What type of window shutter should I choose?

How do I choose the style or design? Different styles suit different windows and situations, so it is worth speaking with your local Shuttercraft specialist for the best shutter for your window. We work alongside you, offering our design advice and experience to make light of getting the product that benefits your living space.

Whether you settle on classic full height shutters, the more flexible tier-on-tier, or the partially covering café style, each provides different levels of light control.

If you have a larger window, then track shutters could be the flexible and stylish way to fill the space and cover the large expanse of glass. The By-Pass system works by letting shutter panels glide past one another, whereas the Bi-Fold allows panels to fold together, making them a great choice for room dividers, such as with en-suite bathrooms.

Shutters are especially good for window shapes and sizes that are more out of the ordinary. Special shape shutters are individually crafted, and made-to-measure to fit windows exactly, whether the shape features angles, curves or a mixture of the two.

If you have a style in mind, but don’t know what could work in your windows, let us do the hard work for you. We make light work of helping you choose the right window shutter based on your designs and requirements.

How do I know what size my window is?

Every home is different, so every window will be a different size. Even if there are minute variations from the house next door, making sure that the shutter fits exactly means getting the measurements exact.

Considering fitting your own shutters but don’t know where to start?

That might just be for the best. Although it may seem cheaper in the short term, wrong measurements or poor fitting could in fact end up costing you much more. It is therefore definitely worth choosing a trusted shutter specialist who can provide peace of mind as well as both surveying and fitting experience.
As the products we supply are a made-to-measure product, it is best to get a specialist to measure for them, so why not book a free survey with your local Shuttercraft, with no obligation to buy.

Do shutters work anywhere else in the home beside windows?

Quite simply put, yes. Room dividers, patio doors and built-in wardrobe coverings are all perfect for the shutter treatment. We only supply made-to-measure products, so you know that the shutter will fit the space exactly, whether for a window or elsewhere within your property.

Although historically shutters were designed for windows, the movable louvres make them ideal for other purposes too, such as increasing air flow, added privacy and preventing damp build-up. As well as looking good in different rooms, they provide additional benefits to help make your house a home.

For keeping your clothes aired, screening off sections of open plan rooms, or stopping people peering through large glass doors, you can be sure that there are shutters to suit your needs.
