“We recently had California shutters installed in our bow window in the living room and a roller blind in our dining room. In both instances, Matthew was wonderful with suggestions and ideas. The installations were great and the results outstanding. We can’t say enough about the staff at Graham’s and Son Interiors and the final result was beyond expectations. We look forward to working with them again in the spring for flooring. Thank you!“

Maxxmar also manufactures premier grade PolySilk vinyl shutters in popular colour choices from cool whites to rich mochas.
If you want the look of wood with the strength and straightness of modern-day materials, take a look at Hunter Douglas’s NewStyle Hybrid shutters. They are a beautiful and affordable alternative to real wood shutters. Hunter Douglas also offers their Palm Beach Polysatin shutters which are made with UV-resistant Polysatin compound which is guaranteed to never warp, crack, fade, chip, peel, or discolour, even if exposed to extreme heat or moisture.
