The five varieties of exterior shutters are: Louvered, raised panel, flat panel, board and batten, and Bahama. Consider the many types of shutters accessible and whether you want louvered or raised panel shutters for your house, as well as other characteristics such as size, design, security, or protection from the elements when deciding which sort of shutters to install.
- Louvered: Louvered shutters are constructed of angled slats that allow light and air through. Louvers are well-known, with a distinct look that goes with any outdoor scenery. They’re commonly used in colonial, Victorian, Italianate, and other traditional styles of homes.
- Raised Panel: A panel that rises from the bottom is a characteristic feature of this sort of shutter. The appearance of this style of shutter is comparable to that of kitchen cabinets or doors. They go well with country homes since they are rather basic in design.
- Board & Batten: A variety of shutter types exist, each with its own distinct features. The most basic form is the pair of shutters joined by a cross panel (battens), which may be horizontal or slanted across the front. These are excellent for brick and stonework siding, as well as farmhouses.
- Bahama & Bermuda: In the Bahamas, louvered shutters that are fastened to the top of a window rather than the side are known as Bahama shutters. These are frequently used in tropical regions to shelter windows against wind and snow. They also keep rooms from excessive light and strong winds.
- Flat Panel: They’re also known as shaker shutters since they feature flat, solid panels. They work well for blocking out the elements and bright lights. In terms of design, they are appropriate for any house, although country-cottage and modern homes favor them.
