Why Windows Need Plantation Shutters in Barrington, Illinois (IL) Homes

Plantations shutters from Hunter Douglas are expertly made and beautifully designed to add rich character to your windows, while effectively blocking sunlight and providing optimal privacy. The gorgeous design elevates your windows to being a focal point of your home decoration. With high-quality materials, convenient operating systems, and a vast array of color options, your custom shutters can be made to match perfectly for every room in your home. 

Plantation shutters are perfect for windows where you want to easily open up to see the view. The smooth track system allows you to effortlessly open your shutters, without having to deal with the weight of operating systems that use a cord. 

There are also very few limits to what types of windows plantation shutters will work with. Your custom shutters can be fitted for multiple window shapes, including arches, angles, trapezoids, hexagons and octagons, circles and ovals, bay and corner windows, sliding glass doors, French doors, and cut-outs. These options add even more depth to your choices for your custom shutters. 

There are three forms of plantation shutters made by Hunter Douglas, each made with a different material that offers something unique. 

The Heritance® Hardwood plantation shutters make use of beautiful natural hardwood that’s carved in a dovetail shape to protect against warping or cracking in heat or humidity. With this option, you’ll have classic-looking custom shutters that you’ll be able to cherish for a long time. You can show off the natural wood with a selection of stain colors or pick the best paint color that will add the perfect touch to any space. 

The classic look meets modern innovation with the Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ plantation shutters. UV protection is improved with the use of the durable Polysatin™ material, which is guaranteed to never warp or break from heat or moisture. The material gives a sleek, modern look to the plantation shutters and comes in large selection of beautiful neutral color options. Get the most out of your custom shutters with the Powerview® Motorization operating system available on the Palm Beach™ plantation shutters. With Powerview® Motorization, you can control your shutters from anywhere in the world using your smartphone, tablet, or Pebble® Remote. This system brings an added level of safety to your home, especially if you have pets left at home. 

The NewStyle® plantation shutters combine the natural hardwood look with modern materials. The result is a set of custom shutters that have a classic, low-luster wood look while adding durability and longevity. As with the Heritance® Hardwood option, the NewStyle® shutters come in a wide range of color options. The NewStyle® Plantation shutters are able to achieve all of this at an approachable price.
