5 reasons to choose interior window shutters

1. They’re the perfect fit

Unlike curtains or blinds, interior window shutters are made to measure. They’re tailor-made to fit your individual windows, sitting seamlessly inside their own frame, which is fitted to your windowsill. This means there will be no chilly drafts in winter or sunshine peeking through the edges on sunny mornings. Here at American Shutters, our experts will come to measure your space, ensuring a perfect fit every time.

2. They blend with your interiors

Most people opt for white window shutters, which will give your room a bright, fresh feel. White shutters blend in with your existing décor and won’t need to be refreshed if you decide to switch things up. However, you can also opt for your interior shutters to be painted in any colour you choose, or you can select stained shutters that come in various natural finishes.

3. They’re easy to maintain

You’ll find interior shutters are remarkably simple to keep looking fresh and new. Window shutters, interior or exterior, just need a quick wipe down with a cloth or duster. Unlike curtains, there are no folds to collect dust, no trips to the dry cleaners necessary, and they won’t fade in the sun. With just a little care, your window shutters will keep their good looks for decades, proving they are the ideal investment.

4. They’re fashionable

Whether you choose our traditional shutters with classic louvres and a tilt rod, or the minimalist style of our portabello shutters, they’re a design classic that will never age. Interior window shutters blend in effortlessly with every new furnishing trend. Always the more popular and fashionable choice over curtains or blinds, you’ll find your window shutters stand the test of time.

5. They’re cost-effective

You may think of interior window shutters as a luxury choice, but they are actually the most cost-effective choice of window covering. Along with their low-maintenance benefits, they also offer fantastic insulation properties, which will really help to bring down your heating bills. In addition, they protect your soft furnishings against sun damage, offering increased longevity in these expensive items. And don’t forget, the kerb appeal of quality interior shutters will add considerably to the market value of your property.

Exterior or interior shutters

Window shutters, also known as plantation shutters, have their origins in the Southern USA. Shutters were initially installed on the windows of large mansions on cotton and sugar plantations in the ‘Old South’. In those days, shutters were placed outside the windows, providing protection from the sun and the heat. They were designed to cope with the hot and humid climate, with their louvred slats allowing for natural temperature control in the days before air conditioning.

Plantation shutters are now a popular choice worldwide, with one big difference. They’re now placed inside the home. The louvres still provide excellent climate control and protection from the sun; however, these internal window shutters are designed to be installed inside. In the UK, interior window shutters are now one of the most popular contemporary solutions for window coverings.

The benefits of internal window shutters

Interior shutters are an incredibly practical choice. They have angled horizontal slats that can be opened to let light and air enter the room. These slats often referred to as louvres, are designed to slope downwards from the outside, allowing full control over light and airflow. When the slats are fully closed, internal window shutters do a great job of maximising privacy, reducing heat loss and blocking out the light.

The real benefit of internal shutters is the amount of control they give you over the levels of light and air in the room. The fully adjustable slats can be tilted from fully open to fully closed and anywhere in between. Whether you want lots of fresh air, complete privacy or soft shading, inside window shutters can be easily adjusted to suit your mood.

Interior shutters: a fashionable choice

Window shutters, interior and exterior, are renowned for keeping their style credentials. And it looks like they’re becoming more popular as time passes. Research from IMARC reveals that the market for shutters will only increase over the next few years, driven by increasing investment in home improvement, building aesthetics and décor.

Interior trends will come and go, wallpapers will take over from plain walls, and carpets will replace wooden floors, but interior window shutters will keep their appeal. Why? Because they’re timeless. They blend effortlessly with every new trend in your home, working in harmony with your revamped look. So, if you’re looking for a sound investment, internal window shutters are an excellent choice.

Interior shutters or blinds?

What’s the difference? Window shutters are made-to-measure and sit inside their own frame, which is fitted to your interior windowsill or door frame. While blinds can also be fitted to the window recess, they don’t have their own frame and are lifted up and down by a string.

You’ll find interior window shutters fit the window frame seamlessly. At the same time, you still have the option to open and close the slatted panels as you wish. With blinds, the individual slats are held together with string rather than attached firmly to a frame. Window shutters, interior or exterior, are also long-lasting and durable and will remain looking good as new long after your blinds need replacing.

