So, you’ve been decorating your home and now the time has come to dress the windows. Hopefully, you’ve decided on shutters already, but if you haven’t that’s okay too, because this quick guide is for the initiated and newbie alike. If you’re already familiar with shutter designs, you’ll know just how much there is to choose from. If you’re not, well, you’re about to find out. Keep on reading and in just a few minutes you’ll have more than enough shutter design ideas to adorn your windows with your dream shutters.

Shutter Design Ideas

You might be thinking to yourself: “All the shutters I see are tall and white. I want something a little different.” Well, there’s nothing wrong with that. Luckily, we have a range of shutter styles to choose from, so you can find the right design for you, your home, and your budget. So, let’s get right to it, shall we?

Full Height Shutters

It’s in the name – these shutters cover the full height of the window from top to bottom. They’re incredibly versatile and suited to all sized windows, but we especially love them on sashes, casements, and picture windows. They’re also a perfect fit for smaller windows. For those spaces over 130cm, a hidden split is required. This is an invisible parting of the slats, allowing for separate control on the top and bottom sections. Should you opt for full height shutters over 180cm, you’ll need a mid-rail. This is a horizontal bar that offers the same slat control as the hidden split, with the added benefit of the bar bringing some extra definition to your shutters. Both the height of the hidden split and mid-rail are customisable, so you can line them up with your existing window rails or transoms. Of all the shutter designs, these are the most popular.

Café Style Shutters

Named after the traditional French cafés in which they were originally used, café style shutters allowed patrons to enjoy views of the lively Parisian streets without passersby peering in. Eventually, they transferred over to residential homes, and they’ve been in vogue ever since. A shutter for any décor, café style is designed to cover only the lower half of the window. They’re best suited to medium to large size windows of all styles, but there’s something we find particularly transfixing about them on an angled bay window.

Tier-On-Tier Shutters

For the best of both worlds, choose tier-on-tier. They cover the entirety of the window, but their separate top and bottom panels operate completely independently. This means you can cover the whole window, half, or open the panels out completely. They’re particularly successful on large, tall windows, especially south facing ones.

Solid Shutters

If you’re looking for something a little different, our solid shutters are inspired by those of yesteryear. They consist of solid panels, offering near total blackout when closed. Whilst they’re a great fit in any space, they come into their own when part of a more traditional or rustic-inspired setting. So, if you live in a period property, these might be the ones for you.

Special Shaped Shutters

Do you have an unusual window that’s proving a headache to dress? Whether it’s a circle, triangle, arch, tapered, or otherwise, our Shutter Specialists will find the right design for you.

Shutter Colours and Finishes

So, you’ve chosen your design, but now it’s time to think about colour. White is our most popular choice, and for good reason. It goes with any décor, and you won’t have to worry about changing your colour scheme in the future because white goes with everything. We also offer a choice of creams, greys, and blacks. For a more textured look, our wood grain and limewash finishes range from the sandy beach white to the deep tones of wenge.

Can’t find the colour you’re looking for? Not to worry. Shutterly Fabulous offer a custom colour service so that you’re guaranteed to find the right colour for your home.

So, you’ve decided to finally get some plantation shutters. Fantastic. You’ve chosen your range and you’ve finalised the design. Now it’s time to decide on the finish. But with so many shutter colours to choose from, maybe you’re struggling to make a final decision. Well, fear not, because we’re here to help you make the right choice for you and your home.

White Shutters

Of all our shutter colours, white is easily the most popular. In fact, it’s likely that +90% of the shutters you’ve seen in your local area have been white. And there’s a very good reason for this. Well, several in fact:

  • Brighten any space
    White shutters are the perfect way to inject some life into even the dreariest of rooms.
  • Work with any décor
    Rustic, traditional, or contemporary, white shutters are the perfect pairing for any style.
  • Complement your fixtures
    In 2022, most window fixtures are white, making your new white shutters the ideal companion piece.
  • Future-proof your windows
    White goes with any colour, so it won’t matter if you decide to change the colour scheme of your room in a few years.

