Plantation shutters / Interior Wood Shutters

This is the term used to describe the window treatment itself. Also, you may hear people in Manchester describe them as ‘internal shutters’ or even shutter blinds.

Styles of Shutters for Manchester Homes

Manchester shutters styles vary depending upon the type of property. Many homes in Manchester and the Oldham area have replacement windows, with uPVC windows being commonplace.

Tier on Tier shutters are a good design on uPVC bay windows as you can fold open the top panels and leave the bottom panels close. You can still always tilt the shutter blades (aka slats or louvers) but leaving the bottom shutters on a tier on tier design closed over gives privacy.

Café Shutters can be called half height shutters as this describes the fact the plantation shutters are designed to only cover the bottom of the window. If having curtains and shutters, this is a good option.

Full height shutters would cover your window or door, top to bottom. For 70’ terraced homes in Manchester or homes with windows that are not tall, this is a good shutter design.

This is a very brief introduction to different shutter styles you can choose. Don’t be confused about shutters and instead contact us to arrange our local Manchester shutter consultant to visit and discuss your needs.
