What colors do Eclipse Shutters come in?
Eclipse Shutters are offered in three neutral color choices to enhance any décor: Cotton, Pearl, and Vanilla.
Cotton is our most popular color, while Pearl and Vanilla offer warmer tones to your interior design. All three colors are now offered in our NEW! UltraSatin finish, a revolutionary technology for Eclipse Shutters that successfully achieves the look of a premium painted shutter. Eclipse Shutters with UltraSatin finish bring elegance to any interior with the soft, matte luster of freshly painted wood and will always look as luxurious as the day they were installed.
Our hinges are available in Cotton, Pearl, Brass and Stainless Steel to match your preferred shutter color.
What is the difference between one louver size and another?Louvers for Eclipse Shutters are available in 2 1/2 inches, 3 1/2 inches and 4 1/2 inches. The wider the louver, the wider the space between louvers will be when they're fully open. Louvers measuring 3 1/2 inches provide 56% greater visibility than their smaller counterparts. Similarly, the 4 1/2 inch louvers, known as plantation shutters, provide a view that's 108% more clear than the 2 1/2 inch louvers.
How are Eclipse Shutters cleaned?Unlike wood products, it's incredibly easy to clean and care for Eclipse Shutters. When needed, simply wet a soft cloth with water and wipe the plantation shutter panels until they are free from dust. They can also be cleaned with a mild soap, though not with lemon oil or furniture polish. Since Eclipse Shutters are non-porous, these plantation shutters resist the growth of mildew and mold making them the perfect choice for kitchens, bathrooms and even nurseries.
