They look like shutters. Work like
blinds. To look at them you'd swear
they're real wood shutters. Buy you
can open and close the slats, or raise
and lower them, just like a blind.
Best of all, they're EverWood',
an alternative wood blind with the
character and warmth of real wood.
Which means they won't crack, peel,
warp or fade. Even in humid areas
like the kitchen or bathroom.
