Primary Type 1: Composite

These are less expensive compared to hardwood, about 20% to 25% on average. They are a compressed PVC mix put together to mimic the look of authentic wood. Because they are vinyl, they go best in places around the home with a lot of moisture such as bathrooms and kitchens. 


Primary Type 2: Hardwood

Hardwood shutters are more expensive, but for a very good reason: nothing can truly beat or replace the authentic look and feel of real wood. These shutters are about 19% to 26% lighter in weight than composite as well, which translates to easier use and less sag over time compared to their vinyl counterparts. Our hardwood shutters are manufactured locally, right here in Idaho!


Different Shutter Options 1: Tilt System (Center Rod)

Features a bar that runs vertically down the center and allows the user to actuate the shutters manually. 


Different Shutter Options 1: Hidden Tilt Rod

Provides a cleaner look with no center bar. Can be operated by manually tilting a single louvre that then actuates all of them at once.


All options can come in different colors and louvre lengths that can allow for more customization options and light levels you want in your home. They can also be made to various lengths to go along both long and short windows in your home. The choice is up to you so you can make your next window covering project a success!
