Why solid wood shutters are the best option for your home

One of the last things a person may consider when choosing custom wood shutters is what material they should be made of. But it matters. Whether you want to paint or stain—it all makes a difference when choosing the perfect custom shutters for your home. We have considered all the options to provide you with the two best materials available. Read on to see the two wood types Clearview Shutters offers and why one of these options would be the best choice.



If you’ve decided on painted wood shutters, basswood is going to be the best choice for you. Basswood is a fine-grained, lightweight wood that will provide years of elegance and durability. Basswood can be painted to match any color in your home and is the best option when choosing to paint rather than stain.


Alder wood

Knotty alder is one of the most popular wood choices when it comes to home design. It adds a layer of depth and unique characteristics that many homeowners desire. It is also the perfect wood to stain to your preference. We can come evaluate any existing stained wood in your home to make sure your new alder wood shutters will match perfectly.

Why choose custom wood shutters over man-made materials?

We offer wood shutters for a few reasons: they’re durable, they’re elegant and they have a better return on investment than man-made varieties. We care about what we put in our customers’ homes and are proud to offer supreme craftsmanship along with high-quality options.


Whether you’re staining or painting, Clearview Shutters can provide you with the highest quality options. Our materials will provide durability to last a lifetime — or at least until your next home renovation. Let us evaluate your space and help you decide what options would work the best for your home.


Specialty shutters for uniquely-shaped windows

Buying the old victorian with the unique windows may have seemed like a good idea at the time. But now that you need window treatments, you’re probably wondering what you were thinking. Not every window is equal, and hat can be cause of a lot of headache when trying to find a solution for window treatments. Curtains are usually the first solution that comes to mind. But the shape of curtains can work against the design of a uniquely-shaped window. Luckily, specialty shutters is a great solution for this common issue. 

Read on to see why specialty shutters are the best option for your uniquely-shaped windows.


Options for oval and circle windows

Oval and circle windows are perfect candidates for custom shutters. A special type of shutter, called a sunburst shutter can fit these window shapes, giving you privacy and an elegant look that will increase your home’s value.


Specialty shutters for arched windows

For a window with an arch top, there’s not really a way to make semi-custom shades work. And curtains would most likely work against the design of the window.

Whether your window is one complete arch or has a small arch at the top of a square design, custom shutters will work best for either case. 

If you decide that the top arch of your windows doesn’t need shutters, you can always use specialty shutters on the lower portion. That way, you can show off that custom stained or leaded glass on top.


So don’t worry about what you’re going to do about your uniquely-shaped windows. Clearview Shutters has your back with a wide range of affordable options that can keep your home looking its best. We can match any color or stain in your home for the most custom look available. Contact us today for your free quote!
