What Are Shutter Horns?
Look to the bottom styles of each shutter panel - see how they're extended ever so slightly past the bottom rail? Shutter horns, also called "shutter tails" or "shutter feet" were both a style statement and served a purpose. The elongated stiles were used to add architectural interest and make it easier to affix shutters in the open position.
With the improvement of shutter hardware manufacturing methods, the functional need for horned shutters has dwindled over time; however they remain design details for aesthetics, and are often requested for use as historically correct shutters and for retrofitting projects.
The history of shutter horns dates back to colonial times in New England, which is why they are also referred to as "Boston shutters". We can make exterior shutters with horns in any size and color desired, but this design detail is reserved for Louvered style of fiberglass composite shutters only.
