Shutter Extras

Our stylish range of shutters will look fabulous in any room and with the option to personalise them to your individual taste with our shutter extras, you can tailor your interior design. From a range of colours, finishes and room darkening options through to a choice of louvre sizes, frame styles, tilt rods and accessories, you can create a unique look that is customised to meet your design preferences.

Colours and Finishes

Our high-quality plantation shutters are precision engineered for a flawless finish. With a range of colour options to choose from, you can get creative and realise your vision. For many, white is the go-to colour offering a classic clean and crisp appearance, however, we also offer a range of other colours. These include 23 paints, 27 stains and even a custom colour option. Not all colours are available in all styles, so speak to our dedicated advisors who will be happy to explain all the options based on the style of shutter you choose.

Get Creative with Our Custom Colour Option

If you fancy a particular colour for a completely unique look, then choose our custom colour option. Simply bring a block colour sample of the hue of your choice and leave us to do the rest.

Design Options

Customise your new shutters exactly as you wish with our range of design options. Each shutter we make is made to measure, and we offer a range that can be tailored to fit any size or shape of window. Design options include a choice of frame style, shutter panel configurations, louvre sizes and tilt rods. We also offer a fixed mid rail option.

Choose Your Frame

Our professional team of surveyors will assess your window recess and discuss the available frame options. Considerations that will affect your choice include whether you want your shutters to open inwards or outwards, and how far you would like your window handles to protrude. Our team can explain the advantages of each style. Our frame options include:

  • Inside Recess
  • Edge of Recess
  • Outside Recess

Shutter Panel Configuration

The size of your window and the location of the transom bar will affect how many shutter panels you need. Plantation shutters are designed to look fantastic from the inside and outside, and when fitted they will be lined up to your window frame for a perfect fit. Our shutter panel options include single, bi-fold and multi-fold configurations so you can tailor the design based on your design aspirations.

Choose Your Louvre Size

The size of your louvres will have an impact on how much light and privacy you can achieve. For example, smaller louvres offer a greater level of privacy but will limit the light flow, whereas a larger louvre size will allow an abundance of light but with less privacy. The mid-size option is a popular choice as this size offers you the best of both worlds. Louvre sizes include:

  • 47mm
  • 63mm
  • 76mm
  • 89mm
  • 114mm

Mid Rail Option

The addition of a mid rail allows you to tilt the upper or lower section of the shutter panel independently. As a result, you can have greater control over your level of privacy and the amount of natural light flow. This design option can also provide additional stability for larger windows and openings.

Tilt Rods

Each made to measure shutter we design and install will include a tilt rod mechanism. The rod allows you to adjust the light flow to suit your mood. The classic rod design is fitted to be room facing and usually runs down the centre, although it can be offset to the left or right of the shutter panel depending on your preferences. The absence of a tilt rod will mean that your shutters are fixed and the louvres will be non-adjustable. You can opt to omit the rod, and this option may be preferable for shutters used as room dividers or wardrobe doors, however, we find that for window shutters, people want the flexibility of being able to adjust the level of light and privacy.

We also offer a ‘silent’ tilt rod option that offers a sleek, contemporary look. The silent rod option is hidden from view and controls the whole louvre. When you tilt one louvre, they all tilt to the same angle. For shutters fitted to larger windows or with a mid rail, you can have multiple tilt rods and this allows you to operate each section independently for maximum versatility.

Room Darkening Option

Due to their timeless design, shutters will still allow a small amount of light into your room, even when closed. If you need to achieve an increased level of darkness, then you should consider the addition of our innovative integrated darkening blind system. Fitted to sit snugly on its own channel behind the shutter, it allows you to combine the benefits of a blackout blind with the stylish look that plantation shutters have to offer. 

This option is the perfect choice for bedrooms, home cinemas and nurseries and is available on the majority of our shutter range.
