WHY CHOOSE SHUTTERS?

PRIVACY

Shutters are ideal for people who want privacy without sacrificing valuable daylight. Louvres can be angled according to the sun’s position, and when shut, they’re a great way to keep out prying eyes and therefore a good security option. Perfect if your house is on a busy street.

LIGHT
CONTROL

Shutters are the definitive way to control light, allowing you to effectively close off the window and then filter the light in as you choose. Depending on the type of shutter you go for, you can operate the top half independently from the bottom half. This provides even better light control, as well as a fantastic look.

INSULATION AND
NOISE REDUCTION

As well as filtering the light and maintaining privacy, shutters can help to reduce noise and even help you save on your fuel bills as they provide further insulation.

BESPOKE
SHUTTERS

Many properties have beautiful original windows that look gorgeous but can be awkward shapes and sizes. Opting for bespoke shutters, which can be made to fit windows of any shape and size, is a good way to accentuate and draw attention to lovely features.

There aren’t any!

CHOOSING A SHUTTER THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU

Our shutters are tailor made to your individual taste and requirements.

Round, hexagonal or even triangular shaped windows? Not a problem.

Our expertise means we can create the perfect shutter for pretty much any shaped window we come across, be it large, small, contemporary or period.

SHUTTER LOUVRE SIZES

Our louvres are available in a choice of up to five different slat sizes ( 47mm, 63mm, 76mm, 89mm, 114mm). It’s worth bearing in mind that the width needs to reflect the proportions of both the window and the room so wider louvres work best on larger windows in larger rooms. They also tend to give a more contemporary look and will let in more light and give a better view. Our 76mm slat is fast becoming the most popular width choice as it tends to work well in the majority of room sizes.

TILT OPTION

The tilt rod generally runs down the centre of the shutter panel and is used to move the louvres. It can be offset to one side of the panel to give a cleaner look. Or you can opt for our Easy Tilt option which gives a completely uninterrupted view of the shutter and is used mostly in tracked shutters across a large window or door. Simply lift or lower one of the louvres with your fingertip and the rest will follow suit.
