There are many ways to dress a window and provide style for your home. Curtains, drapes, blinds and shutters can all be used. My personal choice is shutters as they add a touch of class to a room and are also classic and timeless in a way that other window dressings aren’t. With interior shutters you can manually adjust the light to match your mood. Wooden shutters look beautiful from inside and outside a house and can really highlight your windows. From outside classic wooden design are much more classy that horrid bland curtain linings. Shutters come in a variety of different styles to suit your taste, budget and requirements. They provide protection and privacy and are a good long term investment. I will briefly outline the different types of interior shutters that you can purchase for your home, office or business.

Full Height Shutters Full Height Shutters Full Height Shutters are the most common of shutter styles. They cover the full height of the window with a mid rail to divide the top and bottom of the design. The louvers can be adjusted to allow varying amounts of light into the room. They tend to be split into left and right panels and can be adjusted to be fully open or completely closed.

Cafe Style Shutters Cafe Style Shutters get their name from the French Cafes that have used this type of shutter since the mid 18th Century. You can imagine those impressionist painters watching the effect that the shutters had on the flow of light into the cafe and the ambience it created. The painting by Jean Béraud titled Le Cafe de Paris shows the love affair that painters had with French Cafe culture. Van Gogh and Gabriel Deluc also painted famous cafe scenes. Cafe Style shutters are great for ground or street level windows in town houses, hence they common use in Cafes. Cafe style shutters leaves the top of the window un-shuttered, using only shutters for the bottom part of the window. The top part is often covered by a roller blind. The bottom half of the cafe style shutter can cover as much or as little of the window as required its doesn’t have to cover half of the window as is commonly assumed. Tier on Tier Shutters

Tier on Tier Shutters Tier on Teir shutters are a mixture of full height shutters and cafe style shutters. The tiers sit onto of each other and allow for a great variation in light and usage. Independent panels at the top and bottom give greater flexibility to make the most of light, the view or provide you with privacy. The tops or bottoms can be opened separately and each individual panel can be opened or closed depending on your requirements. Solid Style Shutters

Solid Shutters Solid Shutters are the closest in design to the traditional shutters used in ancient Greece. As the name suggests that are made of solid panels that can used as full height, cafe style of tier on tier configurations. Solid shutters offer much better light blackout than those that include louvers and also provide high levels of noise insulation and security. Take Time To Choose The Right Shutters It is always worth visiting a shutter shop or show room and seeking recommendations for friends and family before deciding on which style of shutter too chose. The size of your windows, the age of your home and the interior decor are all worth thinking about before a choice is a made. There are many ways to dress a window and provide style for your home.
