Advantages of interior wooden shutters:
These shutters have a natural and warm appearance. As far as functionality, they are good insulators, have a high structural integrity, and are recyclable. They’re also stylish and well-designed looking, and can be painted or stained to match any number of decors. Because the frames are self-squaring, it is fairly easy to install wooden shutters. Because specialty sizes are available, there’s a good chance you can find the right shutters for your windows.
Disadvantages of interior wooden shutters:
In areas and rooms that are highly humid or are around a lot of water, moisture might be a problem. Wooden shutters might not be the best choice in a steamy bathroom, as humidy and moisture can make the wood warp, crack or split.
As with all window treatments, costs can vary greatly depending on the manufacturer, size, type of wood, and if there is a finish on the shutters (and what kind). Sometimes they will be priced by the square foot or square inch.
One nice thing about wooden shutters is that they can last for decades!
