Tier on tier shutters are effectively full height shutters with a twist, they are the most versatile and adjustable window shutters out of all our shutter styles.

Tiered shutters also known as split shutters give you two separate shutter panels one above another. Commonly known as sash window shutters, they enable you to open the top tier shutters allowing light to fill the room, whilst keeping the bottom tier closed for privacy.

Tier on tier shutters look simply stunning in a living room or bedroom. These plantation shutters are designed with practicality in mind, which makes them great for modern-day living, easy to clean, a complete privacy solution and great for children and adults alike, they are a classic within our wooden shutter range.


What’s the best shutter material for tier on tier shutters?

Shutter Blinds materials vary, however, if you’re looking for the best then hardwood shutters are without a doubt the best and most suitable for tier on tier plantation shutters. When we build plantation shutters in a tier on tier style, we always focus on the strength of both the shutter panel and most importantly its hinges.

Bifolding tier on tier shutters add a lot of pressure onto the hinges and shutter framework, if cheap MDF shutters are used, the hinges are not biting into a suitable material and over time with use the hinges become loose and result in the panels dropping out of line or even worse falling off.

Wooden shutters prevent any of this from happening, by providing a strong fixing point for the hinges. The screws bite into the grain of the timber and once in place, they will not move or become loose over time.


Different styles of tiered shutters

We can offer a style of tier on tier shutters to suit any style of decor. They can be used to provide a contemporary looking shutter solution, with the addition of a hidden tilt rod and a larger louvre, this makes for a cleaner more simplistic looking shutter. 

Alternatively, for a more traditional looking shutter, we can use a smaller louvre with a centre tilt rod, perfect for any Edwardian or Victorian-style homes, we have become calling this style ‘Dulwich shutters’, as it is often the shutter style of choice for homes located in Dulwich and South London.

We also offer solid shutters, which provide almost 100% blackout with the shutters closed. They are designed as a shaker style shutter and bring a touch of originality, perfect for those looking to restore character back into their home.

All styles of tier on tier shutters can either be finished in a wood stain or a sprayed paint finish. The South East Shutters offers the largest range of standard paints and wood stains, however, if that’s not enough we offer custom colour matching to really hit the spot.
