Why Choose Shenandoah Shutters For Your Plantation Shutters

Why Choose Shenandoah Shutters For Your Plantation Shutters

For centuries, plantation shutters have been the window treatment of choice for homeowners all over the world. Plantations shutters are an incredibly unique window treatment, with numerous benefits, designs, and options for your home. You’ve almost certainly noticed plantation shutters on the windows of your neighbors’ houses, and even in the movies

If you’ve recently purchased a home, or if you’re looking to upgrade your existing window treatment, you might have wondered about your own choices for plantation shutters. Shenandoah Shutters has been handcrafting custom made, hardwood plantation shutters for residences in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C since the 1990s. We’re located in Richmond, within a day’s drive of all of our service areas, and we’re ready to create custom plantation shutters for your area home. At Shenandoah Shutters, we never use vinyl, plastic, or composite materials. We use authentic hardwood with a distinction that you can see and feel. 

Why should you choose Shenandoah Shutters for your window treatment? Here is how Shenandoah Shutters makes the difference:

Shenandoah Shutters Offers Traditional and Contemporary Styles

When you think of plantation shutters, you likely think of the kind of traditional design that perhaps your parents or grandparents had on their own windows. While traditional plantation shutters are timeless and elegant, Shenandoah Shutters also offers a plethora of design options for modern plantation shutters. 

At Shenandoah Shutters, You Can Choose the Details of Your Plantation Shutters

At Shenandoah Shutters, you’ll choose from rich stains, vibrant whites, and gorgeous custom colors. You can even request a custom wood, like cherry, walnut, oak, or mahogany, to match your moulding or the furniture pieces in your home. You’ll also have the option to choose your shutter’s most important details, including the size and shape of your louvers (the horizontal slats that allow you to filter light in and out of the home), the type of tilt rod, and any specialty options, like our original, patented Softedge design

When it comes to the size and shape of your louvers, you have several options. You can choose from 2.5 inch, 3.5 inch, or 4.5 inch wide louvers. You can also choose from flat or contoured louvers. All of these options are entirely a matter of personal preference. The tilt rod (which controls the movement of the louvers) is also customizable. You might prefer a single tilt rod, which is attached to all of the louvers on the panel of your shutter, or a divider rail, allowing you to control the upper and lower louvers separately. You might even prefer a hidden tilt rod for a thoroughly modern look, or a split tilt rod for an equally clean appearance. 

Shenandoah Shutters Offers Beautiful Solutions for Unique Windows

Harmonious lines are a key part of contemporary architecture. Our Softedge design is another choice for your plantation shutters. With the Softedge, the hinges of your plantation shutters are completely concealed when they are closed, an ideal solution for tilt-in and casement windows. With the Softedge, you don’t have to worry about hanging strips or bulky frames that affect the appearance of your plantation shutters. 

The end result of so many choices are beautiful plantation shutters that are truly customized to not only the size of your windows, but to your own specifications, as well. 

Shenandoah Shutters Can Complete Even the Most Difficult Installations

Do you have an oddly shaped window? Are you wondering how to install plantation shutters on a sliding glass door, sunburst, sidelight, or French door? Shenandoah Shutters knows all of the tricks for a gorgeous installation on even the most unusual windows. 

For doors, we use shadowboxes and sliders to allow your door to maintain both functionality and beautiful plantation shutters. In the past, for especially difficult window treatments, we’ve even used magnets to get the installation just right! At Shenandoah Shutters, you can be sure that no matter the window, we can customize plantation shutters to fit your home’s needs. 

Shenandoah Shutters is Made in America

Shenandoah Shutters is a Veteran-owned and family operated business that is proud to use only the finest American woods and materials. For customers who don’t desire a custom wood type, our go-to choices are yellow poplar and basswood. Yellow poplar is an ideal wood for cream colored shutters, while basswood makes for stunning stains. After we craft your plantation shutters, we handfinish each shutter with a silken, furniture-quality lacquer. 

Shenandoah Shutters Offers a Warranty for Our Customers

Shenandoah Shutters is one of the few plantation shutter providers that offers a warranty on both our work and our gorgeous lacquer finish. We provide a 100-year limited transferable warranty on our plantation shutters, as well as a 25-year warranty on our lacquer finish. This way, all of our customers have peace of mind that the work that we have done on their  shutters is of the absolute highest quality. 

Enjoy the Perks of Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are an extraordinary investment for your home. They are energy-efficient, keeping your house warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer. This often leads to reduced heating and air bills. Plantation shutters also increase the resale value of your home, as well as your home’s curb appeal. Plantation shutters blend in well with any home decor theme or design scheme. They look more like fine furniture than a window treatment, but they don’t require elaborate cleaning techniques. At Shenandoah Shutters, you don’t even have to worry about adjusting the tension, as we don’t use a tension system. 

If you have young children in the home, you don’t have to worry about any cords or dangling fabrics that could pose a safety risk, either. As a result, plantation shutters are a popular choice over blinds or curtains for nurseries and children’s playrooms.

Janet, Lynchburg, VA

“This company is fantastic. From the first contact we had with them (visiting their showroom) to the final installation, they are #1 professionals. After we visited the showroom, the salesperson came to our home, showed us a sample shutter, and made recommendations (and gave different styles) for our windows. After we accepted the contract, she made an appointment to come out and do exact measurements. We love our new shutters, and every element of this contract could not have been better. They even left a jar of VA peanuts!”

“We love hearing from our clients – Here’s a review we received this week……..”My shutters were delivered and installed this morning. From start to finish the installation took about 90 minutes. I am beyond impressed with the high quality craftsmanship and over the moon with how gorgeous they are. I’d also like to note, that everyone from Marcia in sales, Jodi in billing, and the installers, whose names I didn’t catch, are supremely professional.
