The Best Plantation Shutters for Homes

The Best Plantation Shutters for Homes in Eagle River, Alaska (AK) like NewStyle for Living Rooms

If you’ve lived in Alaska for any sizeable period of time, then you know that if something is still here, it’s likely been here for a while, and if it’s been here for a while, it was built to last. Our climate here is unique and a fair bit harsher than a lot of other places in the United States. Because of that, unless you want to constantly be replacing everything you own, you need to make sure that you are buying quality products and ones that are designed to be durable. With that in mind, the team at Exciting Windows! is here to tell you all about the best plantation shutters for homes in Eagle River, AK.

Heritance® Hardwood Shutters

We love wood here in Alaska. It helps us connect with our state’s unique past, both from its history of rugged pioneers, as well as the history of the Native Americans whose own unique art style has influenced contemporary Alaskan design. Because of that, authentic hardwood plantation shutters, like Hunter Douglas’s Heritance® line, can do a lot for making your home feel uniquely Alaskan. Additionally, these shutters are built using dovetail joinery, a historic method for joining wood together that is made to stand the test of time. Although wood does require some regular maintenance, there is something to be said for the fact that much of the historic Alaskan art and design that is still around was made from wood.

NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters

Although wood is truly beautiful, it is not always the ideal choice for every homeowner or every situation. Regardless of why wood is not for you, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy the beauty of wood at your windows. For these types of situations, we recommend NewStyle® hybrid shutters from Hunter Douglas. These shutters are made from a unique combination of real wood and manmade materials, essentially producing a fortified wood shutter that has all the natural beauty of wood but is better able to stand up to Alaska’s climate. These shutters are also available in a wide range of beautiful colors to match your décor.

Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters

While both the Heritance® and NewStyle® lines are made with Hunter Douglas’s high-quality craftsmanship and are built to last, there is still one other line that is truly the pinnacle of durability. While up here in Alaska we are about as far away from Palm Beach as possible, Hunter Douglas’s Palm Beach™ shutter line is still a great choice for Alaskan homes. Made from Hunter Douglas’s proprietary Polysatin™ compound, Palm Beach™ shutters are designed to withstand extreme climates, including moisture and sunlight, so your shutters will hold up just as well during the snowy winter as during the Midnight Sun.

Here at Exciting Windows!, we genuinely believe that there is a Hunter Douglas plantation shutter that is perfect for any Alaskan home. To learn more, contact us today!
