Horizon stainded shutters are constructed from hand-selected solid basswood for uniform grain and homogeneous appearance. Once assembled they are dipped, hand rubbed, sealed, sanded, and protected with two clear top coats for a beautiful smooth durable finish.

Select from nine standard stain colors, ranging from very light to dark brown. All tones enhance the wood grain.

If the tone required is outside of our standards, custom colors are available.

Standard Stained Shutters:

Factory finished stained shutters from Horizon are unsurpassed. Our wood shutters uniformly absorb stain resulting in consistent tones with rich grain patterns. The furniture quality finish is achieved with the addition of a sprayed satin top-coat increasing the durability, enhancing the appearance, and giving a ultra-smooth feel. No window covering can compare to natural stained wood shutters. Basswood has relatively light grain which typically blends very well with other woods surrounding the window. Shutters are fully assembled and sanded before they are sprayed to cover all surfaces.

Our standard sample stain colors are provided on paper. This ensures that all samples are consistent with the master copy in our finishing department. Samples provided on wood could easily vary from one sample to the next. Paper samples ensure that all parties are viewing the same color. Our paper samples are high definition resulting in an adequate sample for selecting the final color.

Horizon has the most friendly and helpful sales staff. I needed a size adjustment after I placed the order and it was done promptly. The stain color samples were accurate, and the stained shutters matched the wood trim just right.

We installed three Horizon shutters in our family room last week. The shutter frames went together easily; they installed great; and they look beautiful. They were stained perfectly, and the fit and finish is as good as I've seen anywhere. Soon, we'll order three more. Horizon worked carefully with us on the phone in getting measurements and determining our precise requirements. The delivered product exceeded our expectations. My wife and I will buy from Horizon again. We highly recommend their product and appreciate the good pricing; as-promised delivery time; and attention to detail. Horizon even sent a small can of the stain that was used.

Your shutters are the best I've ever seen - the quality of the materials and the stained finish are flawless. Even the incidental things such as your excellent website and the sturdiness of your packing and delivery system are exceptional. We are very impressed - thank you!

Excellent service, high quality. A little nervous to buy shutters on the web, but we were very happy with the product. Fit is perfect. Extremely easy to install! Included was a small can of touch up stain. Shutters were expertly packed. They look beautiful, and we would order again anytime.
