Besides looking fantastic, shutter blinds have several advantages over other window dressings. Whether it’s privacy, light management, heat retention, noise reduction, or acting as a deterrent to would be intruders, we’re sure you will love everything that sash window shutters have to offer.
There are lots of measure and install companies out there, so why opt for the DIY shutters option? Well, we're glad you asked. Measuring and installing wood shutters for sash windows is much easier than you might think, and you can save a few pennies in the process too. In fact, you could save up to 40% on the price of shutters by measuring and installing your own sash window shutters.
When choosing wooden shutters for sash windows you should always consider your window and specific needs. If you have short sash windows, we suggest full height shutters. For taller sashes you will have a few more options (think Georgian or Victorian sash window shutters). Full height is still a great choice, but why not mix it up with Tier-on-tier shutters? These give you separate panel control, so you can hinge open the top and bottom sections independently.
If you think you can do without the top half, then café style shutters for sash windows are another great option. These normally go halfway up the window, meaning you have the privacy afforded by shutters, while still allowing plenty of light to shine through.
Truly though, there is no correct style when it comes to DIY internal shutters for sash windows. So, no matter your choice, you’re sure to find the right style for you.

While sash windows are common in modern homes, they’re ubiquitous in period properties. Victorian sash window shutters are a great addition to any traditional space, as are Georgian sash window shutters.
While contemporary white shutters look great in any home, an old property will be enhanced by our limewash shutters. With their distinctive grained look, they offer the perfect finish for a more rustic or traditional homestead.
When considering sash window shutter ideas in a period property, there are plenty of colour options too. As already mentioned, white is a great choice for contemporary homes, but you can't go wrong with white shutters in an old home either.
