Full height shutters add timeless style and a range of benefits
If you’re looking for an elegant window dressing that looks breath-taking in virtually any kind of property, full height shutters are an excellent choice.
Full height shutters cover the whole window area – and they’re just as at-home in large windows as they are covering French doors.
Here, we’ll walk you through the different design features of full height shutters, the kind of benefits you can expect if you choose a full height shutter, and some of the optional features you can add – so you get full length window shutters that complement your property perfectly.
Made-to-measure full height shutters are one of the most popular products we supply and install.
Full height shutters cover the entire window - but a well-placed mid-rail can be used to break the design up and match your window style. As well as stunning good looks, shutters bring a host of benefits to your home.
- Increased privacy
- Outstanding light control
- Easy to maintain and clean
- Added kerb appeal
Privacy when you want it
Large windows can really feel like you’re bringing the outside world in – but if your property is street-facing or overlooked by neighbours, this might not always feel like a benefit.
Shutters let you protect your privacy without closing off the natural light.
Simply adjust the slats so you’ve got the perfect blend of privacy and light.
You might even decide to add a mid-rail too – so the louvres in the upper section of your shutters can be left open while the lower section can be closed – the best of both worlds.
Trusted window shutter service
It’s not just about our impressive range of shutter styles and materials… it’s as much about how we take care of you, from the first contact to the finished result.
We’re trusted by customers all over the UK to provide a friendly dependable service.
Hidden tilt rod
Window shutters traditionally have a ’tilt rod’ that’s used to control the slats on each panel.
This rod hangs down the middle of the shutter – and a quick twist lets you control the angle of the slats.
Your tilt rod will match the colour of your shutters – but, if you want an especially clean style, we can design your shutters will a hidden or ‘silent’ tilt rod.
This means the shutter mechanism is housed inside the shutter frame – making operating your shutters smooth and uncomplicated.
Wooden shutters add a layer of insulation
As well as adding timeless style to a property, hardwood shutters also add an extra layer of insulation.
Our shutters are ‘thermally dynamic’ – which means they reflect heat.
The result? The warmth generated by your home is locked in on cold winter days – and when the sun is shining, you can decide whether you want to open the slats and enjoy the heat or adjust your shutters to keep your room cool and comfortable.
Made-to-measure for you
Here at Shuttercraft, we don’t do off-the-shelf products. Instead, your shutters will be made to your exact specifications.
This doesn’t just mean that they’ll be the perfect fit – it also means that you can personalise everything from the louvre sizes through to the colour.
This eye for detail means your new shutters will add endless kerb appeal to your home – looking equally stunning from the outside as they do from inside your room!
Shutter panels with a mid-rail
Although a full height shutter is a single panel – this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style.
We can add one or more ‘mid-rails’ to your design – a horizontal rail that breaks your louvres into two, three, or more sections.
Each of these sections can then open independently – offering even more control over light and privacy.
Of course, the rails can also be lined up with the horizontal bars that make up your window design too – to beautifully blend into your home’s existing lines.
Adding a darkening blind to your plantation shutters
Keen to make your room as dark as possible?
Maybe your shutters are going to be installed in a bedroom, cinema, or gaming room?
If so, you might decide to explore adding a room darkening blind – designed to neatly sit behind the shutter frame.
When it’s time to dim the lights, your blind pulls down smoothly – shutting out almost all the natural light.
Close your shutter panels over the top, and you’ve got a snug night-time atmosphere – even in the height of summer.
Custom colour service
As well as a stunning selection of standard colour options, we can make sure your new full height shutters are made to precisely match any tone or shade you wish.
Perhaps you’d like your shutters and shutter frames to blend in seamlessly with your windows or surrounding decor.
Then again, maybe you’d like to opt for a contemporary look and choose an accent colour that makes your shutters pop.
From pure white through to deep slate greys and rich natural wood grains, we’ve got a full spectrum of colours available to make absolutely sure your new shutters suit your home.
If your new shutters are going to be installed in a bathroom or kitchen, you might want to explore our range of waterproof shutters.
Our most popular shutter style for rooms that create a lot of moisture is our Java range.
Our Java shutters have the same stunning designs and high-quality fittings you’ll find elsewhere in the Shuttercraft range – but the rugged high-grade ABS material we use is completely water-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about splashes or steam.
The good news is, waterproof full-height plantation shutters are virtually indistinguishable from our hardwood range – so you don’t have to compromise on style!
Peace of mind warranty
We want you to have peace of mind every time you look at your shutters – and that’s exactly why we created The Shuttercraft 10 Year Warranty.
We’re proud to use high-quality natural materials when we create your made-to-measure shutters – but these natural materials can very occasionally develop slight flaws over time.
Don’t panic though. If you have any issues with your full-height shutters that relate to materials, build quality or installation, you’ve got a promise that we’ll do everything we can to put them right.
