Why Elgin Houses Need Interior Shutters

 
With so many Elgin homes making use of interior shutters, there have to be good reasons for it, right? Technically, there are many reasons to consider interior shutters for your home. Here’s why many homeowners are getting them:
  • Shutters are long-lasting. More than any other window treatment, shutters last and last. Where a store-bought set of blinds or designer drapes may break, warp or deteriorate in just a couple of years, shutters stand firm over time. With sound construction and heavy-duty material, shutters will be a lasting piece of your place for as long as you need them.

  • Shutters offer energy efficiency. Admittedly, blinds or shades are able to block a little outside light, but are they effective at controlling your inside heat levels? Unless you plan to purchase additional weatherstripping, energy is able to still pass through your windows without trouble. Solid plantation shutters can halve that energy movement.

  • Shutters are stunning. No other window treatment can match the timelessness, style, versatility, and wow-factor of interior shutters.

Elgin’s Best Faux Wood Shutter: Polywood

For every reason interior shutters are Elgin homeowners’ favorite window treatment, Polywood® plantation shutters provide those benefits in spades.


Built from a unique solid engineered compound, Polywood shutters are completely insusceptible to chipping or cracking, and will never bend or warp. They’re definitely the most durable shutter you can find in Elgin. In addition, they’re completely moisture-proof and heat-resistant, so they’ll survive the worst storms.

Polywood shutters can be bought in an array of white and off-white tones, with available wood-like stains for a darker and richer tone. Their classic design, broad louvers, and clean lines make Polywood shutters a gorgeous part of any home, regardless of the style or era in which it was built.

Our patented Polywood material, with the custom weatherstripping that’s included with our shutters, makes Polywood plantation shutters easily the most energy efficient window covering out there. Polywood shutters can prevent up to half of the energy loss through your windows, which means lower utility bills for you.

The cherry on top, Polywood shutters are made right here in the USA.

Get Natural Looks with Elgin’s Favorite Wood Shutters

There is no window covering that can offer the same sense of backstory, character, and richness as natural wood shutters. In Elgin, the best wood shutters are Sunburst’s Ovation® wood shutters. While other wood shutters tend to be hollow, Ovation wood shutters are constructed from 100% furniture-grade teak. That gives you not only the natural beauty that only hardwood furnishings can, but also the assurance that your shutters will keep their looks for years and years.


Ovation hardwood shutters are a breeze to match to your existing trim or hardwood floors in your space, too. With over 30 different wood finishes to choose from, there’s nowhere in your house they can’t look fantastic in.

Sunburst also offers reclaimed wood shutters in Elgin. Each reclaimed wood shutter is constructed from repurposed lumber from across America, and each individual shutter pane brings its own story and character to your design.
