Maximise the light & space in your home this spring!
DIY Wooden Shutters

As the seasons shift, as so does the way we live within our homes. The dark nights of winter are now behind us as is the need to snuggle up under the duvet and shelter away from the outside world. 

Now that spring is truly upon us and summer is on its way, DIY Wooden Shutters want to welcome the extra hours of light into our home living space and connect you with the outside world. Redecorating every time the seasons change isn’t always practical however there are some clever tricks that you can adopt to help you maximize the light and space around you for a real bright, summery vibe. 

Open up your windows

By doing this we don’t mean literally – although wide-open windows will naturally let the light flood in as well as create a lovely summer breeze especially on those hot sticky days. Take down any heavy winter curtains, which during the summer months will make the room feel claustrophobic, stuffy and block out any extra light. Replace them with a pair of café-style DIY wooden shutters in bright white as this will help to reflect the light. The added bonus of café-style wooden shutters is that the top and bottom layers can be opened or adjusted independently allowing you to control the light source, or Opt for a slimmer louvre and this will create the illusion of height, resulting in a more spacious finish.

At DIY Wooden Shutters, we have a range of styled shutters to suite any room within your home, whether this be the living room, kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. We guarantee that our online DIY Wooden Shutter prices are the cheapest within the UK or your money back!

What Are Plantation Shutters

Wednesday, 1 March 2017 10:56:43 Europe/London

 DIY Wooden Shutters

Plantation Shutters are Interior shutters that are typically divided into narrow units which are hinged so that two or more units cover each side of a window opening when closed.

Our DIY Plantation Shutters are operable louvered shutters have louvers or slats, controlled by a tilt bar or rod to adjust the louver position and keep them in a uniform position, to control light, visibility and airflow into your property.

DIY Plantation Shutters with operable louvers are described variously as traditional DIY Shutters, DIY California Shutters, or just simple Plantation Shutters. Plantation Shutters can be configured in a single tier unit that has one shutter top to bottom of a window opening as well as multiple tiers. Multiple tier units feature separate shutters on each tier which allows the top shutters to be opened independently from the bottom shutters. Café-type shutters refer to shutters that only cover the lower portion of a window.

Full height shutters can be made with a horizontal divider rail which separates the upper and lower portions of the shutter. With operable louvered shutters this gives greater control as the louvers above the divider rail can be operated independently from the louvers below the divider rail.

DIY Plantation Shutters are constructed from numerous woods, which can be painted or stained, and a variety of synthetic materials. Interior shutters that are made to close tolerances are preferable for the best possible fit. When louvers or tilt bar (rod) become damaged, replacement kits for these damaged parts may be ordered online and are easy to install.

We believe at DIY Wooden Shutters that we offer the best range of DIY Plantation Shutters at the most affordable online prices, in fact we guarantee you will not find our DIY Plantation Shutters cheaper anywhere else.
