Shutters made of real wood have a higher-end visual appeal because of the natural texture and grain found in the wood, making them the usually lighter but more expensive option. If you want real wood without breaking the bank, the lighter-weight basswood, aspen, or poplar woods are less expensive than the heavier darker woods such as oak, maple and cherry.
Environmental conditions can have an effect on real wood, which should be considered in your decision to purchase. One of the disadvantages of real wood is that they are more susceptible to cracking, sagging, and discoloration from the sun. This is why we wouldn’t recommend real wood shutters in a bathroom or other room that experiences high moisture. We would recommend polywood over real wood shutters for windows that will be in constant direct sunlight, as this could cause warping and discoloration in real wood shutters.
