Our Eco-Friendly Pledge

Not only are plantation shutter blinds the most stylish and practical window dressing, but they’re kind to the planet too.

Eco shutters

Wooden plantation shutter blinds are stylish and practical - we know this. But did you also know they’re the most sustainable window dressing on the market?

What are eco shutters and why are they eco-friendly?

There are a couple factors that contribute to our shutters’ eco-friendly status. Firstly, the wood used to manufacture them is sourced from sustainable forests. Secondly, shutters help to better insulate your home, meaning you’ll use less energy. In fact, studies have shown that shutters can reduce heat loss through the windows by around 60%!

How we’re doing our bit

Sustainability starts at the source. All of our shutters are transported via sea rather than air, which massively reduces their carbon footprint. And if you choose UK-made Faux Wood shutters, they’ll have even less distance to travel. 

What’s more, all our packaging is 75% recyclable cardboard, so once you’ve installed your dream eco shutters you can dispose of the packaging responsibly. 

Plus, we operate a fully online, digital customer relationship management system. This means that order details aren’t printed out, and all of our measuring and installation guides are housed online too. We also ensure that all the paper, cardboard, and plastic used in our Hove office and warehouse is recycled. We also follow ethnical manufacturing procedures.

Are eco friendly shutters easy to measure and fit?

You’ll be thrilled to learn that it’s easy to measure and fit your dream eco shutters, even for those with minimal DIY experience. Get your window measurements right - which is a breeze with measuring guides - and the installation is simple. That’s because our eco shutters are made-to-measure to your exact specifications, so all you need to do is attach them to your window. And should you get stuck at any stage, our team of shutter experts is always ready to lend a helping hand.

Which shutters do you recommend?

Shutters are so versatile that practically any configuration of style, colour, and material will work. Full height shutters in white are a safe bet, and our most popular configuration. Consider solid shutters if you live in a Georgian property and want a more classic look. Café style shutters are perfect for ground floor rooms, creating a perfect blend of privacy and natural light exposure.

Slat size is an important consideration too. The larger the slat size the more light will enter the room with the slats open. If you’re unsure, 76mm slats are a safe bet. Again, if you want some expert advice, contact our friendly team.

Do eco shutters come in different colours?

Yes, they do! We use a range of high quality paints and stains to help you achieve the interior look you’ve always dreamed of. Choose faux wood for Snow White and Silk White, or go bold with our hardwood range for a variety of colours, stains, and limewash finishes. You can view all of the colours we have available and order up to 2 free samples for free.

That’s easy. Once you’re happy with your window or door measurements, shop our shutters to get the ball rolling. Start by selecting a style and material and then configure by number and direction of panels, slat size, colour and so on. It’s all fairly self explanatory, but you’re welcome to contact the team with your questions.
