Shutter Styles


Our Plantation Shutters are extremely versatile and can suit any style of home.  Our Shutters are available in a huge range of materials, stains, paint finishes, slat sizes, right down to the hinge colours.

Full Height Plantation Shutters

Full Height

What are they?  Our most popular option, single full height panels cover the whole window.  Quite often full height shutters will have a divider rail so you can operate the slats above and below it independently to control the light according to your needs.

Pros  Great insulation, privacy and noise control.

Cons  There aren’t any!

Best for  French or patio doors and tall windows, but are sufficiently flexible to be adapted to any window.

Tier-on-tier Plantation Shutters

Tier-On-Tier

What are they?  Two sets of panels, one on top of the other that operate independently of each other.

Pros  Extremely versatile, giving excellent privacy and light control.

Cons  Not suitable for all windows as they can look too crowded.

Best for  Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Dining Rooms.

Cafe Style Plantation Shutters

Cafe Style

What are they?  Panels that cover only part of the window.

Pros  Cheaper than full shutters and let in more light.  Gives a lovely Continental feed.

Cons  Less draught proofing – more a decorative feature than practical.

Best for  Rooms that are not overlooked.

Shaped Plantation Shutters

Shaped Shutters

What are they?  Bespoke panels to fit unusual and awkward shaped windows.

Pros  Make the most of unusual architecture.  Give clean and interesting alternative to curtains or blinds.

Cons  Can only be made from Hardwood

Best for  Any unusual shaped window

Tracked Plantation Shutters

Tracked

What are they?  Rather than fitting shutters in the usual manner with frames and hinges, these shutters slide in a track.  The panels also concertina back.

Pros  Gives easy access through a patio or bi-fold door and can be pulled right back to make the most of a view.

Cons  Not suitable for a window with a sill.

Best for  Any window or door which requires the shutters to be pulled back.

Solid Shutters

Solid

What are they?  Solid wood panels that cover the window entirely.

Pros  Very insulating and give a traditional cosy look.

Cons  Less flexible – they’re either open or closed.

Best for  Bedrooms, draughty period properties.
