This may seem obvious, but it is often overlooked. There are many different opinions about the "ideal" wood to use for shutters, each of which has credibility. The important thing to remember is that you should choose a North American hardwood, such as basswood, poplar, or aspen. About 75% of the industry agrees that basswood is the "ideal" wood for shutters, and basswood also seems to be the most popular choice for wood blinds. More important than which type of wood is used, is how careful the manufacturer is in selecting the wood. The better companies will carefully screen the wood that will be used. Consumers should be leery of cheap shutters..they might be using wood that others wouldn't have. Shutters are a natural wood product, so no company can guarantee that theirs will not warp. However, shutters purchased from reputable companies will be far less likely to have problems. In other words, you get what you pay for.
This is a preference on your part. The wider slats allow for the most view, and a more contemporary look, because the slats are fewer and farther apart. The narrow 1 1/4" slats give a traditional look and may work well on small windows. 3 1/2" is the most common size, because it is has the advantages of both. Though these are our most common sizes, any size is available.
