In this article, Viking Blinds – with four convenient locations in St. Louis Park, Maple Grove, Woodbury, and Burnsville, Minnesota (MN) – is here to help you decide which material would be best for your custom plantation shutters. We proudly carry the full line of Hunter Douglas window treatments.
Adding plantation shutters to your windows is the perfect way to add character, comfort, and a classic touch to any room in your home. Plantation shutters can transform any window into something special, while offering optimal privacy and light control. Hunter Douglas shutters are made for beautiful aesthetic, as well as durability and internal climate control. Hunter Douglas makes their shutters with three distinct materials that can each give your custom shutters something unique.
Heritance® Hardwood shutters offer the most classic and vintage look, but are made with modern ingenuity. The shutters are constructed in a dovetail shape, giving the natural material durability against heat and moisture. Made with genuine hardwood, these Hunter Douglas shutters come in your choice or stains that show off the rich texture and tones of the natural wood, or paint options that still let you see the texture of the wood while allowing you to pick just the right color for any space.
Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ shutters take the classic design of plantation shutters and add modern touches that give them a sleek, clean look, and incredible durability. These Hunter Douglas shutters are made with the Polysatin™ material, which is guaranteed to never break, crack, or warp due to hot or humid weather extremes.
Palm Beach™ shutters are also now available with the revolutionary Powerview Motorization operating system. This innovative system allows you to electronically control your Hunter Douglas shutters from anywhere in the world with either the Powerview® app on your smartphone or tablet, or with the Pebble® Remote control. You can even control your custom shutters with your voice by integrating the app with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. The UV protection abilities of Palm Beach™ shutters combined with Powerview Motorization can help you create an ideal setting of safety, comfort, and convenience in your home.
The NewStyle® Hunter Douglas shutters combine the properties of hardwood and synthetic materials to give you a great low-luster hardwood look that has the additional durability and longevity of modern materials. These custom shutters come in your choice of stains to accentuate the look of the low-luster wood, or paint colors to help you color your shutters to your liking. This option gives you beautiful custom shutters at an approachable price.
Hunter Douglas shutters are highly versatile and can be fitted to multiple types of windows. Available specialty shapes include arches, trapezoids, ovals and circles, hexagons and octagons, bay and corner windows, sliding glass doors, French doors, and cut-outs. If you have uniquely shaped windows in your home, your custom shutters from Hunter Douglas will fit right in.
