Inside Window Shutters
Traditional shutters use narrow 1-1/4 inch louvers, resulting in a window that is internally focused. Traditional inside window shutters encourage a quaint, cozy, comfortable atmosphere. All inside window shutters are constructed from solid basswood and can be painted or stained to match the decor inside the home. Traditional shutters may be configured in a variety of ways based on the window size. The number of configurations are infinate while the shutter photos only show a few examples.
Here are shutter photos of your handiwork. The shutters help to finish off our living room windows very nicely. With draperies we had too much sunshine on bright days due to this being a southern exposure. Have let others know of your fine workmanship. Thanks.
I just had to take a moment to tell you our shutters arrived last Wednesday. I checked the packaging and was thoroughly impressed how well they were packed. Then upon opening and examining the shutters let out a loud "thank you". We are so thrilled with the workmanship and quality. They match our window trim perfectly. Friday and Saturday were spent installing. We had quite a challenge installing them in our bay window, but Roger knew that when he order them. Using our combine talents of amateur carpentry and decorating, we did have them up and in working order by Saturday evening. It took two heads to figure out the angles, cutting pieces of beveled strips and framing them in, but they look great. Thanks for sending the stain to match, we weren't expecting it but were very thankful you had. Now we are enjoying the look we were aiming for, thanks to you. Roger had thought of scanning a digital photo to you, unfortunately he has not had the time to get at it. If you would like one, let us know. Thanks again. We will definitely give out your company's name to those who ask where we got these beautiful inside window shutters.
