Best Material for Custom Shutters

Are you looking for a simple way to give your home an updated look, but aren’t sure where to begin? Even the smallest details, like window treatments, can make a big difference in the design of your home. Plantation shutters offer a classic look and great benefits, like increased privacy and UV-resistance. With several different materials available, it can be tough to decide which one is right for your home. At Larry’s Design Center, we can help you explore all your options for plantation shutters to decide which ones work best for you. We have been proudly serving our customers since 1951. We are located in New Hyde Park, NY and proudly serve the New York City and Long Island areas, including Suffolk, Nassau, Queens, Manhattan, and Brooklyn.

If you love natural materials, then hardwood shutters would be a great fit for you. Hunter Douglas offers the Heritance hardwood shutters, which are made from real wood. When you get your custom shutters made with real hardwood, you get a long-lasting addition to your home. You can get these plantation shutters customized in any color or finish you would like. They can even be distressed for added character.

Do you love the way that hardwood shutters look, but want something that is a little less expensive? Hunter Douglas also offers NewStyle® hybrid shutters. These shutters are the best of both worlds! They imitate the look of hardwood plantation shutters, but are crafted from modern-day materials to help make them more affordable. However, the fact that they are less expensive does not mean that they are less durable. The resistance of man-made materials means that NewStyle® shutters will look great in your home for years to come.

Think about where you want to put your plantation shutters when choosing the material. They can be placed in any window in your home. We even have shutters for your French door available, meaning you can have beautiful plantation shutters on all your windows to create a more cohesive look. Hot and moist climates in your home also need window coverage. The Palm Beach Polysatin® shutters by Hunter Douglas are made from a UV-resistant Polysatin® compound, which is resistant to high heat and humidity. This material is perfect for your bathroom, because it is guaranteed to look brand new for years to come. They won’t peel, crack, warp, or lose their original color.

Regardless of which material you use for your custom plantation shutters, you won’t have to worry about strenuous upkeep. Cleaning of all three materials is fast, easy, and mess-free. Usually, all you need to do is wipe them down with a damp cloth or clean with mild soap and water. Plus, all our shutters are covered with the Hunter Douglas limited lifetime warranty.

When choosing what material is best for your custom shutters, the most important thing to keep in mind is what you and your family need. If you are having trouble deciphering your needs, our team of skilled designers would be more than happy to lend a hand. Call us today to find the perfect plantation shutters for your home.
