Tier on tier shutters are a popular choice. They are a versatile design, combining the benefits of both full height and cafe style shutters in one. But how do you know if they are the right choice for your windows?
Below we’ve compiled some facts and tips about tier on tier shutters to help you decide if they are the right window covering solution for you:
The Advantages of Tier On Tier Shutters
Tier on tier shutters come in one frame and cover the full height of your window. However, unlike full height shutters, they have a dividing point where the panels split into two tiers. This can be halfway up your windows, or in line with the rails and design of your windows.
The benefits of this design are simple; all panels can be tilted differently, offering maximum light and privacy control when needed. The top tier can be kept open to optimise the light in the room, while the bottom tier can be closed to ensure all-important privacy.
Like all made-to-measure plantation shutter styles, tier on tier shutters also offer insulation against extreme outdoor temperatures and offer noise reduction for external sounds.
The Disadvantages of Tier On Tier Shutters
Tier on tier shutters complement large windows but can be overpowering on small windows. With two sets of bottom and top rails, they can make a small window look busy and block out light where the tiers meet. Full height and cafe style shutters are more suited for smaller windows.
