Popular Shutter Styles For Your Window

Popular Shutter Styles For Your Windows - Blind Technique Ltd

If you would like to dress your windows in a chic and stylish way, shutter blinds could be what you are looking for? Because of their unique general design, they will complement all home styles: from traditional Victorian or Edwardian, to more modern and contemporary apartments or loft conversions. 

However, it might be a little trickier to find shutter blinds that are just perfect for the different styles of windows in our homes. Here at Blind Technique, we have come up with some suggestions to help you navigate through some of the most popular shutter styles for your windows.  


Full-Height Shutters

This style of shutters is by far the most popular and ideal for patio doors, tall windows and indeed most windows. It basically means that the shutters are the full height of the window or opening that you are dressing. Because of their elegant yet understated design they can be the perfect solution for most spaces and windows styles. You can choose to have them fitted so that they can be completely opened and closed to allow you to block or let light flood through as you wish. 

They are also perfect for outbuildings and annexes, giving them an instant colonial feel which is certainly going to turn heads during your summer barbecues! Find out why our premium S-Craft Shutters are recommended by Blind Technique.

Tier on Tier Shutters

If you would like to flood your room with natural light whilst still maintaining your privacy, this style of shutters may be what you need! Their unique tier-on-tier design will allow you to open the top and/or bottom sections independently from each other.  This will give you the flexibility to keep the lower section of the blinds closed for privacy whilst keeping the top section open to allow the natural light to flood through. 

This popular design seems to be ideal for bathrooms and bedrooms, particularly if located on the ground floor.

Café-Style Shutters

If your home has windows looking out directly onto a busy urban area, this style of shutters may be just what you have been looking for. They will give you the privacy you need whilst still allowing natural light into the room. 

The Café Style blinds are typically around half the height of full-height shutter blinds and usually cover the lower part of the window. They can be perfect for smaller rooms making them feel cosy yet remarkably spacious because of the light they allow through. 

They are also extremely versatile and they can be paired perfectly with other window dressings, such as curtains and roman blinds.

Tracked Shutters

If you would like shutters for large doors, windows or sliding doors in a conservatory, for example, this style of shutters might be the perfect solution for you! As their name suggests they slide on a track, therefore removing the need to have frames or hinges. 

These shutters will allow you to make the most of the wonderful view that lies behind them, leaving the entire window area clear by fully folding back.
