Types of Interior Custom Shutters

When considering interior shutters for your home, there are a few things to keep in mind when selecting materials and finishes. Hunter Douglas simplifies the process for homeowners and designers by offering three product lines that come in three basic types of materials: time-honored hardwood, hybrid and Polysatin™. Each type of shutter is designed for quality, lasting finishes, and durability, and each line comes with the Hunter Douglas Limited Lifetime Guarantee.

Hardwood Shutters

Heritance® Shutters are the classic hardwood plantation style shutters from Hunter Douglas. These shutters are crafted using real hardwood, which allows for strength and durability while bringing the warmth and beauty of natural wood into your home. Dovetail joinery in the Heritance® shutters ensures the frames will not separate, creating light gaps that detract from the shutter appearance and function.

Heritance® natural wood shutters are available in a large selection of stains and colors to compliment any décor or match existing wood or furnishings in your home as well as offering 99% UV protection for your furniture, artwork and flooring when the louvers are closed. Choosing Heritance® hardwood shutters also offers the superior insulating properties of natural wood, making them ideal for living spaces that are used most often.


NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters are stylish, versatile and quite innovative. Hybrid plantation style shutters combine the beauty of natural wood with the strength and resilience of advanced modern day materials to create a classic and durable window covering. Each NewStyle® shutter uses a natural wood frame with the same dovetail joinery from the Heritance® hardwood collection.

A smooth finish polishes off the faux wood portions of the shutter giving a natural wood shutter look. NewStyle® hybrid shutters are coated with a Finetech Finish coating that is designed to repel dust. Care is as simple as dusting with a soft, dry cloth. The hybrid option allows you to enjoy high quality shutters at a more affordable price. NewStyle® hybrid shutters are available in several different color and finish variations and provide 99% UV protection for your interior furnishings when the louvers are closed.


Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters from Hunter Douglas are plantation style shutters made with a UV resistant Polysatin™ compound. That will never warp, chip, peel, discolor or crack, regardless of moisture, even with prolonged exposure to heat and sunlight. They also clean up brilliantly with mild soap and water. These features make the Palm Beach™ shutters ideal for bathroom and kitchen windows, and in any room in high humidity climates. Another interesting feature of the Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters is the Polysatin™ finish causes these shutters to be scratch and dent resistant. They will never need sanding, re-painting or re-finishing.

These shutters are reinforced in major stress points with interior aluminum bracing and resin blocks, adding strength and durability, which keeps them for bending or bowing especially over large, wide windows. As with all of the other Hunter Douglas shutter products, the Polysatin™ collection also provides 99% UV protection to the interior of your home when the louvers are in the closed position.
