Get Cozy With Stained Wood Plantation Shutters

Our recent 50-degree temperature drop from the high 90s has reminded us that autumn is coming soon. Suddenly, being cozy is important again. The warmth of wood from these stained wood plantation shutters is just the thing to create a comfortable atmosphere. Log Cabin Room With Cozy Shutters from Marco ShuttersClosed, they shut out the storm. Open, they filter the sunlight that will be coming back when this weather pattern lifts.

Our beautiful stained plantation shutters, made from real wood, are one of our finest products. They’re hand-crafted from Basswood, grown and processed in the Northwest United States. We primarily use Basswood for our shutters because it’s sturdy, but without great weight. This allows us to build custom shutter panels as wide as 36’’ with a minimal risk of warping.

Because plantation shutters fit close to the window frame, they’re also effective insulators against cold drafts and summer heat. Best of all, Marco Shutters require virtually no maintenance and have a 20-year guarantee.

If your decor calls for a different variety of wood, we have many options. American-grown cherry, walnut, maple, mahogany or oak are available for your custom shutters. Our indoor shutters can also be custom stained to match the wood in the room.

Making a Statement

Shutters for Large Windows

There’s nothing like a large window to make a statement. Large windows give large views. Whether it’s the lake, the golf course, or the rolling hills of a country view, a large window brings the outdoors inside.  But, large windows need to be covered, and that’s where Marco Shutters shines. Marco’s custom large window shutters allow you to see the view and have privacy, too.

Our custom large window shutters can be built up to 40” wide and 100” tall in a single panel.  Using American hardwoods, they’re constructed with finger-jointed louvers, which allows for them to be tilted to the desired position – and stay that way.

Louvers come in 2 1/2”, 3 1/2”, and 4 1/2” widths. There’s a special advantage to using 4 1/2″ widths – there’s 4″ between the louvers instead of 2 or 3 inches. This wider space allows for great views when you tilt open the louvers. You won’t have to swing open a shutter panel to enjoy those great views of the pool or the golf course.

Of course, your shutters have to match the inside of your home, and our custom paint-matching service will ensure that the shutters will be a perfect match to your decor.

If wood tones are your style, you can choose American hardwoods, such as walnut, maple, cherry, mahogany or oak, or other species for your shutters. The shutters can be stained to match the existing wood in your home.

All of our shutters are made locally in our own factory. Marco Shutters is celebrating its 20th year in business, so we have the expertise to fabricate custom large window shutters to the unique specifications you require. The quality craftsmanship we provide comes with a 25-year guarantee.

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.
