Having more than 35 years experience in the interior window shutters industry we have measured and installed a vast amount of plantation shutters. We install in virtually every possible room. Alongside our most common location to install shutters, your home, we also install our outstanding interior shutters in offices, commercial locations and hotels, as well as the odd wardrobe and cupboard.
As we know, all the best parties end up in the kitchen and it's no surprise. Kitchens have always been the most popular spot in our homes, we spend most of our time there and that's why it's always a recommendation of ours to install shutters in. Wooden shutters are much more versatile and flexible than blinds or curtains. You can decide to have them in many different styles and materials allowing you to have something in your home that is stunning to look at while allowing you that sought after peace of mind with their practicality and privacy.
Another reason for choosing plantation shutters for the kitchen windows is that they are very easy to maintain, not only in terms of how practical they are to open and close but how easy it is to get them clean. You can use an ostrich feather, lamb’s wool duster or even a static cling duster and then just swipe the surface with a damp cloth. Read our shutters after care instructions for more information.
What is the best shutter style for kitchen windows and doors? There is no absolute correct answer to this as all of the styles of shutters and the colours and materials that they come in would work well in any kitchen. It all depends of individual taste and size of the window in question. For example, some customers want more privacy, while others are looking to maximise the amount of light in the room. Many of them are also looking to add more style to their kitchen windows or doors. Whatever your reason is, wooden shutters are likely to be the best option.
Our most popular shutter styles are the full height style which covers the whole height of the window or door allowing you to open or fold the panels to either side, café style which cover only the bottom part of the window leaving the top part open which is a great look, and finally the tier on tier style which also covers the whole height of the window but allows you to open and close either the top and bottom or left and right panels independently.
We also have a wide range of shutter materials for you to choose from starting from our Craftwood MDF to our premium White Teak wood. Our range is designed to suit all budgets and the right choice for you depends on just that, you. With 48 colour finishes or 20 stain finishes or even a custom colour match option to allow you to pick your own colour, typically chosen for a flash of brightness. You don’t need to worry about it initially because we will explain every little detail in depth to you when we come to measure your windows or doors.
