Add Value to Your House
Plantation shutters will increase the value of your property. They give your home an elegant and well maintained look.
Offer Privacy and Security
The perfect solution to see out without being seen. Louvred shutters, even when they are tilted open allow limited or no visibility inside the house. They are the perfect solution for privacy, in particular for ground floor windows, doors and conservatories. Tier on tier shutters and café style shutters are excellent options for privacy. They look amazing on bay windows. Shutters are also very effective as a security measure in the home. They are a great deterrent for outsiders. And they offer all this without affecting the lighting and ventilation.
Made to measure shutters are one of the most efficient ways to reduce noise pollution. Often made of wood, bespoke shutters are built to fit perfectly across the window without leaving any gaps. As such, they act as a barrier that absorbs the noise from the outside and prevents it from entering the room.
Window shutters and patio shutters offer unbeatable flexibility and resilience to your rooms. They are fitted perfectly on your windows and do not take any extra space in your home. They are neat and simple. You will avoid any fire hazard that curtains over radiators might cause or fabric hanging over furniture. They do not take up any room and leave your interior clear for you to arrange freely.
Plantation Shutters allow complete control over the light you let in your room. If you want complete darkness in the room, solid panel shutters or blackout shutters (louvred shutters with blackout option) are a must. If you want light, shutters look fantastic opened, they give a room an elegant continental feel. You can also close the panels and open the louvres to the maximum, or regulate the amount of light by moving their position. If you are overlooked, for example due to your window giving out on the street, Cafe style shutters and tier-on-tier shutters offer even greater versatility around light control, whilst maintaining maximum privacy at all times.
Inside shutters do not fade, they are a smart long term investment for your property. Most of our shutter ranges are wooden shutters and we offer many different material and price options. Yet, the quality of all our products is premium and excellent. The only difference between our lowest price shutters (Seattle Range) and our most expensive (Vancouver Range) is the material used and finishing required.