Indoor shutters for all types of window

Interior window shutters are an extremely versatile choice and can be installed on almost every type of window. If you have a period home with bay windows, you’ll find that shutters are a popular solution for good reason. Bay window shutters can be mounted to suit the shape of the window. This means your shutters retain the outline of the bay, enhancing the window rather than hiding it behind curtains. Shaped shutters can be installed to fit any shape or size of window and are the perfect way to preserve the integrity of period and statement windows.

bedroom window shutters

Door shutters interior

Shutters don’t just have to be fitted on windows. You can also have internal shutters fitted on your doors. If you’re looking for a covering for your sliding doors and bi-fold doors, patio door shutters are a sleek and practical solution. Indoor shutters also work well to screen off larger glazed areas, such as office partitions and conservatories. Sliding shutters can be installed on tracks to give you maximum flexibility.

You should also consider using shutters as room dividers. Sliding or fixed room dividers will section up your space, giving you an extra private area without the cost of building an expensive extension. It’s a stylish and cost-effective option.

Internal shutter styles

Interior shutters are hugely popular in the UK. But which style should you choose? Our indoor window shutters come in a wide variety of styles to suit every home. Whether you want the flexibility of tier on tier shutters or prefer the boutique look of café style shutters, you’ll find that shutters are infinitely flexible. Full height shutters will cover your windows completely. These are particularly suitable as bedroom shutters, where you can select a special room darkening design for a complete blackout when required.

Have a think about the style of indoor shutter you prefer. Do you like a more traditional shutter with classic louvres and a tilt rod to open and close the slats? Or may you prefer the more minimalist style of the portabello shutter? The modern design features a hidden tilt mechanism for a clean, contemporary look.

Wooden interior shutters

Our wooden shutters are made from the finest quality solid timber. Wood is the perfect choice for traditional shutters, giving you a beautiful finish with all the resilience of natural material. If you’re looking for a less polished feel, why not opt for driftwood shutters with their soft, weathered finish.

Wooden indoor window shutters can be painted, sandblasted or given a natural finish to show the organic beauty of the wood. Stained shutters are proving to be a fashionable option and come in a variety of natural tones to match your interior decor. You could also consider alternative finishes, including fabric, faux leather or suede coverings, all of which can be carefully selected to fit in with your current furnishings.

Interior window shutter colours

While white window shutters are a universally popular option, your internal shutters can be painted any colour to match the interior of your home. Inside window shutters in white and lighter colours will give a brighter feel to your room and a crisp, fresh finish. They also blend seamlessly in your surroundings, meaning you won’t have to update the colour if you decide to redecorate.

Interior shutters for insulation

One benefit often overlooked is the remarkable insulation properties of interior window shutters. Indoor shutters are well known for their ability to retain heat in a room. The closed shutters provide an excellent barrier against draughty windows and doors. For this reason, shutters are an ideal option for homes with single glazing. Research by Glasgow Caledonian University confirms this, concluding that timber shutters reduce heat loss by 51%.

Coming from the hot, humid origins of the Deep South, you’ll find window shutters, interior and exterior, have remarkable properties for keeping heat out of a room as well. In hotter weather, your closed shutters will reflect the heat of the sun, keeping your room temperature cool and comfortable. Room darkening shutters are a popular choice for bedrooms and warmer climates.

Internal window shutter maintenance

Window shutters, interior and exterior, couldn’t be easier to keep clean. In comparison to curtains, they’re the clear winner. There are no pleats or folds to gather dust, no need to wrestle them down from the curtain rod, and no trips to the dry cleaners.

All your interior shutters need is a quick dusting with a cloth or feather duster. You can even use a hoover to dust off your shutters – just remember to use the soft brush nozzle to avoid scratching. Got some stains or sticky fingerprints? A simple wipe with a damp cloth will have them looking as good as new. With just a little care, your internal window shutters will look as good as new for years to come.

Interior window shutters cost

While window shutters for your interior may appear to be a luxury choice, you’ll find they are incredibly cost-effective. Not only do they offer excellent insulation properties to bring down your heating bills, but they’ll also protect your furniture and soft furnishing against sun damage. Internal window shutters will last for years with little maintenance required, and they’ll stay looking as good as the day they were first installed. In the long term, interior shutters are a permanent upgrade to your property. They’ll boost kerb appeal and help to raise the value of your home.

