And there are various ways to use it in your home. This year, you can finally have a window treatment made from reclaimed wood! Sunburst Shutters Chicago has brought reclaimed wood shutters to Chicago after years of research and development, and in partnership with Stikwood. These exclusive wood shutters combine the functionality of a plantation shutter with the beauty of the outdoors. And the effect is a piece of art right on your windows. The wooden louvers are naturally curved, reflecting decades spent as part of a barn, building, or fence. The holes, knots, and marks are hallmarks of reclaimed wood that make this window treatment so enchanting to homeowners in Chicago. And just like other plantation shutters from Sunburst, reclaimed wood shutters are fully functional, with louvers that tilt to control for brightness and view.
