Window Shutter Styles – Designs To Match Your Home Decor

Shutters are a popular choice for bedrooms, bathrooms and street-facing windows. They come in a wide range of colours and finishes, they can provide complete privacy when shut or can let little light in as well as be opened completely. Each panel can be independently adjusted to temper the light. Shutter panels can be divided into independently controlled sections, allowing natural light in but keeping unwelcome attention out. There are plenty of window shutter types so you can choose the one to suit your requirements. Here are descriptions of some of them for you to choose.

Full height shutters

Full height interior shutters are to cover your windows or doors from top to bottom. While adding significant privacy to your home, this common type of wooden shutters can transform any room into something truly desirable. There are also designs that come with a mid rail inserted into the full height range of plantation shutters. This enables you to operate the lower and higher window shutter sections independently, changing the light and privacy settings to suit your mood. This type is highly recommended for bay windows and can suit any room.

Tier on tier shutters

Although window shutters come in a variety of different styles, tier upon tier shutters are by far the most versatile of the range. They enable you to dress your window from top to bottom with the added bonus of having a split in the panels. Their design is very similar to that of the barn doors, it allows you to open the top panel independently from the bottom panel. As with all of the window shutter range, they are customised to suit each customer’s individual requirements. This style is perfectly suited for bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens and bathrooms.

Café style shutters

This attractive type of wooden shutters offers a perfect solution for those wishing to gain some privacy while getting maximum light. All of these shutters are made to measure. Generally café style shutters cover the bottom of the window. This enables customers to gain more privacy in busy areas. This is also the most affordable window shutter style. Café style shutters are recommended for bay windows, living rooms and kitchens.

Solid shutters

Customers who are looking to add a more traditional touch to their home can choose solid panel shutters similar to those used in Victorian times. This style of window shutters will not only bring maximum privacy if required but also add a classy feeling to any room. Like any other window shutter style in the range, you can choose between painted and stained finishes.

Shutters can keep you cool during the summer but also retain heat during the cold weather. They’re ideal for awkward-shaped windows (even curved or angled windows, such as portholes and gables for example), as they’re specially made to fit. They’re quick and easy to clean, they’re potentially helpful for anyone with dust allergies as they won’t hold dust in the way that curtain fabrics can. They can help you create the look you’ve always wanted to match your décor, whether it’s contemporary, sleek, traditional or minimalist.
