Full Height Shutters

As the name says, these custom-made indoor shutters cover the entire height of your window opening. As a practical and elegant window treatment, full-height shutters help you keep your room cool when it’s hot outside and warm when it’s cold. They also help provide extra security, privacy and soundproofing. Going with this shutter style is a sure bet! Let’s talk about other benefits of going with a Full Height shutter design.

[more-or-less-start] Full Height shutters are the most popular type of shutter design. Not only because they can be tailored to meet your needs but also because they are aesthetically pleasing. So, you ask, how can it be made to suit my lifestyle? Well, you can request a Divider Rail be added. A divider rail is a stationary piece that runs horizontally across the panel. It allows independent slat movement for those on top of the divider rail from those below the rail. This means you can have your top slats opened to let light in and the bottoms closed for privacy reasons. This flexibility is sure to give you optimum light control to ensure your privacy is never compromised. The divider rail height location is something you choose yourself. You can either place it two thirds from the bottom up, half way or towards the bottom. As long as it’s within reason, we can make it happen.

For windows with breaks or locks halfway up, we suggest ordering the divider rail to be at a height that will cover the break or lock in the window. Measuring the divider rail height for this type of application is simple. For inside mounts, just measure from inside the opening from the bottom up to the center of the break/lock in the window. The center of the divider rail will land on that dimension. Although we do our best to keep it at that exact location, often times, it can be necessary for our manufacturing team to adjust the divider rail height. In the event it needs to be moved by over 3/4 “, we will contact you for approval. For an outside mount, simply measure from inside of the window opening up to the center point of what you want covered, then add the width of the bottom frame if you are selecting one. Please refer to our measuring guides, and as always, if in doubt then contact us. We have a team of shutter experts waiting to assist you.

Full height shutters, as mentioned, cover the entire height of the opening. For homes with low ceilings, going with a full height can be the best option. Full height shutters can help elongate the look of a wall and create the feeling of a high ceiling. Inversely, for customers with high ceilings who want to bring the focal point towards the floor, ordering full height with a divider rail is the best way to go. Know that whatever design look you are interested in achieving, we at The Shutter Store are here to help make it happen.

To all of our customers, we ask that our measuring guides be followed. Regardless of your background in DIY or whether you’ve ordered shutters in the past from a different supplier, know that our guides are designed specifically for our product. Measuring any other way can result in the shutters being manufactured to incorrect dimensions. Not following our measuring guides will make you responsible for the shutters not fitting. Although we are known for our fantastic aftercare, following our guides will ensure a smooth process from beginning to end.

If you are still unsure what shutter design to choose from, please feel free to give us a call. Our staff are expertly trained to help with any type of shutter question. Whether it be measuring help you need, fitting guidance or simply help in choosing a design that will go best with your home décor, we are here to help.

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.
