Composite Shutters let you experience the elegance of natural wood shutters in rooms that require more durability or cost-effective solution.
Faux wood shutters (aka composite shutters) are interior shutters constructed from synthetic polymers or PVC. Many people use the terms “faux wood,” “composite,” and “vinyl shutters” interchangeably. These plastic shutters weigh heavier than genuine wood shutters, but they are also extremely durable, which is a beautiful advantage. Just like plantation shutters, faux wood shutters case the entire window and usually swing out from a hinge to allow access to the window or to allow maximum light to come in.

The most significant advantage of the faux wood shutter is, most notably, the price. Faux wood plantation shutters are less expensive, and the production cost is considerably less than that of custom wood shutters. This type of indoor shutter can be used in every house without considering the environmental impact on the shutter. For example, we would recommend composite wood shutters to be installed in a bathroom or laundry room with a higher moisture potential. Moisture in the air would likely warp a real wood shutter, but a faux wood shutter will stand up nicely for many, many years.

One of the disadvantages of faux wood is the material’s weight, which may cause mechanical failure from wear on the lift mechanism. Overall, faux wood shutters are functional, reasonably priced, and aesthetically pleasing alternative window treatments to real wood shutters.
Unlike wood shutters, composite shutters can be installed in high-humidity rooms like bathrooms and kitchens without fear of warping. They are available in a wide array of colors to match any décor and can be anywhere from 30-60% cheaper than real wood shutters, making them the more affordable option.
Anywhere from 10 to 25 years is a typical lifespan for interior vinyl shutters. During these decades, homeowners benefit from the minimal care required: just a light dusting now and then is usually enough to keep your shutters in good condition! Composite shutters are UV resistant, so they hold up to direct sunlight for a long time. Plus, they’re not harmed by steam or humidity.
Composite or faux wood shutters are more affordable than 100% wood shutters. The price varies based on the materials and the size of your windows and can cost between $75 and $250 per window.
Composite shutters, sometimes called faux wood shutters, are usually made of engineered wood wrapped in a PVC or vinyl coating. Engineered wood or “composite wood” is produced by fixing wood strands or fibers with a binding agent to form the shutters’ slats. Because of the vinyl coating, composite shutters are durable and easy to clean. They can also be ordered with a wood grain appearance or in a wide range of colors.
Faux wood shutters are extremely easy to clean and maintain. Dusting the slats regularly with a dry microfiber cloth is usually as much as they need. If a deeper clean is in order, you can wipe them with a damp cloth and warm water with a little mild detergent. Ensure you know what your shutters are made of, as it can be harmful to clean real wood shutters with water.
