Faux Wood Shutter Features
The timeless style of interior shutters is simply unmatched, and these window treatments also help improve the value of your home. However, not all shutters work well in every room of the house or every budget. Thankfully, you can get the real wood appearance at a reduced cost with faux wood shutters. Made of composite material, these shutters are a bit more on the budget-friendly side for those who want shutters but don’t want to go all-in on real wood. Additionally, unlike real wood, these shutters are better suited for areas with high moisture such as a bathroom or kitchen, especially above the sink.
Faux wood shutters are excellent insulators as well as noise reducers. Control both light and noise entering or exiting your home while also reducing your energy bills. These interior shutters also can be available with a motorized option for convenient, hands-free operation.
Faux Wood Shutter Considerations
- Faux wood shutters work well in areas that are humid or prone to moisture, such as bathrooms or above kitchen sinks. Real wood shutters can warp or crack under extended exposure to moisture.
- Faux wood shutters are less expensive than real wood shutters and have a nearly identical appearance.
- Because of their composite materials, faux wood shutters resist fading, warping, yellowing, scratching, denting, moisture damage, and staining.
- Due to their size and weight, installation can be tricky. Our experts can help with installation questions at 1-800-505-1905. We also offer professional services to handle the entire shutter process, from measuring to installation
