For those of you unfamiliar with the term, faux wood is a PVC alternative to wood that is used in products normally made with timber. Fauxwood plantation shutters couple the shutter look with the affordability, durability and low maintenance requirements of PVC and aluminium. Our faux shutters are comprised of an aluminium core that is encased by durable PVC for the sturdiest frame possible.
Where to Use
PVC shutters are designed for use in any room around the home, but are particularly suited to those wet areas (such as the bathroom, laundry and even the kitchen). This is because the aluminium core PVC slats are resistant to warping and other issues caused by exposure to moisture. We don’t generally recommend faux wood shutters for sliding glass doors, bifolds and other doorways, as they can make it difficult to access the opening.
Caring for your Shutters
Taking care of PVC window shutters is actually quite easy, as they are a relatively low maintenance option. The main thing is to ensure that you regularly dust them – the easiest way to remember is to go over them when you dust or vacuum the rest of your home. Run a microfibre cloth along each of the slats or use the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. For spot cleaning faux wood shutters for windows, a water and mild detergent solution can be used.
