Why Window Shutters are Perfect for Tudor Houses

In British high streets, town centres and big cities alike, you’re likely to find classic Georgian and Victorian terraced townhouses – ones that have remained popular with homeowners across generations. But if you live in a town or city with a significant Tudor heritage, you’ll have noticed this period’s signature architectural style on homes, pubs and more.

A common design feature of Tudor houses – and one that exploded into popularity from the Victorian and Georgian periods onwards – is the bay window. Indeed, for many, the first image they’ll call to mind when they hear the phrase ‘bay window’ is a set of classic white shutters on a generous bay window looking out onto a quintessential British street scene.

And while the bay window is a staple of Victorian and Georgian townhouse, it’s also a hallmark of a classic Tudor dwelling, too. Just think of those exposed dark wood beams carving a path through white painted mortar, and you’ll see immediately how beautiful plantation shutters could look on the inside of a bay or casement window.

Many Tudor houses are filled with windows and doors that are beautifully unique. That’s something that should be celebrated – and it’s certainly not something that should stop you installing the window-dressing solution that best suits the space. If the dream is a Tudor house with shutters, you might be pleased to know that our range of DIY shutters are made to measure, so the challenge of a tricky window is one that plantation shutters can happily stand up to.
