All in the details

Hidden or front-facing central tilt rods?

Tilt rods are used to open and close slatted shutter panels.

Simple and stylish, central tilt rods are slender wooden bars attached to the front of the slats.

If you want something with a more contemporary look, opt for hidden tilt rods. These are thin, metal mechanisms attached to the back of the shutter panels. They neatly connect all the slats in a panel together so when you move one slat, the others move too.

Getting the right light

Slat sizes for shutters are down to personal preference. If you have large windows, french doors or a contemporary look to your home, wide louvres or slats (89mm or 114mm) often work best.

For traditional-style homes or smaller windows, narrow slats (64mm) could be a better option.

Remember, the wider the slats, the deeper your shutter frame needs to be, so that might influence your choice.

Choosing the right frame for your window

Shutter frames are used to affix your shutters to your window area and they’re the perfect way to show off your shutters to full advantage. They're also useful for disguising uneven walls and windows that aren’t level, often found in older homes.

Shutter frames come in two styles – inside mount, where the frame sits inside the window recess allowing you full use of your window sill, or outside mount, where the frame is mounted to the wall area, ideal if your windows aren’t recessed.

Either way, your chosen shutter panels will be neatly mounted inside the shutter frames for a lovely professional finish.

Hinges to complement your shutter style

Hinges are used to attach your shutter panels to the shutter frames mounted either inside or outside your window recess. The high-quality fittings we use are guaranteed to make opening and closing your shutters smooth and easy.

Hinges are available in a wide range of styles, finishes and colours so you can choose a discreet hinge that blends in with your shutter style or opt for a contrasting hinge that complements your interior design look. 

Everything you need to know about mid-rails

Mid-rails run horizontally between a shutter panel’s top and bottom rails.

Although entirely optional, they’re a good way of giving your shutters extra strength and support and are generally recommended if your shutter panels are more than 3000mm in height.

Plus, when your shutters have mid-rails, the top and bottom halves of the shutter panel can be opened and closed independently, giving you both privacy and light at the same time.
