Louvered or solid shutters – what is the difference?

When embarking on the journey to beautiful bespoke shutters, it is essential to know the difference between louvered shutters and solid shutters and the benefits they provide. Whether you’re looking for privacy, light control or noise reduction, we aim to answer all of the need-to-know questions about the two styles.

What’s the difference between louvered shutters and solid shutters?

Louvered shutters are a versatile style that works well in both traditional and contemporary properties. Whether you choose full-height, tier-on-tier or café-style, all of the shutters feature adjustable slats so that you are in full control of privacy, light and more. Find out more about wood louvered shutters.

Bespoke solid shutters are quite different in terms of design. They feature statement wood panels that allow maximum light in when open and when closed reduces light and outside noise. In addition to this, full solid raised shutters also help to insulate the space, making it a great choice for those who live in older homes that suffer from central heating escaping through the windows.
