Beautiful Wooden Shutters for Homes

Custom Wooden Shutters for Homes in Parsippany, New Jersey (NJ)

Do you ever see those beautiful, classic-looking homes with the eye-catching shutters on their windows and wonder what shutters might look like on your home? At Rich’s Home Fashion Center, we are here to help you figure out if they are right for your home. We offer beautiful wooden plantation shutters and can help you decide if they will work for you.

Plantation shutters are a very common style of shutters. They have the ability to increase the value of your home, as well as help you control the light and privacy of your home. They are best if you are looking for interior window treatments and are built into the window frame instead of outside the window, which is what most people think of when they think shutters.

Custom shutters provide natural beauty, are durable and lightweight, have a wide range of color options, and come in many sizes. Wood is much more durable than plastic and other materials. Despite that fact that they are lighter than other materials, they still are much stronger. When it comes to color, you have many options to choose from. When you buy from Hunter Douglas, you can choose from the 35 colors that the Heritance® Hardwood Shutters come in or even your own custom color.

However, there are downsides to wooden shutters, including the cost and the upkeep and maintenance of them. If you need shutters for a warm or humid environment in your home, you may want to consider other materials, like the ones used in our Palm Beach™ shutters. Wood can absorb moisture, causing it to warp or crack, so they may not work well in bathrooms or kitchens. In terms of upkeep and maintenance, wooden shutters are going to need to be repainted or re-stained occasionally over the years. If you don’t want to have to repaint every so often, it might be best to look into shutters made out of different materials.

When considering wooden shutters, you should consider how much light and privacy control you want. If you have a home where natural light is important because of a lack of light fixtures in some rooms, shutters can be a great option. They allow in a great amount of natural light and can redirect the light that enters your home, but if you want to be able to soften the light, you may want to consider other window treatments, like shades.
