From classic period properties to more contemporary modern homes, the one thing you will never want to compromise on is natural light. And when you have an unusual window shape that you would like to shade or get more privacy from, it can sometimes feel like your only option is to cover it up with a curtain or blind that sits outside of the window recess. But this is where the versatility of wooden plantation-style shutters really shines.
Custom-made to any shape
Not every window is rectangular. And with precise laser measurements and careful manufacturing, shutters can be custom made to precisely fit into any window shape. If the window has an arch or angle like the room shown here, specially designed louvres can be fitted in a staircase formation that gives a clean uniform finish – leaving you with a bespoke feature that still offers full control over light and shade.
Mirror your windows beautifully
As well as being precisely made to the size and shape of your windows, bespoke shutters can also be designed to open and close in a way that feels natural to the window space. The bay window shutters pictured here, for example, are fitted with a unique Bay Pole system along the top and bottom of the frame, ensuring each panel glides perfectly along the window and is always
Expert light control
Whether it is just the windows in one room or throughout your entire home, plantation-style shutters are perfect for controlling natural light. With a light-coloured finish, the louvres can be tilted to reflect in natural light while keeping prying eyes outside. Or if you have a large window space like the one in this bedroom, the entire row of panels can be neatly folded back at any time to flood your home with light.
Solutions for humid spaces
For any rooms with high amounts of moisture, like bathrooms and kitchens, a specially treated vinyl design can be used to transform the space with the added reassurance that the shutter will not be warped by the humidity. While vinyl is not as versatile as wood, it can still be moulded to fit into a number of custom shapes, such as the arched window you can see pictured here. With a beautiful like-wood finish that still gives this room the timeless feel of plantation-style shutters.
