Owing to their solid, all covering nature, solid window shutters are perfect for darkening your room space. Whilst not producing a complete ‘blackout’ effect, they do a wonderful job of creating dark, peaceful bedrooms or complementing elegant interiors of high-ceilinged living rooms.
Solid shutters look most striking when adorning the windows of traditional Victorian houses and flats with distinct Regency style. Picture those lining Brighton’s seafront or Bath’s distinctive rows of limestone properties. It is in installations such as these where solid wood shutters truly shine.
That said, our mantra has always been that we can install shutters onto practically any window. So, whether your property is hundreds of years old or brand new, solid interior wood shutters will make a fabulous addition to your home.
What are solid wood shutters?
‘Solid window shutters’ is the term given to any shutter whose panels are not louvered or slatted. They are made of solid hardwood and, as such, let in far less light than their more contemporary peers. They’re a favourite for those who want to keep a traditional Victorian look for their windows, in keeping with old , Regency-styled bay windows that rise from floor to ceiling.
