Shutters

Plantation shutters are a fast growing market in the UK and we offer a comprehensive range to suit all needs and budgets. From our base we work extensively throughout Ipswich, Colchester, and Chelmsford Essex. We offer a shutter range of different materials including MDF, ABS and top quality hardwoods. All shutters are custom made to suit the individual windows including bays, arches and other special shapes. A range of up to 7 louvre widths are available with a choice of standard, offset, split and concealed tilt controls. A range of frame styles is provided allowing for the shutters to be fitted within the reveal or flush mounted to the wall, available in full height, café style and tier on tier options. Tracked systems are available for the larger installations. A large range of paint and stain finishes are available with the option of custom finishes on some ranges. We can even provide integral black-out blinds behind the shutters on some models where complete light exclusion is needed. See below for further details on the materials, styles and options available.

Standard Plantation Shutters

Standard Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters for ordinary square or rectangle doors and windows. These occupy the full width and height of the recess they are being fitted to or within – depending on your choice of frame style, preferred application or limitation of the surrounding area. These can be made in a range of materials, louvre widths and colours. Various optional configurations such as bi-fold doors, standard, offset, split or concealed tilt operation and choice of hinge colours are available to choose from.

Shaped Plantation Shutters

Shaped Plantation Shutters

Shaped shutters are most often but not exclusively arches as pictured above. The style and functionality of these shutters is sometimes dictated by the shape of the window they are being applied to, but many options are still available to customise them to your preference. A template is made of the actual window or recess and sent direct to the factory for a precision fit.

Bay Window Shutters

Bay Window Shutters

Bay window shutters require extra planning and more frame work to support the panels than a standard shutter. Pictured above is a right angle bay shutter installation by Othello blinds, but angled bays are also catered for. We have done many 3 and 5 part angled bays over the years,

Café Style Shutters

Café Style Shutters

Café style shutters consist of a three sided frame and do not go to the top of the window, allowing plenty of light in whilst keeping prying eyes out. These are especially suitable for street level windows, where people walking by may be frequent. You can specify the height at which they finish – for example halfway, two thirds etc but most often they follow the lines of your existing window for a more aesthetically pleasing look from both inside and out.

Tier On Tier Shutters

Tier On Tier Shutters

With Tier on Tier shutters, the upper and lower panels open separately, giving you greater light control and privacy at all times of days.

Thank you to Othello Blinds for their excellent work. My new blinds look stunning and the whole process from start to finish was made really simple thanks to their team. We really could not be happier with how our new blinds work!

We have had our blinds now for a little less than a week and have already received numerous compliments on them. They look so beautiful and match the room perfectly. Thank you all for your hard work and extra care, I am very happy.
