Wood Shutters or Not Wood Shutters, that is the question I get every day here at Villa Blind and Shutter. Let’s talk about that question, all the for’s and against. Both sides are equal in most people’s mind, so we will start by saying a great company should offer both, which we do. In our Shutter Design process we show both panel samples, the Wood (also called the Basswood) and the Composite (also called Hybrid) so that you can see, touch and feel each.
The Onyx Basswood Plantation Shutter Vs. the Norman Woodlore Shutters. Both are like young children to me, I love them both equally. I can only make comments and help you determine the best material for you and your home. Some customers have made these comments on the finish. The Onyx with its beautiful painted finish has a high gloss look that is smooth and looks like fine furniture. On the other side people often say the Norman Woodlore has a coating that looks less shiny, they like the dullness.
One thing is certain, you will not see the difference Online looking at Photos. Invite a Villa Designer over for a Free IN-Home Design Process and written Estimate. And put some coffee on, I like mine Black.
