Your Guide To Specialty Shutters

1. Shutter Sytles

Shutters are a classic window treatment that has been around for years. It is no wonder they can be customized to suit the preferences of each individual. Shutters come in different styles and can be categorized as follows:

1. Exterior & Interior Shutters

There are 4 main exterior shutter types which you can read more about in the article, Here Are the Four Types of Exterior Window Shutters:

  • Bermuda
  • Board & Batton (BnB)
  • Louvred
  • Panelled

The 2 main types of interior shutters are: 

  • California Shutters
  • Plantation Shutters

These are the most popular shutters homeowners choose when treating their windows and doors. These shutters are almost the same except for their louvre size.

California shutters have louvres that are traditionally 2.5 inches while plantation shutters have louvres of 3.5 inches. Learn more about the differences by reading our blog, California vs Plantation Shutters Designer’s Guide. The chart below also shows some of the differences. Generally speaking, California shutters are recommended for smaller windows while plantation shutters look great on large windows and doors. 

2. Varieties of Interior Shutters

Once you select your louvre size, you can also choose between different varieties. Here are some:

  • Café-Style
  • Full-Height
  • Tier-on-Tier
  • Bypass Track Doors
  • Bifold Panels

Below are some pictures of these varieties and some advice on when these styles are useful.

Café Style Shutters

Useful for rooms where both privacy and sunlight are desired.

Full Height Shutters

Useful for complete privacy and room-darkening. 

2 Tiered Shutters

Tier-On-Tier Shutters

For control over which parts of the shutter you want to be left open or closed. 

Shutters For Sliding Doors

Bypass Track Doors

Useful for patio doors when you want to slide the panels back and forth for exiting and entering doors.

Bifold Doors

Useful for doorways or on large windows where a clear view or entrance is desired. They can even be used as a type of room divider. e

3. Materials

Shutters are always being made from new materials. In the past, shutters were first designed with marble in Ancient Greece. We’ve come a long way since then and now you’ll see shutters made from these three most popular materials:

  • Composite
  • Vinyl 
  • Wood
While wood is generally considered the most expensive material, it is durable and natural. With technological advancements, composite materials are also designed for longevity and may even outlast wood. Vinyl tends to be the most economical option and is easy to maintain. Beware though, vinyl shutters may not be as customizable. Contact an expert to learn more.

4. Colours

Shutters can be customized with a wide range of colour options! While the traditional colours are white and wood stains, you can get them painted in almost any colour!

2. Shutter Shapes

The beauty of specialty shutters is that the shape of your shutters can be adjusted to fit a specific window shape, and custom-built to fit your décor. Depending on the brand or make, shutters can be adapted for the following shapes: 

  • Arches
  • Eyebrow Arches 
  • A-Frames
  • Inverted A-Frames
  • Circles
  • Angles
  • Octagons
  • Hexagons
