Because our shutters are made-to-measure, we craft and fit them to virtually any size and shape window. What you might think of as a problematic window, we probably see as being totally fine.

Are shutters good for light and privacy control?

All of our shutters give you great control over light and privacy, but tier-on-tier shutters have top and bottom sections which open independently, giving you the flexibility to decide where you want light and privacy the most.

Alternatively, café-style shutters fix to just the bottom half of your window, allowing the light to come into your room from the top.
And solid shutters are perfect for bedrooms, as they’re superb at blocking out external light and noises, making your bedroom totally sleep friendly.

How are shutters for a child’s bedroom?

Shutters are a fantastic choice for a child’s bedroom or nursery, as the timeless style will still look amazing while your little one grows up and their room is redecorated. What’s more, shutters are inherently safe, because they feature no operating cords or chains.

What louvre width should I go for?

You can choose from three different louvre widths (63mm, 89mm, 114mm)  for your shutters. During your appointment, your decor consultant will let you see each of them to help you choose the best option for your window.

As a general rule, thinner slats look better on smaller windows, while wider slats are ideal for bigger windows.

What finishing touches can I choose from?

You have a range of finishing touches to pick from, including door knobs, ring pulls, our NEW Concealed Tilt option and much more. Your decor consultant will bring the whole collection to your appointment so you can find your favourites.
