The thickness of the slats and the panels look like painted wood, but there are no brushstrokes or wood grain patterns that show through. The moldings are similar in smoothness to your baseboard and door moldings in your home.

I personally would not worry about losing light as they are very good at keeping light out and very adjustable to let light in. We even got the option where the top slats are adjustable separately from the bottom slats, so I frequently just open the top to let light in and this allow privacy at the bottom.

Thank you, Waverunner,

I don't know what I was thinking. But the look you describe is exactly what I want.

The house we bought already had plantation shutters for the front windows. I just took a closer look at those and the slats are like yours. I like them. I also like the bottom/top separate adjustment you describe. My front shutters do not have that. But that works OK there because there is an arch above that lets in light.

I have been staring at those windows on either side of the television since we moved in and now, because of the nice answers in this thread, I finally know what to do.
