A brief overview of our shutter styles.

Plantation shutters that are full height Perhaps our most sought-after design due to their beauty, elegance and the variety of windows that they can be fitted to.

Full height shutter panels span to the full width of the door or window and may also have the function of opening the louvre independently sections (we refer to this as an Mid Rail (also known as a Split Louvre).

Tier-on-Tier shutters for plantation – Tier-on-Tier shutters are extremely flexible, since the top and bottom tiers are open separately from each other (not only the louvers) The window is protected by two sets of shutters (an upper and lower) generally constructed and measured to match the natural cracks inside the window.

Tier Shutters and Tier Shutters are usually appropriate in urban settings where you require security from the lowest section or in homes that have especially large windows.

Shaped plantation shutters – Custom shutters Perth are the ideal and often only way to decorate an irregular or unusual window design, including arched, porthole, triangular curving, half circle oval, octagon eye, elongated, angled sunburst, and trapezoid.

Shutters also provide a custom solution for windows that are located on roofs, gable end windows attics, eaves and attics.

Cafe-style plantation shutters They cover the lower half of the window, it is a great and an attractive option for windows that are on the ground floor with a view of a pavement or street or bedrooms on the first floor and bathrooms that need plenty of lighting and privacy.

Tracked or sliding Plantation shutters are commonly employed in modern homes and can be a great solution for huge windows and expanses, including Bi-Fold doors and windows, wardrobes, pools rooms partitions.

They can be utilized in numerous other applications that traditional window shutters might be unable to accommodate or provide the same level of privacy and light control options track shutters provide. Sliding shutters are offered in two systems Bi-Fold and BiPass.

Solid Shutters – Our most classic shutter design Solid shutters were originally fitted on bay windows or sash windows in higher-end properties.

Usually, the shutters are hinged so that they fold into boxes on the other side to completely hide the shutters once folded.

If you’ve chosen the style you like, which is the best style?

The first thing you should think about should be “Do do I wish for the shutters to open completely or do I believe that I’ll use the louvres to alter the light that enters the building”?

If you would like to be able to fully open the windows completely take a look at the location that the shutters open, is there furniture in the vicinity of the window that could block this? Do you have to bi-fold the shutters so that this can happen due to a wall to one or the other side. It all depends on the particular home and the style you’re looking for.

Many people want Tier in Tier shutters, but with large panels, but this is usually not practical since once the upper tier is opened and the panels are an obstruction to another thing within the space. The best solution is to either bi-fold them to ensure they do not interfere with the other room or go for an Full Height style where the panels will stay in their place. With a big Louvre (89mm or greater) you will have plenty of light and visibility when they’re open.
