Shutter & Shade: Room Darkening Shutters
Shutters are great for helping to darken a room, but what if you want it darker?
Is Your Bedroom Too Bright?
If you need to sleep during daylight hours, particularly in the summer, then you’ll know how annoying light can be. Even if you have dim-out blinds on your windows. The light from outside leaks around the side and over the top.
Ideal for Shift Workers and Kids Rooms…
Our Shutter & Shade range is also great for shift workers and a real boon in children’s bedrooms.
…Or Just When You Fancy a Lie-In
As Spring turns into summer, your bedrooms get lighter much earlier in the morning and stay that way late into the evening.
An east-facing bedroom on a sunny Sunday morning can be a challenge if you’re planning to lie in until lunchtime.
Room Darkening Shutters
Window shutters are much better at darkening a bedroom compared to blinds. However, if you need it darker, then our Shutter & Shade solution will work wonders.
Shutter & Shade
is an innovative shutter system with an integrated dim-out blind sitting right behind the shutter panels. When the shutter louvres are closed, and the blind is brought down, even the little shafts of light that peek through shutter louvres will disappear. Making for a very dark room indeed.
Not only does the blind block light from passing through the tiny gaps in the shutter louvres.
…With Insulation Thrown In
It also acts as an additional insulator to keep your room warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
…And It’s Colourful
The blind part of Shutter & Shade comes in twenty different colours. It is a lightweight cellular fabric. And don’t worry if you decide to go for a bold colour. All your neighbours will see in the back of the blind which is in a nice boring neutral.
Shutter and Shade is available on our Antigua, Fiji and Sumatra shutter ranges.
Great for Home Cinemas & Annoying Street Lights
We’ve fitted Shutter & Shade in home cinemas – to make the viewing experience much more authentic and cinema-like as well as for some client for whom the annoying glare of a streetlight is enough to keep them off their sleep.
Measured, Designed and Fitted by Us for You
All our Shutter & Shade systems are measured, designed and made to suit your windows.
Shutter & Shade
If light pollution keeps you awake at night or you need to sleep during the day, you can rest easy. The shutter frame overlaps the blind, creating an exceptionally tight seal. You can bring down the blind, close the louvres on the shutter panels and drift off to sleep.
Shutter & Shade will give you a stylish interior with the practicality of a room darkening product – the best of both worlds.
You can see Shutter & Shade in operation at our Edinburgh showroom at 67 Ratcliffe Terrace.
Our showrooms are closed at the moment because of the COVID crisis, but once we get back to some semblance of normal, just give us a call and schedule an appointment to visit us.
