Eco-Friendly Shutters in Raleigh, NC

The Renewable Source of Our Eco-Friendly Plantation Shutters

Southern Accent Shutters and Blinds takes our role as responsible members of planet earth seriously, and we proudly offer eco-friendly plantation shutters made from environmentally friendly materials and renewable resources.

The wood for our beautiful, eco-friendly plantation shutters comes from the Appalachian Hardwood Forest Boundary, a renewable and growing resource! Our wood source is part of the Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers who have received notification from the U.S. Forest Service that the 344 county region is a sustainable hardwood forest.

Sustainable Forest Management

As defined by the Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe (MCPFE) and the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), sustainable forest management (SFM) is defined as:

The stewardship and use of forests and forest lands in a way, and at a rate, that maintains their biodiversity, productivity, regeneration capacity, vitality and their potential to fulfill, now and in the future, relevant ecological, economic and social functions, at local, national, and global levels, and that does not cause damage to other ecosystems.

There are more than 65.4 million acres of timberland in the Appalachian Hardwood Forest, an increase in the past 15 years. The Appalachian Hardwood Forest boundary spans 12 states in the Eastern United States, with averages of 2.3 trees growing for every tree that is harvested.

We Only Use Non-Toxic Paint

Our paint is (and has always been) non-toxic water based, cabinet grade Sherwin Williams lacquer.

Are you concerned with foreign-made shutters or products painted with who knows what? Do they have periodic OSCHA inspections, and do they comply with stringent US consumer safety regulations? No!

Does it matter what you surround yourself with in your home that you spend so much of your life? Absolutely!

You won’t find any vinyl wrapped shutters here! Unlike our high quality, eco-friendly plantation shutters, vinyl wrapped shutters can peel if chipped. Additionally, our eco-friendly shutters can be touched up with non-toxic paint.

What is the anti-yellowing agent used in most vinyl? What happens when it catches fire? How about PVC? Is that a material that you really want in your windows?


We also provide design consultations and custom installation to ensure a great experience and a perfect fit. Even better yet, we offer great financing options to make paying for your shutters and blinds more convenient.
