When people think of window treatments, the first things that come to mind are blinds and shades, or curtains and drapes.  Most people forget about shutters.  Some people call them interior shutters, plantation shutters, or just shutters.  For this article I will use the term shutters.  Shutters are made with hinged panels allowing the panels to swing open to allow access to the window.  Each panel has a frame and louvers.  When the panels are closed the louvers tilt open or closed to control the amount of light allowed into the room. 

As a Hunter Douglas Showcase Priority Dealer, Beyond Blinds Inc. has access to the full Hunter Douglas shutter line.  This product line consists of three products, Heritance, New Style and Palm Beach.  Heritance hardwood shutters are made of genuine wood and are available in a multitude of colors, both stained and painted.  New Style Hybrid shutters combine the great style of wood with the strength and straightness of modern day materials.  Palm Beach Polysatin shutters with the advanced DuraLux finish will not warp, crack, fade, peel, chip, or discolor. 

All of the Hunter Douglas shutters are available with 2 ½”, 3 ½”, or 4 ½” louver sizes and with frame styles to fit and work with almost any window.  The larger the louver size, the more the view-through.  Shutters are also available with angled and arched tops for specialty shaped windows.

Shutters are great looking.  Their quality craftsmanship and beautiful finishes make them truly furniture for you windows.  In addition to their great looks they are also energy efficient.  When the louvers are closed, shutters help insulate your windows from the heat or cold outside.
