Pelmets - Adds a finishing touch to any window treatment! A pelmet is used as a 'fixture' or ‘frame’ above a window to hide curtain fixtures, as a decorative feature. These pelmets are usually made of plywood and can either be covered in matching or contrast fabric or painted. The pelmet itself is available in different designs. For example, you could have a simple board pelmet or you could choose to have the bottom edge scalloped. You could also choose to add decorative features to the bottom of the pelmet such as braiding or tassels.read more

Generally plantation shutters are manufactured from a variety of materials, such as wood, poly (Synthetics), plastic vinyl and MDF. These are just a few that we have listed here, however there are many others. Plastic hollow vinyl are usually manufactured from an extruded hollow vinyl, since the components join together and make a light weight shutter, they are sometimes referred to as a Lego shutter. Wood shutters are usually manufactured from a variety of woods which can include cedar, basswood, poplar, alder and also a variety of other exotic wood products. However the ones that you will mostly see sold in the market place are poplar and basswood and that is mainly due to their ease of availability and price point. Poplar is generally the harder wood for use in wood shutters, however the majority of the wood shutters are manufactured from cedar, alder, basswood and other exotic wood are used in the higher quality plantation shutters, which can easily be painted or stained.
