Shutter Styles

To ensure that we are able to offer a shutter suitable for all applications, we provide a huge range of
shutter styles/ installation types. Broadly, the shutter styles fall into seven categories: Full Height
Shutters, Tier on Tier Shutters, Cafe Style Shutters, Bay Window Shutters, Special Shaped Shutters,
Door & Wardrobe Shutters and Tracked Shutters. We are confident here at Brighton Plantation
Shutters that we can offer a shutter style/ type suitable for any installation.

Full Height

A full height installation is one where the shutter panel(s) literally span the full height of the shutter frame, without a ‘tier-on-tier’ split. 
Adding a mid-rail allows you to tilt separate sections of the shutter, controlling the light to get the levels to suit your needs. A mid-rail also means that you can keep the lower section closed, providing privacy, while the top section remains open, allowing natural light to filter in through the louvres.
As with all our plantation shutters, you can opt for a visible tilt rod, providing a classic look, or you can choose to have a hidden tilt rod, giving your shutter a simple, sleeker look.

Tier on Tier

For bathrooms, bedrooms, and living rooms, or anywhere you would like privacy at all hours – the ability to move panels and louvres independently could be just what you’re after. The tier-on-tier style is ideal for blocking out light as well as unwanted attention, top or bottom, day or night.

If you’re looking to emphasise a beautiful Victorian sash window, tier-on-tier shutters help complete the look and provide easy access to open or close your windows.


Unlike our full height plantation shutters, the beauty of café style is that they only cover the bottom half of the window. So even with added privacy for your home, you can still enjoy the light filtering into your home.

If you want to accentuate your existing window features, such as stained glass, then café style shutters are the choice for you. Only covering part of the opening they’re ideal for this purpose, as well as providing easy access for operating classic wooden sash windows.

Bay Window

Helping you show off the architectural features of your bay, our shutters are made-to-measure and crafted for the unique angles and sizes of the bay itself, maximising your space and available light. Bay windows are designed to make the most of sunlight in your home, and plantation shutters help you get the light levels just right, whatever the time of day. Rather than other window coverings, which need to be either fully open or closed, shutters can simply be tilted to avoid the direct glare of the sun.

Special Shapes

Having an irregular shaped window or opening requires something a bit more unique. Our plantation shutters suit all window shapes, no matter how curved or angled, small or large. Whether a triangle, arch or circle, the shape of the window or opening itself will dictate which material choices are available.

Adding a layer to your windows, shutters also help insulate your home, making them an excellent choice for older properties that tend to have single paned glass in the windows.

Door & Wardrobe

Unlike a shutter for windows, the primary function of wardrobe shutters is not light control, but ventilation. Being purely designed for interiors, the louvres provide excellent air flow, keeping your clothes or belongings free from damp. If you don’t need to tilt the louvres, you can opt to have them fixed in position to the panels themselves. As with all our shutters, the door and wardrobe shutters are fully customisable and have the option of the louvres running the full height of the door.

Panel Configurations

Single Panel

One single window shutter panel situated within the frame, hinged left or right.

A good example of this would be a small single window shutters installation or perhaps a single French door

Bi-fold Panels

This is the name we give to two shutter panels hinged together. When opened the two married plantation shutters fold at the hinged joint.

Multi-fold Panels

The maximum amount of panels we can hinge together without utilising a tracking system is four, depending on the shutter material chosen. Lighter hardwoods enable you to have more hinged panels unlike heavier MDF and ABS.

Louvres & Tilt Rods

Louvres – Louvres – We offer five standard louvre sizes; 47mm, 63mm, 76mm, 89mm & 114mm, which are available in any of our materials. Tilt rods control the movement of the louvres. We offer three types of tilt rod; Front mounted, Clearview and Hidden Tilt

Front Tilt Rod – This is a traditional set up, where the visible tilt rod is mounted on the front of the
louvres. This can either be centrally mounted on the louvres, or offset to one side. The louvres are
opened or closed by moving the rod up or down.

Clearview – This is a discreet rod mounted at the edge of the louvres, on the back of the panel. It is a way of achieving the contemporary appearance of the hidden tilt system, yet without any additional expense.

Hidden – This is a more contemporary tilt system, where rather than a visible rod, the hidden tilt
controls the louvres by a mechanism within the stiles of the panel itself, meaning that if you tilt one, the others move with it. For shutters with a mid-rail or tier-on-tier split, the different sections are still operated separately, as with the visible tilt rod option
