Why Choose Victorian Bay Window Shutters?

First off, shutters are surprisingly easy to fit and install on bay windows. All you have to do is download our easy-to-follow guides and follow the step-by-step instructions. We even have measuring templates for you to print out. And with their movable slats and highly customisable design options, shutters are ideal for optimum light and privacy management. On top of this, they give extra ventilation and insultation to your home, ensuring you can keep the heat in or a draft out, depending on your needs.

That is all without mentioning the fact that shutters will be totally bespoke to your Victorian bay window. This means that your shutters will be totally unique to your windows, providing the best look and fit possible. Oh, and if all that wasn’t enough, they look great, too. But you already knew that!

What Style Should I Go For?

When thinking about Victorian bay window shutters, choosing the right style for you is half the work. As mentioned above, shutters are great for managing light and privacy, so this should always be considered. Whether you go for Full height, Tier-on-tier, Solid raised, or Café style, our shutters are sure to meet your needs.

If you are thinking about bay window half shutters, then our café style shutters are a great option. Not only do they offer a perfect blend of privacy and light management, but they are a very popular option with Victorian bay windows. Indeed, many traditional shutters come in this style.

And with four different slat sizes (64mm, 76mm, 89mm, and 114mm) and pushrods (central, offset, clearview, and hidden) you can have your shutters just as you like them. On the pushrods, period window shutters often come with visible pushrods, so our central and offset rods are always worth considering.


For those looking for something a little different, why not think about our Solid shutters? With their solid panels, they offer a bold look in a style that more closely resembles the shutters of yesteryear.

What About Colour?

In your Victorian house, traditional interior window shutters can really bring your home’s entire look together. In those older homes, going for a heritage-inspired look is always the best way to go to ensure an aesthetic consistency. When it comes to traditional plantation shutters, you cannot go wrong with white. Besides fitting in perfectly with any décor, white shutters will add a touch of elegance to your room, as well as a bright and airy atmosphere.

Besides our whites and off-whites, you have other options, too. If you go for our Natural Hardwood shutters, you have the choice of several wood stains and limewash finishes. Stained shutters serve to add a more historic look to your home, blending in seamlessly with older buildings which boast a more historic aesthetic. They are especially suitable in rooms with timber fixtures such as wooden floors or timber framing.
