Plantation Shutter not what they used to be

When is a shutter not a shutter?

Gone are the days when a Plantation Shutter is made of timber, painted white with a 90mm aerofoil blade that fits over a bedroom window in place of a curtain.

2013 is witnessing a revolution.

Shutters come in many styles, colours and a variety of materials.  They are being used inside, outside, on windows, as screening for privacy, room dividers and in fact designers and architects are seeking bespoke shutter solutions.

Natural timber is enjoying a resurgence.

Aluminium is being used outside as a screening and shade provider.

OpenShutters continue to take these innovative designs and create solutions that work.
