Types of shutters
There are two main types of shutters: louvred (slatted) and solid (filled in). In addition, a combination of both is possible; for instance, a solid with a louvred top. Handily, both types can be used either externally or internally and can be used as a dressing for doors, windows, or conservatories.
The type of shutter you prefer depends on your exact needs as well as the look you are hoping to achieve. Solid shutters are better for keeping warm, while louvred shutters provide greater control over noise, light, and ventilation since the salts can be closed and opened, as and when required.
On the other hand, there are lots of different styles of shutters that go with different shaped doors, windows, and conservatories. Some of the most popular types of shutters include café styles (which dresses only the lower part), full height, and tier-on-tier (two shutters fitted one above the other, with both functioning independently). Special shapes are also available to be used with nonrectangular windows, including circular, triangular, hexagonal, arched and octagonal formations.
