Plantation Shutters

When you’re looking to install new shutters in your home, it’s important to examine all the available options before you commit to buying. Most people automatically gravitate towards blinds or curtains, but shutters may add that sense of class to your home that you’ve been looking for.

Shutters are adaptable for every room in the house, as their water resistant and allergy friendly properties are suitable for all homeowners. They are particularly useful for homeowners who have compromised privacy, possibly from windows facing roads or other homes. Here at UK Blinds Direct, we have compiled a list of the different kinds of shutters you can get to suit your individual needs.

Plantation Shutters

One of the oldest forms of window dressing, dating back all the way to the 15th century, plantation shutters are a timeless and versatile option for any home. They are made of slats that can be opened and closed like Venetian blinds, but are made of sturdier materials, giving them increased longevity. Plantation shutters offer improved privacy, light control, and temperature control, whilst being aesthetically pleasing and adaptable to any decor style. Shutters add a degree of class to the home, whilst being incredibly easy to clean and operate.

Our plantation shutters come in a wide range of colours and materials, giving you extensive choice so you can find the perfect shutters for your home. They can be made to measure, so if you’re looking for one to be fitted in a uniquely shaped window, this is perfectly possible and will completely transform the look of any room.

Wooden Shutters

Wooden shutters are highly sought after, due to the high quality and highly stylish look they provide. As the windows are the most looked at feature in the room, we believe it is important to invest into shutters for that premium look – they can even add value to your property. Wooden shutters are relatively lightweight and easy to clean, making them suitable for homeowners living busy lifestyles.

Faux Wood Shutters

If you want the effect of wooden shutters on a budget, faux wooden shutters offer the same demeanor as wooden shutters without breaking the bank. They are more suitable for moist environments, such as bathrooms and kitchens, so we recommend installing faux wooden shutters in these areas if the rest of your home has wooden shutters – this ensures that there is a consistent style throughout your home. Furthermore, faux wooden shutters are made from recycled materials, therefore are more eco-friendly than other options.

PVC Shutters

Light, inexpensive, and easy to clean – PVC blinds are perfect for offices and conservatories. They are resistant to moisture and quicker to manufacture, so if you’re looking for a quick solution to bare windows, this may be the perfect choice. They are incredibly easy to install, making installation fees lower or you could do it yourself if you want to give it a go!

Our free measurements, quotations, and fittings make installing shutters in your home easier than ever. The hardest part will be choosing from our wide range of materials and colours! All our shutters can be made to measure, making shutters an option for any window in your home.
