We do not use PVC. We choose materials that are period appropriate . Good luck with your decision.

Whitewood Millwork
We are a millwork shop specializing in the use of PVC trim boards. The first caution I have is to think about PVC as low maintenance not no maintenance. It should be painted like wood, however the paint will hold up considerably better over time. Installing factory finished PVC trim boards can lead to "plastic" look and buying some of the cheaper brands will also leave you with that feeling (they add more air in their formula and they sound hollow and plastic when you knock on them). A good brand should have a density similar to the traditional wood trim boards and when it's painted you shouldn't be able to tell the difference.

I don't know the exact color but I do know it is from the Fine Paints of Europe collection by Benjamin Moore.

These hinges are reclaimed hinges, but Baldwin is also an excellent source.

What's the paint on the shutters? - Thanks

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Or turn things upside down. Instead of using blue on a ceiling, as in ancient churches, apply it to the floor.
