Plantation Shutters are a timeless window treatment. Hunter Douglas Shutters will stand the test of time with their durable finishes and impeccable artistry. They offer three styles of Shutter shades, and each is crafted using a different material. Heritance® is made of wood, NewStyle® is made of a wood and poly hybrid, and the Palm Beach™ option is made of vinyl. Each material offers a unique set of benefits, so it’s important to find what material is best suited for your home.

Heritance® Plantation Shutters are crafted from genuine hardwood. If you desire a window fixture that adds a natural feel to the room, then wood is the right material for you. There are six methods to enrich the charm and color of the wood. The techniques offered are glazed, glazed & burnished, heirloom distressed, classic distressed, rustic, and textured. If you are worried about resilience, our wood shutters use Truemill® dovetail construction which is known for being the strongest method of carpentry. The wood is also treated with an Integra™ finish to for a bright shine that will last for a long time with little maintenance. With every Heritance® wood shutter bought, Hunter Douglas makes a contribution to the Arbor Day Foundation to support the preservation of the rainforest. So if you are concerned with the environmental impact of the shades, you can take solace that some of the money you spend will help nature. Having wood Plantation Shutters will add a touch of warmth to any home.

NewStyle® Plantation Shutters are created with a combination of wood and synthetic resources. The hybrid blend of materials combines the long-lasting quality of man-made materials while still resembling real wood. The shutters are then covered with the Finetech® finish to give the material a smooth polished appearance that only requires a cloth to dust off. If you desire a low maintenance material for your Plantation Shutters that still has a natural look, then the wood and poly hybrid option is best suited for you.

Palm Beach™ Plantation Shutters are built using vinyl material. These shutters are scratch and dent resistant and will never need to be touched up. If you have young children, you don’t need to worry about them damaging the window treatments. The Polysatin™ mixture applied to the shutters allows no damage to occur in the presence of moisture. If you live in a damp or humid area, these shutters would be the best option. The inside of the vinyl is fitted with aluminum to make sure it is abnormally strong. Hunter Douglas ensures that the vinyl will last a lifetime without any chipping, fading, peeling, cracking or warping.
