Basswood plantation shutters

Basswood is considered as one of the most efficient types of timber for internal shutters, thus, there is no wonder that basswood shutters are so popular in Australia. Basswood comes from the tilia family and is also known as linden. Linden trees usually have thick and strong trunks and uniform grain which makes this type of tree ideal for internal shading. Basswood is also very unlikely to bleed or produce resin that can spoil the finish of the timber, for example painting, coating or staining. Thus, it becomes clear that basswood shutters by inDesign Blinds will be a perfect solution for your home in terms of style, decoration and light control.
