This will help you decide on what type of shutter works best for you in your property it’s not a decision you want to rush as its a large investment I’ll list a few of the shutters types below:
This is a full height plantation shutters doors that can be used in a casement, sash or bay window we can split.The opening slat so you can leave the bottom of the shutter slats closed and tilt to top to let light into the room.
Tier on tier plantation shutters doors work well in offering you the opportunity to open the top shutter doors while leaving the bottom doors closed this will help with keeping the rooms private but still letting lots of daylight onto the room when needed. They look great in the bay windows.
Cafe style shutters are doors that only cover half or a little more of the window so if you don’t want to completely cover the window with a shutter this is probably the best option for you. They can be used in bay, sash or casement windows
Shaped shutters help when you have that shaped window it’s a little more work but it can be done. I’ve had all types of windows that have had to be manufactured so please get in touch if you need help with this one.
Bi-folding plantation shutter doors work very well with french doors they will bifold when not closed to open up the space to the garden but you still have the option of closing completely in the evenings to keep the sun out of the room or heat within the room and a great for adding extra security to the home when your not at home.
Sliding door plantation shutters work extremely well if space is an issue and you don’t want the doors bifolding into the room. Or if you have a sliding glass door with a fixed panel of glass you can slide the shutters to the fixed side of the door frame. The doors run on a tracked system and are smooth and very quiet
Many companies will use individual framed units which are then butted together to dress the window. We may use this mounting style in a traditional Victorian bay, for example, where there are large mullions between the window frames. In more modern windows, where we can, we will use a completely different method to create a complete frame using a bay or corner posts.
Bay posts are standard 135 degrees but can be slightly different angles and are a solid vertical internal frame post that follows the angle of your bay window. Corner posts are used for a box or square bay windows and turn at 90 degrees. The idea of the box post is to give us the mounting for the door panels and be able to build a complete boxed framed unit to match your windows in which we can hang these door panels. We would say here that, unlike curtains, our shutters cannot be completely withdrawn from the window. All panels will open for access to clean the window but the centre sections will fold over the side when opened.
If you want to send us a photo of your windows with the dimensions, we can try and assess and advise on this further for you, ahead of a home design visit.
Shutters in a bay window will help the original double glazed windows and will increase insulation in the window space, and make a room warmer by reducing heat loss. Conversely, in the summer months, they keep a room cooler by using the slats to achieve a draft flow of cooler air.
Absolutely. Yes. 100%! All our new customers ponder if interior window shutters are worth the investment but soon come to realize they are a great buy.
Bay window shutters, and indeed all our shutters, are costed on the overall size of the window and the material used for the shutters – we have a wide product range for you to choose from.
Shutters are not expensive when you consider your alternative options and how long they’re going to last.
We offer a full design and installation service and we would always recommend this over self- fit. We take responsibility for taking the measurements to the exact millimetre and the angles required to provide a perfect set of shutters for your bay. We liaise with the factory over any queries they may have regarding production and we will then come and install.
