Custom Plantation Shutters
In the search for plantation shutters, custom is a word that can have a variety of meanings. Take for example the phrase "customized shutters". A "customized plantation shutter" is typically a stock sized shutter panel, bought too big and cut down to fit your window. Although this is often a very cost effective way of treating a window with shutters, this application can result in the stile (vertical piece) of your shutters becoming various widths throughout your order, and unless done with great care could result in a stile/rail joint that has had its strength compromised. Truly custom plantation shutters are built to fit your window openings, to exacting specifications.
At Kirtz Shutters every plantation shutter is custom built. In addition to our standard custom plantation shutters, we offer the added versatility of a custom wood shop. As a result, you can order a truly unique, custom plantation shutter.
Custom Design of Plantation Shutters
Beginning with your initial contact with Kirtz Shutters, you will work directly with an experienced shutter expert who can answer your questions, and help you with the custom design of your built to order plantation shutters.
After your design in finalized, the creation of your shutters begins with the milling of raw lumber into shutter parts. Our in-house milling is critical to the custom process in two important ways.
First, it allows us to build shutters in most any wood available today; from classic American favorites, like cherry and maple, to exotics such as zebrawood and bamboo. We've worked in over 45 different wood species, and welcome the opportunity to build you a truly unique wood plantation shutter.
Kirtz in-house milling also allows an advanced degree of customization in your shutter and framing profiles. Examples of customization include shutter panel thickness, stile width, and louver size or orientation. If our standard options don't meet your needs, custom framing profiles can be designed to match the millwork in your space.
Custom Shutters from Start to Finish
The custom process doesn't end with shutter design and construction, but includes the finishing of your shutters. From custom paint and stain matches, to specialty finishes such as glazing, antiquing and distressing, the design possibilities with Kirtz Shutters are endless.
