You know you are getting the highest possible quality shutters from us. That’s because we are certain of the build quality and the raw materials that go into them, including even the paint and hinges. Our guiding principle always was to only use shutters we would want in our own home.
Hardwoods are the very best quality, FSC certified from sustainable sources. Ash, for example, exhibits a beautiful grain on the wood, while poplar provides a silky smooth finish.
Because our background is in interior design, we bring a certain amount of artistry to every shutter installation. It’s something of a passion for us – to deliver not only perfect functionality but very stylishly as well. You will still appreciate the enhancement to your home many years from now.

Full Height Shutters
Our most in-demand shutters are our plantation-style full height model. They suit many window styles and add matchless elegance to any home. Classic designs with clean lines that blend style with practical function.
The classic full-height shutter adds immediate charm and sophistication to any home. Elegance personified, they look beautiful and function perfectly to control sunlight and heat. They are striking and bring a touch of refinement to your home’s street view.
We can supply many configurations but the priority is always what looks best for your home and they must, as a priority, work perfectly with your doors and windows.
Sometimes we suggest a mid-rail too, which is a very useful little detail that adds strength and structural integrity, and enables you to adjust the top and bottom slats independently.
Alternatively, we incorporate a hidden split to achieve a similar effect. Call them tricks of the trade if you will, but it’s touches like that which have made us so successful in the South West.
Light, privacy, sound muffling, insulation – all good reasons why our full height shutters are our biggest sellers. They work in every room, on any window style or shape and look superb.
Shutters for Bay Windows
Our beautiful hardwood shutters are tailor made to suit the unique shape of your bay window, whether three-sided, curved or square bay style.
Our bay window shutters are specifically designed to optimise the flow of light into your room even as the angle of the sun varies throughout the day. They enhance the structure and style of your windows and home, regardless of its period and style.
For example, consider homes from the 1930s through to the 1950s with their typical curved bay windows. Or the square bay Edwardian style and three-sided Victorian style. Our shutters clothe them elegantly and do the very same with these conventional styles when they are adapted for a modern build.
Shutters can be external too and perhaps even more striking and effective in lifting your home’s exterior for an elegantly smart look.
They blend style with practicality in several ways – providing privacy from passers-by, enabling superb light control, muffling external noise and acting as additional insulation for draughty sash windows too. Easy to maintain, their appealing good looks are perfectly adaptable to modern living.
Tier on Tier Shutters
The way to go for taller windows. Tier on tier shutters work especially well in period homes, giving a perfect blend of privacy and light control.
For optimum flexibility with built-in style on taller sash windows, choose these tier on tier shutters. Control distribution of light into your room by choosing half open or fully open.
The top tier works separately from the lower one – separate hinges – meaning you can maintain maximum privacy with the lower panels closed over while the upper ones are open wide to enjoy maximum light.
Regardless of which way you set the panels, you can still achieve privacy using the slats, which are fully adjustable to your desired angle.
While these can operate much like solid panels do, they offer excellent flexibility and variation. That can transform a space in seconds to suit your mood or to savour the day.
Our colour cards offer both standard and custom colours, such as Farrow & Ball for example. Draw on our design skills, based on many years in the interior design business, to complete a stunning new look for your home.
Solid Panel Shutters
A modern variation on a truly classic shutter style, solid panel shutters deliver a whole range of elegant solutions for both modern and period homes. They bring spaces alive with solid panels, imaginatively used.
Timeless stylishness with inbuilt charm, solid panel shutters may be a traditional window treatment but are easily adapted with a touch of flair to give very imaginative character to contemporary homes.
They give you two highly practical results – total blackout and insulation for draughty windows. Sought after by people who need a darkened room to find sleep, they also look superb.
Solid panel shutters complement other styles such as full-height panels and tier-on-tier panels. Set them off with a range of knobs and hinges and imaginative colours and you have a look all your own.
