Wooden shutters

All wooden shutters also know as Plantation shutters are made from hardwood and have adjustable louvre slats within them so that you can adjust the amount of privacy and light that enters your room.  There are 3 main louvre sizes, each offering a different look to your windows.  Shutters provide a fantastic window covering and are becoming a very fashionable window dressing in the UK.  Finding the right supplier is important, we specialise in shutters and can help answer any question you choose to throw at us and help you with the DIY or fitted option.

While there are a variety of options for window coverings, wooden shutters are an increasingly popular choice for a wide range of homes.  Their ability to suit an array of decorative styles, of both modern and period homes mean that there are few places you couldn’t put a shutter.  They are energy efficient and help with insulation and reducing noise, add a blackout blind into the mix to make them even more energy efficient.  They can be FSC certified, stained, sprayed or even shaped to suit your requirements.

Wooden shutters are supplied via our fully Fitted Shutter Service or as DIY shutters online, DIY stands for ‘Do It Yourself’. View the two main sections below:

There are now a wide selection of materials that shutter manufacturers utilise, which make them suitable for use even in rooms with a high moisture content such as the bathroom or kitchen.  However, wood remains one of the most popular choices due to its appearance, good strength to weight ratio and the range of colours and stains available.

Using his experience, Sam has selected hardwoods such as White Teak, Larchwood, Basswood and Cedar, as well as other materials, and these will suit a range of purposes and budgets.  Shutters can be made from other materials such as Poplar or Elm, if you need any advice on this just ask.

Craftsmanship and finish are important elements to consider when deciding what you want for your internal wood shutters, as well as the design or layout to suit your windows. We can help advise on the best material and design to suit your windows and decor, either over the phone or during a home visit.
