From Almost to Just Right

A monochrome world would be a dreary place. That’s why Marco Shutters offers custom color matching for painted shutters. We will custom-match your painted shutters to your room’s color palette. Taking the guesswork out of color matching for window coverings is one of our specialties.

This opens wide the doors of creativity. No matter what the predominant color in your room, we can match it with the same color, or a complimentary or contrasting color. Really, your imagination is the limit when it comes to color choice for painted indoor shutters.

Some big box stores offer only three shutter paint options – pearl, white and cream. Others offer only white. Anyone who has ever tried to re-paint their white walls knows that there are dozens of shades of white – and it’s almost impossible to match on your own. Marco Shutters comes to the rescue to find the perfect shade for you. Classic white shutters and painted shutters – no matter what the shade – are a snap when you buy custom painted shutters from Marco Shutters.

Elegance, privacy and energy savings are the hallmarks of our custom indoor window shutters. Isn’t it nice to know you can also get them in any color? Look at our gallery for inspiration. Then, give us a call at (402) 778-5818 to set up your free consultation. Measuring is free, too.

The Story Behind the Shutters

If you think of Mint Juleps and Southern drawls when you hear the word “plantation”, you’re not wrong. Its Southern living we have to thank for Plantation Shutters. The subtropical climate of the southern United States with its heat and humidity created the need for window coverings that would allow for light filtration and air flow.

Despite the fact that Scarlett O’Hara had a dress made from drapes in Gone With The Wind, those heavy fabric window coverings fell out of favor. Thus, shutters became the method used to control light and ventilation. They were painted white to reflect the sun’s rays. Today, they can be found in nearly any color or stained in many species of wood.

Some shutters lore says that shutters were created in Ancient Greece and were originally made of marble, making shutters a sign of wealth or royalty. Other stories say that the Spaniards introduced shutters to the American South. However they came to be, we think they were an inspired idea.

What makes a shutter a Plantation Shutter? The wide slats are their hallmark. Traditional Shutters, predominantly used in the Eastern United States during Colonial times, have narrow slats. Most modern manufacturers make louvers in many widths. Marco Shutters offers louvers in widths of 2.5”, 3.5” and 4.5”.

Today, an idea that originated hundreds or perhaps thousands of years ago is still one of your best choices for energy savings and light control. It’s clear that the efficiency of shutters has stood the test of time. Why not apply this ancient wisdom in your home?

We make our shutters in our own factory, not in the South, but in Papillion, Nebraska. Find a piece of American history and energy efficiency with our Custom Wood Plantation Shutters.

A Little Smack Talk

What do you hear every time you close your sliding glass door? Is it the clatter of vertical blinds smacking the glass? As the weather warms up, you’re going to want to open those doors again. It’s time to re-think the window covering for your sliding glass door. Marco comes to your rescue with custom shutters for sliding glass doors.

Our bypass plantation shutters are custom made to eliminate clatter and smack. Unlike noisy (and outdated) vertical blinds, our shutters fit tightly against the glass. Secured at the top and bottom, these shutters will never clatter as the door is opened or closed.

A header conceals the shutter rails, giving a clean and finished look. Best of all, our patio door shutters can be stained or painted to match your decor.

Marco Makeover: Custom Shutters for a Downtown Condo

If we break it down to its most basic elements, a window is a hole in a wall with a glass covering. That’s just plain ugly, so custom shutters can come to the rescue to add security, temperature control and beauty to the window. Dressing a window with shutters is our preferred way to make an attractive statement!

But, what if your wall is over 100 years old and is a non-standard shape and size? The side windows in this Old Market condominium space are curved on the left and right. Standard shutters wouldn’t do.

Marco was up to the task for this challenge because we make all of our shutters in our own factory. We began by making templates to custom-fit the windows. Then, we brought the templates back to the shop and fabricated the shutters. On the third trip, we took the shutters down to the Old Market condo and custom-fit them by sanding them on site. Our makeover for dressing a window with shutters was well on the way to completion.

Then, it was back to the shop, where we put on the final coats of finish. On the final trip we installed them for a perfect result!

No matter what window shape or size, Marco has the solution for the custom plantation shutters you need. These shutters were made of alderwood, but Marco works with many American hardwoods, such as walnut, maple, cherry, mahogany or oak. These are stained to match your decor. And, if you need painted shutters, we make those, too.

Call Marco Shutters today at (402) 778-5818. We offer free measuring and free consultation. No matter what your window shape or size, we have a solution for you.

The Wonders of White

White has mystical properties. It allows you to accent the texture of items in a room. It acts as a neutral balance for any color, and can act as a counterpoint to dark colors, providing contrast. Far from being a stark color, white can take on a warm feeling when paired with natural textures. Many say it’s the perfect choice for accenting any style – whether you are looking for classical, tropical, contemporary or formal design.

In these photos, we show white painted shutters lending an elegant air when paired with drapes. The arch-top window is a perfect example of classical design paired with contemporary furniture. Bypass shutter patio doors ad a crisp look to a kitchen with a walk-out patio. And finally, French Doors get an upscale look from white shutters.

One major paint manufacturer has 50 shades of white, but we focus on the top eight shades in our custom white palette.

Best of all – white  wood shutters are on sale now through February 15, 2019.  All painted white wooden shutters are 10% off. Select from our palette of eight custom white colors.
