California Shutters and More
California shutters can make a bold and beautiful design statement for your window treatments. Sometimes generic blinds and curtains don’t quite give you the aesthetic or the privacy you desire. They may also lack the durability that your home needs. If you need a more robust option, consider installing Plantation or California shutters in your Cambridge or Kitchener area home. Windows with unique shapes such as arches or larger sized windows can also look amazing when they are adorned with high quality, custom shutters. They have thick slats and a sturdy construction that gives them all the durability and design features you require. Contact us if you are considering updating your current window treatments.
California Shutters – 2 1/2″ Louvres
The louvres are the horizontal slats that make up the shutters. The term “California” simply refers to a shutter that has 2 1/2″ louvres. The smaller louvre size of California shutters makes them a great option for smaller windows such as those found in bathrooms, smaller bedrooms, and basements.
Plantation Shutters – 3 1/2″ & 4 1/2″ Louvres
Plantation shutters usually have 3 1/2″ louvres, however, if you prefer, they can also be ordered in a 4 1/2″ size as well. Plantation shutters look amazing on larger, nearly wall height windows and doors. The larger louvres are wonderful for optimal unobstructed views. They work well on large windows and doors.
Specialty Shapes and Arches
If you have a uniquely shaped window, don’t worry. We can custom design window treatments that will beautifully enhance any shape and make it a gorgeous focal point in your room. We also offer larger sized louvres of 6 1/2″, 8″ and 10″ sizes. The larger louvre sizes are perfect for large residential, commercial, and design build projects. They can be applied to window and door spans up to 12′ wide and 24′ high.

You can choose to have your new shutters crafted from either rich, classic wood or beautiful and easy to maintain vinyl.

“Let me start by saying, I love my window treatments! Mr. Graham was very professional, easy to talk to; he talked with me, not above me, I was at complete ease. He listened to my thoughts, went through my options, and just like that – decision made. The installation crew was quite professional, friendly and efficient.
