Traditional material meets modern ingenuity with the Heritance® Hardwood Shutters. The rich, natural material of the shutters is crafted in a dovetail shape, leaving you with a classic look to your custom shutters that will last. With a wide color palette to choose from, you can pick stains that will show off natural grain of the wood or use paints to give the perfect accent to any room.

Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters make use of the innovative Polysatin™ material for optimal UV protection, internal climate control, and long-lasting durability. The color options give a sleek, finely painted look to your custom shutters, with a wide selection for further customization options. These Hunter Douglas shutters are also available with the revolutionary Powerview® Motorization operating system. This system allows you to electronically control your shutters from anywhere in the world and any time, using your smartphone, tablet, or the Pebble® Remote Control. While adding convenience and added climate control to your home, it creates a safer environment overall as well.

The NewStyle® plantation shutters make use of both natural wood and synthetic materials to create durable custom shutters at an approachable price for any home. The wood is balanced carefully with the added materials to create a low-luster look, offering the warm, comforting feel of the natural wood to any room. With a large variety of color options and operating systems to choose from, these Hunter Douglas shutters allow you to create exactly the atmosphere you are looking for.
