Bespoke plantation shutters not only work well for standard rectangle and square windows, but also for doorways, uniquely shaped windows such as arches, bays and gable end windows. Even larger expanses such as conservatories, patio doors and built-in wardrobes are also ideal for shutters.
All of the styles available are created using some of the finest quality shutter materials, from high-quality MDF shutters through to premium quality hardwood, all attained using sustainable means. The shutters we supply provide an environmentally friendly and highly stylish window dressing to meet your needs and requirements.
Each of our shutter styles has its own features, and we understand that having a large number of options to choose from can often lead to confusion. That’s why we recommend that you browse through our style collection and then discuss your options with our experienced team before you purchase.

Full-height shutters are the most popular choice among homeowners for their sleek style and practical application. They are excellent for blocking out unwanted light because of their simple panel configuration and privacy provision. “Full-height” means that the shutter panels run the entire height of the window or door.
For taller windows, to match an existing feature or just to change the aesthetics, a mid-rail may be added to full-height shutters, meaning that different sections of louvres can be operated independently, giving greater light control.
Café-style window shutters are half the height of full-height shutters and are excellent for providing privacy to street level and street-facing windows.
If you’re sitting in the bottom half of the window, café style allows light in the top half of the window to provide a unique level of light and privacy in the room. This style is also ideal for first-floor bedrooms that aren’t overlooked from above, meaning privacy is not as much of a concern.
Tier on Tier
Tier-on-tier shutters offer the same practicalities as café-style, but with a second tier of shutters situated on the top half of the frame, hinged separately. Both the top and bottom shutter panels can fold away or be kept in situ, giving even more control over both the light control and privacy.
Perhaps the most flexible style, tier-on-tier wooden is arguably at its most effective when the hinged panels of the shutters are narrow. Having narrow panels allows them to be concertinaed and bi-folded back against the wall, meaning they will take up less space than tier-on-tier shutters with larger panels.
Bay Window Shutters
Specially crafted to fit the space, shutters are a perfect solution for traditional British bay windows. Whether a square or splay bay, shutters spare you the awkwardness of curtain rails, and the light control means you can maximise the sun filtering through the aperture.
Plantation shutters blend into the bay window design, allowing you to keep the perfect lines of the bay, keeping the area clean and crisp while maintaining the special aesthetics as the architect had intended.
When architects design specific features in a building, they don’t necessarily think about the practicalities. That means you may find yourself with limited choices when it comes to differently shaped openings such as portholes and gable ends.
At Carlton Blinds, we can provide a wide range of bespoke shutter solutions to fit just about any window or door, no matter the size, shape or complexity. Whether your window is circular, arched or angled, or is large or small, we can design special-shape window shutters to fit perfectly.
