•What is a Traditional Shutter?
A traditional shutter is the old style, 1¼ inch louvered shutter in a ¾ inch thick frame. It was widely used in the North Eastern region of the country where windows were small. Sometimes there were “ cafe height” shutters in kitchen windows. Other times they were full height. Windows were typically small because glass was not very insulating. The Traditional Shutters looked and operated well on small windows.* Click on the pictures for larger view.
