Houston Shutters - Exterior Shutters Provide Classic Accent
Historic Houston Exterior Shutters
Homes in Houston's historic districts feature diverse architectural styles, and Estate Millwork provides shutters to match all of them.
In the Heights neighborhood, you'll find columned Colonial Revival homes as well as the Shefer House, with its Dutch Colonial gambrel roof, and the Tibbott House, a stucco-surfaced, Mediterranean villa on Harvard Street.
Many of the homes built in Houston's Eastwood neighborhood represent Craftsman, Arts and Crafts, Foursquare and Mission Revival architectural styles. Developed in 1913 by William A. Wilson, who also developed its sister neighborhood, Woodland Heights, Eastwood has one of Houston’s largest collections of homes designed in these early-20th-century styles. In the newer section of Eastwood, built from the 1920s and 1930s, there are bungalows, prairie, colonial and federalstyles.

Shutters To Match Houston, Texas, Architecture
Louvered wood shutters are a classic tradition in Houston homes, providing an authentic historical presentation. Multi-purpose shutters are common in the Houston, Texas, area, with adjustable louvers that open and close for differentiating levels of light, privacy, and air flow. Houston home owners with louvered shutters often open their windows and cover them with the shutters to allow cool flowing breezes to drift through the home, providing a cost effective and eco friendly form of temperature control.
Whether Mediterranean, Foursquare, or Craftsman, any architectural style of Houston home can benefit from the addition of louvered shutters. Thinner or wider louvers may be more fitting, depending on the dimensions of the windows, furniture, and layout of the room.
Using precision machining technology, Estate Millwork makes louvered wood outdoor shutters to perfectly fit your windows. Both fixed and adjustable louvers may be ordered in any variety of configurations to fit the needs of your home improvement project. On our website, you'll find leading-edge custom shutter design tools to help you create the ideal exterior shutters for your Houston home.
Houston Homeowners Choose Plantation Shutters
Many Houston homes benefit from the classic appearance of plantation shutters. By shutting the operable louvers, you obtain privacy from passerby. Another bonus of the operable shutters is the ability to control the indoor climate of your home.
Estate Millwork makes shutters from the finest hardwoods, including oak, teak, maple, and cherry. Depending on the type of furniture in your room, the right style of wood shutters can be a chic enhancement to your furnishings.
If ornate shutters are preferred, our expert craftspeople can add touches like custom mouldings or shutter horns. For unusual window sizes common to the Houston area, we can also create special shutter dimensions. Further customization options for plantation shutters include tailor-made rails and stiles, mouse holes, extra-wide or narrow louvers, or decorative faux lift rods.
