The look and design of a shutter are very similar across all the different types. It’s the material and options that vary, so for example, if you wanted shutters in the bathroom you would choose a waterproof shutter (ABS). If you had a shaped window you would need a wooden shutter with that option available such as the Elite or Elite plus.
The secret to getting the best from a shutter is to match the design of the shutters to the layout of your window. Shutters are normally left closed across the window, and you will find it’s only the louvre blades you tilt. This is why the design should match the layout as you will be looking through the louvre blades more than opening the shutters, and it looks far nicer when parts of the window line up with parts of the shutter.
Tposts are a great way of ensuring the design will match, you can also customise the width of each panel, but remember if you do this it may affect how they actually open and in some cases, it may stop the panels from folding back around the window.
