Are California Shutters Still In-Style in Hamilton, Ontario?

Are California Shutters still “In Style” in Hamilton, Ontario?

I have been selling blinds for 20 years. Shutters were introduced back into the market in about 1994 (I was working in St. Catharines at the time). They have been going strong ever since.

I would have never guessed that the shutter trend would last this long but they are so damn practical, durable and even affordable that they just won’t go out of style. They can be installed in almost any application, even unique windows such as double high, arches and cut outs or reverse angled bays (see photos).

New louver sizes and colours are always being introduced by the innovative companies such as Eclipse and Maxxmar.

I sell 99% in the PVC, not wood, due to their durability. It is now pretty hard to tell the difference between wood and vinyl shutters from a distance even with a trained eye.

They even have Eco Friendly shutters and energy efficiency ratings for those “green” consumers.

Are california/plantation shutters still in-style? Yup. And I don’t see them going out of style anytime soon.
