Full Height Shutters by Plantation Shutters South

Full Height Shutters

Full height shutters extend the entire height of the window. This style of shutter comes in three variations; standard full height, full height with a rail added for panel division and structural support and full height with a hidden break where slat sections above and below the break can move independently.

Cafe Style Shutters by Plantation Shutters South

Café Style Shutters

Café style shutters partially cover a window, usually to the height of a window break where this is present. This style is most commonly found in kitchens, living rooms and areas that generally don’t require full light block but a little coverage for increased privacy is preferred.

Tier on Tier Shutters by Plantation Shutters South

Tier on Tier Shutters

Tier on tier shutters split full shutter coverage of the window into two smaller stacked panels that can be independently controlled increasing the versatility of use offered. This style is best suited to larger windows and windows where both café style and full height shutters are preferred.

Solid Panels Shutters by Plantation Shutters South

Solid Panel Shutters

Solid panels mirror traditional shutter aesthetics using a solid wood without louvres as the window covering. A modern variation can be given to this style which shows off beautiful wood panelling used in the shutter manufacturing by selecting painted finishes or alternative colouring to pair with interiors.

Odd Shaped Shutters by Plantation Shutters South

Odd Shaped Shutters

Windows are not restricted to square and rectangular shapes and so window dressings shouldn’t be either. As a custom-made product, we are on hand to ensure that your shutters are made to the exact shape of your window be it circular, triangular or any other shape featured in your home.

Track Systems by Plantation Shutters South

Track Systems

Track systems are used for particularly large doors or wide areas. They open the possibility for shutters to be used as a partition between spaces or sliding doors for cupboards or wardrobes. These are three types of track system; bi-fold, floating or bi-pass.

What is the best shutter style?

  • Our most popular style of shutter is the full height as this covers the entirety of the window and can be used on almost any window. Each style of shutter has something different to offer and the suitability of your windows for these styles will potentially assist in your decision making. For example, many people are tempted by our Tier on Tier shutters, however for particularly small windows this style is not always suitable. We will be able to advise on this at your site survey or by seeing an image of the window.
