden panels ideal for full height shutters, or wooden louvered café style shutters, each type looks stunning when crafted from our range of natural wooden materials. As shades and appearance can vary on your screens, we encourage you to request some free shutter samples because we want you to find the perfect match for your windows.
