Clontarf Plantation Shutter Doors

Colette chose our Classic shutters in ‘Pure White’ for her recently renovated home in Clontarf. Colette’s French Door shutters were designed with 6 panels (instead of 4) which gives a really elegant look and ensures the doors slide much more easily. The shutters have 3″ (76mm) louvres with no tilt rod – instead using our EasyTilt system for opening and closing. The new ring pull on the doors will help with their operation and avoid jammy fingerprints! .     For more information call us on 087-2128007 or email info@shuttersofdublin.com

Keep Your Rooms Cool with Shutters

With this great weather we’ve had lately the only downside is being able to keep the house cool and flies out!  Getting air into the house is so important and having proper ventilation is essential for keeping the temperature down – especially at nighttime when it can get uncomfortable.  For those homes without shutters – the only way to get the air in is to open the window and open the curtains or raise the blinds – what a nuisance! – you either get no privacy or flapping window treatments! However – with plantation shutters it’s so much easier!  Shutters […]

Before & After : Plantation Shutters Makeover for Sutton home

See how this home is transformed by the installation of Plantation Shutters in the bedrooms and home office. The rooms in this house were filled with light, and our clients did not want to compromise on this – they chose our Grovewood Plantation Shutters in Pure White for their bedrooms and Limed White for the office – which not only matched their interiors, but using this colour ensured that the light was bounced into the room.  Choosing our EasyTilt system (no tilt rod) also limited the amount of wood on the shutters.

The Shutter doors can also open back to ensure easy passage into the much used balcony. The shutter doors can be left open or […]

Joe went for Silk White Plantation Shutters with a 2″ louver and hidden tilt wand. They are made from our lightweight Parasol which has a lovely distinctive grain that stands out even when painted.
