Plantation shutters are an ideal choice for dressing wide windows. Their made-to-measure frames can fit even the largest of windows, they’re easily operated, durable and of course look super stylish. In this article, we take a look at the benefits of plantation shutters for wide windows, and offer expert advice when it comes to choosing the right shutters for your home.
The ultimate choice for patio doors
The widest windows in the home are often patio doors. While these windows are a great feature, they can prove tricky to dress. Shutters are a great option as, being fitted to a track, they’re easy to open and close and you can stack the panels at the sides when not in use, helping you keep a tidy environment. And not only that, they’re also available in a range of colours and finishes to suit your needs - even water-resistant options
Suitable for every room
While a fantastic choice for patio doors, Hillarys plantation shutters can be made to fit wide windows in any room. We’ve dressed this living room in Element Grey shutters from our exclusive House Beautiful collection, which create a striking feature at the window.
Complete stability for the widest of windows
The best thing about tracked shutters is that they offer complete stability, no matter how wide your window. The shutter panels are hinged to special tracks, resulting in a really sturdy frame, so you can use your shutters day-in, day-out worry-free.
A cost-effective solution
Dressing wide windows can be a costly affair due the amount of space you need to cover, but we offer shutters for all budgets. Just ask your advisor about our Craftwood collection if you’re looking for a cost-effective solution. All our shutters come with a five-year guarantee too.
Divide a room
As well as dressing wide windows, shutters can also be used as a divide in open plan spaces. You could choose to separate your living and dining rooms, kitchen and dining space, or even create a divide in the bedroom for a dressing area. Whatever you’d like to do, our advisors will help you choose the shutters that will best meet your needs.
Enjoy energy efficiency
All shutters have energy efficient properties, but choose solid panels for your wide windows and you’ll benefit even further. Solid panels act as a layer of insulation at the window, blocking out draughts and stopping heat from escaping. They’re also good at reducing noise, so make a great choice for rooms that require peace and quiet. Solid panels are available in a variety of colours and finishes and we also offer a custom colour service.
Control the light in your conservatory
Conservatories are one of our favourite rooms in the home, but finding the right dressing for all those windows can prove to be a challenge. Shutters are a great option as they give you complete control over light and privacy – a must in a conservatory. Tilt the louvres to let the light stream though, or close them to block it out. You can also open the panels fully to let the natural light flood in. Ask your advisor to talk you through the options if you’re considering shutters for your conservatory.
