If you enjoy the beauty of wood shutters but need additional humidity resistance, we at DM Interiors & Design suggest Hunter Douglas composite shutters. These stunning faux wood shutters are a triumph of beauty and engineering that we guarantee will be a lovely addition to your home. No matter what type or shape of windows you have, we can help you find the right shutter that will fit perfectly and provide the lighting and privacy you need.

Why Choose Composite Shutters?

Hunter Douglas composite shutters combine the beauty of hardwood shutters with the lasting power of polypropylene construction. These faux wood shutters are resistant to moisture, mold, and mildew. They also feature specialized Crosslink™ construction that helps them resist warping and bowing. This makes Hunter Douglas composite shutters an ideal choice for humid climates or rooms that are rich in moisture.

Composite shutters are easier to clean than hardwood shutters, but their similar design aesthetic and finish options can make them look almost identical. This allows you to mix and match hardwood and faux wood shutters to use the best products for each window and maintain a unified aesthetic look throughout your home. Hunter Douglas calls this their Whole House Solution™, and they offer this coordinated look with several of their window treatment options.

Hunter Douglas Composite Shutter Styles

NewStyle® Composite Shutters

NewStyle® shutters feature the same Truemill® dovetail joints and stain options as Hunter Douglas hardwood shutters. They are built to last and have several style options that set them apart. When choosing faux wood shutters, you can select a wood stain and an Ultragrain™ Finish, which mimics the look of natural woodgrain. These shutters can also be painted in several shades of white and off-white. Choosing one of these neutral tones can help open up your space, and shades of white are perfect for both a modern and classic look. Your white shutters are also more easily seen from the street, which can increase your home’s curb appeal and resale value.

One option available with NewStyle® Composite Shutters that you won’t see in other Hunter Douglas shutters is the SoftClose® tilt operating option. As you will find on drawers and cabinet doors, this tilt option automatically and gently closes the louvers of your composite shutter once they have reached a preset angle. This means you don’t need to sweep your hand across the entire shutter to close the louvers completely.

This operating option makes composite shutters an excellent choice for larger windows where reaching all louvers can prove challenging. SoftClose™ louvers also have the Quick Alight™ feature. This feature creates five different preset louver positions that allows you to feel the faux wood shutters click into place as you rotate them. The preset positions are excellent for light and control, and they also make it easy to unify the look and angle of multiple composite shutters all across your home.

Composite Shutter Operating

In addition to the exclusive SoftClose® tilt operating, NewStyle® Composite Shutters share both opening and tilt operating options with both Hunter Douglas hardwood and vinyl shutters. You can choose the bi-fold track, which hinges and slides to the side of your window frame. The bypass track option allows the composite shutter panels to slide side to side and pass each other, which is an ideal choice for sliding glass doors. Traditional hinged panels are the most common opening operation as they simply swing open. As far as tilt options, the two available options that aren’t SoftClose™ are an easy-to-grasp Front Tilt Bar or the HiddenTilt™.
