9:34AM 27 September 2022

If you’re currently shopping around for window dressings, but reaching a decision is proving more difficult than you’d thought, then this article is for you. Indeed, with so many options out there, it can be a real headache. Should I go for curtains, blinds, or made to measure shutters? Well, we’re here to tell you that the latter is the best option. Though, we would say that. We ARE The Shutter Store after all. However, if you’ll allow us to present the facts, we’re sure you’ll agree with us.


Made to measure shutters

Each of our shutters are made to the exact specifications of your windows – or doors. This means you’re guaranteed a perfect fit every single time. Unlike other off-the-shelf window dressings, our shutters will fit totally flush to their reveals, meaning that you don’t have to worry about drafts. This in turn makes your home more energy efficient, helping save you money on energy bills.

They’re Versatile

It’s fair to say that when someone thinks of shutters, they will almost always image a white, full height shutter. And for good reason – it’s a classic look after all. But made to measure shutters are incredibly versatile, coming in a range of colours, stains, and designs. If privacy is your main concern, then Full Height shutters will be perfect. If, however, you would like more light to come into your home, then Café Style or Tier-on-Tier shutters are the ones for you. And if you have an unusually shaped window such as a triangle or a circle, why not fit it with some of our special shape shutters?


Long Lasting

Each one of our shutters are made to the highest of standards from the best materials. This guarantees you a top-quality product that looks amazing and will last for years to come. Yes, that’s right – years. Given the correct care, your made to measure shutters can last for 10, 15, 20 years, or even longer. Plus, with every purchase from The Shutter Store, you’ll have a 5-year, no quibble guarantee.

Did you know that shutters have soundproofing qualities? Well, they do. In fact, we even measured it. We had an Audio Systems Engineer look at the soundproofing impact of made to measure shutters, and they found that, when closed, shutters can reduce noise pollution on an average of around 7dB(A). You don’t get that with curtains and blinds.
