Today, there are many different types of shutters used for a variety of purposes, from decorative to actual function. They come in a wide variety of different styles to accommodate virtually anyone’s needs and tastes, including wood, plastic, vinyl, steel, and metal. While some shutters are used specifically for aesthetic reasons as part of a bigger exterior or interior design plan, several other styles are used for protecting both residential and commercial structures from damaging weather conditions as well as for privacy.
Serving as interior decorative features, shutters are frequently used as primary window treatments since they’re quite attractive and functional on their own without the need for further embellishments. For instance, plantation shutters are extremely versatile and can be incorporated into many decor styles, including contemporary, traditional, and transitional. They can add a great deal of charm to cottage, rustic, or beach house (nautical) themed decor styles. Besides being a key design feature, shutters often provide some degree of functionality as well, for instance, to control light and manage privacy. A number of shutter styles today offer adjustable slats and louvers to adequately filter out light.

Shutters offer a stylish, chic alternative to standard curtains or blinds and have a special way of adding character to both the interior and exterior of the home. They’re also easy to clean and don’t absorb dust like fabric window treatments. Overall, different types of shutters can make a great asset to any well-designed home.
Interior shutters give your home a beautiful appearance from both inside and a great curb appeal outside. You can have a lot of functionality from shutters inside of your home. The three main materials they are made from include hardwood, vinyl and composite wood.
Custom hardwood shutters these are the full spectrum of being classic, modern and traditional to blend in with any style that you incorporate into your home or rooms. The hardwood design gives you many years of life from them in a high quality product. Hardwood shutters work well in a home with an open concept or a great room. They dress the windows with continuity from one room to the next where all of the windows can be seen from a large area in your home. You can choose custom hardwood shutters in a wide variety of color, as they are stained to your preference.
Vinyl shutters are affordable for everyone, no matter what their budget is, as they are the least expensive type of indoor shutters. It can help as they take less time to produce. If you need custom shutters in a hurry, then vinyl is the choice that most homeowners make. Vinyl is also a long lasting material so you will get many years out of this type of window covering.
Composite Wood Shutters
Composite wood shutters work well in any home. They look identical to hardwood and have the longevity of vinyl for the best of both worlds. They can be decorative only or be functional depending on your taste.
How to Choose a Type
The best options for rooms that have humid conditions, such as a bathroom, kitchen, mudroom or laundry room are the vinyl construction shutters. They are very durable in moist environments and are impervious to high moisture in these types of rooms in your home. Vinyl is long lasting, as it is not subject to crack, peel, fade or chip. Adding vinyl shutters to your humid area allows you to have continuity throughout the home with functionality in mind.
Hardwood shutters are lighter in weight, so that they operate better than the other materials in shutter construction. The hardwood provides smooth opening and closing without twisting.
Composite wood shutters will also stand up to moisture rich areas in your home, though not quite as well as their vinyl counterparts. Composite wood is termite, rot and moisture resistance for a long lasting window treatment. Homeowners that want a particular color of shutters usually tends to buy this type as you can have them painted in any color you wish.
