    "The Best Plantation Shutters For Quick Staining

    The truth about 85% of people is that they like variety. Whether it’s what to do over the weekend, the temperature in their home, or which elements to incorporate in their home’s interior design. For those that change their furniture or simple décor often, plantation shutters are one such element that can offer the stability of something in the room that doesn’t need to be removed, yet variable enough that they can match many styles. Staining is a technique that can be applied to any of our wooden shutters, but there are some woods that accept the stain more easily.

    The top 5 shutters that take stain easily are:

        Knotty Alder Plantation Shutters: A benefit of this hardwood is that it has no problems with sap or mineral streaks allowing it to have an even, uniform appearance in grain and color.
        Ash Plantation Shutters: This wood can be made to blend with other woods, such as oak, by simply tweaking the stain. This is best achieved when using a medium to dark color, so that the natural pigments of the two woods don’t interfere with the finish.
        Knotty Pine (Eastern White Pine) Plantation Shutters: This wood absorbs the stain easily, most often using a light stain color to highlight the knots and the warmth of the wood.
        Mahogany Plantation Shutters: This wood not only accepts stain well, but when it does it has a lustrous quality. Dark, rich browns with red undertones are the most common complement to the natural beauty of this wood.
        Wormy Chestnut Plantation Shutters: Wormy Chestnut does well with a simple, light stain to show off its beauty. A tobacco color, for example, nicely accents the wood’s unique characteristics.
    Wood Blinds: When Plantation Shutters Aren’t Your Thing

    When you’re styling the rooms in your house it may be easy to think plantation shutters are a great fit, but not every budget or style makes them a suitable choice. Luckily, you don’t have to leave your windows bare or rely solely on drapes to get you by. In fact, other than the availability of fabulous goodwood plantation shutters, there are options for a full range of beautiful, real wood blinds. These wood blinds are a natural complement to many styles of décor and budgets.

    Having options is basically the American way, right? For this reason, our wood blinds make it possible for you to have various styles. With real wood blinds you can choose to have them painted, stained, or crafted with one of our speciality finishes. With many colors and design opportunities to choose from it’s easy to make wood blinds just as unique of a window treatment as plantation shutter would be.

    The best part about wood blinds is that, unlike plastic blinds, the slats won’t bend in the middle if someone were to tug on them. This makes them more durable that you average department store blinds. The slats are also wonderfully adjustable which makes it possible for you to keep the blinds closed for ultimate privacy, slightly open them to allow just enough light in, or open them completely to see everything outside.

    Plantation shutters are sought after in many households to bring a certain elegance and charm, but not everyone wants every room in their home to have the windows have such a heavy look. It’s understandable that some people may desire a more delicate design rather than plantation shutters, but yet still want materials that offer a natural look and feel. Luckily, in this case goodwood® has many other options available to suit the needs of those searching for something a little more subtle.
