2 Types Of Interior Wood Shutters In Detroit, MI

March 28, 2016

Wooden shutters are a window covering known to be durable and sturdy. The shutter panels allow you to easily access the window. The shutter louvers let you adjust for temperature, light, and privacy. And they bring the innate beauty of wood to your house!

You can choose between two types of wood shutters in Detroit. Stained wooden shutters are the traditional shutter of choice. And reclaimed wood shutters are a new shutter product, launched in early 2016.

What is the difference between stained wood shutters and reclaimed wood shutters? And which works better for your house?

Wood Shutters In Detroit

Interior wood shutters are constructed from solid hardwood that’s durable. You can select from an array of wood stains and paints to match your floor, furniture, and décor.

These wooden plantation shutters come in varying louver sizes: 4.5”, 3.5”, and 2.5”. The preferred louver size for wood shutters in Detroit is 4.5” because it gives you the most access to the view, and it’s the easiest to clean.

You can adjust your wood shutters for light and privacy using a tilt rod. Move the wooden louvers toward the ceiling to allow less light into the room. Shift them downward to get more brightness and view.

Reclaimed Wood Shutters in Detroit

Certified reclaimed wood shutters are a new option for wooden shutters in Detroit, provided exclusively by Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions. The wood these shutter louvers are made from was part of barns, buildings, and fences. Bring a natural charm into your home with the weathered look of these interior wood shutters.

Reclaimed wood colors can vary greatly, due to the way wood ages in the elements. Colors can include shades of gray, beige, brown, and black. You can notice color variations within a single louver, and each shutter panel. And these wood shutters feature marks, holes, and knots that are natural in reclaimed wood.
