How to Choose Shutters

With a range of options at your disposal, it can be difficult to know how to choose shutters that match your specification and style.

Our dedicated advisors are here to help you select the best option to suit your preferences and budget.

Choose from a range of materials, colours and configurations that complement your lifestyle and home interior.

To help get you started, we’ve listed some of the main considerations below.

How to Choose Shutter Material

When deciding what type of shutters you’d like installed, the base material is an important factor.

We design and install shutters in a selection of materials to suit all budgets. Choose from:

  • Hardwood
  • ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)
  • MDF
  • Aluminium

Whichever material you choose, you can have confidence that our shutters are designed, engineered, and built to last. They’ll withstand day to day use and temperature fluctuations, so they’re an excellent investment that will last for years to come.

Choice of Colours to Complement Your Home

Choose from classic whites and neutral tones to wood stains or bold, contemporary colours. The right colour will create the perfect ambience in your home. Whether you desire a modern or timeless aesthetic, our range has something for all tastes.

The colour you choose can have a significant impact on the light that’s reflected onto your walls.

For example, white will brighten your room, whereas vibrant, bold tones will reflect their colour into your space.

Painted Finishes

Painted finishes are available in every shutter style. From pure white to warming neutral tones and modern dark shades, you can choose the perfect hue to set off your home interior.

Painted shutters receive several coats of paint and are finished with a protective final UV resistant coat to protect the colour from fading. As a result, they will look fantastic for years to come.

Custom Colours

If you want to get creative, why not opt for a custom colour? Dare to be different and choose a vibrant red tone or choose a baby pink for a nursery, the options are endless.

For custom colours, all you need to do is supply us with a solid block colour sample of your chosen shade and we will do the rest!
