Faux-wood plantation shutters are a stylish and practical substitute to drapes and curtains. These shutters can be configured to cover any shape and size of the window as well as sliding glass doors and French doors. Faux wood shutters are amazing with any décor and will also include your homes curb appeal.
Window Shutters materials
The shutters come in many different materials including Polyvinyl, PVC, and Polysatin. Composite shutters are made from a mixture of wood and made-made stuff. This mixture of polymers and hardwoods helps these shutters retain their look and appearance. Because of their resistance to moisture, they are especially helpful for the bathroom, kitchens, and top-humidity atmospheres. They will not warp like wood does, they are resistant to mildew and mold, and their materials render them immune to fading and flaking.
Faux-wood shutter installation
Every room in your home will look better with faux-wood shutter installed. These shutters are available in many styles, Café Style, covering the bottom half of the window only, or twin-tiered models to cover the full window. You then have the choice of opening bottom louvers, top louvers, and bottom louvers for highest light and/or ventilation. The slats or louvers measure from 1-1/2 inch broad to over four inches wide with several choices in-between. The bigger louvers are preferred for faux-wood shutters and for windows with big expanses of glass. The big louvers permit the top ventilation and most panoramic outdoor view. You can darken a room only by closing the shutters strongly. They provide amazing light control and privacy as well as top standard look for a cost-friendly price.
One of the largest advantages of faux wood interior shutters is their affordable price. At 20% – 30% less than wood shutters, they are cost-friendly for most home budgets.
The color options by some producers are very big – you are not stuck with white-only, although that is a perfect look. If you cannot find the color you like, you can order unpainted shutters.
These shutters gather beauty with durability. Another advantage of faux-wood shutters is ease of cleaning. They are especially simple to keep clean and dust-free with the swipe of a cloth. For stubborn dirt, hot water and a mild dish detergent will make a simple cleaning job. Their stain and semi-gloss finish makes clean-up a snap and provides every room a perfect look.
You can buy shutters and self-install, or have the vendor do the faux wood shutters installation. These shutters can be installed within the window frame, to the window frame itself, or outside the window frame. The latter can be done when the window frame is extremely nonexistent or narrow.
