Frequently Asked Questions
Do Window Shutters give you total blackout?
Shutters alone do not provide complete blackout They are however, actually one of the better window dressings for controlling light in a room and can create a very dark environment when fully closed. Compared to Venetian blinds and curtains, shutters are far more effective at light closure. They’re also much better than lightweight fabrics such as Roman or Roller blinds.

Plantation shutters will allow light to seep between louvres and also between the panel and the frame.
