The Shutter Advent - Day 18 - Shaped Shutters

For day 18 of The Shutter Advent we are looking at shaped window shutters.

Most windows are built into rectangular shapes, but window shapes are not limited to this classic example. Some homes have some stunning shaped windows as part of their architecture including circular, arched, and triangular windows and shutters are the ideal dressing for these windows. Unlike other window dressings, shutters are custom made down to the smallest detail so installing them to your shaped windows doesn’t mean entirely covering the space but instead can be manufactured to the exact shape of the window. For this reason, many homeowners choose shutters to dress their shaped window and it makes sense - when you have a stunning window shape as a feature in your room why would you want to cover the shape with a rectangular shutter as would be require for curtains or blinds.

Can shutters be made in any shape?

Yes, shutters can be made in almost any shape to match the widow behind. For small surcharge Intelligent manufacturing methods make it possible for the shape of a window to be replicated in the shutter using stencilling.

Are there any limitations on shaped shutters?

Shaped shutters must be made in wood ranges to keep them lightweight as these wooden materials have more manufacturing flexibility. This makes them more suitable for particularly large windows which is required as shaped windows are quite often larger than standard rectangular windows.

Does it matter where I get my shaped shutters from?

Shaped shutters are much more complex to measure and manufacture than rectangular windows and so require a higher level of expertise and experience. Because of this, you don’t want to bet on less experienced companies who use cheaper and lower quality manufacturing methods as often the finish will be representative of this poorer quality.

I love my new blinds. They are high quality, look beautiful and were at the most competitive price. The fitters were also very polite and efficient.

Plantation shutters visited my flat 20 January 2022 to measure, discuss slat size and material, and give me a free estimate which I was happy with.