We were incredibly impressed with American shutters from start to finish. We phoned and spoke to Linda who booked us in for a quote.Linda was lovely and very honest and answered all my questions happily. I spoke to Linda a couple of times throughout the process and nothing was ever too much trouble. Tom came over to quote and he explained everything and all our options in a lovely manner which wasn’t pushy and not a typical sales pitch. We had got 7 quotes in total and American shutters were in the middle, price wise, but their customer service was by far the best of them all. Once the shutters had arrived they got us booked in for installation straight away. Roberto installed the shutters and we are so so happy with them. Roberto was so clean and tidy and the finish is extremely professional. He even offered to help me move all my lounge furniture back after I had to move it all for a carpet fitter.We would definitely recommend this company, we can’t fault their service at all! We will be using them again in the future.

We have recently had shutters installed in our Airbnb property. We have used Tom and his team before for shutters in our family house and are so glad we used him again! The mechanisms are really slick, precise and are perfectly measured out and the shutters are beautifully made. They make the property look so smart. Tom gave us all the advice we needed and the installation team were brilliant. They cleared up, didn’t leave anything to clear up, ready for our guests. 10/10.

We have just had our final shutters fitted in our lounge, which now completes our whole house. We first had contact with Tom of American Shutters 14 years ago when we moved in and have gradually had each room fitted with shutters. I think the fact that we have returned to the same company during this time speaks for itself. Tom, himself, is very efficient, reliable, offers excellent advise and really takes an interest in what ideas you have. He is in no way pushy, he offers a very personal service and it has been such a pleasure dealing with him and his staff. We are absolutely delighted with our shutters, they are of excellent quality and beautifully fitted by Roberto, his lovely installer. I could say more but all I can say is if you are looking to have shutters fitted I cannot recommend American Shutters enough. You can be assured that you will be delighted with the result.

What a lovely team! Tom was so helpful and professional when he came to measure up earlier in the year - even being kind enough to give me some paper IKEA blinds whilst I was waiting for my shutters, and put them up for me.When he came to fit the blinds Roberto was equally as professional, friendly, and left the area spotless. The shutters are beautiful and clearly installed with care. I will definitely be coming back to American Shutters in the new year to order some for my bedroom. A great customer experience all round.

I have been kept updated and informed from my initial enquiry through to installation and after care. Tom was patient with us, including several trips to view examples, as we decided on the right style and helped with all my questions. The fitters we had were polite, friendly and tidy. We did have an issue with our shutters after fitting and you can tell the quality of a company by the way they handle this. I was really pleased for the stress free experience as they dealt with the issue, and again, the team kept me up to date. The shutters have added such a massive impact on our room, and we are really pleased with them. Such an easy company to deal with I would highly recommend them. It was a breath of fresh air!

We recently received our bespoke shutters. Which looks amazing and completes our room. Making our family and reception room look cosy.Also, not as expensive as I thought, which is always a bonus!!They adhered to COVID-19 advice, wearing face masks, stating they have had no symptoms recently (alternatively, asking if we are symptom free) - good call.We were kept up-to-date regarding our purchase. Because of COVID-19, our products took a bit longer, about 2 weeks.Once our Shutters had arrived, they contacted us straight away to organise an installation date within days.Our installation guy was professional and very skilled. I didn’t realise it would take a day to install, but being bespoke they needed to match to your windows.After just having our extension done, everywhere had mastic. The installation guy also put mastic around the shutters.Would definitely recommend in price, customer service and installation.

American Shutters is the continuation of a company I first started using in 1992. While the owners have changed the ethos, professionalism and attention to detail has not. I have always been impressed with the quality of shutters, the speed of service and the efficient responses to enquiries. There are many shutter companies in business and one can find cheaper solutions. I have seen the issues friends and family have faced when using other companies. I chose to go for quality and it has served us well for almost 30 years.

