Arlington, Virginia: The County that Could be a City
Shenandoah Shutters has been proudly serving Arlington since 2003
Arlington County, Virginia is the sixth largest county in Virginia, with a population of over 230,000. But, simply called “Arlington” by most residents, it seems almost like its own city rather than a county. Here you can find prestigious universities, the pentagon, and even Arlington National Cemetery. But these big attractions aren’t all there is to Arlington.
Those who live in Arlington know of the proud green initiatives throughout the county, whether by planting trees or encouraging green, energy efficient renovations. You can breathe deeply and clearly as you take a stroll through community gardens in Arlington. You can also enjoy dog parks, nature centers, camps for kids, or simply a tranquil view from your own home through your own windows. And how better to draw the eye to those windows than with the right window shutters?
Why Plantation Shutters — And What Kind
Plantation shutters are popular throughout Virginia, including in Arlington, for a few reasons. First, there’s no style that can beat the classic, timeless elegance of plantation shutters. With adjustable blinds, these shutters allow light to filter softly into the room, creating a warm, homey atmosphere instead of something harsh and glaring. They suit both classic and modern styles and they’re right for just about any room.
But if you’re looking for more variety, Shenandoah Shutters also offers our own, patented Softedge plantation shutters. These shutters use European cabinetry style hinges, such as you might see in kitchen or bathroom cabinets. They retain a classic elegance like traditional plantation shutters, with a little more versatility that’s perfect for casement and awning windows.
Why Choose Shenandoah Shutters
Shenandoah Shutters puts care and precision into every set of shutters we make, from the wood — yellow poplar so that the color lasts longer and the finish remains smooth for longer than the porous basswood — to the finish. We also offer specialty woods like cherry and oak upon request. These shutters are 100% made in America, created in our Richmond workshop. We have a number of tilt and mounting options so you can find the style of plantation shutters that works best for you.
