The right shutters can add style, color, and dimension to your home with little to no work. Framed windows offer immediate style and detail that will last you all year round.

Our custom-built shutters are not only stylish but are also environmentally-friendly, low-maintenance, as well as moisture, rot, and termite-resistant.
When choosing your shutters, it’s important to consider your budget as well as style, color, and detail.
Choosing a shutter style can come from your own personal style, as well as what you see from other homes around your neighborhood. Think about your home’s architectural style, geographic region, etc. Usually, these style homes look good with the following style shutters:
- Bahama Shutters:
Good for coastal homes
- Raised Panel Shutters:
European, Colonial, and Federal style homes
- Board and Batten Shutters:
Complement cabins, farmhouses, Tudor-style, and cottages
- Louvered Shutters:
Suit most all home styles in general
A great way to make your home stand out is by adding a pop of color to your shutters. According to Better Homes & Gardens,
“Shutters should be readily seen, so choose shutters that stand out against your home’s exterior color; think black shutters on a white Colonial-style abode or cream shutters on a cedar-shingled cottage.”
Using a pop of color is great, but remember to play off of other colors on your home – you don’t want a completely stark contrast from the rest of your home.
Choosing shutters that fit your windows correctly in width and trim is extremely important to their overall effect. Subtle ways of adding increased interest to your shutters are adding detailed hardware, embellished motifs, using a re-finished wood style, etc.
Choosing the right shutters for your home can make a huge difference, and add a lot of bang for your buck. Shutters not only add personality to your home – they are the first step to making your house feel like a home.
