The classic Full Height, with its privacy bar, is the ideal installation for homes with generous natural lighting and little privacy, as is the Tier-on-Tier shutter. Both installations allow you to operate louvres independently. The lower shutters in these installations can be closed while the ones above may be left open for sunlight, offering a mix of privacy and access to light, much like Café Style shutters do. The By-Pass and Bi-Fold shutters are the perfect installations for homes with large door and window frames, but where space is at a premium, as they slide along tracks and either concertina or lie side-by-side.
For the customer with classic tastes, we offer bay window shutters, traditional hardwood shutters and French door shutters. Curved, special shaped and angled shutters are our specialty, and customers seeking to accentuate the singularity of their awkward window recesses will be spoilt for choice by our stunning range of S:CRAFT shutters.
Resembling full height shutters in style and layout, tier-on-tier shutters are stand-alone panels which are operated independently and are placed above one another to cover the length of your window frame. Operating these shutter panels one by one will allow you to select sections of the window that you would like to be closed for privacy or opened to let the sunlight in. Your options are to open the entire panel or to keep it shut and operate its louvres only to allow light ingress. Whichever combination of closed and opened panels and louvres you choose, please bear in mind that the top and bottom rails of shut panels are immobile, and will restrict light access into your home, slightly.
Perhaps one of our most popular shutter styles, the full-height window shutter is a versatile and practical window installation. We specialise in fitting these shutters in single panels that cover the entire window recess, from top to bottom. Depending on the material you choose during consultation and your personal preferences, as well as your window’s width, your installation will comprise of multiple panels which are hinged together in such a way as to cover the entire recess perfectly. As for window length, we can add mid-rails, also known as privacy bars, to our larger panels, which not only confer additional stability to the installation, but also divide the louvres into panels which can be controlled independently. The end result is a lower section which can be closed to avoid exposure to the prying eyes of street-level onlookers, and an upper section which allows you to enjoy the sunlight to your heart’s content.
The ultimate in British window shutter styles, the 3, 5 and 7-sided bay window is a classic Victorian feature that can be hard to cover with blinds & curtains.

Bay shutters are suitable for all size, shape and configuration of bay windows from splay bays to square bays.
As French doors are usually high-traffic areas within the home, any form of window covering would typically impair access to the doors.

French door shutters match your other door and window installations and blend in seamlessly with your home decor.

The shutter style for the romantic at heart, the café plantation shutter covers half the window height for privacy from street-level lookers-on, but also ample daylight ingress as there is no shutter on the top half the window to block out light. For absolute privacy and style, the café window shutters can be complemented with curtains and are particularly well suited to period cottages and homes. This is because often these style of houses were built many years ago close to quiet roads that may have become busy as people’s lifestyle change and therefore offer excellent privacy against passing traffic and pedestrians.