While they may not suit every requirement, solid panel shutters have been highly successful in every installation where we have recommended them.
Shutters for Doors
Also called Bi-folds or French doors, adding tall panels transforms the ordinary into a thing of beauty that graces every room. You can now match widows shutters with similarly styled door panels for a terrific style statement.
Many homes enjoy the great amount of space and additional light provided by French doors, patio doors and sliding external doors. While windows still permit the greatest amount of light inwards, doors are a major consideration too. For added privacy and to control temperatures and light, look no further than wooden door shutters. The range of styles we offer may well tempt you.
Choose from sliding and folding functionality and tasteful styles to create a seamless transition to grace many internal doors and door spaces.
Not only are they made from premium grade and sustainable hardwoods, our door shutters are carefully fitted to skilled craftsman standards. We insist on precise specifications when preparing and installing your door shutters to fit even unusual spaces such as arched and other shapes.
Shutters as Room Dividers
Flexible living space means something that is fast and easy to change – from open plan to something more cosy and intimate, and back again.
From our time in interior design, we learned to master open plan rooms. We always bring design ideas to our clients and you will appreciate this when we describe how room divider shutters can deliver a whole range of options for your home.
Because we are designers and visionaries at heart, we suggest imaginative uses for our high-end hardwood shutters that open up new vistas for lifestyle, work and socialising in your home.
When we were interior designers and began incorporating shutters into our home enhancement plans, we saw immediately that they had far more to offer than just on doors and windows.
For example, we have adapted them as doors between bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, as wardrobe doors, for kitchen larders and – best of all – as dividing screens in open plan spaces.
Imagine being able to transform your living space by simply turning a few panels, changing an open plan space into cosier and intimate smaller sections. That can have magical effects in minutes.
Let us explain how we can achieve it for you.
Custom Shape Shutters
Windows come in all shapes and sizes so we supply bespoke designs to successfully match unusual contours and enhance them stylishly with full functionality. Any window shape can be matched with a bespoke shutter to complement it.
We are proud of the beautiful bespoke shapes we have achieved down the years.
They are nothing less than triumphs of our craft that fit seamlessly and smoothly, and also enhance odd-shaped windows so that they look outstanding and beautiful.
The shape of the window is what drives the design and style for our shutter installations. Only then do we consider panel configuration, slat size and colour. A priority of course is ensuring windows can be accessed for cleaning and opening.
It’s a simple fact for us that for any shape a window cam be made in, we can design a shutter to fit it perfectly. Square, rectangular, arched and triangle windows – all look better with our shutters and add a great deal to a room.
Perfect street-level privacy under control from chic half-height shutters while providing maximum lighting.
These eye-catching café-style shutters blend great light with privacy from passers-by if your room is at street level. Outsiders cannot see in.
The half-height shutters cover the lower part of your window. It means natural sunlight can enter through the higher widow area. We can tailor them to any height and window shape to protect your privacy while enhancing your home’s style.
Café shutters are at their best with slats and fitted to classic sash windows. These graceful and chic shutters echo and enrich the window’s proportions while providing all the functionality you need.
During our on-site design survey at your home, we will be delighted to take you through the features and styles available and explain the many benefits. You will be delighted by the results.

Transform your loft conversion and add oodles of character with special Velux –style shutters that open and tilt on the horizontal axis using our tried-and-trusted installation method.
People don’t think of considering shutters for Velux windows. We know how superbly well they work and how great they look in situ. An imaginative and special style addition for your loft conversion.
Loft Velux windows are often boringly drab affairs and our special shutters change all that! They add a Wow factor to your loft room that will give you pleasure for many years.
Our special installation method means the shutter panels and frames are securely fitted within the glass area. That means they don’t get in the way of opening the window. Ingenious but simple, like many great ideas.
It does mean that the shutter panels are frequently on their horizontal axis and might otherwise swing open and biff you on the head – but our special installation method totally prevents that. You need to see it to believe it!
