A practical option for any home, external shutters filter light and increase privacy. Follow these tips from Nick Garratt, director of The New England Shutter Company, to ensure that you choose the right style for your room.

  • Consider the climate and how your shutters will weather in those conditions. I recommend using Western Red cedar as it’s a material that improves with age.
  • If you decide to paint your shutters, use an acrylic finish as it is water-resistant.
  • Our most popular style is ‘Soho’. Its modern, architectural aesthetic is really on-trend.
  • Different window frames suit different shutters. Cafe-style shutters usually cover the lower half of a window and provide privacy while allowing light into the room, and full-height shutters are a good option for sash windows and French doors. Victorian bay windows will benefit from tier-on-tier versions, because this type allow the top and bottom panels to be opened independently.
  • Employ an experienced carpenter to fit your shutters. Most companies, offer a full installation service. Pictured above: these striking shutters are part of Bar Tomate, designed by Sandra Tarruella interiors practice, in Mexico.
