Plantation shutters are a stylish window covering that offers a number of aesthetic and practical benefits. They can be customised to suit any space and offer complete control over privacy, light and insulation. They’re also easy to clean, providing a more durable alternative to traditional fabric based window dressings. Here at ShutterStyle, we provide quality shutters throughout the Wickham and Gateshead area and are committed to helping you find the perfect fit for your home.
Our Bermuda shutters are crafted from a seamless blend of painted MDF and ABS louvres and come in a choice of 12 stylish colour choices. They’re ideal if you live in a busy family home and want something that can withstand the knocks and scrapes of everyday life. If you’d like more of a natural look, we can also provide custom colours to meet your needs.
MDF is a durable material that’s resistant to moisture and therefore more hardwearing than wood. This helps to reduce warping, cracking and sagging over time. It’s also easier to keep clean than wood and a good choice for areas that experience high levels of humidity.
Unlike some cheaper options, a quality plantation shutter will have a water-resistant coating to help protect against condensation and other moisture build up. This makes them a much more long-lasting solution and a good choice for kitchens, bathrooms and wetrooms.
The full height shutters featured in this bedroom installation showcase the versatility of these beautiful window coverings. Offering ultimate control over privacy and light, these shutters can be angled to allow the desired amount of sunlight into any room. They’re a fantastic option for any space and can work well in bedrooms, living rooms and even on stair landings.
If you’re looking for a more economical plantation shutter, consider composite or polymer/faux wood shutters. These are typically milled from compressed timber and can include materials such as PVC, so they’re a more affordable alternative to wooden shutters but they won’t last as long as wood. They can however be a great option for people who suffer from allergies, as they’re non-porous and not susceptible to mould or mildew growth. They can also be stainable, allowing you to customise them to suit your décor. plantation shutters gateshead
