Plantation shutters provide little light bleed and allow full control over the amount of light that is filtering into a room. Windows shutters have become a popular window dressing for bedrooms, as they allow you to set your desired volume of natural light. With the louvres open and the blackout blind fully up, the natural light will filter into the room.
When closed the blackout shutter system will provide a fantastic blackout blind solution, helping you sleep through even the brightest summer mornings.
Ultimate Blackout solutions
At South East Shutters, we have improved the blackout efficiency of our shutters even further still. We are proud to be market leaders in achieving as close to complete blackout as possible.
Our blackout plantation shutters are designed to be the ultimate blackout blinds. They are designed to reduce the amount of natural light filtering into a bedroom.
With a specially designed frame that allows for an integrated blackout honeycomb blind to sit behind the shutter panel, the system provides two layers of protection a shutter and a blind.
To operate the integrated blind you simply open the shutters and then pull the blind down into your desired position.
The integrated room darkening blinds are available in two styles and are available throughout our wooden shutter ranges.
Blackout shutter materials
Our Blackout shutters are available in a choice of three of our wood ranges Pine, Poplar and Basswood. Each material is designed to work perfectly with the integrated pleated blind for complete ease of use. Our wooden shutters are spray painted using the very best PU paint finishes for hardwearing usage.
A typical bay window would be dressed with white shutters, as stunning a window treatment as white shutters are, they do have a tendency to reflect light back into a room. It is this characteristic that makes wooden shutters such a great solution for making a room seem bigger.
Summer mornings as lovely as they are, often wake us up much earlier than we would like, the early morning sun can reflect off of the white shutters, and brighten up a bedroom before we are ready to start the day. The perfect fitting integrated blind system will stop just this from happening.
The blackout blinds are available as tensioned pleated blinds, which means no cords! you simply use the central handle to set the desired position of the blind and then close the shutters to achieve optimal efficiency.
Our Blackout shutters can be selected with overlapping rebated louvres to further improve room darkness. Our rebated louvre is available in our most popular 76mm size, each louvre is grooved to overlap the next and as a result, they lay completely flat when closed.
By laying completely flat and overlapping one another our rebated louvres are shown to greatly improve blackout efficiency.
Our full range of standard oval louvres is also available with our blackout shutters if required.
Blackout roller blinds
We recommend avoiding blackout roller blinds or blackout vertical blinds if you are looking to achieve maximum blackout in a room. The problem with blinds including Venetian blinds is the light filters in through the sides of the blind.
In comparison blackout plantation shutters blackout a much greater volume of light.
