Exterior Shutters for the Modern Home

Exterior shutters have gotten a bad rap in recent years. Perhaps it’s because they’re often immobile and badly-sized, skewing the symmetry of the home, or because they are distinctly traditional, even old-fashioned, like these:

The shutters were clearly added purely as a design element; even if they’re operable, there’s no way they cover those windows.

But shutters can be incredibly useful: operable shutters have been used for decades – maybe even centuries – to control light, shield the home from wind, tempering heat, and keeping out noise and nosy neighbors.

Modern exterior shutters provide all of the benefits of historical shutters without resorting to the tired, ubiquitous shutters that most people conjure up when visualizing shutters. They may be sliding or louvered, bifold or swinging, contrasting or designed to blend with the cladding.

Traditional? Not these!
