Tier on Tier Shutters are a more flexible option for adding both style and functionality to your windows. The advantage of plantation shutters is that they are a sturdy choice built into the recess. Whether you want to keep your home warm by closing the shutters or cool a space down by opening them, the plantation shutters will suit each need.
These shutters function similarly to the traditional Full Height shutter but they do not reach the top to bottom of the window in one door, but are split into two doors on top of each other on each window. They still feature horizontal ‘louvred’ slats across the panels. The plantation shutter is designed to allow these slats to tilt. This allows control over how much light and air is allowed in, whilst still being as practical as they are stylish.
The main advantage of choosing Tier on Tier over Full Height is that you have more flexibility. You can open each door individually, giving you greater control over how much light and air you wish to allow in. When all of them are fully closed they will still limit cold air coming into the home and block out light, but they can allow air or light through each individual door as you require.
Here at Village Blinds and Shutters, we have different types of Tier on Tier Shutters available for installation in your home. Each of these will help the shutter better meet your function or design needs. They are;
A central tilt rod is the traditional style for Tier on Tier Plantation Shutters. This tilt rod is attached to the panel in the centre and runs vertically down the louvred slats. This ensures that when you move the slats they will all move together. Often this is a popular choice for more traditional style homes.
A hidden tilt is the more modern variation for a Tier on Tier Plantation Shutter. Rather than having the tilt rod run down the centre, it is positioned at the backside of the panel. It performs the same function, ensuring the louvred slats move together. These have seen increasing popularity in more modern homes, but are often chosen simply for a preference of not having the tilt road easily accessible.
From light and airy to dark and mysterious, We’ve got the perfect shutter colour option for your home.
If you have a RAL Colour number you would like for your shutters, speak to your design consultant about the options available.
Tier On TierPlantation Shutters are a great option for installation in your home for various reasons, some of which include:
Not sure Tier on Tier Plantation Shutters are for you? We also have two other styles of plantation shutters available;
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.
