Q : Are Plantation Shutters suitable for bedrooms as a form of blackout?

A : Because of the moving parts on shutters, there is a certain amount of tolerance required for the opening and closing of louvers and panels.  This means that they are not completely blackout.  However, our panels do keep more light out when closed than many other options.

We have also fitted shutters in many bedrooms and nurseries, should a more blackout option be required, we can also provide shutters with a blackout blind encased in the frame.

Q : What are MDF Shutters made from?

A : MDF is Medium Density Fibre board with a plastic coated finish.  MDF is a low cost option, with great design and function.  Shutters made from MDF have a tough durable finish, however are heavier than their Wood counterparts so are best suited for standard windows.  For shaped windows, we recommend choosing our hardwood ranges.

Q : Why do you not display any prices for your Shutters or Blinds?

A : Because there is such a wide range of options, coupled with the fact that our Shutters & Blinds are custom-made to fit you home, it would be impossible to provide exact quotations without having a discussion through what you require.  We can provide quick quotations over the phone or via email – but an exact price is not possible until we have surveyed your home.  A no obligation quotation will be provided to you in your FREE design consultation.
