Raised Panel Shutters:

If your exterior window dreams involve incorporating a blooming flower box, then raised panel shutters are just what you need. When these shutters are painted in neutral, dark tones they create the perfect backdrop to flowered garden boxes.

Board and Batten Shutters:

If your home has a more Victorian, European look, then you may want to consider board and batten shutters. This shutter style is ideal for curved windows, thanks to its arched shape, and is the perfect compliment to homes that feature “Tuscan Villa” style architecture.

Shaker Style Shutters:

Simplicity meets functionality with this classic shutter style, originally designed to block out bad weather. These shutters look great in light colored tones, particularly in warmer climates and work on many different home styles.

Plantation Shutters:

The ideal shutters for creating the quintessential Southern look. Plantation shutters are a favorite among homeowners for their charm and elegance and ability to add a touch of character to any home’s exterior. These shutters are the perfect option if you are looking to leave a lasting impression.

California Shutters:

This classic shutter style is intended for interior use and offers the perfect amount of control over how much light enters your home. The wide, wooden, horizontal slats found on California shutters are the ideal choice for filtering out excess light.
