Bring style and durability to your San Antonio area home at a reasonable price point with our Streamline Shutters collection. Our plantation shutters are traditionally offered with a standard rear tilt rod for a clear view outdoors. A metal linkage is placed on the rear louver edge of a streamline shutter panel, allowing minimal light to seep through when the louvers are closed. Take a look at our Flagship Shutters to enhance light control shutter options…
Commonly referred to as Front Tilt, Center Tilt is the standard tilt rod specifically designed for our wood shutters. A continuous metal linkage is connected to each louver by staples on a single wooden rod which is positioned on the center of the shutter panel. Our center tilt rod plantation shutters option is frequently used for a traditional home design, offering a classic style for any space.
If you prefer a contemporary design, an ideal choice would be the Horizon Solo tilt rod, featuring a single, molded tilt rod on one edge of the louvers. The shutter options you select should correlate effortlessly with the design and function of your home. As the shutters are set in place, the side with the tilt rod blocks incoming sunlight more than the opposing side without the tilt rod. However, if you’re seeking a room darkening solution, or don’t like the asymmetrical appearance of a single tilt rod, then the Horizon Dual side tilt rods may be the better plantation shutter option.
The side tilt rod is a highly sought-after option for those wanting to achieve a more modern look. The Horizontal Dual Side Tilt Rods allow for an open and unblocked view. There is one tilt rod located on each side of the louvers, offering landscape perspective when the louvers are open. This corresponds well with the contemporary architectural design. There is elevated light blockage when the louvers are fully shut because the tilt rods are both formed to overlap the vertical stiles.
A new style of tilt rod has arrived called the Mirage Solo. Although it shares some similarities to the Horizon Solo, this tilt rod is on the back side of the shutter panel. It consists of one tilt rod in the rear, at one edge of the louvers, on the hinged side of the panel. This is a premium substitution to competitor’s aluminum strip up the back of the shutter, as you get a contoured wood rod with the embedded aluminum linkage for strength and support. It’s a great alternative for those who prefer the rear-tilt option, but when closed, the one side with the tilt rod will cover the light gap, leaving the light gap on the other side more apparent. If you consider this a burden, the Mirage Dual might be the perfect solution with rear-tilt and dual light-blocking, contoured tilt rods. And, it’s only available at Window Fashions of Texas.
The Mirage Dual Rear Tilt Rods are another modern design option. They are mounted on the back side of your shutters–on both edges of the louvers. This provides a neat and tidy look with no evident tilt-rods on the front of the shutter. The dual tilt rods are formed to mask the gap between the louvers and side-stiles. In doing so, 99.99% of direct light is blocked on average and provides complete privacy when closed. This rear tilt rod option is exclusive to Window Fashions of Texas. And, because of it’s light-blocking feature, it’s superior to the rear tilt systems offered by others. The competitor’s clear view option is just a measly metal rod that lets light in on both sides of the louvers, just like a center tilt rod would.
Intensify and elevate the original grain texture. To bring out the natural hardwood grain, we use an exclusive brushing technique. Sand-brushed™ delivers a sleek and soft look, unlike the process of intense sandblasting.
For those who desire a gorgeous natural wood-grain look in their home, or even already have Knotty Alder cabinetry, these are the ideal fit. Knotty Alder Shutters accentuate the organic benefits of wood such as knots, swirls, and texture.
We take pride in the color selection of our painted wood shutters. Whether the paint is customer-picked or custom color-matched, we only use 100% acrylic, high quality, water-based paint. Because of that chemical make-up, the drying process is much quicker than oil-based paints and allows for a long-lasting durability finish to form. This allows the color to stay longer and reduce the chances of yellowing, fading, or chalking. Another benefit of using water-based paint is you avoid the use of VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) chemical off-gassing. This means minimal odor and no harmful chemicals in your home. As a company, we appreciate the clean up process of water-based paint. It does not require costly, toxic, and potentially dangerous chemicals, making it more environmentally friendly.
