We at DIY Shutters know that when it comes to choosing the perfect shutters for your home it can be overwhelming. Whether it’s choosing the style, the design, or the finish, there is lots to choose from – all within your budget of course. To make things easier, we’re going to take you through the ordering process step-by-step, helping you choose your perfect shutters.


Choose Your Style

Our shutters are made to measure and bespoke to your window. They can be used for not only improving the aesthetics of your window, but also offer you more control over the amount of natural light you want in. This helps shutters provide you with more security and privacy than curtains or blinds.
Full Height: These shutters will cover your whole window from top to bottom, providing you with the greatest amount of privacy.

Café Style: This style covers only the lower portion of your windows but still offers you great privacy and visibility outside your window. They will also allow the greatest amount of sunlight to enter your room.
Alternatively, you can also pair this style with blinds or curtains to cover the top portion of your window.
Tier on Tier: This style gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to open the top panels separately from the bottom. This gives you total control of how much light you want to enter the room and your privacy.


The Perfect Shutter Finish

We have several finishes for you to from so you can have the perfect shutters to suit your home, your budget, and your style.
Painted and Stained: Both these finishes are made from our quality hard wood, Paulownia, ensuring a smooth and flawless finish every time. In our painted range you can choose from 13 different colours, and have a choice of 11 with our stained finish.

Faux wood: Our new faux wood shutters are made in the UK and are constructed from polyvinyl (PVC) to ensure maximum durability. They are waterproof, strong and ideal for bathrooms and kitchens. There are 2 popular colour choices available.

  Now that you have your chosen style and finish, it's time to start measuring. Using our handy measuring guides you can create the perfect shutter design for your window. Whether they be single sash windows or 5 pane curved bays, there is a shutter for that.
Once your order is placed we give you follow up call to go through everything to ensure that you are happy with the design, the style and the finish before being sent off to the factory.
