Interior Faux Plantation ShuttersFaux Plantation Shutters?

At first it sounds like some sort of fake, decorative only shutter. While they are certainly decorative they are anything but fake. The “faux” in Faux Plantation Shutters simply means that they are not made from wood.

What are Faux Plantation Shutters made out of?

There are different materials that can be used but in our case we use an exterior grade, closed cell PVC. It will not rot, fade, chip or crack. They even come with a 25 year unconditional guarantee. An added benefit is that using this high density PVC allows for the frame and louver blades to be designed with air pockets that help insulate your home.

kitchen faux plantation shuttersHow safe are they?

Our Faux Plantation Shutters have GREENGUARD® certification for Microbial Resistance as well as Indoor Air Quality. This means they are approved for use in hospitals and schools and safe to use in your home. They also meet and exceed the NFPA 701 flammability testing for commercial and hospitality applications.

How do they compare to composite shutters?

The main difference is that composite shutters need to be painted. So even though a composite shutter may be somewhat maintenance free you will need to repaint it every few years. More if you live in a coastal region. With our Faux Plantation Shutters the color is blended right in so they never need maintenance. The 25 year unconditional guarantee even covers the color from fading or chipping.

Washington State University at Spokane has an acclaimed interior design program.
If you contact someone there, they could probably direct you to a student who would love to work with you. You'd have the benefits of cutting edge ideas in design, and someone to work with who would not charge you huge amounts per hour for design ideas.
I've had some funky experiences working wiht designers -- there are some who specialize in color.
If you have the time and the inclination, you may want to take an afternoon like this one and go look at open houses -- the kind that are designer decorated -- new model homes in your area
