Standard rectangular shutters are the most popular choice and fit most windows. They are available as single panels or bi-folding panels, depending on your window size. Single panels are the most popular option and maximize the light and view through a window. Bi-fold panels are more traditional and can swing open when there is furniture that limits the room in front of a window.
Café Style Shutters, also refered to as "Half-Height Shutters" are used in a setting where you want unobstructed view on the top of your window with covering for light control and privacy on the bottom. Often combined with drapery or another shade such as cellulars to create a unique and stylish custom design. Love the look but need more privacy? You may want to consider Double Hung Shutters.
Track Shutters are great for sliding glass doors, room divider, closets and large windows. The individual panels can be configured to slide to the left, right or to open from the center and will slide behind each other when in the open position. Choose two to four panels depending on the size of your opening. Bi-Pass Sllider Shutter is very popular because it does not require room in front of the window/door for the panels to swing open.
French Door Shutters are typically mounted “outside” of the glass opening on the popular French doors found in many living areas and patio entrances. Please consult with one of our blinds specialist for more information about ordering French Door Shutters.Call 1.800.548.5711, e-mail, or click to chat.
Double Hung Shutters combine a timesless and elegant style with maximum light and privacy control. Also called “tier on tier shutters” they are extremely versitile: Installed to divide your window into sections horizontally giving you the option to not only operate your Louvers independantly for presise light control but to also open the panels of the upper half while the lower remains closed, vice versa and to clear the entire window for viewing.
T-Posts are designed for wide windows that require additional support as a decorative post is placed to split the shutters into smaller sections creating strength and allowing for smooth operation. Adding a T-Post is only recommended for windows over 96". T-Posts are also frequently used when the existing window frame has a Mullion (vertical dividers which provide added structural support). In this case, when ordering, it is important to add notes that specify the position of the T-Post to ensure that the mullion will be covered.
A tilt rod is the vertical bar attached to the louvers that allows you to easily open and close your shutters. Tilt rods, also sometimes called "Tilt Wands" may be attached to the front panel on the center or offset to the side of the panel to allow for a completely clear view. The tilt rod in the front captures the traditional shutter look while the "clear view" option provides a clean & modern look. Note: A "split tilter" is required for panels over 60" in height. See "Steve’s Recommended Options" section below for more information.Standard - In the middle of the panel on front side (default).Offset - On the front side of the panel and at 1" from the louver ends on the hinged side. Invisible Tilt - Louver tilting system embedded within panel stile Not available for 1 7/8 ” louver. Panels over 48" will have a split InvisibleTilt tilt rod.
The Shutter stiles are the upright, vertical sections of solid wood. The shutter louvers rotate between the shutter stiles. The Shutter Store allows you to choose different sizes of stile to suit you design requirements.
