Plantation Shutters are incredibly popular in Phoenix, AZ and one of the very best window covering solutions. Quality custom shutters are energy efficient, stylish, versatile, and extremely durable. At Southwest Blinds and Shutters we’re proud to offer our Design Home Plantation Shutter line, a full fashion shutter line. We have Design Home Faux Shutters and Design Home Wood Shutters. Here’s a little information about both lines and why you might consider faux shutters vs wood shutters and vice versa.

Design Home Poly Shutters are made from a synthetic wood material that is designed to look like wood with none of the disadvantages. Our poly shutters will not warp, crack, chip, peel, or fade even in the harshest environments. They are also waterproof, fire retardant, anti microbial, and are the most child and pet safe window treatments available. Design Home Poly Shutters are manufactured with an aluminum I beam support in the shutter louver and an aluminum support in the vertical shutter stile. Both of these enhancements allow our shutters to be manufactured wider than competitors faux shutters without warping or sagging. The shutters have a water borne baked on finish that gives it both a strong, luxurious, and kid friendly finish. Markers, crayons, dirt, and dust can easily be removed with normal household cleaners without damaging the finish. Design Home Poly Shutters are energy efficient and great at controlling the harsh Phoenix sun.

Design Home Wood Shutters are made from a proprietary wood species that is one of the strongest and lightest woods in the world. These shutters are available in over 30 different paints and stains and 15 different frame styles. Wood can be very sensitive to heat and light so it is extremely important, especially in Arizona, to not cut corners or go cheap. Cheap wood shutters are cheap because important processes are skipped and cheaper materials are used. Many companies use a lower grade wood, poor quality primer and paint, cheap staples, cheap glue, and cheap hardware to lower their costs.  Cheap shutters are typically built in garage shops that lack the equipment it takes to build fine wood furniture. Quality wood must be used.  It must be dried and stored properly before it is ever cut and finished. All of our wood shutters are kiln dried to a specific moisture content. The wood is then inspected for straightness. The factory is state of the art and uses the very best machinery to create shutters that are uniform and beautiful. Shutters are inspected thru every phase of the build process for exactness and any flaws or defects that would detract from the finish.  Once the shutters are built, they are painted or stained using a 6 step process of priming, sanding, and painting creating a super smooth finish. We’re very proud of the beautiful shutters that we install everyday around the valley. Some of the unique features include mortise and tenon joinery, German staples with flare outs, and recessed magnets.

We are extremely pleased with our whole experience with this company. From sales to installation, everyone we dealt with was courteous and professional. They delivered exactly as promised from the quote, to the installation and did a great job! The shutters took our house from beautiful to stunning! Highly recommend this company!
Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.
The entire experience was excellent. We had roller shades installed throughout our home. The online notification system after your order is great. We received regular email updates regarding the status of the fabrication of our order, delivery, and installation.
Southwest Blinds was wonderful to work with. The communication was excellent. All the employees from sales to the installers were professional and kind. Answered all our questions. I highly recommend them.
Southwest Blinds and Shutters provided a remarkable product for a great value! We are extremely pleased with the job done. James is a true professional who stands behind his company on all levels. We would highly recommend Southwest Blinds & Shutters and are looking forward to having the rest of our windows done with them.
Fast and professional. Super efficient and detail-oriented. Very pleased with the service they provided. Don’t hesitate to schedule them for your blind and shutter needs.
They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.
This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!
The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
