The Best of the Best

When it comes to window coverings, personal preferences are a big factor in the decision making process. I am often asked what my preferred window covering choice is. My favourite by far is not a blind or shade, but shutters … they are hands down the best!  Shutters are such a versatile style to complement any décor from country to contemporary. They take any interior space and kick it up about 10 notches with class and richness. I have the Somerset Maxxmar shutters throughout my home and I couldn’t be happier!

Ease of Maintenance

Beyond the aesthetic aspect, a huge benefit to shutters is that they are so easy to clean. They are maintained with your normal dusting routine by taking a damp microfibre cloth and wipe down, easy as that! There is no annual cleaning ritual with this product and for that factor alone, I was sold.

Built with Excellence

My shutters have the Maxx Gear System, which is an internal gear system that eliminates the need for a tilt bar, so it maximizes your unobstructed view out of the window or opening. It gives the shutters a sleek, elegant, modern look, with no cords or chains. This gear system also features a tight louver closure to insure privacy. These are available in a bunch of popular colour choices from cool whites to rich mocha. Shutters are extremely resistant being made from a premier grade of PolySilk vinyl, making them ideal for high humidity or wet environments.

Green Choice

 The Somerset shutters are EnviroGreen and do NOT emit any VOC’S (Volatile Organic Compounds) or formaldehyde into the environment. They have also been certified by GREENGUARD with the GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certificate and GREENGUARD Certified for Children & Schools. They are also water resistant, fire retardant, designed for Child Safety, and bacteria free. They are an obvious choice for residential, but also commercial and hospitality applications.
