What are they?

Two sets of panels, one on top of the other that operate independently of each other.

Pros: Extremely versatile, giving excellent privacy and light control.

Cons: Not suitable for all windows as they can look too busy.

Best For: Bedrooms, bathrooms and dining rooms.

Cafe Style:

What are they?

Panels that cover only part of the window.

Pros: Cheaper than full shutters and let in more light. Gives a lovely Continental feel.

Cons: Less draught proofing – more a decorative feature than practical.

Best for: Rooms that are not overlooked.

Full Height:

What are they?

Our most popular option, single full height panels cover the whole window. Quite often full height shutters will have a divider rail so you can operate the slats above and below it independently to control the light according to your needs.

Pros: Great insulation, privacy and noise control.

Cons: There aren’t any!

Best for: French or patio doors and tall windows but are sufficiently flexible to be adapted to any window.


What are they?

Rather than fitting shutters in the usual manner with frames and hinges, these shutters slide in a track. They concertina back.

Pros: Give easy access through a patio or bi-fold door and can be pulled right back to make the most of a view.

Cons: Not suitable for a window with a sill.

Solid Shutters:

What are they?

Solid wood panels that cover the window entirely.

Pros: Very insulating and give a traditional cosy look.

Cons: Less flexible – they’re either open or closed.

Best for: Bedrooms, draughty period properties.

Shaped Shutters:

What are they?

Bespoke panels to fit unusual and awkward shaped windows.

Pros: Make the most of unusual architecture. Give clean and interesting alternative to curtains or blinds.

Cons: Can be more expensive.

Best for: Any unusual shaped window.
