The timeless elegance of wooden shutters adds instant charm and sophistication to any kind of property. But when it comes to choosing the right material, faux wood shutters often raise questions. Are they just cheap imitations, or do they offer genuine benefits?
In this blog, we will delve into the pros and cons of faux wood shutters, helping you to make an informed decision about your next investment.
Faux wood shutters are a great alternative to real hardwood shutters. They are made from a solid core composite material that looks very similar to real wood. In addition, they have many of the same benefits as real wood shutters including durability, versatility, and energy efficiency. Faux wood shutters come with a realistic wood grain texture and are available in many different colours and customisation options, which makes it easy for them to match your home’s décor.
Faux wood shutters offer numerous benefits. Let’s take a closer look at some of them:
At Emerald, we provide premium faux wood shutters to homeowners in the South West. Our shutters come in a variety of styles including café style, tier-on-tier, full height, and tracked.
Our café style shutters are designed to cover only the lower section of the window, offering excellent privacy while allowing natural light to come in. Additionally, our tier-on-tier shutters consist of two sets of panels that sit on top of each other, providing complete control over natural light, privacy, and view.
Our full height shutters, one of the most popular styles, are designed to cover the entire window height. You can also operate one-third or half of them independently. We also offer tracked shutters that slide open and back for easy access which makes them a great choice for patio doors.
If you’re interested in getting custom shutters for your home, we’ve got you covered! Our shutters can be tailored to meet your exact preferences, including your choice of colour. We offer two distinct colour ranges for faux wood shutters – the De Montfort range and the Eleanor range. Our shutters are built from a solid composite material that features a reinforced aluminium core, which means they’re incredibly durable. Plus, we offer a 10-year guarantee on all of our shutters.
