At Red Star Paint, our professional design team would love to assist you in choosing the perfect shutters for your home. Interior shutters are an investment in both your home’s aesthetic appeal and monetary value. Our incredible collection of Hunter Douglas shutters offers classic styles and long-term durability.
Why Choose Shutters?
A common misconception is that shutters are only an exterior component for your home, but interior shutters offer light-control, privacy, and style! Interior shutters feature a rigid frame and tiltable louvers for variable light control. Unlike shades and blinds, which can only rise to the header, shutters can be swung open completely for unobstructed views. They are also cordless, which makes them a safer choice for homes with children and pets.
Window shutters are also incredibly durable. Many consumers today are looking for more eco-friendly products, and our shutters will last 10-20 years with proper care. Once installed, they are considered a permanent fixture, which increases the value of your home.
Heritance® Hardwood Shutters
Hunter Douglas Heritance® Hardwood Shutters are the epitome of classic style and are created using the finest craftsmanship and materials available. Hunter Douglas uses wood harvested from responsibly managed forests and donates to the Arbor Day Foundation® with every hardwood product purchase. You can choose from more than 35 lustrous finishes or create your own custom color. The stain is applied using the Integra™ multi-coat process to deliver high luster.
Designer Finishing Techniques
Elevate the luxury and style of your shutters with one of the designer finishing techniques.
- Glazed: A hand-applied glaze that enhances the natural richness of the wood and is available in three colors.
- Glazed + Burnished: This creates an antiqued look by applying glaze to a hand-sanded shutter.
- Classic Distressed: This technique creates a worn appearance with intermittently placed dents, cracks, and wormholes with your choice of glaze.
- Heirloom Distressed: An heirloom distressed look is classic distressed taken to the next level. In addition to cracks and wormholes, your shutters will feature burnished edges and rasping.
- Rustic: The ideal technique for cabin-style homes. Rustic shutters feature knots, mineral streaks, and growth rings for a truly one-of-a-kind window treatment.
Heritance® Hardwood Shutters are crafted using a master woodworking technique known as Truemill® dovetail construction. This technique features interlocking components for a more structurally sound shutter than those that are held together by dowels and glue.
Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters
Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters are the perfect union of a natural wood appearance and man-made durability. These UV-resistant shutters come with a lifetime guarantee against cracking, chipping, peeling, and fading. They’re an ideal addition to bathrooms, sunrooms, and homes in hot and humid climates.
Palm Beach™ shutters feature the DuraLux™ Finish, a specialty technique that gives the appearance of an exquisitely painted shutter with a matte finish. Your faux wood shutters are built using interior aluminum bracing and resin blocks to create a window treatment with remarkable durability.
NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters
Practical, beautiful, and long-lasting are the best ways to describe NewStyle® Shutters. These window shutters are crafted from a wood composite co-extruded with a polypropylene coating to look great for years with minimal upkeep. They feature SoftClose™ louvers, a technology like one found in high-end cabinet drawers and doors. This allows the louvers to close gently and quietly after reaching a predetermined angle. The line of window shutters also comes with QuickAlign™. This feature offers five preset positions for the louvers that enable you to align all panels of louvers with easy precision. Finetech® and UltraGrain™ finishes give the low-luster, grain-like appearance of natural wood.
Caring for Shutters
Several factors, including allergies, pets, and children, contribute to how frequently your shutters will need cleaning.
Dusting Hardwood & Faux Wood
Dusting by hand is an easy, and common, way to get the job done. Simply grab a soft cloth or feather duster, start at the top of your shutters, and wipe across each louver until you reach the bottom. Then reverse the direction of the louvers and repeat the steps.
Natural wood cannot be submerged in water, nor can it be exposed to moisture for too long during cleaning. You can lightly spray a soft cloth with furniture polish to wipe the louvers and restore the surface’s shine. If your hardwood shutters are particularly dirty, you can use warm water mixed with a mild detergent to spot clean your window treatments. Have another cloth ready to immediately wipe off the soapy mixture, then dry the shutter thoroughly.
