Features And Benefits Of Basswood Shutters

Basswood shutters are the ideal choice, They are a popular window covering option used in many Australian homes.

Australia, 1 August 2017 -- Wooden shutters on your windows lend an old world charm to your living space. If you're considering timber shutters for your home, basswood shutters are the ideal choice. They are a popular window covering option used in many Australian homes. Basswood shutters offer certain benefits that other shutters don't .


• As the name suggests, Basswood shutters are made from basswood which is a medium density hardwood called “Tilia Americana”. This hardwood is a member of the Linden family of trees having strong trucks and a fine woodgrain. As a result the shutters created from basswood have a fine texture and a smooth finish.

• Basswood being a medium density timber is neither too heavy nor too light. Yet, it is reasonably hard enough to withstand shocks and bumps.

• Unlike other timbers, basswood is not prone to warping due to heat and moisture. It is kiln dried to remove almost 90% moisture which makes it resistant to warping.


• Since basswood resists warping, the shutters made from it do not bend out of shape. Basswood shutters can be installed even is spaces where you would otherwise avoid timber shutters like bathrooms and kitchens.

• Basswood shutters are durable and sturdy due to the natural hardness of the wood. The wood also works well with the bonding materials and having a fine grain the shutters come with a smooth finish. As such, you'll find basswood shutters are well made, giving a sleek and elegant appeal to your home.

• Shutters can be custom designed to suit the windows or doors with the panel size as per your choice. The blades also come in various sizes. The wood itself can be painted or stained to the colour of your choice.

• As with all wooden shutters, Shutters Melbourne also allow you to control the light and heat entering the room. You can leave the blades angled to let in some light and air or they can be completely closed to block out the light.

• One of the most important benefit basswood shutters provide is that of insulation. When the blades are closed, you have an insulated space so that the heat does not leave the room in winters or prevents it from entering your home in summer.
