See our blinds materials

The sun comes and goes here in the UK, but you can adjust quickly with blinds.
Adjust each level according to the weather, whatever you do.
Do you want to fill the room with natural light on a sunny day? No problem.
Do you prefer to dim the light to get comfortable in front of the television?
Again, no problem. Shades offer unrivaled light control.
protect your privacy
The blinds open or close, but because each layer of your new blinds can be tilted individually, you don't have to compromise on light and privacy - you can have both.
This balance makes interior blinds a perfect solution for homes with a view or bay windows facing a street or driveway.
Make your home stand out
Most window coverings are designed to look good on the inside, but custom blinds look good from every angle.
By exploring different styles and level types, you can transform an average-looking property into a stylish, well-thought-out home that stands out on the street for all the right reasons.
keep your space clean
A fabric display case often works as a great dust trap - trapping particles, pet dander and allergens in your room without an easy cleaning option.
Shutters are different - each slat can be quickly and conveniently wiped or shaken off with a feather duster.
Not only will your room look fresh and airy, it will also be easy to keep spotlessly clean!
lock the heat
Shutters offer something few other window coverings can: the ability to keep heat in your home.
Our blinds are "thermally dynamic", which means they reflect heat.
For you, this means that blinds will help lock in heat in your space, keeping warmth and comfort levels high while reducing energy consumption.
match your style
When it comes to versatility, blinds have no limits!
Whether you want wooden blinds in fancy or unusual shapes, or want to use our custom color option to perfectly match your room, your local Shuttercraft can meet your needs.
Your stunning blinds will becustom made for your windows.
