Solid Design For Your Room
Custom Made, to Suit Your Style
There are several option of solid shutters.
The raised design sees the middle section being more decorative with a raised, molded section. This was often installed in fancier homes - it was more expensive to create and therefore was seen as a sign of wealth. Traditionally, having the panels with the raised design (where the rear of the panels also featured the raised section) was seen as a way of showing your neighbours that you were doing well!
The alternative is the simpler shaker design. This has the middle section being a flat, solid section. It is stylish and well suited to more contemporary homes and looks great in a cool off white paint.
