Known for its fine grain texture and smooth finish, Basswood timber is a hardy, yet lightweight wood that's suitable for every room in your home. Normally, wood blinds or shutters can't be installed in wet areas of the home, but basswood shutters are versatile! One of the reasons why basswood is so popular is because the grain is highly warp-resistant, meaning basswood window shutters can be installed in bathrooms or kitchens. Of course, no wood is completely warp-resistant, but the non-porous nature of basswood means they are much more durable in these environments compared to regular wood.
Basswood Shutters vs Aluminium Shutters
When it comes to choosing the material of your shutters, both aluminium and basswood are popular choices due their individual features and appearance. While aluminium is a low-maintenance, durable option that can give your home a modern feel, basswood offers a lightweight and luxurious alternative. The wood can also be stained or painted to perfectly match the decor in your home.
Basswood shutters, or timber plantation shutters as they're also called, are particularly suited to larger windows of the home, due to the wood's lightweight composition. Plus, no matter how your home is styled, we can guarantee that there'll be a colour to suit from our expansive range of shades and styles.
Caring for Basswood Shutters
Window treatments are an investment in your home, and as such, they should be taken good care of. To prevent dirt from accumulating and damaging your timber shutters, dust regularly with feather duster or soft cloth by tilting the louvres in one direction, then dusting them individually. Then, flip the louvres in the other direction and repeat. Stubborn dirt or stains can be removed by wiping a slightly damp cloth over the louvres, but only use water.
