Sunburst Shutters has brought reclaimed wood shutters to Charlotte after years of testing, and in partnership with Stikwood. These premium wood shutters combine rustic charm with operational plantation shutters. And the effect is a masterpiece you can show off on your windows. The curvature of the wooden louvers reflects decades exposed to the elements as part of a barn, building, or fence. The marks, holes, and knots are rustic elements of reclaimed wood that make this window treatment so enchanting to Charlotte homeowners.
