Plantation shutters are extremely popular these days simply because they virtually fit any shape or style of window. With their good looks and versatility, shutters are effortlessly chic.
Whether you choose, full height shutters, tier on tier shutters, cafe style shutters or solid panels, Craftsmen shutters can help you every step along the way.
Having fitted hundreds of homes with plantation shutters, we can advise you on what is right for you and your home.
As mentioned earlier there are five distinct types of plantation shutters.
Full height shutters, which as the name suggests, they cover the length of the window. They are the simplest style of window shutters and create a clean, elegant effect.
The full height shutters can suit all rooms in the home, and they can be used to cover the patio and sliding doors.
You can have a different configuration which can be fully drawn back like curtains, to reveal the entire window and allow the maximum light into the room.
Café style shutters are also known as half height interior shutters or are sometimes called “short shutters”.
Café shutters are fitted to the bottom half of the window or opening.
But they don’t need to be restricted to half height as any height can be set. In fact, café shutters can be anything from 25-75% of the window height.
They originate from the French cafe style and apart from being stylish, they allow extra light into the room too.
Today they are often use in kitchen and general living areas and offer an alternative to net curtains.
Café style plantation shutters are available in louvered and solid panel styles and come in a range of finishes.
Tier-on-Tier shutters have two levels of shutter panels, one placed directly above the other.
These 2 levels of panels are not connected and they open and close completely independent of each other.
If you wish for your shutters to give you more flexibility, then tier on tier shutters give you just that.
They offer many options – from being fully open, or leaving the top half open, but closing the bottom half and then tilting the slats for privacy or closing both tiers across the window and tilting the slats for maximum privacy or as a way of shading from the sun.
We have fitted tier on tier shutters on many properties. They look particularly good on windows that are taller and wide. We can advise you on whether your property is suitable for these kinds of shutters during our survey.
Solid panel shutters add a real traditional elegance to your room while offering complete privacy, heat insulation and noise reduction. With no operable louvres, the solid panels can be either opened or closed to allow natural light in or to block it out.
Combi panel shutters which are half solid and half slatted and are also known as Half Solid shutters. Usually, the lower half of the shutter is solid wood while the upper half has slats which can be opened to any degree required to let in more light, but we can also produce them the other way around with the upper half solid and slats at the bottom.