Cream and Grey Shutters

For those who want to venture further along the colour spectrum, we have a range of creams and greys. We even go all the way to matte black.

Our lighter creams and greys are much like white shutters – they’re incredibly versatile and will go with any colour scheme. But if you want a shutter that’s a little different and warmer in tone, you can’t go wrong with these darker hues.

If you’re aiming for something a bit bolder, then the darker end of the scale is where you may end up. Not only do dark plantation shutter colours add a unique touch of sophistication to a room, but they also showcase the confidence of their owner. Your guests are sure to be impressed by your daring interior design choices after seeing your latest interior addition. And on the practical side of things, dark colours absorb more heat, making them even more efficient insulators than their lighter counterparts.

Wood Stain Shutters

For a more natural finish, why not opt for one of our wood stains? Stylish yet traditional in appearance, these shutters bring an extra measure of texture coupled with a certain rustic charm. Whether you go for the whitest limewash or our warm walnut finish, you’ll have a shutter to blend in seamlessly with your stylish interior.

Custom Shutter Colours

Worried that you don’t have enough plantation shutter colours to choose from? Well, how about a few hundred more choices? Did you know that Shutterly Fabulous offer a custom colour service so that you can find the right colour for your home interior? That’s right. Besides our broad range of standard colours and stains, you can choose your own bespoke colour.

If you have a bay window, then you don’t need us to tell you how central they are to the character of any room. Large, arresting, and bright, they certainly aren’t the wallflower of the window world. But what is the best way to dress a bay window? Well, with shutters, obviously. But how much do bay window shutters cost? And what styles do they come in? We’ll answer all this and more in this blog. So, keep reading…

Why bay window shutters?

Let’s get the most obvious point out of the way first, shall we? Bay windows are a striking feature in any space, and they often dominate whichever room they’re in. As such, you need a window dressing which can match the energy and wow-factor of a bay window. Enter bay window shutters. However, shutters won’t just match your window, they’ll accentuate its best qualities. But that’s not all. Bay window shutters have plenty of other features to bring to the table:

  • Made to the exact dimensions of your windows.
  • Stylish and practical, their adjustable louvres grant maximum control over light and privacy.
  • Energy efficient bay window shutters keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.
  • Eye-catching shutters add extra kerb appeal to an already striking fixture

How much do bay window shutters cost?

Of course, when asking how much for a bay window shutter, the answer will very much depend on the dimensions of the window. We must be upfront and say that, owing to their size, bay windows are one of the most expensive spaces to shutter.

However, there are a couple of things to note before being put off by the shutters on bay window price tag. Firstly, bay window shutters will actively save you money on energy bills. In fact, they could save you up to 15% across the year. Secondly, shutters have been known to add to the value of a home. This is because they’re a semi-permanent fixtures which can last for years or, in many cases, decades. Such a fixture is very appealing to potential buyers. So, if you are ever selling your home, a set of shutters or two will help bump up the asking price.

Bay window shutter styles

Their versatility is one of our favourite things about shutters. Full height shutters work on all types of bay windows but they’re particularly striking in smaller spaces. Café style shutters on the other hand, cover only the bottom section. This makes them the ideal window dressing for allowing lots of light in while still maintaining privacy.

For a mix of the two, tier-on-tier shutters are the perfect solution. While covering the whole of the window, the top and bottom sets of panels can be hinged independently, allowing for separate control. So, depending on which panels are opened out, they can function the same as full height or café style shutters on bay windows.

Lastly there are solid panel shutters. Resembling the shutters of old much more than their slatted counterparts, they’re an ideal choice for more traditional décors or rooms in which you’d rather limit light exposure.

What about colours?

Much like our other products, bay window shutters are available in a range of colours and finishes, depending on which material you opt for. Our waterproof polyvinyl comes in a choice of Vivid White or Traffic White. Hardwood comes with a wider range of finishes. Colours range from the whitest whites to a Matte Black finish, with a variety of wood-stained finishes also on offer. If you’d like something a little more bespoke, why not opt for a custom colour? We can colour match to the Farrow & Ball Core Collection, Little Greene’s ‘Colours of England’, ‘Green’ and ‘Grey’ collection, Dulux Trade ‘colour palette’ range and RAL Classic colour chart.

