While vinyl shutters are an economical option when looking to add shutters to a home, they’re basically molded imprints of popular shutter styles like panel, louver, and board & batten. You’ll find them in limited sizes to accommodate standard windows, which doesn’t accommodate ALL window sizes. They do their job when it comes to adding a bit of style, but fall short when it comes to sizing and overall detail.
When Deanna purchased her home it had black vinyl exterior shutters that were ill-fitting and began fading quickly. After a few short years, she was tired of the vinyl shutter look and was ready to give her home a much-needed makeover. Thankfully, she got in touch with Adorned Openings.
After doing some research on different shutter materials, Deanna elected to go with composite wood shutters to provide a more substantial look while allowing her to personalize them to fit her home perfectly. When it came to picking a shutters style, her home originally had panel shutters on both floors but she wanted something a bit different, so panel shutters on the first floor and louver shutters on the second floor were a must.
Next on the list was finding the right shutter color. Deanna knew black shutters had to go and felt that an Old Essex shutter finish would add the right amount of flair to her home that would create harmony with her landscaping.
Out with the old and in with the new! Removing the flimsy vinyl shutters didn’t take much time at all. As you can see, the rich, lustrous shadow lines these composite shutters present when the light hits them is truly priceless.
