Elegant, Sophisticated, Breath-taking….these are just some of the words our customers use to describe our range of Plantation Shutters.
Blind Trader give you the ultimate choice, our Plantation Shutters are measured by our Window Covering Specialists then manufactured to your personal requirements, you choose the style, the material, the colour and even the louvre size.
All of our Plantation Shutters are manufactured to the highest specification, utilising the Mortise & Tenon jointing system to promote product longevity, higher quality and increased durability. Many companies will use a dowel jointing system, in our experience, we find this is often a cheaper and less durable jointing system.
Windows and Walls are very rarely straight and true, therefore it is imperative that Plantation Shutters are installed by an experiences professional. It is for this reason that Blind Trader only employ the finest window covering specialists in the trade to ensure that your new Plantation Shutters are installed with a precise fit and creating an outstanding finish.
Plantation Shutters are available in a multitude of shapes and styles;
Full Height Style Plantation Shutters
Our most popular style of Plantation Shutter, Full Height Plantation Shutters cover the whole of the window. Mid-Rails can be installed during the manufacturing process to allow complete control over light and privacy to both the top and the bottom of the window.
Tier on Tier Style Plantation Shutters
Tier on Tier Plantation Shutters are designed to have separate shutter panels for the top and bottom sections of your windows. This style of Plantation Shutter gives you the highest degree of flexibility by allowing you to open and close the top or bottom shutters independently of each other.
Café Style Plantation Shutters
One of the most elegant designs of Plantation Shutter, this style originates from continental Europe, where it was primarily used in coffee shops & restaurants. This stunning design is becoming more popular across the UK as it provides a real touch of sophistication to your home.
Only the bottom half of the window is covered, so even when you close your Plantation Shutters the design allows natural light to flood in without losing the sense of privacy. Utilising a three (3) frame system you have the decision to cover as much or as little of the top half of your window, the choice is yours.
Tracked Plantation Shutters
Tracked Plantation Shutters provide you with the perfect solution for dressing large windows and patio doors. This design utilises full height shutters and highly durable mechanisms in a specialist track, this ensures the longevity of such an elegant product.