“To louver or not to louver?”, that is the question. Well, it is one that our customers find themselves wrestling with. Indeed, people often ask us whether they should go for louvered shutters (also known as slatted shutters) or their solid counterparts. And the truth is, there is no right answer. While both are excellent choices, it very much depends on what you would like to get from a set of shutters.  So, to make things a little bit clearer for you, we’ve decided to take a closer look at both louvre shutters and solid shutters.

The Benefits of Louvred Shutters

Louvered shutters have lots of benefits that you simply don’t get with other window dressings. Their movable slats (or louvres) give you the ultimate control over light, privacy, and air flow. How much light management and privacy is afforded very much depends on the slat size. Our shutters come in four sizes: 64mm, 76mm, 89mm, and 114mm. When choosing slat size it is always worth remembering that the smaller the slat, the less light will come through when the shutters are opened. However, this also grants you more privacy. If you would rather play it safe, go for 76mm or 89mm.

Solid Shutters

Our solid panel shutters are a different proposition to louvered shutters. They’re available in all styles including Full Height, Café Style, and Tier-on-tier. When you opt for Tier-on-tier or Full Height, they also offer close to total blackout when closed. This makes them an excellent choice for those rooms that need a little extra darkness at night, i.e., bedrooms and nurseries. 

Furthermore, due to resembling the shutters of old, they work fantastically in homes that exhibit a more traditional aesthetic. Indeed, our solid shutters have rounded off the décor in more than a few period homes. That isn’t to say they aren’t perfect for modern homes, too! Whether it’s Victorian, Georgian, Modernist, or otherwise, you can’t go wrong with solid panel shutters.

The Best of Both Worlds

Are you still struggling to decide between these two gorgeous options? Well, how about a shutter that combines the two? Our half solid raised shutters feature solid panels on the bottom half, with louvre shutters on top. Elegant, practical, and something a little bit different. We’re sure you’ll love them.

Plantation shutters are so loved by homeowners because they blend seamlessly with any décor and offer sleek aesthetics. This, along with their durability, makes them perfect for any room of the house. Shutters in bathrooms and kitchens will regularly come into contact with water, either via splashing or steam. This is always worth considering when making your choice of shutters. Luckily, we’re here to help.

Waterproof Plantation Shutters

Shutterly Fabulous’ range of plantation shutters includes a waterproof interior shutters option that is made of aluminium and coated in a thick, durable, and great-looking PVC Waterproof material. This makes them perfect for rooms in the house where increased exposure to water – both splashing onto them or via condensation – leaves other window dressing options liable to degradation over time. Curtains and blinds, we’re talking about you.

As well as the increased privacy they provide, shutters’ ability to control light and heat is unrivalled. Oh, and we have already mentioned the beautiful look and feel of plantation shutters, yes? And on top of all this, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that the waterproof window shutters in your kitchen or bathroom are made to last. If you’ve ever asked yourself ‘do shutters for shower windows warp?’ or been concerned about degradation, you’ll be relieved to know that with our waterproof window shutters, you won’t see cracking, peeling, or warping over time.

Waterproof shutters for bathrooms coated with this ingenious material are available in both full height and café style ranges. They’re also finished in a range of white paints, meaning that, as well as being designed specifically to withstand wet conditions, you won’t have to compromise on aesthetic choices, either – you’ll still have a huge range of options to choose from.

So, there you have it: waterproof plantation shutters for bathrooms that are immune to the effects of water. Your shutters will look beautiful for years to come, even when coming into contact with water. When combined with all the other benefits plantation shutters bring to your home, it’s a win-win in our book.

When making any changes or additions to your home it is always best practice to ensure that not only are you sticking to your budget, but that you’re getting value for your money too. That means price, longevity, efficiency, and style should all be considered in equal measure when it comes to your new window dressings. Luckily, modern shutters perform exceptionally well across all these metrics. So, when asking how much plantation shutters cost, you should also be asking…

Are Window Shutters a Good Investment?

