If you are considering installing interior shutters in the windows of your home, you’ve probably looked at the beautiful wood shutters that are available. They are gorgeous – and they are also very expensive. You can of course choose a less expensive material such as PVC or plastic, but those are not nearly so attractive and tend to look cheap.
Ideally, you want to keep cost down, and maximize your quality. You can do this easily by finding a company that sells individual discount wood panel shutters at wholesale prices. These panels can be installed in any type of configurations. You will be looking for DIY, or Do It Yourself, shutters.
Before you go shopping for these DIY discount shutters, you need to keep a few things in mind. The most critical of these is which material is used in the shutters.
The highest quality wood for shutters is basswood. This has several characteristics that make it ideal. It is a very hard wood, and does not generally distort. The wood has a fine texture, and the grain is nearly indistinct. This makes it very easy to paint or stain.
You’ll want to figure out how you will be mounting the panels before you purchase the shutters. You may need to order hardware, or attach the shutters to hanging strips on the outside of the window opening.
