Interior window shutters

Interior Window Shutters

What are interior window shutters?

One question that we receive quite regularly is what is the correct name for your shutters? Some refer to them as plantation shutters or plantation blinds but the most common term is interior window shutters.

They come in various different styles, colours and materials. the most common are full height shutters, cafe style shutters, tier on tier shutters and special shaped shutters such as round or triangular. Our shutters come in two different types of wood MDF or hardwood. MDF shutters are a lot heavier but offer more value for money than the hardwood. However, hardwood shutters come in a larger selection of colours and are a lot lighter meaning they are more suitable for larger windows as they do not place as much strain on the hinges. There are various different sizes of louvres to choose from. We recommend that the bigger the window the bigger the size of louvre! The majority of our clients go for a white or off white and tend to use stronger colour schemes on the walls, however we can supply your interior window shutters in any colour you like.

A guide to choosing the right plantation shutters for your home

Are plantation Shutters the right choice for your windows?

Plantation Shutters are versatile and generally less expensive than custom window draperies. They can also increase the value of your property. Plantation Shutters are one of the few window treatments that can be factored into the sale of your home. Why is this? Because they are highly desirable and usually stay within your home when it’s sold.

Plantation Shutters are more versatile than curtains, more durable than fabric blinds and are great for allergy sufferers.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters have slats (known as ‘Louvers’) that can rotate open and closed to give you flexible control over light levels within your room and are very popular within kitchens, lounges, snugs and dining rooms.
