Shutters were originally used for security, privacy, insulation, and to block out the sun. Some had louvers that opened and closed to allow fresh air and sunlight in. Now shutters are mostly used as beautiful accents that can add drama, flair and style to your home. For the most authentic look, the width of each shutter must equal half the size of the inside of the window casing. It should look like the shutters would fit inside the casing if they were actually closed. You can even match your shutter shape to your window. For example, you should put arched shutters on an arched window casing.
At Branford Building Supplies, you’ll find Shutters in a wide array of shapes, styles, sizes and colors. If you don’t see the color you want, you can choose to paint them yourself to match or complement the colors of your home.
Decorative Accents are not meant to frame a window, but add a dramatic focal point. You can choose from a variety of shapes and sizes, such as oval, octagon, cathedral, pitched, half-round, quarter round, and more.
