A key factor in choosing which style of shutters to choose for your windows comes down to the size of the window itself. The shape of the window plays a big role, too. While we can install any style of our shutters to any windows that you have, we find that it’s helpful to use the following guidelines as a starting point. Matching the size and style of window with the best fitting style of shutter will ensure your home looks truly fabulous!

The magic of our shutters is that we can manufacture and design any style to fit each window, so there’s no rules written in stone that things have to be a specific way.

Shutters for Box Bay Windows
Box bay windows can bring a lot of extra light into your home, and plantation shutters are an excellent fit for this style. Since plantation shutters, are also designed to help optimize light, it’s a match made in heaven! Sometimes, you don’t want a lot of light, and it’s quick and easy to make those adjustments when you install plantation-style shutters in your box bay windows.

Bi fold shutters for Bay Windows
If you’re worried about shutters taking up a lot of room in your bay window, discuss the option of bi-fold shutters with your consultant. Bi-fold shutters are where two shutter panels are hinged together and can fold back neatly. These shutters even have magnet plates in the panels to ensure they close securely.
Solid Shutters for Bay Windows
If your bay windows are in your bedroom, then this is a good opportunity to use solid shutters. Solid shutters on bay windows do the best job of blocking out the light, and they offer complete privacy. Even though these solid hardwood shutters block out the light, they can still be opened up to let in the light when you want to let a little sunshine in. Solid bay window shutters also provide a traditional aesthetic that complement period properties perfectly.
Shutters for Small Windows
If you have small windows in your home, then full height shutters make a great fit. Full height shutters cover the entire height of your window, as the name suggests. Rather than having multiple panels stacked, they are tall enough to cover the length of your window and provide a streamline and fuss-free look.
Shutters for Modern/UPVC Windows
Windows in modern properties are usually wider than they are tall, so tier-on-tier shutters aren’t the best option in this case. We would recommend going with full height shutters instead, with a larger slat size and hidden rod, these modern shutters will turn your home from fine, to fabulous!
Shutter on Patio or French Doors
If you’re lucky enough to have French or Patio doors, then this is another prime location to install shutters. Not only do shutters on doors look great, but they also take up less room compared to their blind and curtain counterparts. Shutters on doors also provide you with complete control over the light that enters your rooms, I don’t think curtains can say the same!
Shutters on Sash Style Windows
If you have sash style windows in your home, then café style shutters make a great fit. Café style shutters cover the lower portion of the window, and leave the top section uncovered. This works nicely in cafés, as the name suggests, since you still get a view of the outside, but with a little extra privacy.
Tier on tier shutters work very nicely with the design of a sash window, as the rails in the shutters can line up seamlessly with the rails in your sash windows. Our shutter consultants can advise you on the best design for your windows, as they all have years of experience in designing and installing shutters on sash windows.
Shutters on Special Shaped Windows
There are other shapes and styles of windows that don’t necessarily fit into any of the above categories, but don’t worry, we can make shutters for those, too! From hexagon windows, arches, circular windows, triangles, and anything else – put us to the test!
