Whether you live in a Georgian farmhouse, a Victorian cottage or an Edwardian villa, the windows of your home are often one of its best features. From beautiful bays and sashes to unusual arched or round designs, they add to its wonderful character and architectural detail.

Yet these same valuable assets can be draughty, leading to soaring energy bills. Double glazing destroys the character of your period house, nor is it an option if you live in a listed property. So how can you solve the problem whilst retaining your windows’ unique features? The answer is interior window shutters from Thomas Sanderson.

The best ideas are often the old ones, and your home may have had shutters when it was first built. Thomas Sanderson has updated the original design with its own collection of functional yet stylish shutters in a wide range of different styles. Made up of louvre panels, they provide instant privacy and shade and allow you to see the view or flood the room with light. As well as cutting out draughts, they also help to reduce outside noise. 

Choose from classic full height shutters which cover whole windows; cleverly designed shutters for bay windows; or flexible café shutters for the lower half of windows. For the ultimate in versatility, opt for tier-on-tier shutters designed so the top and bottom panels work independently of each other. This means you can close the bottom half for privacy, and fold back the top portion to let light in. 

Most original windows are irregular and uneven in dimensions, so a ‘one size fits all’ approach simply doesn’t work. That’s why every Thomas Sanderson shutter is carefully crafted by hand and tailored to fit your individual requirements, even if your windows are arched or round. Installing shutters is the classic way to dress unusually shaped windows to enhance their architectural beauty – and you can be sure of a perfect fit every time.
