Basswood is one of the main types of wood we use in our interior shutters. Basswood is common throughout the United States – primarily in the Central and Eastern parts of the United States including the Great Lakes region.
Advantages of Basswood For Shutters
Basswood is often used in shutters for several reasons. First and foremost, is the fact that basswood is a hard wood and easily worked for various pieces of furniture and carvings. Another reason it is often used in the construction of shutters is its longevity and ability to hold shape over time. Basswood also doesn’t warp over time, is strong and lightweight and is excellent for construction for shutters due to its finishing properties. Lastly, basswood works very well with a variety of stains and finishes and allows for ultimate flexibility when choosing the finish that perfectly matches your home. Whether you choose basswood or another type of wood we look forward to installing our custom interior plantation shutters in your home sometime soon!
