What are full height shutters?

If you’ve never had them before then simply put, they cover your entire window offering light and shade on your terms. They have such sophistication and elegance that it’s easy to understand why they’re such a popular choice. They add symmetry and class to a room and allow you to show off your living space to best effect.

What do you need to look out for?

The key thing to remember is not to rush into anything. Choose carefully and at leisure, there’s no rush. You want to be absolutely sure about your choices as you’re the one that’s going to have to live with them.

They can come with mid rails or not – but if you do decide to have them it will allow you to open both the bottom and top shutters independently of each other. The practical reasons are strong ones, but they also look aesthetically pleasing too. It will also help your shutters to avoid warping and make your shutters stronger as well.

You need to decide what colour, material and finish you want your shutters in, and taking a look at the theme and colour scheme you have for your room or rooms is a good idea before you buy. You could take a piece of fabric or a paint sample with you when deciding colour, finish etc. so you get it exactly right.


If you decide to measure your windows yourself, you need to make sure you take accurate and thorough measurements in order to get the right shutters for your windows. Measure the glass part, and in 3 places, top, middle and bottom. You should measure the outer part of your window too and allow for overlap, about 2 inches should do it.
