Choosing the Right Shutters For Your Home

If you're thinking of having window shutters for the first time and you're unsure as to which type are best, don't worry, because today we're going to talk you through the different styles. Here at Window Shutters Scotland we have an amazing range of wooden window shutters and hopefully you'll find a style that's right for you.

Whether your home is a modern property or you live in a classic period house, window shutters always look good, and as they are so versatile, they can easily complement your personal taste and décor.

Let's take a look at our wonderful range of window shutters, so you can find the right ones for your home.

Cafe Style Window Shutters

With cafe style shutters you'll have blinds on the lower half of your windows only. They're extremely elegant and you'll get a lot of light as well as privacy. You may find that the upper part of your windows feel a little bare, and one way of overcoming this is to place blinds on the upper part of the window. This type of shutter is particularly good for kitchens and living rooms.

Plantation Window Shutters

Plantation shutters consist of one large panel covering the entire window. You can open them for full light and close them completely for full privacy. They're great for bedrooms if you want it completely dark at night. You can have plantation shutters with slat control for at least part or all of the shutter, so that you can tilt them, again giving you more control over light and privacy.

Tier on Tier Window Shutters

How about window shutters with panels at the top and bottom, which open and shut independently of each other? This is a really flexible and sophisticated option for those that like increased control over light and privacy.

Solid Window Shutters

Solid shutters can consist of one solid panel, or they can have slats on one panel and solid on the lower or upper one. You can shut out and let in light beautifully, and they offer such an elegant look for your windows.

Custom Designed Window Shutters

You can have your wooden window shutters designed to your specifications, and here at Window Shutters Scotland we can work with you and make sure your windows look exactly how you want them to look.

Wooden Window Shutters

Most of our wooden window shutters are made of wood and we have a wide selection of different types, as well as a great selection of colours.

Unusually Shaped Windows

Don't let the shape of your windows deter you from having window shutters. You can have them custom made to fit any shape or size, so all you have to do is choose which you think fits in best with the style and décor of your home.

What type of window shutters are best for the kitchen?

You can make your kitchen a little more private with window shutters, and you may find that cafe style shutters are a perfect choice for the kitchen, allowing you to shut the lower part of the window and allow plenty of air and light for the upper part.

Living room area – what type of window shutters are best?

Tier on tier may be a good choice of shutters because you can shut out part of the noise of foot traffic if you live on a busy road, while keeping the upper panels open to allow in daylight. You might find that cafe style shutters are a good choice too.

Bedroom Window Shutters

If you are going to be leaving the shutters closed in the bedroom, then perhaps you may find that full height plantation shutters are best. Solid shutters are good for keeping the light out if you need to have the room completely dark when you go to sleep.

Bathroom Window Shutters

Regardless of the size of your bathroom window, you'll still be able to have wooden window shutters fitted. They can offer privacy while allowing some light in at the same time.
