We have fitted literally hundreds of shutters in the most unusual window bays and other places – Some of them have been in extremely awkward locations within a property, but somehow we meet the customers expectations.

Testimonial From A Happy Customer

I cannot recommend your company enough, I’ve sent photos and raved to all my friends and my builder who does lots of work in North west London is coming to have a look, I called him as soon as ray left to tell him how wonderful they were. I do hope you get lots more orders as a result!’

Cafe Style Shutters

Cafe Style Shutters are probably the most recognisable of all the shutters you’ll see.

When you look at them, they probably conjure romantic ideas of french cafes, the wafting fragrance of the French cigarette Gauloises – red wine being sloshed into glasses, by jovial french citizens. Cafe Style shutters surrey

Although Cafe Style Shutters, otherwise known as half height shutters have been around a long time, they are extremely practical for privacy as well as for letting plenty of light in.

They work well with bay windows, but look very good adorning any kind of window frame.

They work particularly well with tall windows and shutter frame normally covers half the height of the window – hence the name.

Half Height shutters have been around for over 500 years, in fact if you look at some images of the Tudor mansions of that time you will see that actually had this style shutter.

Glass was of course expensive and hard to get hold of, so a lot of homes that were built with window openings had glass at the top and solid planks which were pushed outwards to let the fresh air in or let the smells out!

Plantation Shutters For Your Home

‘Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast,
Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round…
So let us welcome peaceful ev’ning in.’

The Winter Evening – William Cowper (1731-1800)

English poet, William Cowper, is a man who clearly appreciates the finer qualities of a comfortable and stylish environment. He also seems to know a thing or two about shutters, and would doubtless appreciate the dedication and attention to detail that Affordable Shutters, bring to every aspect of our customers’ requirements in plantation shutters.Buy Plantation Shutters Surrey and Hamoshire

Invariably a style choice, well-fitted plantation shutters in the right location are meant to add an elegant and finished look, complementing your existing decorative elements. With such a quality installation at the heart of your home, the most critical decision is, arguably, who to entrust with the project. Affordable Shutters have the answer: ‘We don’t employ cold callers – our products are high quality – our customers recommend us to their family, friends and acquaintances.’ So, the advice is: if you know you can depend on the service, you’ll know you can depend on the product.

Plantation shutters will give your room that classic style and exclusive look, but they’ll also give you choices. Unlike curtains, which are open or closed, the louvers in plantation shutters allow subtle filter control of ambient light and airflows. Not only ventilation, they can offer a versatile privacy solution too – once again you can flexibly adjust the level of seclusion to exactly match your setting and purpose.

Plantation shutters in the Affordable Shutters range are made from high quality basswood. This is the traditional wood used for window blinds and shutters, preferred because it is lightweight yet strong and stable with a light grain, which is easily detailed. Strong mortise and tenon jointing contributes to the elegant, crafted look of the product. Customers can select from Full Height Shutters, Café Style to add French ‘chic’, or an adaptable Tier-on-Tier arrangement.

At every stage, the advice and expertise of Affordable Shutters is available to absolutely guarantee you are offered the best choice of products to help you achieve the look you want and enhance the beauty of your home, making it even more, as our poet would say, a place ‘that I and mine, and those we love, enjoy.’

Although there are many types of shutters, like vinyl, teak, teak, oak and composite (fake wood). By far the most enduring and most popular is basswood.shutters plymouth

Basswood is a natural product that brings a warmth and character and its long lasting and has a greater strength-to-weight ratio in its natural form than any other shutter material ever developed.

Of course one of the great strengths of basswood shutters is that it enables more custom shapes including longer louvers and extensions not possible with plastic or lesser materials.

Strong but light, basswood louvers can be extended further to create fewer, properly proportioned panels. These panels look better, weigh less and require less framing. Plastic and other, weak, heavy materials can only extend short lengths before drooping.

That is why for residents in Plymouth we recommend basswood shutters above all else.
