Interior Shutters that will Look Great in Your Kitchen

Shutters are a great investment to make in your home. They are beautiful, yet durable. They can maintain their attractiveness for as long as you’re in your home and will last a lifetime with minimal care. They can also improve your home's resale value when you decide to sell. At Eclipse Shutters, we’re so confident in the durability of our faux shutters that we offer a 25-year warranty.

Consider Faux Shutters for Your Kitchen

While faux shutters make a beautiful addition to living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms, some people don’t think of them for the kitchen. However, their unique qualities make them the perfect window treatments for one of the busiest rooms in most homes.

Moisture Resistant

Quality faux shutters are terrific for rooms like kitchens, as well and bathrooms, where they will be exposed to moisture from steam, water and spills. They are moisture resistant, so they won’t mildew, warp, crack or rust. They’re also perfect for our hot, humid Atlanta summers. You can leave the windows and shutters open to allow in fresh air. When the house is closed up in the summer and the air conditioner is running, they can help keep out hot air that can seep in and can drive up energy costs.

Easy to Clean

Because they just need to be wiped off with mild soap and water, you don’t have to worry about spills or splashes while you’re making your favorite family meal. Faux shutters can also stand up to all the activity that goes on in the kitchens of busy families.

A Safe Choice for Families

Eclipse Shutters’ interior shutters are fire retardant NFPA701 Certified. Our interior shutters are GREENGUARD Gold certified and listed on GREENGUARD's website for microbial resistance, so they resist the growth of mold and mildew. That helps keep your family safe from bacteria that can lead to viruses and exacerbate respiratory conditions.

Shutters for Doors

If your kitchen opens onto a patio, bi-fold or by-pass faux shutters are the perfect solution. They lend an air of elegance to your kitchen, provide privacy when you need it and hold up to fingerprints and other everyday grime. Eclipse Shutters is proud to offer the new UltraSatin™ finish that gives our faux wood shutters the look of real wood without painting and other maintenance that goes along with it. Our neutral colors, Cotton, Pearl and Vanilla, go well with any kitchen color and decor.
