Shuttering Style & Construction
Tier On Tier Shutters
Tier on Tier Plantation Shutters are great for tall windows. The best way to describe these shutters is as a shutter on top of a shutter. An advantage of Tier on Tier Shutters over Venetian Window Blinds is that the top shutters can be open allowing light and air to enter, while the bottom shutters remain closed protecting your privacy.
Tier on Tier Plantation Shutters can be made to fit all windows sizes. The divider position and shutter style is entirely up to the customer.
Because architecture is not confined to straight lines and right angles; neither are our Plantation Shutters. By choosing from our special shaped shutter range, you expose your interior design to a whole new range of options and ideas.
Each window in your home will be made to measure exact to your specifications, ensuring a personal finish is applied every time.
Our design team will measure your window, opening or door perfectly and deliver the information directly to our main supplier here in Ireland. No shape is too difficult to fabricate, which enhances the option of selecting shutters for today's advanced architectural designs. Please note that because of the nature of unique shapes, production and delivery times will be longer than a Classic Plantation Shutter.
The number, size and style of your shutters divider rail are entirely up to you. See some of our previous projects which have included Divider Rail Shutters.
The design of the Café Style Shutter dates back to 19th century Vienna. These interior shutters have stood the test of time and proven to be exceedingly popular in homes and cafés. Café Style Shutters can create a traditionally continental feel in a room. While maintaining a degree of privacy, Café Style Shutters will allow natural light to fill the room. Especially popular in kitchens, Café Style Shutters can be used in conjunction with simple roller window blinds to provide full privacy if required.

A French Door with a shutter application creates absolute privacy and light control. Additionally, it does not require the removal or replacement of the door handle. As well as French doors, shutters work great in archways between rooms.
Bifold Window Shutters contain shutter panels that are hinged together and therefore fold against each other concertina style. The shutters can be free hanging or used with a track, which helps to guide and support the panels.
Bifold panels can be configured to where panels open all to one side or to where they open to both sides of the door.
Bipass window shutters are a great option for where space is at a premium. These plantation shutters are placed on an over-head track which allows the shutters to move horizontally, across the window or door. Using this system, your shutters will not protrude into your room. This configuration is only available with a double or triple (or more) overhead track. A longer over-head track can also be used to allow the shutter to completely bypass the opening, leaving full access for the window or opening.
