As modern design elements grow in popularity, it is hard to stand out with a noticeable, high-class home design. The rise of new construction, renovations for open concept, and popular big-box furniture and design stores means more of our homes look very similar. Sometimes, the best way to catch attention with your interior design is to go back to classic, traditional options with a timeless look. With Hunter Douglas shutters from The Drapery Guy, you can upgrade your interior design.
Many of us are most familiar with shutters as a decorative item on the exterior of older homes. While shutters were originally used on the exterior of windows to protect them, over time we began to affix shutters next to our windows for a design aesthetic. As the popularity of that trend has faded, many of us don’t see shutters around as often. But using shutters in your interior design can help create an elegant design that calls back to the style of a traditional, Southern-style home.
To capture the true essence of the classic Southern interior design, you can opt for Heritance® Hardwood Shutters. Made from genuine basswood or poplar, these shutters add warmth to your home in a traditional, comfortable way. However, this classic design still lets you enjoy the minimal maintenance of modern window treatments. Built with a Truemill® dovetail construction, these hardwood shutters are extremely strong and durable because the components are tightly interlocked. Also, the Integra™ Finish is applied in multiple coats to create a long-lasting high luster. With a variety of finish options, you can ensure the color of your genuine woodgrain complements your interior design perfectly.
For those with busy households, kids, and pets, you might prefer the appearance of genuine hardwood without the natural materials. While Hunter Douglas Heritance Hardwood Shutters are durable, modern materials offer enhanced strength under rough conditions. With NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters, you can enjoy the warm wooden texture without worrying about weather or other conditions damaging the hybrid material. These shutters are built with a wood composite for a natural look combined with a polypropylene coating for extra durability. The Finetech™ Finish replicates the character of genuine hardwood while the selection of UltraGrain® finishes mimics the look of wooden shutters.
Finally, if your window treatments are often subjected to the intense heat of unfiltered sunlight or are in a humid room in your home, you want to feel confident that your shutters will last for years to come. Plus, in such a sunny, warm home, you might enjoy a more modern, beachy vibe rather than a true traditional look. Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters are made with a durable Polysatin material which is ultraviolet-resistant. This makes them resistant to cracking, fading, warping, chipping, and peeling, even in the intense sunlight. They are also water resistant, so they are less likely to grow mold and mildew in a damp or humid space. With the DuraLux™ Finish, you can enjoy a stylish matte finish with whichever color you select.
