The style of the shutters refers to the overall design and how it may look over a particular window. Selecting the right style ultimately starts with the window shape and size and your requirements. We are more than happy to offer recommendation or suggestions on which might be the best or most suitable style for you.
The Full Height style is the most popular choice, where a panel covers the entire height of the window, also being one of the most customisable. The Full Height style can be further classified into several design options
Full Height Standard
This design option consists of having the entire height of the window covered with each panel’s slats, all being interconnected through the tilt rod, and all the slats tilting into the same direction.
Full Height with Mid-Rail
The mid rail is both a design and an utility feature. By having a mid-rail on a Full Height shutter panel, it allows for individual tilting of the slats from the top half compared to the slats from the bottom half of the panel. While you keep the bottom half shut you gain privacy, whereas keeping the top half of the panel with the slats open you also allow for the sunlight to enlighten the room.
For really tall windows, a mid-rail is recommended to have on the Full Height style and in some cases it becomes imposed as it adds up to the stability of the shutters themselves.
Full Height with Split-Louvres
The split louvre section acts a separator for a panel, just like a mid rail, yet without being noticeable at all. It also allows separate openings of the louvres from the top half compared to the louvres left on the bottom side of the panel, from where the split section is done.
Tier on Tier Plantation Shutters
The Tier on Tier design consists on having two sets of panels on top of each other that operate independently. The tier on tier design makes a stunning feature in Victorian properties. This style provides the much needed privacy, whilst allowing the most light into the rooms.
Café Style Plantation Shutters
The Café Style covers only the bottom half of a window while leaving the top side fully exposed. These are ideal for ground level windows in living areas or kitchens, while also being a great fit for commercial premises such as cafes or restaurants. The style originated from France, where various shutters are used in order to offer a private dining experience.
When choosing wood shutters for windows, the style of your shutter defines the entire feel of the window.
If slatted shutters can be designed to appear modern or traditional, depending on your selection of wood material and slat size, larger sizes tend to appear more modern.
The Solid panel shutters still remain a favourite for those who want to keep a traditional Victorian look for their windows.
Rather than fitting shutters in the usual manner with frames and hinges, these shutters slide on a track.
Tracked shutters are ideal for wide window expanses, or when you are looking to divide a room, as tracking allows for multiple folding panels. The tracked shutters are full height style allowing you to either concertina or slide the panels.
