It’s no surprise that our full height shutters are one of our most sought after styles, given the versatility and sophistication they bring to any window area.
Practical for most windows
5 year guarantee
Full height shutters are window coverings that measure the full length of your window. Fitted as either a single louvred panel that can open and close on one or two hinges like a door, or as a concertina-effect which works best on large window or door areas, they’re our most popular shutter style, and for good reason.
Our full height shutters can be crafted with or without a mid-rail in place, giving you the option to have one half open and one closed for that extra level of flexibility and light control. The mid rail provides structural benefits to your shutters, acting as a central support for larger panel designs. However, some windows are better suited to a ‘hidden split’, without the mid-rail.
Looking for complete coverage of your window? Then full height shutters are the ideal choice. Popular in living spaces and bedrooms, full height shutters allow for privacy and darkness when the slats are down, whilst opening them up allows natural light to stream in (without your home being in full view from the outside world).
Louvred full height shutters are a fabulous choice for those who enjoy a cosy, intimate atmosphere in the evening and a bright, airy feel during the day. With the slats closed, minimal light comes through, making them well suited to bedrooms. That said, the option to have one half of the panel open and the other closed makes for ultimate privacy during the day: perfect for living and dining spaces.
Our full height shutters are designed for maximum impact on small, medium and large windows.
For small windows less than 1m2, typically seen in bathrooms, full height shutters are advised. Fitting shutters that are shorter (like café style shutters) or split (like tier-on-tier shutters) look aesthetically out of place.
For medium-sized windows, opt for simple yet effective singular panels that cover the glass from top to bottom.
For larger windows, we’d recommend fitting a mid-rail, which adds an extra level of structural support to a full height shutter, reducing the risk of warping and guaranteeing a fitting that’s durable and long-lasting. Not only this, but mid-rails also allow for more versatility, as each half can be opened and closed independently of one another.

We offer a range of material choices for your full height shutters to suit your home aesthetic and budget. Our range includes our Affordable Basswood, which, as the name suggests, is our most budget-friendly option. Affordable doesn’t mean compromise, though, as this material has proven a sturdy and durable option for any standard window fitting.
Our FSC certified Poplar wood is an excellent choice for full height shutters, offering a balance between a subtle, sophisticated finish with a sturdy, reliable hold. Similarly, our Premium Elm Wood is crafted from the finest timber, giving a finish that’s second to none.
When it comes to colour options for your full height shutters, we offer a range of shades across each material. Our Basswood shutters come in four variations of white, including bright white and ivory, whilst our Poplar wood extends to more beige tones such as alabaster and biscuit. These are also options in Premium Elm Wood.
We also offer a custom colour service on our Poplar and Elm ranges at an additional 10%. It’s ideal if you’d like to achieve a colour match to high street paints that may feature elsewhere in your home.

What’s the difference between affordable and cheap? In a word, quality. Bulky, heavy MDF shutters are cheap, but Affordable Basswood offers style and reassurance as well as great value. Basswood’s availability means we can buy the timber very reasonably and use it to make affordable plantation shutters for standard-shaped windows.
Fast-growing Yellow Poplar gives strong yet lightweight FSC® certified timber ideal for large interior doorways and windows. In our experience, no shutter timber is stronger or more durable. But that’s not to say Poplar is heavy-duty. It’s a subtle, elegant wood with an even grain that takes both paint and stain finishes exquisitely. Best across large spaces, this range can custom-fit practically any shape. No wonder Classic Poplar is our most popular shutter.
Choose the deep, sweeping grain of Elm and treat your windows to the ultimate in natural-wood shutter elegance. Our Premium Elm shutters are made from a luxurious timber with a natural wood effect that is best accentuated by a rich stained finish; we offer a range of refined tones. These shutters with their diverse deep grains give you a rustic, yet sophisticated finish, that will turn any window or door into the standout feature of your home (and attract plenty of envious glances from the street).
Easy to clean and impervious to moisture, these shutters are the great-looking hardwearing choice for your wet room or bathroom windows that come into direct contact with water.
