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.
