Silk white full height shutters in bedroom window

Full height shutters

Our most popular and versatile shutter style. Each shutter panel is made to the full height of your window. Full height shutters give you a classic and sophisticated look, providing exceptional levels of privacy and light control. They suit all window styles and shapes and can be fitted to large expanses of glass, including patio doors. As with all our shutters, you can choose from a range of louvre widths. Smaller windows or period style homes usually suit a slimmer louvre width, whereas large windows in contemporary styled homes benefit from a wider louvre.

Tier on tier shutters in ice white in home office

Tier-on-tier shutters

A practical and stylish choice, offering fantastic control over light and privacy. Tier-on-tier shutters are made in two sections, allowing you to open the top and bottom sections independently from each other. This is really beneficial for rooms where privacy and light control are both important considerations, and also for multi-use spaces where you need flexible control over light. In this sunny home office, tier-on-tier shutters help to reduce glare on tv and computer screens, but also allow in enough light to help you work or read.

Stone grey shutters in cafe style in office

Café style shutters

These iconic shutters are as much about creating a unique look as they are about sensational style. Café style shutters sit in the bottom half of your window, providing excellent levels of privacy. As the name suggests, these shutters are popular in restaurants as they protect the privacy of diners, while still allowing in lots of light. Classic white or custom coloured shutters are great for creating laid-back and fashion-forward interiors, while heritage hues and natural wood stains look great in chic, period style homes. For added texture and even more control over light and temperature, team your café style shutters with luxe curtains.

Set of natural wood solid shutters in ombre

Solid shutters

Solid shutters are a refined and elegant choice for any style of home or window, and are particularly good for reducing draughts through single glazed windows and reducing noise levels for rooms that may suffer from road noise. Solid shutters are also a great choice for large expanses of glass such as sliding patio doors, giving you flexibility to create the illusion of a false wall when the shutters are closed. They’re also great for creating broken plan spaces, providing a practical and stylish room divide that can be used to stylishly zone your space.

White tracked shutters in kitchen

Tracked shutters

Our solid wood and full height louvre shutters can be fitted to a track, creating a smooth sliding mechanism that’s perfect for dressing large expanses of glass, or for use as a stylish room divide. Depending on your window specifications, our tracked shutters can be fitted to a top track only or to a top and bottom rail. When open, the shutters concertina back neatly, allowing you to fully enjoy the view from your window, or to enjoy open plan living.
