WHAT ARE BOARD & BATTEN STYLE SHUTTERS?
With their warm, inviting look, Board & Batten shutters are an instantly recognizable style with widespread appeal. Board & Batten style shutters are actually one of the oldest styles of shutters. These style of shutters are ideal in creating a rustic or relaxed appearance.
A Board & Batten shutter consists of 2 main components. The vertical slats are called Boards and traditionally will be tight against each other. The horizontal pieces are called Battens and traditionally would be used to hold the boards in place.
With today's designs and building methods, you can typically customize the board width, number of centers, and thickness to best accent your architectural style.
Board & Batten styled shutters are usually found on Cape Cod, Salt Box, Mission or French Country styled homes having a rock, stucco or siding façade. They also work effectively in dressing down a traditional brick home, giving the home a more relaxed look.
