With so many beautiful windows in today’s homes, it’s easy to become confused out how to dress them. On the one hand, you need privacy, especially after dark, but on the other, you don’t want to detract from the beauty of the window’s architecture, whether it’s a graceful arched window or a modern bay. In some cases, it’s worry over obscuring a view of mountains, rural fields, a lake or the ocean that’s most concerning. You don’t want to lose an inch of that incredible vista you’re lucky enough to have. The number one solution used time and again by design professionals is hardwood shutters. Why hardwood shutters? One look at their many benefits says it all.
Privacy and Unobscured Viewing in One Product
When shutters are fully opened, they allow for maximum light and a perfectly clear view of the outdoors. Even the most expensive, luxurious pair of draperies can’t make that claim.
The Window is Still the Star Attraction
Because custom wood shutters mount on the inside the window frame, they don’t detract from the window’s architecture, letting the window be the main focus.
A beautiful wood shutter is traditional, classic and modern all at the same time, blending seamlessly with a room’s decor and atmosphere, whether it’s minimalist, traditional, country, rustic or somewhere in between. That’s one of the reasons they’re a favorite of interior designers everywhere. They’re beautiful enough to embellish a window on their own, but they’ll be just as attractive with curtains, a valance or draperies layered on top of them. And because they’re custom-made for your window, they always look like a ‘match made in heaven’ for the window they adorn.
Beauty + Quality + Longevity
Hardwood shutters are incredibly warm, rich and beautiful, and their hardwood construction makes for the best quality money can buy, ensuring years of service and enduring beauty.

Hardwood shutters work in every functional space and create a uniform look in your open floor plan.
