      What Are Plantation Shutters?

      Created in the American South to combat humid weather, plantation shutters are large, wooden slats that sit within their frame – which are typically drilled to a window sill.

      Despite their permanent fixture, you can control how much light they let in. Thanks to their tilt rod, they can be fully closed, open, or anywhere in between.

      Solaire Blinds’ Tilt Option Offers Versatility at Your Fingertips

      With Plantation Shutters from Solaire Blinds, you have the option of opening and closing your slats with or without tilt rods. Your tilt rods either run down the centre of the shutter panel, or they can be off-set to to give a sleeker look.

      Which Plantation Shutters Do We Offer?

      Our Seattle shutters are made from MDF coated with polymer – making them strong, durable, and smooth whilst providing an elegant finish.


      The multi-purpose Boston is made from hardwood panels with an engineered core to prevent the possibility of warping. They work well in all rooms and windows throughout the house as they provide extra durability.


      The customisable Montana is made from premium hardwood with an engineered core. When stained, the wood keeps its marvellous texture, working especially well with shaped windows.


      The sophisticated Georgia is made from materials including polymer louvres, MDF panels and frames – ensuring it is lightweight yet tough. Thanks to its durability, it works well over patio and bi-fold doors.


      The water-resistant Hollywood is made from ABS and is as adaptable as it is resistant. Its superior strength prevents warping, denting and chipping – and has a beautiful matte finish, working well in the bathroom and in the kitchen.

      Solaire Blinds’ Shutter Styles



      The top and bottom panels operate independently, offering fantastic flexibility.

      Café style

      Bring a European look to your home with these stunning shutters. They cover the bottom half of your window, allowing light to seep through while ensuring privacy.

      Full height

      A popular choice. Full height covers the entire window and each panel opens from top to bottom. The louvres can be separated by a mid-rail or split for more control.


      Great for large glass expanses or doors, like french windows and patio doors. These shutters slide on a track for ease of access.


      Solid panels are present here, as opposed to louvres. These shutters offer full coverage for your window.


      Perfect for original architecture and awkwardly shaped windows, such as portholes, arches and angles.
