Solid panel window shutters are incredibly attractive and provide a wonderful, more classic shutter look. The beauty of solid panel window shutters is not only in their appearance but also in their simplicity. Because there are no operable louvers, the solid panels can only be opened or closed to let in light or block it out, as opposed to other louvered shutter styles, which offer a mix of light and privacy options.

Two general types of shutters

Interior shutters can be divided into two types depending on the type of their construction.

1. Shutters with louvers. This is a modern window decoration option, a great alternative to the usual blinds. As a rule, these are hinged or folding shutters, equipped with a special regulator that allows you to adjust the shutters and thus let more or less daylight into the room. They are usually made of wood or plastic. Metal is rarely used for this type of shutter (the exception – is if the shutters are designed for external use).

2. Solid shutters. Installed in door and window openings. Most often they can be seen in office and residential buildings. They are characterized by compactness, durability, a certain level of safety, and ease of use.

What are solid shutters?

The term “solid window shutters” refers to any shutter with panels that are not slatted. They are crafted from solid hardwood and therefore let in significantly less light than their more modern counterparts with louvres. They are popular among those who want to maintain a classic Victorian appearance for their windows, similar to old English, Regency-style Bay windows which rise from floor to ceiling.

Solid panel shutters, which do not have slats, provide secure, attractive, and beautiful top-to-bottom window covering.
