Plantation shutters offer homeowners the perfect balance of elevated aesthetics and superior functionality. Regardless of the size or shape of your windows, Specialty Drapery can customize plantation shutters to fit any environment or design preference. 

As with all window treatment types, an overwhelming number of plantation shutter brands exist. We understand that the brands we carry are a reflection of our business. For that reason, we take the brand selection process very seriously. At Specialty Drapery, we have sifted through dozens of brands to select only the finest options for you. This saves you time and instills confidence that you’re choosing a product that meets the highest of standards.

Plantation Shutters from Hunter Douglas®

One of the plantation shutter brands we offer at Speciality Drapery is Hunter Douglas®. We include Hunter Douglas® in our product offering for a number of reasons, the most important of which is their commitment to quality and innovation. Hunter Douglas® remains one of the top names in window treatments, while continuously refining their products and developing new offerings. They also take into account environmental sustainability and child safety in the construction of their products.

Varieties of Plantation Shutters

Although we’ve carefully selected Hunter Douglas® through our experience and brand research, there are still plenty of decisions to be made within the Hunter Douglas® product line! Choose from an extensive variety of materials, colors, finishes, and shapes.

Heritance® Wood – Heritance® plantation shutters are expertly crafted from 100% real basswood or poplar hardwood. They come in endless colors and stains to meet your desired aesthetic. Hunter Douglas® provides an assortment of paints and stains, but you can also customize your color to perfectly match your space. Their Integra™ Finish then seals the shutters with a lustrous and durable coat, allowing for minimal upkeep and long-lasting use.

NewStyle® Composite – Constructed from a wood composite material, NewStyle® shutters provide the appearance of real hardwood, in addition to unmatched weatherability and longevity. These sturdy plantation shutters come in a variety of textures and colors.

PalmBeach™ Vinyl – PalmBeach™ plantation shutters are comprised of a Polysatin™ material that resists wear and tear. Damaging UV rays that typically cause fading, cracking, and chipping have little effect on PalmBeach™ shutters. Additionally, the Polysatin™ material is less susceptible to warping caused by changes in humidity than other materials are. The superior weather resistance of PalmBeach™ shutters makes them an ideal solution for homes in hot or humid climates like we experience in Virginia. In fact, Hunter Douglas® is so confident in the quality of this product that they offer a lifetime guarantee against sun and moisture damage.
