Wooden window shutters

There’s no doubt that wood shutters are a beautiful addition to any home. When most of us think of plantation shutters, we’re imagining them in the traditional wooden finish. There are few window treatments as sophisticated and stylish as wood window shutters. There’s just something about the pure, natural material of wood that beats other options every time.

When you’re researching wooden shutters UK, there’s one good place to start. The British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) is the UK trade association for shutters, blinds and awnings. They give impartial advice about window treatments, and their website is a great source of information about wood shutters UK. The website outlines all the benefits of internal wooden shutters, from improved insulation and reduced glare to considerable energy savings.

Interior wood shutters

Traditionally, shutters used to be placed on the outside of large plantation homes in true ‘Gone with the Wind’ style. However, now you’ll find that indoor wooden shutters are the fashionable choice. Whether you choose traditional shutters, the more modern portobello style, or even solid shutters, they are almost always placed inside the home.

Internal wooden shutters are great at keeping rooms warm in winter and cool in summer, making them the ideal choice for our temperate climate. In terms of cost-efficiency, interior wooden shutters are definitely the most practical solution. When you’re considering wooden window shutters interior, you’ll find they prove to be both a beautiful and functional solution.

Faux wood shutters

There are occasions when you might want to consider an alternative to indoor wooden window shutters. Our water-resistant shutters are ideal for rooms where there is excess moisture in the air. Wooden shutters are not the best choice for wet rooms and bathrooms, or outdoor rooms such as garages, sheds and outbuildings. For these rooms, you want to choose durable shutters that won’t warp or distort in humid conditions. Faux wood shutters or plastic shutters that look like wood are made from high-quality UPVC. They look just as beautiful as wood window shutters and are the perfect choice for humid and outdoor areas.

Wooden shutters cost

When you’re researching wooden shutters for sale, the obvious question is going to be price. You’ll need to think about the size of your windows, both height and width, to get an idea of the overall cost. While you may think that the wooden shutters price will work out expensive, the actual cost of wood shutters may be a pleasant surprise.

While wooden shutters for windows may seem like a luxury option, they are an investment worth exploring. They will not only reduce your heating bills with their fantastic insulating properties, but they will also protect your home and furnishing from sun damage. Internal wooden shutters are very hard wearing and require minimal maintenance. You’ll find wood shutters will earn their keep many times over.

I have used American Shutters several times now at different properties and have always been very impressed with the friendly but totally professional service provided. Excellent advice at first visit and most importantly the finished result has always been perfect. The last project was a tricky one with an awkwardly shaped window but the shutters look fabulous and as if they were built into the original opening.

There's a very good reason why there are so many five star reviews on Google for American Shutters. They are a very friendly and professional company. From the moment we placed our order with Tom to the moment they were installed by Roberto, the whole team are a pleasure to deal with and the shutters are of a very high quality. 5* service -I would highly recommended American Shutters without reservation.

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.

We used American shutters for the whole of our last house and so didn't hesitate to contact them when we moved recently. They have always been highly professional and I love the look of our shutters - with the wider blade that i prefer. They were very helpful about a feature round window and we now have a unique round shutter. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Sensible pricing too.

We have been contemplating swapping our slatted blinds for some window shutters for some time now, and have finally taken the plunge and are going for it!Although I have known of Tom for years through friends of friends, I cannot praise ALL of the team at American Shutters highly enough for their help in the whole process. 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.

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.

Many thanks to the American Shutter Team. Great service from start to finish.

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.

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!!
