What style homes and windows
are suited to half window shutters?
Half window plantation shutters are an excellent choice for first floor bedrooms and bathrooms which are not overlooked from above, as full privacy is not a necessity. They are also loved by owners of properties without a front garden or property owners who reside on a road boasting a narrow kerb. In these scenarios, passersby can appear remarkably close to the front ground floor windows of a property, and half window shutters will allow these owners to add privacy/extra security to these rooms without losing out on light.
Half height shutters are typically installed to cover the lower half of the window, but you can choose to make them higher if you wish. It is not uncommon for us to fit shutters which cover the bottom two-thirds of the window in this style.
If you are a homeowner who likes to make an impact, half shutters will not disappoint in creating a fantastic visual statement both inside and outside the home. Many customers choose café style shutters purely for this reason, while others need the practical benefits associated with them too.
This style of shutters is extremely complementary to homes that boast traditional box sash windows, such as Victorian and Georgian style properties. Likewise, they look very elegant in cottages and Edwardian homes. However, their sleek uniformity and streamlined appeal work equally well in modern style homes boasting uPVC double glazed windows, too.
