What Style of Panel Shutter is Right For You

We offer several styles of panel shutters that are all based on original designs. Our colonial raised panel has a deep relief to its profile which gives it a more luxurious and dramatic feel. Our traditional raised panel has a more gentle profile and is found in many kitchen cabinets made today. Our flat panel, referred to as a shaker panel or gingerbread panel, fits in with simpler, less complicated decorating styles as well as with homes with a more modernistic taste. The Philadelphia Federal style raised panel is unique in that in has 2 seperate layers of trim over top of a flat panel. This results in a recessed panel that has deep shadow lines that draws attention. Like the original Phildaelphia Federal style shutters and doors, ours has a bead detail on the back face of each panel.

Not just Raised and Flat Panels

True tongue & groove or beadboard can also be used to give your panel shutters a more distinctive look. Tongue & groove panels, floating within your shutter frames, give a more European look while our Beadboard is reminiscent of simpler times. While other shutter manufacturers take large glued up panels and rout in a v-groove or bead groove we follow the traditional approach. Each tongue & groove, as well our beadboard, is milled as an individual piece of wood just like you would find on historic homes.
