Plantation Shutters: Traditional Beauty, Modernized
Ambient light and energy use are important considerations in any modern home design. Plantation shutters are one attractive, durable option. Drapery Street offers three different lines of beautiful Hunter Douglas custom shutters. All three are designed to integrate with your surroundings, as well as each other, for a unified, whole-home design. Their sheer versatility ensures they’ll complement any style.
NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters
One option that will suit both your budget and your green principles is Hunter Douglas’s NewStyle shutters. The industry’s first hybrid shutter, NewStyle offers a state-of-the-art UltraGrain™ finish that possesses the color and grain pattern of real wood. NewStyle hybrid shutters offer incredible, year-round energy efficiency, with an R-value of 6.01 and a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient of 0.17. What’s more, they’re GREENGUARD Indoor Air Certified®, so they meet strict emissions limits, keeping the air of your home cleaner and more breathable. These shutters are crafted to last. Like our top-of-the-line Heritage shutters, NewStyle showcases Truemill® dovetail construction, as well as Crosslink™ construction that will prevent your shutters from bowing or warping.
Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters
Another option to consider is the Palm Beach line. Made of outdoor-grade polysatin compound, Palm Beach shutters can withstand harsh sunlight, extreme heat, and moisture. In fact, they are guaranteed never to warp, crack, peel, fade, chip, or discolor! They offer a non-magnetic locking system, so you can use them in a humid microclimate (like a glassed-in porch or bathroom) without worries about functionality. Despite their focus on functionality in high light environments, their Duralux™ finish gives them the look of beautifully painted shutters. What’s more, the colors are designed to coordinate with the Heritance and NewStyle lines, allowing you to select varying options to meet the needs of your space while still maintaining a pleasant visual flow throughout your home.
Heritance® Hardwood Shutters
Heritance hardwood shutters have a timeless, heirloom quality that will enrich your home for many years to come. Featuring Truemill® dovetailed construction and pure seasoned hardwood, Heritance shutters are designed to withstand the test of time. Because they are a hardwood option, they offer a high level of customization. We offer 36 different stains and can match custom colors, as well. An Integra™ finish is used to create a high luster and long lasting durability, requiring minimal care.
More Customizable Features
NewStyle, Palm Beach, and Heritance shutters offer split tilt. Split tilt allows you to close the bottom half of your shutters for privacy, leaving upper slats open for light. This customizable feature is a great example of why it’s important to seek expert support for your custom shutter installation. After all, the angle at which light enters a room needs to suit the height of everyone who uses it. Ambient light is wonderful—a blinding glare is not.
All of our shutters offer a variety of installation options, including bi-fold, t-post, and even bypass designs. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the smooth and full closure, as well as the ingenious light-stop channels that provide both the look you want and the light exclusion you need. We’ll ensure your Hunter Douglas shutters are installed to the highest standards so that everything will work as it should.

You’ll also find that our team is well-versed in details that less experienced installers might miss or handle poorly. For example, when installing shutters it’s vitally important to account for the particulars of your windows, such as hand cranks or window handles.
