Shutter Styles

At Costal Shutters we offer a wide selection of shutters styles. Traditionally full height shutters are the most popular but café style can look sharp within a bay window and have the added bonus of being less expensive. We also offer Solid Doors which work sympathetically with period properties. For the ultimate in bespoke shutters we also offer shaped finishes for more challenging window applications.
