If you're still unsure after reading, why not book a free home appointment, and we can discuss the right option for your home.

Full Height shutters

Full Height shutters cover your entire window from top to bottom and give you complete control of light levels and privacy in your space. Open them up in the day to let sunlight flood the room, tilt the slats for lower light levels and more privacy, or shut them fully for cosy nights in.

The beauty of Full Height shutters is that they work well on almost all window types and sizes. As a result, they are a popular choice for living spaces, bedrooms, dining rooms and patio doors and can also work in wet areas with our water-resistant Polyvinyl shutters.

Tier-on-Tier Shutters

Tier-on-Tier shutters offer a stunning design statement. Moreover, they are also the most versatile shutter type. Like Full Height shutters, Tier-on-Tier shutters provide full window coverage but are divided into an upper and lower panel. Each panel can open and close independently, giving you more control over lighting and privacy.

Tier-on-Tier shutters give you the option to fully open the top panel while leaving the bottom closed to allow more light without compromising privacy.

Tier-on-Tier shutters work best on taller windows. They are a popular choice on bay or sash windows, offering exceptional versatility and control.

Café Style Shutters

Bring continental chic to your home with Café Style shutters - the perfect choice if you're looking for privacy but don't want a complete window covering. With only the bottom half of your window covered, you can keep your privacy while keeping as much natural light as possible.

While we refer to Café Style shutters as a half-height design, as your shutters are made-to-measure, the choice of how high your Café Style shutters go is, of course, up to you. We can help you decide what will suit your windows best.

Café Style shutters are an excellent choice for street-level windows in kitchens and living spaces. However, aesthetically, Café Style windows need to be tall enough to accommodate the half-height design.

PVC Shutters

PVC is the ultimate material if you're looking for water resistance, stability and strength. A high-quality, practical shutter that doesn't compromise on style. PVC shutters are available in any colour from our range.

Polyvinyl (PVC) shutters are water-resistant and incredibly hardwearing and can be used in bathrooms, ensuites, kitchens and utility rooms. In addition to wet areas, this product is also suitable for areas that see a high volume of traffic thanks to its durable makeup.

Tracked Shutters

Tracked shutters are a popular choice for patio or bifold doors and can also function as an elegant room divider. Rather than sit in a frame that opens outwards, Tracked shutters slide on a track to neatly concertina to one side, allowing you to enjoy the view from your window or doorway fully.

Bear in mind that space is needed to one side to allow for the concertina style to function. We can make sure the design will work in your room on your free home consultation.
