Heritance® Hardwood Shutters bring an unmistakable rich and warm atmosphere to any room in your home with the use of genuine hardwood. Adding the natural look of the wood grain and texture is sure to add a cozy and calm feel to your home while adding a degree of elegance. Heritance® Hardwood Shutters are made with poplar and basswood and are crafted using dovetail construction to bolster structure and add to their durability. By using quality materials and expert methods, these wood shutters will be able to stand the test of time.

Hunter Douglas also offers many customization options to make your wood shutters unique to you. You can choose from a wide range of stain colors to show off the natural elements of the wood in just the right tone for your home. There are also plenty of solid paint colors available for you to be able to match or create any color scheme you choose. These paints will still maintain the genuine wood texture of your shutters as well.

To add to the classic feel of your hardwood shutters, Hunter Douglas offers a variety of custom vintage details that you can add to your Heritance® Hardwood Shutters. You can apply glaze stains to the grooves to make them stand out and add texture to your wood shutters. These glazes are available in cocoa, arctic, or ebony. You can achieve an aged look by adding sanded and burnished corners, which use a high-quality glaze. To give your shutters a distressed appearance, there are several custom distressed details you can add, including dents, cracks, and wormholes. You can also accentuate natural features with the construction, including knots, pinholes, and mineral streaks.

Heritance® Hardwood Shutters are surprisingly versatile, fitting into a wide range of window shapes. Available specialty shapes for these wood shutters include arches, hexagons and octagons, trapezoids, and much more. To add wood shutters to your sliding-glass door, you can use the Bypass Track, which lets you slide one side of your shutters past the other for a quick transition outside.
