Interior Window Shutters

Whether the shutters cover the full height of the windows, half way up the window (café) or a shape, its describes the an overall design of the shutters.

Picking a style ultimately starts with the window and what your requirements are. We can advise the best style for you depending on your window size and what you’re after. Once the style is picked (either from your own research, chatting with the office or from a site survey) all the nitty gritty elements can also be picked; material, colour, slat size. At Plantation, we can offer a style to work with any window with a host of advanatges available; maximising light, sturdy, full coverage; versitile use etc.

The style of a shutter doesn’t affect the costings at all (unless you require solid panels of a special shape) so you can really pick and choose the exact style that best suits your window.

Whether your initially browsing shutters for the first time, or we have been out to see you for a site survey and need a reminder, we have put together a description of the different styles to help with the decision-making process.
