The Pros and Cons of Tier on Tier Shutters

Like full height shutters, tier on tier shutters cover the entire window. However, tier on tier shutters have independently opening top and bottom panels allowing for maximum light and privacy control. As a result, tier on tier shutters are the perfect solution when privacy is a concern and optimum lighting is a necessity.

Here are the pros and cons of tier on tier shutters to help you decide:

Pros of tier on tier shutters:

  • Maximum privacy and light blockage
  • Two separate opening sections to allow you to open and close the top panels for light and privacy control
  • Provide extra insulation to help keep out the hot and cold temperatures
  • Multiple configurations available
  • Available in a range of materials, colours and slat sizes

Cons of tier on tier shutters:

  • Not suitable for all windows

Tier on tier shutters are widely used in Victorian properties that look directly onto the street. However, they are a great option for all ground floor rooms and bay windows. Typically, narrow panels have been used on tier on tier shutters, but in recent years, more homeowners are opting for larger slats – an effect that is both flexible and stunning.
