The best option for your window really depends on the type of window you have, the budget you want to spend and what you want your window covering to do for you.

Below are a few things you may wish to consider when choosing, but do not forget we are always here to help, just a short time spent on one of our free consultations, and you will see all your options and have all your questions answered.

 

 

Price

Generally shutters are more expensive than blinds, this is due the materials involved in making them and the time taken to install them properly. They are more of a permanent solution so over time the price is offset.

Blinds, however do have there own advantages, they can cover large windows at a much lower cost, and can be replaced quickly and cheaply if you need to change your room décor.

Window type

If You have a large door or window to cover , blinds can offer a cost effective and practical solution, they offer an endless range of colours and patterns are easy to change if you fancy a change. There is no doubt that a shutter can also add that WOW factor to these large windows, but the cost will be greater.

Where shutters really come into their own is on arched, porthole and triangular windows, one of our custom made shutters can make this hard to cover windows into a real joy to have in your room.

Long lasting

As we are manufacturers and installers of window blinds and shutters, we do our best to supply high quality long lasting shutters and blinds.

Shutters are produced from hard wearing robust materials and with care can last a lifetime, the added advantage is that plantation shutters are unlikely to go out of fashion, they have been around hundreds of years and are considered to be part of the property.

Blinds should not be written of just yet though, they offer a practical and beautiful solution at a much lower price than a shutter. They can be replaced easily, in the case of a vertical blind once you have bought your blind, you can buy replacement louvres, and have a different look to your windows for every season.

Preference

Ultimately it will all come down to your own personal taste, whether you opt for the sleek clean look of a pure white shutter or the homely charm of a stained wood or custom painted plantation shutter or one of the thousands of blind and pattern options.

All you need to know is we offer both blinds and shutters, so we can give you independent advice on how to achieve your dream window.

We can`t wait to hear from you.
