Louvred Shutters or Solid Shutters: Which to Choose?


When investing in made-to-measure window shutters, it is essential to know your options and which one to choose. Louvred shutters and solid shutters both come with different benefits. Whether you’re looking for privacy, light control or noise reduction, this article will provide all you need-to-know about the two shutter styles.

What are louvred shutters and solid shutters?

Louvred shutters are a versatile shutter available in full-height, tier on tier and cafe-style options, in different materials. Louvred shutters feature adjustable slats so that you are in full control of privacy, light and more. Louvred shutters are ideal for both contemporary and traditional properties.

Solid shutters are different in terms of design as they feature statement wood panels that allow maximum light when open and no light or outside noise when closed. Solid shutters are a great choice for those who live in older homes that suffer from central heating escaping through the windows.

Where in the home can louvred shutters and solid shutters be installed?

As both louvred shutters and solid shutters are incredibly adaptable, they can be installed in any room of your home, whether in the bedroom, living room or bathroom. Both styles boast similar practicalities, the shutter option you choose will ultimately depend on your personal preference and your room’s requirements.