A big & hearty thank you to the entire team at American Shutters. The professionalism and attention to detail shown was critical to my wife & I realising our “shutter dream”. Tom’s design visit initially posed more questions than answers as he guided us through a veritable myriad of styles & finish options. We were impressed & confident our vision was in safe hands. Eventually, and after a robust exchange of views we settled on a traditional painted finish both upstairs & downstairs with the summer house in poplar from the Driftwood range. Delighted with the end result is an understatement. The installation went without a hitch & the sensitivity to COVID protocols was commendable. A true credit to British industry, keep up the good work.

From Tom taking my first call, to Linda arranging Tom’s diary to come to our home to measure, follow up calls, etc. So excited to get them installed after a couple of years discussing it!American Shutters have not disappointed – give them a call!

I always liked shutters but was a bit apprehensive about which company to use so after a bit of internet searching came across American Shutters. I’m so glad I did. The first shutters I had installed were cafe type and looked really great and they have now been in place 13 years . The colour has not faded and they are still in perfect condition and look as new. I’ve since had the first floor and second floors fitted with American shutters and am very happy with them and highly recommend this company. Their fitter comes to measure and also installs them and has done a great job. The latest shutters were fitted to replace blinds that had faded. Good news - these shutters don’t fade and are proving more economical in the long run. Plus they suit any decor. They were also fitted during the pandemic and their fitter adheres to COVID safeguards while working.

We had American Shutters fit shutters in our living room this week, 2 smaller windows and a large window. I was so impressed with the service they provided from start to finish. The shutters look amazing, I was worried how it would look on a smaller window but I think I like them the best! Fantastic company, I will definitely use them again and recommend to everyone.

We have just had American Shutters installed in an office and a bedroom at our home.The installation by Roberto was very professional. Apart from the shutters he left no trace of having been to my home!The shutters have transformed both rooms. They are of excellent quality. They provide perfect amount of blackout for the bedroom and allow adjustable shade in a bright south facing office during the day and total privacy at night.The shutters give both rooms a clean sophisticated finish.I am extremely happy with the service I have received from American Shutters and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Thank you to American Shutters for transforming my office into a light but private space - perfect for looking out onto a main road. Will make working from home all the more enjoyable! Measuring and fitting experiences from Tom and Gary were as straightforward as I could have hoped for. Definitely a 5 star service!

We have moved houses on several occasions, once abroad and each time have used American Shutters. The team are fast, friendly, efficient and understand color schemes. Houses have varied from period to contemporary and the shutters have varied from small slats to large to solid. Recently I had a problem with one of my shutters closing and Tom was there same day to correct it and this was 5 years after having them installed. I can honestly say the only company I would ever use for shutters is AMERICAN SHUTTERS.

Window shutters.I asked Tom at American Shutters to measure and install a set of shutters in our bedroom at home and due to the very unusual shape of the cathedral style window, it was a difficult and complicated undertaking. The result was simply fantastic. The fit and operation is perfect and the aesthetic look and quality of the shutters is quite simply exceptional. I will most definitely use Tom and American Shutters again in the future and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Tom and the American Shutter Company to anyone.

We had 7 rooms fitted with these shutters 10 years ago and quite honestly they still look brand new. We have been delighted with them and have had many compliments over the years for their quality and look. Far superior than many others on the market. Would not hesitate to highly recommend American Shutters for their products and the team behind them.

Many thanks to the American Shutter Team. Great service from start to finish. I now have very smart and well made shutters in a room that is an awkward shape and size, making curtains a difficult prospect. I wish I had come across American Shutters earlier as it certainly made a difficult job effortless and not nearly as expensive as I imagined. Highly recommended.

American Shutters has done a great job designing a beautifully done bespoke set of Window shutters for a set of French Windows.His fitter was very thoughtful and thorough in measuring up and when it came to the final fitting in situ he was meticulous, accurate, extremely careful and even tidied up thoroughly. The end result is superb. I am an extremely happy customer.

Utterly outstanding! We had most of our windows fitted with the window shutters last week. Now we've gone back for the remainder windows to be fitted because they are just so lovely. They have completely changed the feel of the house, beautifully framing the windows and fitted just perfectly. Roberto came to fit them and he was wonderful. Friendly, competent and thorough. We could leave him to get on with things and trust he was treating each window like it was his first. He was so careful! It has honestly been the best investment we could have made. I just wish we had done it sooner to be honest. Absolutely brilliant bespoke service all round!!
