The Shutter Advent - Day 5 - Tier on Tier

For day 5 we explore a particularly popular shutter style - Tier on Tier. 

Like Full Height style, the Tier on Tier style shutters cover the whole height of the window. The difference between Tier on Tier, as the name suggest that there is a bottom and top tier of panels, completely separated at a certain point up the window (think stable door!). It is a hugely popular choice for road facing windows, bay windows or Living Room windows where you would like lots of flexibility in the daily use of you shutters.

What is the difference between full height and tier on tier?

The main difference between Tier on Tier and Full-Height Shutters is that with two levels of panels opening separately to one another like a stable door, the shutters can offer versatile use and panel opening combining the benefits of both café style and full height shutters, whereas on full height shutters you can adjust the slats independently but not the panels.

What windows are appropriate for tier on tier shutters?

Tier on tier shutters can be fitted to any window you wish. We tend to advise against this style of shutter for particularly small windows or for clients looking to reduce the amount of wood framing on panels. For these smaller windows or a design preference of as little framing as possible, full height style shutters would be the better option in these instances.

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.
