Choose from an incredible selection of more than 26 paint and stain colors. Elliptical louvers in three defining sizes, choice of tilt bar locations, and a range of popular decorative frames stylize this very popular plantation shutter collection. Our industrial coating process creates a buttery smooth, homogenously consistent finish throughout each shutter and throughout your customers’ home. High-tech equipment ensures consistent application of 7 coats of finish over the entire shutter. You will be proud and confident to select our products for your most discriminating applications.
Our shutters are hand-built. We take pride in every shutter produced. Our quality hardwood shutters are stronger and lighter than the alternative MDF or plastic products. We use a tough 4-dowel connection at every joint for the shutter panel components, superior to biscuit jointing and a 2-dowel construction. Our panels are engineered to stand up to the rigors of a typical household. We mill beads into the vertical stiles to create a visually softer panel door. We utilize a drop rail construction for additional architectural details. Our patented louver connector ensures durability and consistent louver control for a lifetime.
Our distinctive designs combine with innovative excellence to create a shutter in a class of its own. Most people prefer real wood just as they prefer clothing made of cotton or wool instead of polyester. There is something to be said about the real thing. For a warm, authentic, traditional look, Basswood is the best choice, simply because wood is the premium material. We use Basswood for all of our shutters. Nothing is as visually warm or as structurally strong as basswood. Anything else would be a compromise. It is a time tested material of choice for quality minded retailers and homeowners.
Stain grade shutters allow the visual characteristics of the wood to show through the coating. Because the natural grain shows through the finish, it is important to choose a hardwood that best matches the characteristics of the wood in the home; i.e. kitchen cabinets, doors, trim, etc. Our Timber Ridge Knotty Shutter has a more rustic, knotty grain character than Basswood which lends itself more toward a contemporary, casual, lodge, or rustic decorating styles.
Knotty Rustic is currently our most popular stained wood since it matches the décor of most new homes and remodels. An exhaustive search yielded this wood specie that had enough grain variation and imperfections to mimic today’s more popular knotty cabinet choices. As these new cabinet styles have quite a bit of dramatic wood characteristics displayed, our shutter style complements perfectly. Some traditional knotty Alder, Cherry, or Pine wood yields limited imperfections so that the shutter doesn’t look much different than a traditional stained Basswood shutter.
Timber Ridge Knotty Shutters are available in all of the same colors as our Basswood program. Although the range of color within each shutter will be wider than the Basswood line due to the variation of graining in our Rustic wood, the tone of the color will remain the same. Our Knotty Cedar program is finished on the same Electrostatic coating line as our Basswood program to ensure the same durable everlasting finish.
A very high quality wood shutter without many compromises made for cost-conscious consumers. All wood construction utilizing beaded stiles, drop rails, and traditional bullnose louvers create a feature rich wood shutter designed to last a lifetime. Available in our two most popular paint colors and our most popular 3 1/2" louver size. Priced on parity with hollow plastic or composite (plastic wood) shutters.
Like all fine custom wood furniture, we use the highest quality lacquer finishes available on the market today. The finish is electrostatically applied in an industrial automated application of 7 multiple layers on top of a base Jesso-coat over a meticulously sanded profile ensuring a buttery smooth finish. The application process is inherently efficient, consistent, and creates very low VOCs. Not only does the finish look and feel great, but once infrared dried and cured it is a very hard, durable surface that is extremely easy to clean. Light dusting is usually all that is required to keep the shutters looking great for a lifetime!

Solar Sun Screen Shades reduce glare, preserve views, and limit solar heat gain. Solar shades, also known as solar screens and indoor sun shades, are based on a roller tube or roller window shade and are available in a range of screen openness factors, allowing you to choose how much light control you desire. Solar shades are the perfect choice for windows with a view. They reduce glare and improve energy efficiency by limiting solar heat gain and, also block harmful UV rays.
Because Solar Sun Screen Shades substantially block UV rays, these shades will help reduce the fading of furniture, carpet and other decor, and keep you and your family safe from prolonged UV sun exposure in your home. Solar Sun Screen Shades are window shades designed for blocking a significant percentage of sunlight, and are available in screen openness factors from 0% to more than 20%. The smaller the number, the less "open" the screen is (the more "solid" the actual fabric). So for maximum view-through choose a high % openness number (14 - 20%). For greater privacy, choose small % openness numbers (1%).
Solar Sun Screen Shades are offered in a surprising range of colors, textures, and fabrics. Choose from numerous colors as well as stripes, patterns and weaves that more closely resemble natural materials. Some of our new materials mimic Natural Woven Shades. Another prints these "weaves" onto the screen fabric creating the illusion of woven fabric.
If privacy is a major concern, Solar Sun Screen Shades may not be the best choice. As a rule of thumb, how well you can see out of your windows during the day is approximately how well people can see into your home at night. This can be even more apparent at night when images in your home are back lit. For maximum privacy, choose smaller screen openness factors (1-3%).
Ideal for commercial establishments, we have been printing custom graphics; like store logos and slogans, on Solar Sun Screen Shades for years. Now, we have begun to see a much similar demand to print professional sports team & collegiate logos for residential use - perfect for that "man cave", den or office. We can even print your favorite beach or lush tropical destination to cover up that dreaded view towards your neighbor's .....boat, storage shed, or junk..... without giving up all of the natural light you'd like to enjoy in that area.

