Faux wood shutters are interior shutters constructed from synthetic polymers or PVC. Many people use the terms “faux wood,” “composite,” and “vinyl shutters” interchangeably.
These plastic shutters weigh heavier than genuine wood shutters, but they are also extremely durable, which is a beautiful advantage.
Just like plantation shutters, faux wood shutters case the entire window and usually swing out from a hinge to allow access to the window or to allow maximum light to come in.
The most significant advantage of the faux wood shutter is, most notably, the price. Faux wood plantation shutters are less expensive, and the production cost is considerably less than that of custom wood shutters.
