Wood shutters are a window treatment known to be durable and sturdy. You can easily access the window by opening the shutter panels. The shutter louvers let you adjust for privacy, light, and temperature. And they bring the innate charm of wood to your home!
You can choose between two types of wooden shutters in Gainesville. Stained wooden shutters are a classic choice for shutters. And reclaimed wood shutters were introduced in early 2016.
What is the difference between reclaimed wood shutters and stained wood shutters? And which works better for your windows?
Wooden shutters are built from solid, durable hardwood. You can choose from a variety of wood paints and stains to complement your décor, floor, and furniture.
Plantation shutters made from wood are available in varying louver sizes: 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5”. The louver size Floridians prefer the most for wood shutters is 4.5”. That’s 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. Tilt the wooden louvers all the way up to let less light into the room. Tilt them open for more light and view.
Certified reclaimed wood shutters are a new wood shutter option in Gainesville, brought to you exclusively by Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions. The wood these shutter louvers are built from was previously part of buildings, fences, and barns. Their weathered look brings a natural charm to your house.
Reclaimed wood colors can vary greatly, due to the way wood ages in the elements. Colors may include shades of beige, brown, black, and gray. You will see color variations between one shutter panel and another – it can even vary on a single louver. And these wood shutters feature knots, marks, and holes that naturally occur in reclaimed wood.
