The Classics

With a traditional brick home, you can’t go wrong with the classics.

Full height
Full height shutters are an elegant choice to perfectly complement the charm of red brick – or any brick, for that matter.

Their clean lines and full-length panels create a striking contrast with warm brick tones. With full height, there are no wrong answers.

Café style
Inspired by the chic shutters of 19th century Parisian cafés, these shutters cover the lower portion of the window, offering privacy without compromising style.

Café style shutters are a wonderful companion piece for brick homes. They’ll stop passersby from peering into your home, all while giving them something to admire.

Tier on tier: Versatility and style

Now for something a little different. Made of independently operating top and bottom sections, tier on tier shutters are a unique blend of form and function.

Tier on Tier shutters come in various shades, but if you're looking for a contemporary edge that contrasts beautifully with red brick, our Signal Grey will work perfectly.
