Whether you are a traditionalist that loves the warm look of wood or a modern minimalist who likes the clean crisp simplicity of shutters, you’ll find there is a plantation shutter for every style and need. Bolliger Window Fashions and Interiors in Portland Oregon can help you choose the right plantation shutter for your home.
Plantation Shutters Offer A Better View
Modern plantation shutters are offered in larger louver sizes. When you open the louvers, you can see more of your view while still protecting your furnishings from harmful UV rays. Unlike predecessor shutters, plantation shutters are easier to clean and maintain and allow more natural sunlight. Shutters can also be mounted in various ways to allow you to enjoy your windows better than ever.
Types of Plantation Shutters
Hunter Douglas Plantation Shutters in Portland Oregon come in three basic types: genuine hardwood, hybrid and a PolySatin™ man-made material. Each shutter is designed to be durable with lasting finishes and durable craftsmanship. Shutter choice often has more to do with budget and where they are placed then any other criteria.
Heritance® Hardwood Shutters
Our Heritance® line is made from genuine hardwood and offers the real beauty of natural wood to warm your décor. They can be painted or stained to match existing wood or furnishings and give you the most choices when it comes to color. They are lightweight making them a better choice for larger windows. They don’t hold up well to high heat or humidity. If you are choosing a shutter for your master bath or kitchen, a hybrid shutter may be a better choice.
New Style™ Hybrid Shutters
Our New Style® Hybrid Shutters are made from a composite of real wood and man-made materials. This makes the shutter more durable. They are somewhat heavier but work better in high traffic areas. They come in fewer colors like neutral gray, white and off-white. Like their genuine wood counterparts, they can be placed in a variety of window sizes and shapes. New Style® Hybrid Shutters mimic real wood and offer a grain finish that can be quite appealing. They are easier to care for and are designed to resist dust.
Palm Beach™ PolySatin™ Shutters
Our Palm Beach™ line is made completely of a man made PolySatin™ material. It comes in fewer color options and is designed to work in areas of high humidity and high heat. It is the heaviest of the shutters. When decorating larger windows and sliding glass doors choosing the right operating system is important to offset the weight. Palm Beach™ shutters are guaranteed to never warp, fade, chip, or peel. Their indestructible material makes them a perfect choice for kids’ rooms and areas of high traffic or humidity. They are easy to care for and last a lifetime.
