Which Styles of Shutters Are Best for Casement Windows?
What style of casement window shutters you decide on is dependent on two things:
If, for example, you have a smaller window, you will likely want to go for our Full Height shutters. These cover the full height of your window. It is also advisable that you opt for smaller slats for such windows – 64mm or 76mm is perfect.
For larger windows, there is more room to play with. Café Style shutters cover the bottom section of your window (half or otherwise), offering a perfect combination of light and privacy.
Tier-on-tier shutters cover the entirety of your windows, but unlike Full Height, they are divided into two sections: one top and one bottom. These sections can be opened separately, giving you the choice of full coverage, partial, or none.
Another option would be Solid Raised shutters. These work with any sized window and are worth considering if you wish to block out as much light as possible.
