Stained Shutters

Stained wood shutters are a timeless choice, offering natural beauty and a warm, inviting ambiance to any room. The unique grain patterns of wood are highlighted beautifully by stains, bringing an organic and earthy feel to your space. At Shutterly Fabulous, we offer a diverse range of stained wood finishes, from light and airy to rich and dark tones. Whether you prefer the subtle elegance of a light natural finish or the boldness of a darker walnut, our stained shutters will add depth and character to any windows.

The Benefits of Stained Shutters

  • Natural Aesthetics: The visible wood grain adds a rustic charm.
  • Variety of Tones: A spectrum from light to dark to suit different styles.
  • Warmth and Elegance: Enhances the cosiness of a room.
  • Durable Finish: Resistant to fading and wear over time.

Painted Shutters

Painted shutters, on the other hand, are all about vibrant versatility. They provide a sleek, clean look that can either blend seamlessly with your traditional décor or add a pop of colour to contemporary spaces. Our standard colour deck includes bright whites right through to dark, almost black greys. If, however, you have something else in mind, our custom colour match service allows you to tailor your shutters to the exact hue of your choice. Whether you’re after an electric blue or banana yellow, the possibilities are endless.

The Benefits of Painted Shutters

  • Custom Colours: Match to any colour scheme or interior design.
  • Modern Appeal: Offers a contemporary and polished look.
  • Versatility: Suitable for a variety of room styles and themes.
  • Easy Maintenance: Generally easier to clean and maintain.
