Why Shutters?

Why choose shutters?

Plantation Shutters don't just look good; they are a very practical choice to dress a window or door of any shape or size. With the ability to filter the light into the room by tilting the slats, with the extended choice of a hidden tilt rod, they bring an instant aura to any room.

We have a choice of 6 material types, 5 shutter styles, over 120 standard painted and stained colour finishes and too the option of colour matching to your personal colour scheme from all major paint suppliers, such as Farrow & Ball.

If there wasn't already enough choice, you could further accessorise each shutter with options such as internal locks for additional security, a choice of coloured hinges or even choose the very classy handles to open and close the shutter!

As the Window Furnishing industry has taken a huge stance on Child Safety regulations, all our Plantation Shutters are fully compliant to EN13120 8.2.33, as there are no cords or loops in which may pose a risk to any child in your home.

Research has proven that installing internal shutters can have a beneficial energy saving on your home. With fuel costs continuing to rise, they are a great insulator during the cold winter month's and in the summer month's will keep room's cool and shaded.
