Maple Wood Plantation Shutters

Maple Plantation Shutters For The Month Of May

Highlighting The Natural Beauty Of Maple Plantation Shutters

Our team at Kirtz® Shutters has been plenty busy this spring season with attending various Home & Garden shows where we’ve had the chance to share many details about our custom shaped plantation shutters, our variety of hardwoods, and the high quality construction of each shutter. At the beginning of this month, we felt it would be lovely to highlight the powerful, fine quality of Maple plantation shutters.

When thinking about Maple wood, the top adjectives that come to mind for us would be the following:

  • Lustrous  
  • Diverse 
  • Strong
  • Solid  

Why do these words come to mind you might ask? The answers are simple and we’ll explain the reason we chose each of these descriptive words!

(1.) Lustrous: the word “lustrous” describes Maple plantation shutters due to the wood being known for its closed, smooth grain and this hardwood’s ability to easily accept paint and finishes well. It truly has a luster that only a fine wood can provide!

(2.) Diverse: the word “diverse” explains how Kirtz® Shutters can offer so many unique looks to each customer due to the nature of custom plantation shutters business. The flexibility of Maple wood has few limitations which truly allows us to help achieve the look you desire.  

(3.) Strong: Maple is a dense wood with a hard surface which means that it can withstand accidental bumps and is resistant to indentations. The durability provided by Maple plantation shutters makes for a long-lasting, beautiful window treatment option!  

(4.) Solid: Since Maple is dense it makes it possible for metal fasteners to maintain a solid hold. Furthermore, the tilt rods and louvers on Maple plantation shutters can effortlessly open and close without becoming loose. 

At Kirtz® Shutters one of the most popular details most customers have chosen to add to Maple wood is a clear finish as it really shows off the natural beauty of the grain. Of course, we’ll let you decide! If you’re in the market for new shutters, we’d love to help make your custom project become a reality. To get started, give us a call at 1-800-416-6455 .
