When you work the night shift you may care very little about allowing light into your bedroom during the day time. In fact, the only thing on your mind is how to effectively keep the light out so that you can get some much needed shut-eye. With that on your mind, it’s understandable that you may not want to spend your budget on custom plantation shutters only to leave their beautiful louvers closed and untouched for either the majority of the time or always. For day sleepers a fabulous alternative that goodwood offers are room darkening cellular honeycomb shades.
Like our plantation shutters, goodwood offers a variety of honeycomb cellular shades. Just because you sleep during the day doesn’t mean you have to forgo all fashion sense. You can still have beautiful, rich color and texture. Basically, anywhere you could have placed plantation shutters, can also benefit from cellular honeycomb shades.
For example, some customers have chosen to put room darkening shades in their infant’s room. The best part is that because the cells are constructed in a way that allows them to catch air and insulate windows you can have the beautiful appearance along with the energy saving capability that comes along with honeycomb cellular shades!
For a practical, high-quality window treatment that doesn’t require quite the attention that custom handcrafted plantation shutters do, honeycomb cellular shades are a perfect alternative with a wonderful value.
While our first passion is plantation shutters, our staff at goodwood looks forward to helping our customers find the window treatment that best suits their needs. If you’re in need of something that would help you darken your room, yet you want quality shades we hope you’ll let us dress your windows!

The truth about 85% of people is that they like variety. Whether it’s what to do over the weekend, the temperature in their home, or which elements to incorporate in their home’s interior design. For those that change their furniture or simple décor often, plantation shutters are one such element that can offer the stability of something in the room that doesn’t need to be removed, yet variable enough that they can match many styles. Staining is a technique that can be applied to any of our wooden shutters, but there are some woods that accept the stain more easily.
The top 5 shutters that take stain easily are:
Knotty Alder Plantation Shutters: A benefit of this hardwood is that it has no problems with sap or mineral streaks allowing it to have an even, uniform appearance in grain and color. Ash Plantation shutters: This wood can be made to blend with other woods, such as oak, by simply tweaking the stain. This is best achieved when using a medium to dark color, so that the natural pigments of the two woods don’t interfere with the finish.
