Made to measure shutters UK
At American Shutters, we pride ourselves on delivering made to measure shutters that exceed your expectations. When professionally measured and fitted, you’ll find that window shutters can be fitted on almost any type of window. Ideal for both period and modern home, shutters are an extremely versatile solution in the UK.
Shutters are particularly popular for period windows, where they enhance the window’s natural shape. When professionally made to measure, bay window shutters can be mounted to retain the curve of the bay, rather than masking it behind curtains. When you’re looking to preserve the integrity of period and statement windows, our custom made shaped shutters are a perfect choice.

Our made to measure shutters are available in a range of styles and designs. The one thing that remains consistent is that they are all custom made, just for you. Which bespoke style will suit your home?
You may want the maximum privacy afforded by our full height shutters. These shutters will cover your windows completely and are ideal as bedroom shutters when you really need it to be dark. If you want complete darkness, you can even select a room darkening design for a full blackout. This is when it is essential to have correctly measured and bespoke shutters. Our perfectly fitted handmade shutters won’t let even a chink of light get through.
Perhaps you want the flexibility of tier on tier shutters? These versatile shutters have upper and lower panels that open independently. This gives you maximum control over light and privacy, along with an abundance of natural light. Our café style shutters offer another stylish and versatile alternative. All our custom made shutters will be tailored to fit, partitioned at the natural dividing point of your window. This level of attention to detail makes our made to measure window shutters such a hit with interior designers and homeowners alike.
Custom made shutters
The benefits of made to measure shutters are numerous. Window shutters are an incredibly practical choice, giving you complete control over the levels of light and air in the room. The angled horizontal slats, often referred to as louvres, are designed to slope downwards from the outside. This means you can adjust the light and airflow, reduce heat loss, block out light and maximise privacy. By installing made to measure shutters that are a perfect fit for your windows, we can ensure that you’ll get the maximum benefits from your shutters. Whether you want lots of fresh air and light, gentle shading, or complete darkness and privacy, our custom made shutters will give you full control to suit your mood.
It’s worth considering the style of window shutter that will suit your room. You may opt for the more traditional shutter with a classic louvre style and tilt rod. Or maybe the modern design of the portobello shutter is better suited to your interior furnishings. These contemporary shutters have a hidden tilt mechanism for a minimalist look. Whether you want traditional or modern, our handmade shutters will blend beautifully into your home.
Made to measure wooden shutters
All our made to measure wooden shutters are crafted from the very best quality timber. Wood gives a beautiful finish, combining natural resilience with the aesthetics of an organic, natural product. Our custom made wooden shutters are made to your specifications. You can opt for a painted, sandblasted or natural finish, depending on the style of your home.
If you’re looking for a more weathered feel, why not consider our popular driftwood shutters for that rustic, vintage look. Alternatively, our made to measure wooden shutters can be given a special stain to work alongside your existing furniture. Stained shutters can be finished in a variety of shades to provide you with the perfect match.
However, when it comes to paint colours, we find that white window shutters are the number one choice every time. While we can paint your custom made shutters any colour you choose, many people find that the lighter shades give a crisp, fresh feel to the room. The beauty of white also lies in its ability to blend in to any room, whatever the style. And if you decide to update your furnishings, you can be sure that your white window shutters will work with every look.
Made to measure plantation shutters
There’s a reason why plantation shutters have become such a hit in the UK. Although they were originally installed on the large houses on plantations in the Southern USA, they have become a hit over here. Why? Well, it turns out that those louvred slats that provided such excellent temperature and light control in the days before air conditioning work just as well in the UK. The louvres provide superior climate control and protection from the sun. They keep in the heat, reduce fabric fade and provide excellent privacy. And when your plantation shutters are custom made to fit your windows to perfection, the benefits become even more significant.
Of course, shutters aren’t just for windows. You’ll find that shutters are also used throughout the home, on doors, on patio windows, as room dividers and as privacy screens. Our made to measure shutters come in all shapes and styles to suit any requirement. If you’re considering a shutter for your sliding doors and bi-fold doors, patio door shutters are the practical answer. Our handmade shutters can be installed on sliding tracks to work with your existing doors.
Shutters as room dividers are becoming a popular request amongst our customer base. They are a great way to section up your space and create an additional private area for home-working. It’s a cost-effective way of giving you an extra room without building an extension or constructing a garden office.
