Firstly what are plantation shutters, they are window coverings like blinds and curtains all rolled into one but much more effective.
Incredible the first plantation shutters first appeared in ancient Greece and were made from marble, although the name actually comes from the southern region of America as these beautiful craved wooden shutters were mostly seen on grand cotton plantation homes to cover windows, which gave plantation shutters their name.
Plantation shutters, in general, are a louvred with horizontal slates which are designed to slope down, allowing when open more light and fresh air into a room, when the shutter is closed it blocks out nearly all light and noise and reduces the amount of hot or cold air from entering a room, so in summer months it keeps the room cooler, whilst in winter months it prevents warm air escaping from a room on a cold day or night, in turn, effectively reducing energy bills in your home.
Historically these are made from quality hardwood, a cheaper option is to have these shutters made from hybrawood with the outer bones of the shutters being Paulownia Hardwood with an ultra-durable aluminium core running through each of the polyvinyl slates, this range of shutters are highly durable, look fabulous on any window in your home also offering great value for money.
The cost of this type of shutter is dependent on the size of the window it covers, to give you an estimation you can use our website “Shutter Price Calculator” ideal for getting an idea of the price.
Bay Window Shutters
Bay window shutters have to be custom-made to exact measurements as these windows comprise complex angles & unusual shapes, we can custom-make designs for box bays, curved bays and traditional Victorian bay windows all at our workshop in Guildford.
Bay window shutters look fabulous, not only on the inside of your home but also on the outside too, which offers your home more privacy by tilting the shutter slats to an angle that will still allow light into a room whilst blocking out any prying eyes from the road.
All our range of shutter styles is suitable for bays, although in our opinion tier on tier shutters look and operate the best.
You can use our online calculator to estimate if you’re within budget, although we would recommend one of our Guildford-based technicians visit your property as bays are notoriously difficult to accurately measure before giving you a free no obligation quote.
Also, our experienced technician will be able to answer any worries or concerns you may have on the spot rather than you having to call out Guildford head office.
