In this article we introduce you to the WoodCore vinyl shutters from ShutterSMART and why they make for a classic yet affordable window covering option for your residence.
This product is one of our favorite trends in window treatments for 2015.
The vinyl coating over durable wooden core makes this a great idea for kitchen window treatments. Laundry rooms are another area that requires window coverings that are resistant to high-moisture, an issue even in the usually dry San Diego, CA climate.
Benefits of Vinyl Shutters vs. Real Wood
Most notably, vinyl shutters with a wood core offer the strength of wood for a more affordable price.
Though made from a less expensive material, it is difficult to tell the difference between real wood shutters and faux wood shutters due to the quality manufacturing techniques.
Vinyl shutters offer more resistance to weather and the elements.
Therefore, these shutters are the perfect window treatment option for bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms, or if you prefer to leave the windows open.
In situations where traditional wooden shutters may warp, vinyl coating over a wooden core keeps these window treatments looking good for many years.

Features of WoodCore Shutters
Even with their vinyl outside coating, it can be difficult to distinguish the difference between real and wood core.
WoodCore vinyl shutters are manufactured similarly to hardwood shutters, but finished with a PVC coating for better moisture resistance.
Since they are made with less expensive material, vinyl offers a more affordable option than full wood shutters without sacrificing quality or durability.
The strong, durable wooden core allows for more weight bearing capabilities, meaning the shutters can span the width of larger window spaces without bending and warping.
And, since shutters made of vinyl are free of dangerous dangling cords, they make for the perfect child safe window treatment option for homes with small children.
