When it comes to window treatment styles, shutters are considered a solution that is classic and timeless. Their ability to be adapted for specialty window shapes combined with their availability in a range of materials make shutters a very versatile product. In this blog, we are exploring modern shutters for both the interior and exterior of your home.
Interior Modern Shutters
Hunter Douglas Heritance Hardwood Shutter
While the Hunter Douglas Heritance line may seem like the traditional choice, we find that the finish and final styling can turn this window treatment into the definition of a modern shutter. This solution is made from 100% natural hardwood, either basswood or poplar. Between its craftsmanship and the Integra™ Finish, these shutters are extremely durable!
The beauty of choosing the Heritance Hardwood Shutter is that it’s available in an endless number of finishes. You have the option of selecting one of our available paint colors or stains, or customize them to complement your existing decor! In our opinion, finishes like “Salt and Pepper” or “Driftwood” are perfect for a modern farmhouse look!
Hunter Douglas Palm Beach Shutter
The Hunter Douglas Palm Beach Shutter is crafted from a UV-resistant Polysatin™ material that prevents warping, cracking, fading, chipping, and peeling. This makes it an ideal solution for spaces that are exposed to intense sunlight and moisture. This line is considered a modern shutter for the light and airy look it brings to a space on its own! If you’d like to add a bit of color and flair, this shutter is instantly elevated when paired with Design Studio™ Drapery.
Hunter Douglas New Style Hybrid Shutter
Hunter Douglas New Style Hybrid Shutters are made from a wood composite material co-extruded with a polypropylene coating for a quality product that’s built to withstand the test of time. With SoftClose™ Louvers that allow for a soft close, this window treatment is considered modern in its functionality! This particular line is available in a palette of soft colors as well as stains and grain textures that mimic the look and feel of genuine wood.
Exterior Modern Shutters
Exterior shutters help make a statement while being extremely functional. Whether your goal is to protect your interior from solar rays or keep your outdoor space cool — shutters have come a long way in recent years! Not only are they available in a wide variety of materials and colors, but they can be customized for almost any space. In order to prioritize your view, exterior shutters are available “Bahama-style” where they hinge at a 90-degree angle, as well as sliding and bi-fold options.
