Dining Room Shutters

What is your favourite room in your house? This question will surely generate a wide variety of answers for all sorts of reasons. What we can certainly say is the dining room is one of the most used places in any home (some would say it’s the soul of the home) as it’s a place where family and friends come together to talk, laugh and enjoy delicious meals in one room. For many, this area is used daily or for others more for more formal dining or special occasions. In any case, it is a multi functional space where we eat, entertain or even work.

Dining Room Shutters FAQ


Can I match my shutters to my dining room décor?

Yes, your shutters are made for you and your home so whatever you are looking to do with design or colouring we can help. Can’t find the colour you want in our standard library? Not to worry, custom colouring is available in our Hardwood, Pearlwood and Ultra Wood materials.

I want versatile use of light for my dining room when I’m entertaining – what is the best style for me?

If you want to be able to carefully control the light levels of your room using your shutters, we recommend a full height shutter with either a divider rail or hidden break or a tier on tier style shutter. Each of these styles offers the opportunity to control light in the top and bottom of the panel separately so you can let as much, or as little, light in as you like.

Are shutters easy to clean?

Yes, shutters are easy to clean. You can regularly dust your shutters with an ostrich feather duster which we provide as a gift from us to you at your installation appointment. For a deeper clean, or to remove a mark or stain you can give the entire window structure a gentle rubdown with a dry and clean cloth on both sides. Follow this by dampening a cloth with warm water and wipe on all visible surfaces. Never spray directly on the shutters themselves – it is important not to use cleaning solutions that can potentially damage the shutter surfaces. Wipe away the liquid with another dry-cleaning cloth and never allow the liquid to dry on the surface, as this may leave water marks or stains. For more information you can check out our aftercare guide.

Window shutters can virtually blend with any home, from period homes to more contemporary style ones.
