Full height shutters are right for almost any room in the home, and we’re here to tell you why. Versatile. Stylish. Resilient. Full height shutters tick just about every box. In this blog, we are going to share everything you need to know about them and if full height shutters are right for your room.

What Are Full Height Shutters?

Well, it’s pretty self-explanatory. But for those of you who aren’t shutter nerds like us, full height shutters are shutters that cover the whole window. They feature full length panels with louvres that can be tilted. If you have particularly tall windows, you can have midrails dividing the top and bottom part of the panels. Alternatively, you can have splits in the panels for more control.

Full height shutters are the most popular type of shutters. Most likely because this versatile window dressing looks amazing on almost all windows. Plus, full height shutters can be added to doors, such as patio doors or conservatory doors.

Are Full Height Shutters Ideal For All Rooms?

Unless you have an unusually shaped window (which requires Shaped Shutters), full height shutters will likely be perfect for every room in your home.

Thanks to their style and versatility, full height shutters look amazing in living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms and offices. Full height shutters are also available in waterproof materials, meaning they can be used in kitchens, bathrooms or other rooms that may be humid, such as laundry rooms.

The Benefits Of Full Height Shutters

Oh, where do we even start?! Full height shutters have a ton of benefits – it’s why they are suitable for so many rooms!


If your home is overlooked or located on a busy street, you will likely prefer shutters that provide plenty of privacy. Because full height shutters cover the entirety of your windows, they are perfect for ground floor rooms or bedrooms, where privacy is essential. Depending on your window, full height shutters are available with bi-folding panels, meaning you can open them fully and enjoy the view.

Light Control

As well as controlling the privacy, full height shutters also allow you to control the light levels in your home. You can block out the scorching summer sun to keep your home cool during the summer or let the natural daylight floor through your home in the winter.


Because full height shutters are precisely fitted to your windows, the panelling prevents heat from escaping. Plus, the thick, high-quality materials used for our full height shutters will keep the cold out and insulate your home during the winter months. Better still, full height shutters will block out noise pollution.

Sturdy And Durable

Like all shutters, full height shutters are a sturdy and resilient window dressing. Although they may cost a little more than curtains or blinds, shutters are truly long-lasting. They are the only window dressing you need!


At Shuttertec, you can customise your full height shutters. You can choose from 100 different colours, 5 different louvre styles and 3 different tilt rod configurations. Better yet, we can custom colour match to any colour you have, whether it be Dulux, Crown, Valspar or Farrow & Ball. So, your shutters can perfectly match the décor of your home.

There’s no denying it, shutters are a beautifully stylish window dressing. They seamlessly complement all types of home décor. Perhaps choose a neutral shade for a clean, minimalist look that will match your home interiors no matter how many times you re-decorate. Or opt for a bold colour and make a statement out of your full height shutters.

Easy To Maintain

Unlike blinds or curtains (which are notoriously challenging to clean!), shutters are super easy to maintain. Simply dust them with a dry cloth or duster when you’re cleaning the home. Stains can be easily removed with a damp cloth.

Child And Pet Friendly

With discreet tilt rods (and not a cord or wire in sight), full height shutters are completely child and pet friendly.
