For a more traditional old English style of shutter, then solid shutters achieve that perfect look. Solid shutters are made from solid hardwood panels that are not louvred. Still seen in period properties, solid shutters fold back from the window to sit flush against the wall.
They are an incredible look for Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian era properties, where the solid panels follow the architectural lines of their grand, sash windows to retain the traditional feel. Unlike the old traditional style of these homes, where the panels would fold back into recessed shutter boxes; modern day solid shutter panels will fold back neatly against the wall.
Solid shutters achieve a near blackout effect and provide the most warmth and sound insulation, making them perfect for bedrooms. However, they do limit the ability to offer privacy and light control without the functionality of louvres. Yet, when opened, solid shutters give you the beauty of flooding a room with natural light.
Like tier on tier shutters and full height shutters, there is the option of adding a mid-rail to the solid shutter panels. This gives even more flexibility by enabling a combination of a solid bottom panel for privacy and a louvred top panel to control more light entering the room. Furthermore, these top and bottom panels can be split in half to enable them to be opened and closed independently. These options are great for full length windows where a solid panel at the bottom of the window can add that extra level of privacy, insulation and hardy protection from pets and children.
The versatility of solid shutters is incredible. They are not only impressive on large period windows but they also make stunning cupboard or wardrobe doors or sliding doors to create a room divider and partition to larger rooms.
For an even bolder design statement all of our solid shutters come in a selection of finishes and can be customised to match any paint colour of your choice. All of these options can be discussed during a free home design consultation.
