Basswood plantation shutters complement any room design
Basswood plantation shutters are made of soft, light wood that is as beautiful as it is durable. Along with poplar, basswood is one of the most common woods used for shutters. Although these are classified as hardwoods, they have the unique features of being soft and light. This is in comparison to other types of hardwoods like oak and maple.
There are certain problems that people may encounter with these woods. Usually, it has to do with the colour and softness of the wood. To ensure rigidity, it should always come with additional reinforcing like extra stiles or rails. Being hardwoods, they will last for a very long time.
