Adding a stylish yet functional element to your home can be hard. Many home furnishings look stylish but do not provide the functionality you need. Plantation Shutters can bring both to your home. These great products keep the elegance and practicality of the window coverings that were used on plantations in the deep south of America and ranches throughout the dry arid environments of Africa and Australia. Shutter World brings this small part of frontier glamour to the UK with their great range of bespoke, made to measure window covers.

Shutters became common place on plantation houses and ranches in America, Africa and Australia around the late 1600s. With the heat and dryness of these new frontiers causing major struggles for settlers it is easy to see why they developed functional techniques to manage the conditions. Plantations started using slatted wooden framed covers designed specifically for use in hot environments; they can be closed slightly to stop the sun coming in but at the same time allow air to flow freely, helping to keep your home cool. Today they are used around the world in hot and humid climates for the same reasons as 400 years ago.

At Shutter World we have been supplying and installing window coverings all over the UK for over 25 years. Although the UK doesn't need shutters for climate control they can still provide numerous other benefits, such as adding to the aesthetics of your home. Our wide range of products comes in a variety of styles and colours making them the perfect addition to any home.

Although temperature control is not the main factor in the UK's adoption and popularity of shutters they can be just as practical in a range of other ways. Each shutter is adjustable thanks to a built in lever so you can change the size of the opening depending on how much privacy and shading you want. They are incredibly versatile and can be used in places where traditional window coverings don't fit. Products are built specifically to suit the size and shape of the opening you are trying to cover, giving you the perfect fit every time.

From arched, tall and angled windows, wardrobes, octagon shaped windows and even portholes, shutters can provide beautiful solutions for every home. They are also great insulators, keeping heat in during winter months and, by being made from absorbent natural wood, they can also provide sound insulation and dampen background noise.

As well as being functional shutters can add character to your home and look great with every style of interior. From traditional wooden frames to contemporary aluminium products, here at Shutter World there is a design for everyone.
