Plantation Shutters

There are many types of window treatments available from Hunter Douglas. Prior to beginning a window treatment upgrade, you need to consider your space, the size, and shape of your windows – as well as the look you are trying to create in your home.

Shutters are an excellent option and are classified as a hard window treatment. That means they are:

  • Built into the frame of your window
  • have adjustable horizontal slats that control the light
  • Usually made out of wood or a polyresin

Types of Hunter Douglas Shutters

Heritance Window Shutters

For traditionalists and admirers of classic Southern style, we present our Heritance® Hardwood Shutters. These wooden shutters are the peak of craftsmanship and made from 100% natural hardwood—either basswood or poplar—and boast everyday beauty and long-term performance. Customize your own color or choose from more than 35 available finishes.


  • Genuine Hardwood – Heritance shutters are made from rapidly renewable, 100% genuine basswood or poplar hardwood.
  • Integra™ Finish – This finish is applied in a multi-coat process to create high luster and long-lasting durability, so the shutters require minimal care.
  • Superior Craftsmanship – Truemill® dovetail construction is one of the strongest and most structurally sound methods for holding panels together, as components are tightly interlocked. Competitors use alternative methods, such as standard dowel construction, which instead relies on glue.
  • Endless Color Possibilities – Choose from a selection of paints and stains, or customize your own color to match your existing décor.
  • Handcrafted Series – This decorative series blends the natural elegance of genuine hardwood with custom artistry. A selection of designer finishing techniques provides new ways to accentuate the inherent character and color of natural wood.
  • Specialty Shapes – A diverse range of specialty shapes with sunburst or horizontal louvers is available to create the ultimate custom shutter for your home.
