Louvered exterior shutter styles consist of angled or tilted horizontal slats that may be fixed or movable. Some have a solid panel at the bottom with louvers on the top half. They are great for protection and privacy and go with many architectural styles. Hardware may be hidden or exposed.
Exterior Bahama shutters look similar to the louvered shutters but the tilted horizontal slats are fixed in place. They also cover the window as a solid piece instead of two panels. They are hung on hinges at the top of the window opening, so they swing open from the bottom instead of to the side like the louvered shutter style.
Board and batten style exterior shutters are made with individual boards that run vertically. Two or three horizontal rails hold them together. The horizontal boards are known as battens. This style is traditionally chosen for Tudor style homes to add visual charm. In the past, they were commonly paired with window flower boxes.
Raised panel exterior shutter styles are solid panels that resemble the panels on a decorative door. Since they consist of a solid panel, they are one of the most protective exterior shutter styles.
Lovered Over Raised Panel is a style that is timeless. It's unique style and design will bring a warm curb appeal. With louvers at the top portion of the shutter and the raised panel at the bottom is sure to be the envy of the neighborhood.
