The Best Plantation Shutter Choices

The Best Plantation Shutter Choices

Our more popular Plantation shutter styles are full height shutters, cafe style shutters, tier on tier shutters, solid panel shutters and special shapes shutters. History generally determines what is popular or seemingly popular. With the number of bay windows around England and the UK it makes perfect sense to choose Full Height, Cafe Style and Tier on Tier.

The interior window plantation shutters are more popular than the rest of Europe where they pick shutters for the exterior. This is due to the weather conditions and the way windows are built around here where they open outwards but in Europe they tend to open inwards which impedes on shutter frames.

Shutter Styles

Full Height Shutters

Full height shutters are for the full length of a window. Most popular for windows that aren’t as tall as other windows or where café style isn’t wanted. It is also used when the shutters will not open at all. In this case the shutters mimic the natural design of the window itself, matching panels with panes to increase the volume of light. This is a contemporary way of designing full height shutters and with a huge range of custom made mounting options.

Cafe Style Shutters

Cafe style shutters cover the bottom half of a window only, exposing the rest of the window. They are typically used on tall windows that stretch to the majority of the walls length.

The advantage of this style is most effective on properties that overlooked or on street-level, as is often the case in many locations in London, for example ground floor and basement flats or houses. The bottom half results in privacy, the exposed window still lets in all the light. People have this style for the privacy and complement them with curtains or blinds.

Tier on Tier Shutters

These cover the whole window but the top and bottom half are independent of one another – opening like stable doors. This is advantageous as it allows for more flexibility whereby you can control each section.

This means there can be privacy and light like with cafe style shutters, with the top half open and the bottom half closed. Alternatively it can be the other ways round, whichever suits you best.

Solid Panel Shutters

Solid panel shutters are exactly as they sound; solid panels that cover the whole window, which is similar to traditional styles that were built in to casement windows in Victorian architecture.

The added benefits are that these panels offer near blackout and also provide high levels of noise insulation and perceived security. There is also the possibility of having the panels with louvres on the top half with a solid panel base, a common option for wardrobe doors and room divides.

Special Shape Shutters

Special shapes shutters are custom-made and designed to fit perfectly a specific window shape and can be a practical and stylish solution for even the most difficult windows.
