White plantation shutters are sanded, primed, re-sanded, and covered with three premium water based acrylic top coats. The result is a deep, smooth, satin sheen furniture-grade finish. UV inhibitors protect the finish from constant stress of intense sunlight.

White shutters are the pinnacle of modern American window coverings. They easily assimilate to modest minimalistic design with clean lines and limited color palette. They are equally compatible with decor that flaunts bold patterns, an array of colors, and rich eclectic furnishings.

There are literally thousands of whites and off-white paint colors from which to select when painting a home. Choosing the appropriate white shutters for an interior space can be extremely difficult. Knowing the paint manufacturer and color name helps immensely. However, colors cure over time and possibly change tone. Standard paint colors are also notoriously inconsistent and vary depending on time and location mixed.

Comparisons of two or more white paints can most challenging inside of a window opening. Direct or indirect sunlight can dramatically change the perception of colors. One white might have a slightly higher sheen than another which alters how an eye receives and process the tone. Even the same paint applied to various planes can appear darker or lighter in contrast. White also reflects colors of prominent outside sources, like a large tree with lots of leaves making white shutters appear more green.

Most customers find that one of the two available standard Horizon paint colors acceptable for their application. These two basic whites are adaptable to numerous environments. Many other customers require white shutters outside of the regular line. Custom painted shutters are available to those in need of a more specific color.

White shutters are commonly used in bathrooms and kitchens. The color brightness the space, and often makes it feel bigger. Privacy can be achieved by rotating the louvers just enough to block the line of sight, yet let light to reflect off of the louvers, filling the room with bright natural light.

We have had our shutters delivered on time and I installed them some time ago. We can't tell you how much we enjoy them. A perfect fit and an easy install they really stand out in our living and dining rooms and have drawn the admiration of our visitors. But most of all, I am really pleased with the weight, finish and quality of construction - just superb. I build furniture as a hobby so I know something of what I speak. And to you personally, thanks for the really great customer service. Unusual today to get a real person on the phone and one who knows the product.
