Sash windows shutters are one of the most popular window shutter styles found in London homes. These shutters are perfect to control privacy and the light coming in the room.
There are multiple types of sashes but the most predominant are double and single hung windows. Single hung sash windows have a singular sash lift usage whereas double hung windows have independently operated panes at both the top and bottom of the window. Panes are operated to allow air to come through into the room whilst the window section remains flat.
Fitting shutters to sash windows
The simple nature of sash windows allows for a greater range of design options available to your shutters. Any styles of shutter can work brilliantly when installed and rarely require additional solutions such as specialised posts or build outs which are often needed on complex windows such as bays or irregular shapes.
Sash windows have the majority of framing options available to them which means you will often be able to choose between having your shutters face fixed outside the architrave, face fixed to the window or side fixed within the architrave, so the shutters fit perfectly within the window area. The majority of homeowners look to have their sash window shutters brilliantly integrated into the window/ architrave space so that they keep as flush as possible against the wall.
