‘Solid window shutters’ is the term given to any shutter whose panels are not louvered or slatted. They are made of solid hardwood and, as such, let in far less light than their more contemporary peers. They’re a favourite for those who want to keep a traditional Victorian look for their windows, in keeping with old English, Regency-styled bay windows that rise from floor to ceiling.
With no slats, solid wood shutters offer top to bottom window coverage that’s secure, striking and stylish.
Owing to their solid, all covering nature, solid window shutters are perfect for darkening your room space. Whilst not producing a complete ‘blackout’ effect, they do a wonderful job of creating dark, peaceful bedrooms or complementing elegant interiors of high-ceilinged living rooms.
Solid shutters look most striking when adorning the windows of traditional Victorian houses and flats with distinct Regency style. Picture those lining Brighton’s seafront or Bath’s distinctive rows of limestone properties. It is in installations such as these when solid wood shutters truly shine.
That said, our mantra has always been that we can install shutters onto practically any window. So, whether your property is hundreds of years old or brand new, solid interior wood shutters will make a fabulous addition to your home.
The first and most popular is our full solid raised offering. These are so called owing to the shutters’ full height nature: they cover the entirety of a window or door. You can choose to have one or two mid rails, the horizontal section of solid wood that divides each panel for aesthetic or structural purposes.
You can also choose our half solid raised or combination shutters, which include a solid lower part and slatted or louvered top portion, ideal for when you want privacy at the bottom and more precise light control up top.
Similarly, our tier on tier solid raised shutters allow you to have one set of panels closed and another open, as the shutters are split in the middle.

Our solid wood shutters come in either Classic Poplar wood or Premium Elm wood, in a range of beautiful paints and stains. If you’re wanting a smooth finished look, go for the former. But if you’re after a real handcrafted and deep grain finish, choose the latter.
When it comes to colour options for your solid wood shutters, we offer a range of shades across each material. Our Basswood shutters come in many neutral variations, including bright white, pearl and clotted cream. Our Elm wood range extends to other hues such as alabaster and shell toned paints through to black walnut wood stains. We also offer a custom colour matching service on our Elm ranges at an additional 10%, ideal for matching any standout features in your home.

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).
