Wasatch Shutter’s MDF shutter products are unquie as they are a hybrid composite shutter, made from a combination of basswood and medium density fiberboard (MDF), whereas most other companies MDF shutters and solely fiberboad. The unique material for these shutters is made by breaking down wood, adding wax, resins, and other stabilizing materials, then molding it and subjecting it to pressure and heat. These shutters cannot be created in a wood finish, but they are designed to be painted and can be customized to suit your interior decor.
A major advantage of MDF shutters is that they are especially cost-effective. If you are looking to give your interior space a fresh update with window treatments, staying within a smaller budget, MDF shutters might be the perfect choice.
Those considering MDF shutters should keep in mind that MDF is heavier per square foot than real wood and therefore there are more design limitations. MDF is also not quite as resistant to heavy wear and tear as real wood, so if you are looking to install your shutters in a high traffic area—especially one that hosts children and/or pets—wood shutters may be the better choice.
Overall, composite/hybrid shutters made from MDF provide a good value and can be the perfect addition to your home.
