Welcome to, the home of Sam Dunster: the UK's leading expert in plantation shutter blinds.

The site is packed with everything you need to know about plantation shutters, whether you're looking to have some installed or you want to take the 'do it yourself' route. Along with offering two different ways to have shutters added to your home, the site also offers invaluable advice and expert guidance from Sam himself - completely free of charge. Sam's advice is split into three easy-to-understand sections: Easy, Technical and Sam's Tips. You can even ask Sam a question of your own on any aspect of plantation shutters; there’s nothing he doesn’t know!

Are you looking for a stylish way to brighten your home? Want a unique means of standing out from your neighbours? Then plantation shutter blinds are for you. Available in a host of colours, designs and folding options, the shutters we offer here at are produced to the highest possible standards – and they look great too!

You can choose to have your shutters installed by our professional team or, if you’re feeling up to the task, you can install the shutters yourself. Either way, you’ll be getting a long-lasting product that will make your home look superb for years to come.

To find out more about our professional fitting option, simply click the Fitted Shutter tab at the top of the page. There you’ll find all the details about our service. You’ll be able to explore the design options that will best suit your shutters, meet the opennshut team, and learn more about our guarantee. You can also request an instant online quote, try out our survey, or arrange for a home visit to provide a more accurate estimate. It’s totally flexible and designed around you.

If you’d rather go for the DIY route, you’ll be able to find out how to measure and fit correctly, and even customise your options to ensure you select the perfect shutters for your home. To place your order, just enter the sizes you require into the order form, choose your options and add to your shopping basket. Sam and the team will do the rest! Delivery is from 2 weeks.

So what are you waiting for? Explore now and find out just what we can do for you. Our advice is provided with all of the size limitations, technical drawings and downloadable PDFs you need to make the best possible choice, whether you’re having your plantation shutters fitted by us or doing it yourself.
