Attractive Faux Wood, PVC Mix, Indoor, Outdoor Vinyl Shutters
If you are looking for shutters to enhance the look of your house, then vinyl shutters are the way to go. With their versatility, durability, low maintenance and affordability, vinyl shutters are giving their wooden counterparts a run for their money. Vinyl shutters are available in a wide assortment of sizes and shapes depending upon your requirement.
Interior vinyl shutters are attractive, practical and easy to use with numerous styles to pick from. They offer flexible light coverage. You may close the shutters for privacy and complete coverage or open them completely for an airy and bright ambience. All of the interior vinyl shutters are movable.
Plantation shutters are a very trendy and common choice. Straight faux wood vinyl shutters and composite vinyl shutters are, at present, the two most popular shutters in the market. Faux wood vinyl shutters were the first alternative wood shutters to enter the market.
Foam filled shutters and hollow based vinyl shutters are its two variants. Foam filled shutters are solid, heavy, attractive and extremely affordable. However, the fact that they are heavy and their parts are irreplaceable deters their appeal. On the other hand, hollow based vinyl shutters are extremely popular.
They are highly energy efficient, very light and scratch-resistant. All their parts are replaceable individually without the need to dismantle the entire shutter. Eclipse and Maxxmar are a rage in vinyl shutters today. Since vinyl shutters do not expand or chip due to moisture or heat, these shutters are great for high moisture areas.
Composite vinyl shutters, which comprise a mix of wood and vinyl, are relatively new in the market. They are available in two variants as well – solid composite and wood and PVC mix. Solid composite are heavier and more expensive.
They are suitable for very large windows. The second type of composite vinyl shutter is the wood and PVC mix with a poly coating on top. While they may be heavier than the regular PVC shutters, they give more of a wooden appearance without the shiny, plastic effect.
Vinyl shutters may be commonly categorized as indoor or outdoor shutters. Outdoor vinyl shutters are available in a variety of styles like louvered, raised panel, joined, board and batten and so on. Louvered shutters are more popular because of their flexibility.
You could match them with almost any style of design and ambience. Raised panel is regarded as more exquisite. Board and batten and joined shutters give a more natural look and feel complementing a farmhouse or cottage-home design. Board and batten and hurricane shutters protect you and your family by offering incredible defense against violent weather. They are designed to remain fixed once installed and are not for decorative purposes. While outside vinyl shutters might require a wash annually, inside shutters merely require periodic dusting.
