Shutters are Built Bespoke

At DIY, your shutters are made-to-measure. So, whether your windows are sashes, bays, dormers, or otherwise, your shutters will fit like a glove. Indeed, because many modern homes tend to have box bay windows, we get asked about this a lot. Luckily, new build bay window shutters are something that we have been dealing with for years, so you’re in safe hands with us. And you needn’t be restricted to one design either…

Choose Your Style

One thing that really sets shutters apart from other window dressings is their diversity. Unlike curtains or blinds, you have a range of different styles to choose from when thinking about new build window shutters. We have Full Height, Tier-on-Tier, and Café Style shutters – each with their own unique benefits. So, whatever the look you’re hoping to achieve in your new home, there is a shutter for you.

Modern or Rustic, There’s a Shutter for That

Because of the range of styles and designs that you can opt for with shutters, they will blend in with any kind of window or décor in a new home. Of course, white shutters in new build, modern homes look great. In fact, white shutters look great in any kind of home. Most fixtures in new homes tend to be white, meaning that your shutters will blend in seamlessly with the room. However, that isn’t to say that you’re restricted to white. Our colours range from the whitest of whites, to the darkest greys. We even offer wood-stained shutters, so are sure to find the right hue for your new home.

Light Management

Often, modern homes will be built to allow as much light as possible in during the day, and this is especially true with large bays. This is where new build bay window shutters come in especially handy. With their movable slats, you can allow as much or as little light as possible into your home, meaning your days can be filled with sunshine and your evenings can be as cosy as you like.
