What to Consider When Selecting Polyclad Shutters for Your Home

Last updated 6 years ago

If you’re considering upgrading your window fixtures to polyclad shutters or another type of shutter, then you’ll need to take a few steps in preparation. There is a lot that goes into determining which shutters are best, so use the information below before selecting the right shutters for your home:

 Which Room(s) You Want to Have Shutters Installed

First, you’ll need to determine which rooms could benefit from plantation shutters. Almost all windows can be fitted with polyclad shutters, but you may only want to have them installed in your bedrooms or living room. Consider how each room will look with shutters on the windows and decide how many rooms you want to upgrade.

 The Style of Polyclad Shutters You Prefer

Next, you’ll need to choose a preferred style of Polyclad shutters for your home. This might seem like an easy decision to make at first, but there are more than 10 different styles from which to choose. For the most part, you’ll need to decide how many panels you want on your shutters. You can choose between a two-panel, three-panel, four-panel, six-panel, or eight-panel shutter style.  

The Type of Paneling You Want

Now you’ll want to determine which material you want used in the construction of your panel. You might choose poly shutters that have been sanded and painted by hand. Or, choose polyclad shutters that are made from a hardpoly panel that is covered in a poly skin for a truly elegant look that is durable and long-lasting.

The Size of Your Windows

Your last step is to measure your windows. This will help you determine how many shutter panels you need and how much you can expect to pay for your shutters.
