Understanding Shutter Louver Sizes: A Comprehensive Guide

Choosing the perfect shutters for your home involves more than just selecting a colour or material. One of the key aspects that significantly influences the aesthetic and functionality of your shutters is the size of the louvers. Here, we delve into the different louver sizes available and how to decide which one is right for your windows and overall design preferences.


The Importance of Louver Size

The decision on shutter louver sizes is highly personal and typically aligns with your design tastes, as well as the shape and size of your windows. Smaller louvers can create a classic look, while larger louvers offer a more modern, minimalistic feel. At Plantation Shutters Ltd we aren’t a window shutter company that just sell shutters; we provide a full service that includes expert advice, skill, and knowledge to help you make the best choice for your home.


Exploring Shutter Louver Sizes

Traditional  (47mm)

Our 47mm louver is the smallest option available, designed to offer the highest level of privacy.

For a more charming look the traditional style tilt rod is the way to go. The 47mm Slat is available with tilt rod only and is elegantly placed in the centre of your shutters as the rod is used to adjust the louvers.

Due to its size, it allows less light to enter compared to wider louvers, making it an excellent choice for areas in your home where privacy is paramount, such as small bathrooms, utility rooms, or walk-in wardrobes.

Classic Range (64mm)

The Classic range features a 64mm louver, which is a popular choice for its traditional and timeless appeal. These smaller louvers add a pleasing ambience to most rooms and can often work better with slightly smaller panels. While they allow slightly less light compared to larger slats when open, the additional louvers per panel create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Key Features:

  • Classic, timeless appeal
  • More louvers per panel
  • Creates a cozy ambience
  • Available in all shutter materials


In Vogue Range (76mm)

The In Vogue range, with its 76mm louvers, is perfect for those who want a balance between classic and modern styles. This size offers fewer louvers per panel compared to the Classic range, allowing more light to enter and providing a contemporary, simpler finish while still maintaining a cozy feel.


Key Features:

  • Contemporary design
  • Balance between classic and modern
  • Fewer louvers per panel, more light
  • Available in all shutter materials


Modern Range (89mm)


The Modern range features 89mm louvers, ideal for those seeking a stylish and contemporary look. These larger louvers create a minimalistic, fresh finish, allowing plenty of light to pour in when open. They also offer a relatively uncluttered view when looking out, making them perfect for modern, clean spaces.


Key Features:

  • Stylish and contemporary look
  • Larger louvers for more light and clear views
  • Minimalistic and fresh finish
  • Available in all shutter materials
