DIY Shutters – really? Self-install shutters in my home without an installer? Is that even possible?
We know. We hear that often from customers wanting to buy shutters from us. However, the resounding answer is YES – DIY plantation shutters are super simple to measure and fit and, importantly, are much cheaper to buy versus companies that visit you in your home to sell them to you.
Do I have to make my own shutters if it’s DIY?
No! Not at all. Your shutters are delivered to you completely manufactured and ready to install. They are super easy to install – made to your specification and ready to fit.
What do I receive?
It depends upon how you’ve designed your shutters when you placed your order. However, a typical set of shutters will arrive with
We want to make clear that our DIY plantation shutters are provided with all the hardware you need. The hinges are attached to the frames and panels and our ‘drop pin’ hinge system makes installation easy.

Why Choose DIY?
The reasons are numerous, but the key factor is price. Wooden plantation shutters can be expensive – the majority of companies who come to your home to measure your windows for shutters will charge upwards of £300m² for custom shutters. However, with our pricing, you are looking in the region of £160 - £200m² depending upon which range of shutters you choose.
There is no difference in terms of quality nor in the way the shutters are provided to you. They are made in the same way and supplied with hardware, holes drilled and everything ready to go. The price difference is simply down to the material you’ve selected.
While the price of the product is cheaper by buying DIY window shutters for self-fitting, there is no compromise on quality.
Are These DIY Shutters the Same as Other Companies Sell?
We’ll let you into a little secret…. Yes. The self-install shutters you buy on this site are sold for around 1/3 more by other companies you may come across online.
