Hillarys Blinds Shows How Shutters are Now Popular in Homes Across the Land


“Shutters are a fabulous window dressing, becoming increasingly popular in all types of properties and can actually add to the value of your home,” says Sarah Quilliam, head of product design at Hillarys. “But as they are more expensive than other window treatments, it’s really worth doing your homework to make sure you get it right. So to make your choice a little easier, here are some handy pointers to consider to help you get the perfect result.”

Room – the room you’re thinking of fitting shutters into plays an important part
in the type of shutter you go for. What do you use it for? Is it dark and needs
plenty of light or perhaps there’s an issue with privacy or being overlooked.

Budget – decide how much you want to spend, as the wood ranges available
do vary in price.

Use – you can fit shutters against sash or bay windows, French doors and
even use them as room dividers, as well as at the conventional window.

Shutter style – the amount of light and privacy you’d like depends on the room
and where it is situated.

Wood range – when choosing a white painted finish or natural wood stain,
consider the style of room, colour scheme, furnishings and budget. You can
have a mid rail fitted to a full-height shutter as an optional extra for more light
control, but on certain heights you’ll need to have one.

Frame - these can be made to fit on the outside or inside of the recess of your
window to complete the look.

Hinges – fittings are available in a choice of colours and finishes to match or
contrast with your shutter, depending upon the look and feel you wish to

Installation – a perfect fit is essential so use an expert to measure and fit.