We know what you’re thinking: plantation shutters cost more than curtains and blinds. While this may be true, shutters are a totally different proposition to either of these. Not only are shutters composed of the finest quality hardwood, but they are also made and measured precisely to the dimensions of your windows. And apart from being incredibly hard wearing, they’re timeless. How so? Let’s say, for example, you opt for the classic white shutters that so many of our customers love. By going for such an enduring style, you can rest assured that your windows will fit in with any new décor you implement in the years to come. Essentially, your windows will be future proof! 

Do Plantation Shutters Add Value to the Home?

Shutters add class and style to any home: that’s a given. But did you know that they can add value to your home as well? Because they are a semi-permanent feature, shutters will remain intact for quite some time (more on that soon), meaning that – unlike curtains and blinds – they can drive up the value of your home if it comes time to sell.

How Long Do Plantation Shutters Last?

At Shutterly Fabulous, we promise every single customer a fully comprehensive 5-year warranty, so you can enjoy your shutters with full peace of mind. And with a dedicated aftercare team to deal with any issues that may arise, you can be sure that your shutters are in the best of hands. But what about after these 5 years? Well, luckily our shutters are built to last. With the proper maintenance they will last 10, 15, 20 years…or more! If that’s not a sound investment, then we don’t know what is.

Are Plantation Shutters Energy Efficient?

One of the lesser talked about aspects of modern shutters is their energy efficiency. Now more than ever, energy costs are at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Therefore, you need a window dressing that helps to regulate your home’s temperature. Shutters are ideal for this. Being fitted flush to your window recess means that very little air escapes when they are closed. This is great for retaining warmth and excluding drafts in the colder months, while their light reflecting properties mean you won’t have to crank up the A/C when summertime comes around. 

How Much Do Shutters Cost?

The price of shutters is dependent on a few factors. The first thing to note is that we price based on the exact size of your windows, so the larger the window, the higher the cost. Should you decide on our solid shutters, these will incur a 10% surcharge.

Most of our colours come as standard, although going for our stained finishes or opting for a custom colour will bump up the price slightly, but this is something your Shutter Specialist would discuss with you on the day of your appointment.

Other options which have an impact on price are special shaped and tracked shutters. These are very rarely necessary, but this is something our Shutter Specialist would discuss with you on the day of an appointment.

Oh, and did we mention our price beat promise? If you find a cheaper like-for-like quote, not only will we match it – we’ll beat it. And we promise to do so even if your quote is for cheaper and inferior MDF products. What more could you ask for?

Whether you’ve made the decision to install plantation shutters or you’re just browsing, the chances are the first thing you think about is which style to opt for. Shutterly Fabulous offers a range of plantation designs such as full height, cafe-style and tier-on-tier shutters with a range of tilt rod options for ultimate practicality.

Continue reading the blog below to find out why tilt rods are an integral part of shutters.

What are tilt rods?

Tilt rods are slim poles that can be hidden on either side of the shutters or positioned horizontally on the slats to form part of the design so that the louvres all move at the same time and sit at the same angle. 

Closer view of central tilt rods on shutters

When are split tilt rods required?

In smaller shutter designs, there may be one tilt rod connecting all louvres, whereas for tall full height or large windows, split tilt rod plantation shutters may be required. This ensures that you can adjust the slats on the bottom and top halves independently. Please note that for shutters higher than 130 cm, a hidden split will be required.

Why are tilt rods important when it comes to plantation shutters? 

Well, plantation shutters without tilt rods would mean you’d have to open each louvre separately, meaning it would take much longer to adjust your shutters. 

Shutters are one of the most flexible window coverings, and this is due to the tilt rods allowing you to control light, privacy, noise, and heat with absolute ease.

Should I have a hidden tilt rod or not?

When it comes to shutter tilt rod options, Shutterly Fabulous offers three choices: central, offset, and hidden. Both central and offset tilt rods are visible and run down the front of the shutters, either in the middle or to the hinged side respectively. Shutters with hidden tilt rods, on the other hand, conceal the rods inside of the vertical side rail for a sleek and minimal look.  Simply move one of the louvres, and the tilt rod does the work to ensure all the other slats follow suit perfectly.

