Are you looking for shutters or blinds in Northern Ireland? Why not book an appointment with a member of our experienced team for more information about the range of plantation shutters on offer?
With over 30 years of experience in crafting and kitting the homes of Northern Ireland out with blinds to suit their needs, our expert team offers free home consultations to review which type of blinds best suits your space.
The plantation style of shutter became popular in locations of warmer climates, where this type of window covering was most practical due to its modern look and versatility. Whether you wanted to keep your home warm by closing the shutters or cool a space down by opening them, the plantation shutters suited every type of home.
Plantation shutters differ from the standard variation of shutter as they have a horizontal ‘louvred’ design rather than one full panel. The plantation shutter is designed to slope and this is to ensure more fresh air and light from outside can come through the shutters when they are open.
For those who prefer to keep the light out, plantation shutters are also great for this, as the solid panels keep unwanted light at bay when the louvres are closed. They also limit the amount of cold air coming into your home when compared to the traditional vertical or roman style of blinds.
Here at Village Blinds and Shutters, we have three types of plantation shutters available for installation in your home. These are:
All of the shutters available at Village Blinds and Shutters are made from a high-quality composite material and upon request can be manufactured in a range of colours to suit a range of interior styles and décor.
Café-style shutters are ideal for smaller window spaces, with the shutter covering the bottom half of the window only.
Café-style shutters are a cost-effective option if you decide to install shutters in your home when compared to the tier-on-tier shutters. They are great for providing privacy but still having an unobstructed amount of light coming in at the top of the window which is ideal in spaces such as hallways and living areas.
Our café-style shutters are suitable for most window types and are customisable in height.
Our full-height shutters are a versatile product that is suitable for almost all window types. The sophisticated aesthetic provides full window coverage and offers customers privacy when the shutters are closed over. The sloping design of our full-height shutters also ensures maximum light reduction, making them an ideal choice for spaces such as bedrooms.
Full-height shutters can also be used to cover doors in your home.
Here at Village Blinds and Shutters, our tier-on-tier shutters which are also known as ‘double hung shutters’ are designed so customers can open the top and bottom sections of their shutters separately from one another. If you like the option of unobstructed light at the top of your windows, tier-on-tier shutters could be the best option for you.
The tiered appearance of our tier-on-tier shutters provides an elegant and private finish for your space.
These shutters, like our full-height shutters, are suitable for most window types and can be made to order with customised heights available.