For more than 60 years, Hunter Douglas, the leading manufacturer of custom-made window fashions in North America, has been making a big difference at the window and in homes across America.
Just one among many of their celebrated products: the highly energy-efficient Duette® honeycomb shades-invented in 1985, the first product of its kind in response to the energy crisis of the late 1970s. The latest generation of honeycomb shades - the Duette® Architella Collection - offers even greater energy efficiency, thanks to their patented honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction. Along with the Duette family of window fashions, many of their other products contribute to energy savings at the window, including popular Silhouette and Pirouette window shadings and Luminette® Privacy Sheers, to name just a few.
As evident from their history, Hunter Douglas obviously believes window fashions must be more than stylish. In addition to offering energy efficiency, window treatments should provide some privacy and light control. They should help protect your furnishings from damaging UV rays. Even absorb sounds, helping to improve the acoustics in a room.
Hunter Douglas also believes that what makes them truly special is experienced Hunter Douglas dealers like Robinson Krohn Window Fashions - our principals have been involved with Hunter Douglas since 1985. Walk into our showroom or have us visit your home or business and you'll have access to beautiful product displays, hundreds of swatch samples, and expert guidance to help ensure you're getting exactly what you want and need.

Outdoor Patio Solar Shades make patios, decks, porches, pergolas, lanais and gazebos more comfortable. Designed to block the sun's heat and glare and reduce fading, the woven fabric also allows some air to pass though for ventilation. Outdoor shades stop more heat than interior ones. They can save up to 30% in air conditioning costs. Transparent screen shades provide daytime privacy with full vision outwards. Darkest colors stop heat by 10% over lighter colors. Outdoor shades with tighter weaves extend the summer by protecting outside areas from cold breezes and also provide shelter for plants. Add a safe heater and stay nice and cozy in cooler evening hours extending your patio's usefulness.
Installing an outdoor sun shade can significantly reduce cooling costs inside your home and create a pleasant atmosphere for your patio, deck or sunroom. Outdoor shades and outdoor blinds are made with solar screen fabric, which stops the sun's heat before it strikes your window, reducing heat transfer and keeping your home or business cooler.
Our select line of motorized retractable shades offers an ideal solution to help you with your glaring sun issues for spans up to 40 feet wide. Made from the highest quality materials, these shades can be mounted in locations around your home to stop up to 99% of the solar heat rays and provide up to 100% shade with just the touch of a button! You will still enjoy almost total non-glare visibility from the inside while providing a cool and comfortable environment for you and your family to enjoy.
Installing retractable shades or awnings is an effective and easy way to reduce your carbon foot print.
Light Duty Manual Shades can come with a clutch system of operation (for Light Duty Interior Shades or Exterior Clutch Shades only) making opening and closing them as easy as pulling a chain. Simply pull down on one side of the chain to raise the shade and then down again the on opposite side to lower it - simple and intuitive for anyone to operate.
Heavy Duty Manual Shades come with a crank operation. The crank gear enables you to insert a wand in a small loop coming from one side of the shade and you simple use your crank wand to turn the loop, effectively raising or lowering the shade. This system takes a bit more effort & time than the clutch control system as its gearing ratio is greater.
Motorized Shades also come with several different options for control. When choosing a motor for your shade you can use either a Low Voltage Sonesse (quiet) Motor or a 12V RTS Battery Powered Motor for your Light Duty Shade. Or you can choose a Sonesse 504 (quiet) Motor, a Standard Motor, or an Altus RTS Motor for your Heavy Duty Shade.
The Standard Motor is a hard wired motor that comes with two different wall switch options. You can choose a Toggle Switch or a Paddle Switch. Each switch comes in either Ivory or White.
If you chose the Altus RTS Motor or the Sonesse 504 (quiet) Motor you are eligible to use a Telis Remote Control or Wireless Wall Switch. The Telis Remote Control comes in a Multi-Channel or a Single Channel model as well as new Six, Sixteen, and Twenty Channel models. The Single and Multi-Channel models can be ordered in standard white, black, blue (waterproof), or Silver colored.
The Wireless Wall Switch or Decoflex Switch is essentially a remote that can be mounted to the wall. It comes in a Single Channel or Multi- Channel model and is available in Black, White or Ivory. These switches are available to all customers who are using an Altus RTS motor.
