The Signature Shutters Installation Timeline

Deciding on a window treatment for your home can be a complex process but at Signature Shutters we make it simpler by providing you with ample treatment options, using our decades of experience to guide the design and taking any input you might have very seriously. Once you know what direction you want to go in, the whole process can be broken into four steps…
  1. Pre-Planning
The first phase of a shutter installation is the planning or pre-planning phase. This refers to the decision-making time that has to occur before the shutters can be made and installed. For this part of your window treating journey, you may want to shop around and examine some model window treatments in person. You can do this at any one of our five Signature Shutters showroom locations! You’ll need to decide what sizes and shapes you’d like your shutters to be and you’ll have to pick out stain and paint. To determine all these things, in addition to looking at some shutters in real life, you should think about the room’s décor, the room’s function and the function of the shutters themselves i.e. filtering light vs. blocking it completely.
  1. Custom Construction
Some plantation shutter makers cut the shutters to size from pre-made stock. To ensure long lasting beauty, we select only the finest kiln dried lumber to reduce warping, assemble components in a way that prevents separation and use solid non-fingerjointed hardwoods to eliminate sap bleed and cracking. Our measure-and-cut competitors are often the very same companies that use flimsy materials and even flimsier wood dowels to fasten their shutters together. Our shutters are custom made to your specifications using master [...]

What Sets Signature Shutters Apart?

We often sing the praises of plantation shutters in general. Nearly every plantation shutter on the market will add beauty, privacy and natural light control to whatever window it covers. When you’re ready to pick out plantation shutters for your home, it’s important to know what makes Signature Shutters the best shutters out there. We believe that our careful craftsmanship, our willingness to customize and our exceptional service, among other core values, make our window treatments greater than the standard plantation shutter product. Custom Craftsmanship Some companies just aren’t flexible with their designs. Typically, this is because their plantation shutters are mass produced and re-cut to fit different window sizes. We custom-build our shutters and we always keep our customers involved in the design process. With our plantation shutters, you’re able to pick your shutters’ shape, louver width, color, material… anything is possible thanks to our custom craftsmanship! Whatever the window shape, whatever the style, we’ll make it happen. We can construct plantation shutters for arches, round windows, angled windows and more. We’ve never told a customer that a certain shape can’t be covered with plantation shutters and we’re fairly sure we never will. For wood shutters and hybrid shutters, we even sand and finish components by hand to better bring out the natural beauty of the raw materials. Stylish Versatility Interiors experts favor plantation shutters for kitchens and casual family rooms. They use them to create a beachy, laidback looks and add a “Southern charm” to large bay windows.

    Choosing a Signature Window Treatment

Choosing a Signature Window Treatment

If you’ve got uncovered windows, there are truly limitless treatment options available to you. Knowing which treatments to choose can feel like an impossible feat. Blinds, shades, shutters and tints… who’s to say which treatment will best suit your home and your family’s needs? When it comes to treatment shopping, you should have three main concerns: light, privacy and aesthetic. Here are just a few of the wide array of window coverings we have available at Signature Shutters along with our tips for choosing what’s best for you. Shades and Shutters What’s great about both window shades and plantation shutters is that they’re adjustable. When these types of coverings are closed, they provide plenty of privacy and lighting control yet they can still be opened to let in the sunshine. While they may not offer the same level of privacy as blackout curtains, they’re perfect for family rooms, living rooms and dining areas. The thickness of the shade’s fabric will determine the amount of light that comes through it. For example, beautiful semi-sheer window treatments correspond well with spaces that only need some subtle privacy and lots of light. Really, every room needs some natural light and our specially built shades can filter in the light while still adding privacy to first floor bedrooms, guest rooms, offices and bathrooms. The amount of light that creeps in when the shutters or shades or closed is related to where they’re mounted. Mounting window treatments outside the window box blocks more light. Tinted Windows Window tint reduces glare without blocking the view. For rooms that don’t need privacy or darkness, a simple tint goes a long [...]

Plantation Shutters

At Signature Shutters, our favorite window treatment would have to be the plantation shutter and they’re sure to big in 2015. Plantation shutters are versatile, more affordable than dissertation critic writing custom drapes and they are the only window treatment that can raise the value of your home. They adjust to let in light when you need it and close tightly to block it out when you don’t. They’ve been a popular choice for window treatments for many years and still their popularity continues to grow. They’re now available in more styles, shapes and colors than ever before which helps them maintain their trendy title in the design world. When shopping for interior shutters, it’s best to buy custom shutters truly built for you rather than stock panels. At Signature Shutters, we measure windows precisely and build shutters that are the perfect width, height and weight for their new home.

Hybrid Shutters

Traditionally, plantation shutters are made up of 100% wood, from the frames to the louvers to the rails. For many, buying all wood shutters, however, can be a hefty investment. Yes, they do increase the overall value of the home but these days, faux wood options can work just as well for these purposes. We believe that hybrid shutters combine the best of what both real wood and faux wood have to offer. They feature the durability and affordability of synthetic shutter materials and the classic, natural look of real wood materials. This [...]

This Christmas, We’re Giving the Gift of Craftsmanship

Narrow-louvered, traditional “New England” shutters block the light and the view. Plantation shutters allow you to adjust the amount of natural light in a room with precise accuracy.

Plantation Shutter Customization Some companies don’t have many options in terms of window treatment design. That’s just not the Signature Shutter way. We want you to be a part of the design process. Not only can you pick the color and material of the products you purchase… With our plantation shutters, you’ll pick your shutters’ shape, width, functionality and style, too! Whatever the window shape, whatever the aesthetic, we can design the right window treatment for you. For most wide windows, two rectangular panels that open from the center or bi-fold to one side suffice for custom light and temperature control. The way your shutters work will ultimately depend on your needs, wants and windows. The most popular louver width we build is the traditional 2.5 inch width. If you have a huge room with soaring ceilings and bigger windows, the extra wide 3.5- or 4-inch louver may be a [...]

    Plantation Shutter Color Choices

Plantation Shutter Color Choices

Bright colored shutters on the outside of a home are a fairly common sight. A homeowner with truly unique style, however, may choose to add color to their indoor window treatments as well. Bright white shutters are classic and elegant, of course. But in certain spaces you may find a pure white to look glaring or even infantile. Dark colored plantation shutters add an air of sophistication to any space and other alternate colors can bring a lot of pizazz to your place. They can also absorb sunlight more than white. Here are a few of the most popular plantation shutter colors (other than white) that we have available… Black Indoor window shutters in a black finish can make a dramatic statement. They’re well suited for spaces you want kept a bit darker like basements, TV rooms and “man caves.” With the right wall color, a light color for contrast, they can even work well in bedrooms and dining rooms. Black plantations shutters in a bathroom can provide some extra privacy. Pairing them with black and white décor certainly makes for a strong impact. Wood Stains After white, the most popular plantation shutter finish we offer is probably wood grain. You can choose any stain from a whole spectrum of tree woods, from light golden pine to rich red tones and chocolate-y dark stains. Many of these finishes can have a very natural, masculine feel, ideal for cabins and cozy great rooms. On the other hand, yellow wood can have bright, youthful feel, great for cheery kitchens and kids’ rooms. Earth Tones   Plantation shutters painted in earth tones such as solid browns, greens and blues turn any space into [...]
