Basswood shutters are the longest standing range of shutters available at The Shutter Studio. Basswood is a white American hardwood that is very user-friendly and often the preferred choice for joiners who specialise in carving and shaping due to being both strong and lightweight. Many of our customers are already familiar with basswood due to it being the preferred choice for the bodies of guitars and pianos for precisely these reasons.
Although it is becoming increasing difficult to sustainably source basswood we believe that the natural characteristics make it pound-for-pound the most suitable material for plantation shutters. They are well established as a leading plantation shutter material that has withstood the tests of time.
Our basswood shutter range comes in a range of colour finishes with the option to paint in any custom colour available in our premium basswood range. Our frames can also be tailored to suit any window opening to ensure a perfect finish shutter once installed.
