Kitchen Shutters: The Best Shutter Option for Kitchens

Usually, space in kitchens is scarce. And often, window stills are in close proximity to the kitchen sink and taps. So kitchens require a sturdy and easy to maintain window covering that can withstand high moisture and humidity levels and requires little space.

Plantation shutters are the perfect solution for kitchens. They offer complete privacy and light control, meaning no glare from the sun while cooking or washing the pots. And they are made to fit against the window, taking less room than curtains and blinds.

UPVC shutters for kitchens

UPVC shutters are waterproof making them ideal for kitchens. Unlike wooden shutters, UPVC shutters are resistant to moisture and have an excellent temperature operating property that prevents warping, peeling and flaking.

UPVC shutters are a cost-effective investment that go above and beyond the initial investment. Not only are they multi-functional, but they don’t compromise on style either. They fit right in with contemporary and traditional decor, and are easy to maintain in a busy home or commercial environment.

The hard-wearing and easy-to-clean finish ensure your window covering will look great for years to come. Our UPVC shutters are available in any colour and come with marine grade stainless steel hinges as standard to prevent rusting.

 

Plantation shutters are a fantastic choice for kitchen windows. For more information on kitchen shutters, or to book your free no obligation in-house survey, contact Totally Shutters on 0203 960 6963. All shutters come with a 5-year guarantee.

How to Choose the Right Shutters for Every Room

Plantation shutters are both a practical and stylish solution. They can be used to block eternal light, control the amount of outside light entering your home and block out the weather. And unlike what many people believe, shutters can be installed in any room of the home, regardless of style and decor.

If you’re still not 100% sure which shutter blinds to get for your home, this style guide will help you with your choice, dependant on which room:

Living Room

If you overlook a busy road, tier-on-tier plantation shutters are a great option. Not only do they provide complete privacy, the upper panels can be folded back to allow maximum daylight. Tier-on-tier shutters have the flexibility to access the window locks easily allow for air ventilation.

Bedroom

Solid shutters are a good choice for bedrooms as they block out daylight and make your room feel secure at night. But if you want utter privacy without going solid, full-height shutters are probably a better option for you.

Bathroom

Whether you have a poorly-ventilated bathroom or enjoy a long soak, UPVC waterproof blinds are perfect as they withstand the steamiest of rooms. What’s more, UPVC waterproof blinds are available in any colour. If your bathroom window is small, opt for a full height shutter with narrow slats as this will make your window look bigger and more uniform.

Kitchen

If your window is near the cooking area, UPVC waterproof blinds are highly recommended because they’re hard-wearing, easy to clean and guaranteed to be warp-proof. As UPVC waterproof blinds look just like wooden shutters, you can mix and match both materials easily in an open-plan space. However, if you’re looking to hide an ugly view outside or wanting more privacy, cafe-style shutters are also a good option for kitchens.

Dining room

If you use the dining room for evenings only, why not consider a mood-enhancing, darker shade for your shutters in either a stain or paint colour. If your dining room doubles up as a home office or homework space, why not opt for tier-on-tier shutters to help illuminate glare fatigue from your computer screen.
