Wooden Shutters - Shapes & Styles
Wooden shutters offer a stylish alternative to other window dressings, and with their different styles are able to offer the options of full height, tier on tier or cafe. We can custom fit our shutters to any shape or space and we use professional carpenters for our installations. Please contact us for more information or see below for explanations:
Cafe Style Window Shutters are fitted to the bottom half of your window covered with slats. This allows privacy and also light into your room. They can go as high up your window as you require but are usually half way or up to your window mid-rail. This style window shutter is very popular in Victorian houses and town houses also bars and restaurants.
Full height shutters are our most popular style. They cover the whole window from top to bottom and left to right. We usually recommend a mid-rail (depending on the style of your window). The shutters are split into two sections with separate tilt rods. This allows you to open and close each section of shutter independently, offering controlled privacy and light control. Mid-rails are usually aligned with mid bar of your windows following the same style and also covering most styles of window handles. Larger shutter panels also benefit from a mid-rail as it gives extra strength helping to reduce warping.
Tier on Tier shutters offer the most flexibility as they are two sets of shutters in one frame. The top half can be opened and usually folded back (depending on your windows) and the bottom can then be either open or closed. This style shutter gives greater adjustability to make the most of light, the view or provide you with privacy. This style of shutter is very popular as you have the choice of the look of café style or full height. This style is usually suited to windows over 120cm high.
We can design shutters to fit any unusual shape windows you may have. We can fit your interior shutters to arches, circles and triangular shaped windows, adding style to the window where curtains or blinds would just not work.
Tracking Shutters can be used for very wide windows, doors or long continual openings of 2 metres or more. The Shutters glide along the tracking system allowing smooth opening and folding. The space can be completely opened up or closed to allow privacy when needed. Tracking system shutters can also be used as a room divider or as wardrobe doors.