So, whether it is hidden, offset, or shutters split tilt rod, there will be something to make your home practical whilst adding to the aesthetic of the interior. Want to learn more? Give us a call on 0800 9700 800 or book an appointment via our easy-to-use website.

What are Shutter Frames?

Frames are the brackets that attach to your window recess and your shutters hinge. Plantation shutters without a frame are not possible because the frame helps both support the weight of the panels and to make sure they are aligned. There are also different shutter frame styles, but more on that later.

Don’t worry if you’re unsure about the different frame types; that’s where our Shutter Specialists come in. With their years of experience, they’re experts in designing the perfect shutters for all types of windows.

Pink solid shutters with frame

Why Frames Matter

While not always obvious to the naked eye, most windows are not perfectly level or square. Without a frame, the panels may not hang properly. This could mean having to sand them down or alter them inside the window recess to create a level surface.

However, because a shutter frame is a perfect square (or rectangle) with pre-installed hinges, they guarantee your shutter panels will align perfectly. Frames also have a metal plate that is aligned with a magnet in the back of the shutter panel. This helps keep the shutters closed.

Furthermore, with a light block extending behind the shutter panels, the frames work to reduce the amount of light coming into the room. Once installed, the outside edge of the frame is finished using decorator’s caulk. This gives the shutters a sleek finish.

What Are The Different Shutter Frame Types?

There are three main shutter frame styles: Z-frame shutters, L-frames, and Deco frames.

The subtle, square-shaped L-frames are by far the most common. They are ideal for windows that have an already existing trim, can be used for both inside and outside mount installations, and can extend the depth of the casing in windows that are not deep enough for slats to open and close.

Designed for inside mount only, Z-frames are ideal for windows that do not have an existing trim, or should you want a more polished finish. And because most windows are not perfectly angled, Z-frames are fantastic for hiding gaps between the plantation shutter frames and your window recess. With this kind of frame, our expert Shutter Specialists can use the smallest inside measurement possible to ensure a flush finish. Z-frames are also used frequently for both special shape windows – think arches, triangles etc. – and to cover rounded bullnose edges.

Deco Frames are used for outside mount installation only. Like Z-frames, Decos have a decorative look and work to hide any variance in your window’s recess. They also extend the depth of the recess, moving the shutters away from the glass. This means that you aren’t going to be restricted to the smallest slat size – even with a shallow recess.

Are Frames Always Four-Sided?

Actually, no. Shutters can come in both three-sided and four-sided frames. While we would almost always go with four sides – it offers the greatest level of stability and support – there are some exceptions to this rule of thumb:

  • Café style shutters
    • This style covers the lower section of the window and generally benefits from having only a left, bottom, and right frame piece. For broader windows, we sometimes select a four-sided frame.
  • Patio Doors
    • A bottom frame piece on patio doors can be a trip hazard, hence the need for a three-sides frame.
  • Marble or Granite sills
    • Most people do not want to drill into their lovely, expensive sills, which is why we recommend a left, top, and right frame in these instances.

What about my tilt-and-turn windows?

If your windows open inwards, an inside mount shutter frame will most likely mean you cannot open your windows as normal. While some customers do opt for this because of the frame’s appearance, it is worth bearing in mind that the functionality of your windows will be affected.

Another option is to go for the outside mount frame. This means the frame sits on the wall outside of your recess and you will retain the inwards opening tilt-and-turn function.

What Materials Are Shutter Frames Made From?

At Shutterly Fabulous, all our shutters – including the frames – are made from a solid hardwood known as Paulownia. Lightweight, hardwearing, and easy to work with, it is a high-quality wood, ideal for making luxury shutters at an affordable price. The only exception to this would be our waterproof polyvinyl shutters, but we only recommend these in areas of extreme moisture or damp.

I Still Have Questions About Shutter Frames

No problem. Our expert Shutter Specialists will be more than happy to go through all things shutters during an on-site consultation – including shutter frame styles. And remember, they’re experts for a reason.
