How much do Hillarys shutters cost?

You can find out about our prices on our main FAQs page here.

Do shutters block out light?

Yes, shutters are the most effective window covering when it comes to blocking out natural light. When closed they provide a brilliant level of darkness to a room, although slight tolerance gaps are required for the smooth functioning of your shutters so bear in mind this can cause small amounts of light bleed at the edges.

Choosing larger louvres for your shutters means there are fewer gaps for light to travel through. You can also layer shutters with a pair of curtains or a Roman blind. The pairing not only looks great, but can be extremely effective in blocking out light completely.

Do shutters help control heat?

Yes, shutters are an excellent way to insulate your windows and improve the energy efficiency of your home. They fit snugly at your window, helping reduce heat loss by up to 36%*. They can also help reduce draughts that can slip through the gaps in your frames.

In the warmer months of summer, shutters are great for keeping rooms cool. Tilt the louvres closed when the sun is at its hottest to keep your space at a comfortable temperature.

Do shutters cause condensation?

Condensation occurs when warm, moist air comes into contact with a cold surface, causing the moisture in the air to condense into water droplets. Shutters themselves do not typically cause condensation, however condensation can occur on the surface of shutters if there are significant temperature differences between the indoor and outdoor environments so make sure your room is properly ventilated by opening windows. Shutters are really easy to wipe clean if condensation does occur. Our easy to follow guide will show you how.

What are Hillarys shutters made of?

Our premium shutters in the Richmond, Marlow and Dalston ranges are made from long lasting natural hardwood. This material is lightweight, ideal for large windows and doors. It has a beautiful, natural wood grain with a choice of stained or painted finishes.

Shutters in our Craftwood range are made from strong and stable MDF, which is highly resistant to chipping, cracking, warping and fading. MDF looks the same as painted real wood shutters, with the practical benefits of faux-wood shutters.

Our Windsor range combines an MDF frame with real wood louvres.

Our water-resistant option is the Henley range, made from a premium polymer. This creates an extremely hard-wearing shutter suitable for environments prone to moisture or steam.
