Plantation shutters are an ever-increasing aspect of home furnishing. They continue to prove that they are a positive investment, but we understand that you may feel overwhelmed at first with all the options that are available. If you’re not sure where to start, allow us to give you some inspiration.
From wide windows to traditional sashes, there is a shutter style for every room. Take a look at the options you could implement in your home.
Full height shutters are one of the most popular styles we supply to our customers and are commonly installed in locations such as living rooms. The elongated panels create a simple finish with an elegant appearance. As well as the ability to alter the angle of your louvres, the panels can also be folded back, revealing the whole window for maximum light and air flow. Introducing a mid-rail can expand their versatility and give you precise control over lighting and privacy.
Tier-on-tier shutters feature twin panels which open and close independently, offering unending versatility. Often chosen as a complementary feature for traditional sash windows, you can opt to fold the top section back entirely, allowing natural light to fill your room whilst still providing privacy at eye level. These are ideal for ground floor locations, such as living rooms and kitchens.
Bay window shutters
Bay window shutters allow you to enhance the natural beauty these windows provide by increasing the level of privacy you hold. Being made to measure, they will fit to every frame, no matter the angle. This provides additional insulation as well as privacy and lighting control, which is ideal for large kitchens or bedrooms.
Tracked shutters introduce an elegant and diverse option for your home. Whether you choose to have them installed to the bi-folding doors in your dining room, or as a stylish room divider in your bedroom, the guide-and-slide shutter system provides a discreet and effective shutter solution for a range of requirements.
Café style shutters
Café style shutters are the ideal solution for rooms or properties based on the ground floor, or those requiring increased privacy whilst still benefiting from natural lighting, such as your bathroom. Typically, shutter panels will only be installed on the lower half of your windows, allowing you to heighten the privacy you hold at eye level, whilst the uncovered portion of your window still allows natural light to flood in.
Solid shutters offer a unique appearance. With the absence of adjustable louvres, the insulation that is provided through the solid panels is unbeaten. They also prove to be a great success for a near blackout solution, making them ideal for insulation in bedrooms. They also act as elegant room dividers when placed in wide-span doorways, such as those between your kitchen and dining room.
When we say there is a shutter solution for every requirement, we mean it. Special shape shutters are made for those windows which are of a peculiar shape, from hexagonal to triangular. No home should miss out! Being made to measure, you can depend on a shutter that fits your special shaped window perfectly.
