Wooden shutters are a window covering that is sturdy and durable. The shutter panels allow you to easily access the window. The shutter louvers let you control temperature, light, and privacy. And they bring the innate beauty of wood to your home!
Homeowners can select one of two types of wooden shutters in Austin. Reclaimed wood shutters are a new shutter product, launched in early 2016. And stained wooden shutters are a classic choice for shutters.
What are the differences between reclaimed wood shutters and stained wood shutters? And which works better for your home?
Wood shutters are built from durable, solid hardwood. Pick from a variety of wood stains and paints to complement your furniture, décor, and floor.
These wooden plantation shutters come in these louver sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The louver size Austinites prefer the most for wood shutters is 4.5”. It allows you the most access to the view, and it’s the easiest to clean.
You can adjust your wood shutters for privacy and light using a tilt rod. Tilt the wooden louvers all the way up to allow less light into the room. Move them downward to get more brightness and view.
Certified reclaimed wood shutters are a new option for wooden shutters in Austin, provided exclusively by Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions. The wood these shutter louvers are built from used to be part of buildings, fences, and barns. Bring a natural charm into your house with the weathered look of these wood shutters.
Reclaimed wood colors can vary greatly. That’s because of how the elements affect the wood. Colors can include shades of beige, brown, black, and gray. You might notice color variations between one shutter panel and another – it can even vary on a single louver. And these wood shutters feature holes, knots, and marks that are natural in reclaimed wood.
