Internal Shutters

Originally use as external shutters in climates traditionally hotter than the UK these shutters are now a very popular form of internal shading in traditional and contemporary homes.

Interior shutters, or Plantation shutters, are available in a wide range of styles, materials and finishes to suit virtually any window shape, size or style.

Most internal shutters are made with louvres which you can tilt to vary the amount of light entering the room and also provide the privacy you require. These louvres are available in a range of sizes. The shutters can also be hinged so that they fold back away from the window when not required.

Originally these shutters were crafted from wood and this is still a popular choice with a wide range of species used including Cedar and Basswood although MDF and plastic, or plastic coated, options are available – the latter being more suited to high moisture environments such as bathrooms.

With shutters you can really have a bespoke product as it is possible to specify the paint or stain finish you require to complement or perhaps contrast with your decor.

Shutters can be made for sloping and shaped glazing and can even be used for conservatory roof shading. Solid shutters are also an option.

Wooden shutters are a more specialised product, particularly the fitting, so make sure you always use a BBSA member.

As internal shutters do not use operating cords or chains they are an ideal form of shading for homes where children live or may visit.

Internal shutters are also known as; Plantation shutters.
