Shutters are an excellent window dressing choice. They are durable, stylish and allow you to control the light and privacy of your home. Thanks to the wide range of shutter styles, there are shutters for every room in the home. In this blog, we are going to outline the benefits of tier on tier shutters.
Tier on tier shutters feature two shutter panels, with one on top of the other. If you are familiar with shutter styles, you can think of tier on tier shutters as a combination of full height shutters and café style shutters.
Like full height shutters, tier on tier shutters cover the full length of your window. However, they have a bottom panel and a top panel, both of which can be opened or closed. Plus, each panel has a row of slats, which can be tilted.
For example, if you wanted to maintain privacy in your lounge without blocking out the sunlight, you could keep the bottom panels closed but open the top panels.
Like most window shutters, tier on tier shutters offer a range of benefits. They are a popular shutter style due to their versatility. Plus, they look pretty fantastic too! Here are the key benefits of tier on tier shutters:
Unlike other window dressings, such as blinds, curtains and even some shutter styles, tier on tier shutters offer ultimate flexibility when it comes to controlling privacy and light. You can adjust the slats on the various panels, open some of the panels but have others closed, have all the panels opened or have all the panels closed.
You can enjoy the view from your home whilst shading the television from the sun or let the fresh air from the open window stream in whilst blocking out the sizzling summer sunshine. Adjusting the tier on tier shutters is super easy and it doesn’t involve any cords or wires, which can be hazardous to children and pets.
One of the biggest benefits of tier on tier shutters is the ability to ensure privacy as and when you need it. If you live on a busy street, or your home is overlooked by neighbours, you can keep the lower panels closed to ensure nosy neighbours can’t look into your home, whilst keeping the top panels open.
Tier on tier shutters also provide an added layer of security by preventing thieves from seeing into your home.
Natural daylight can brighten up even the smallest of rooms. With tier on tier shutters, you can control how much daylight you would like in your home.
During the summer months, you may choose to keep the shutters closed as this will block out the direct sunlight and keep your home nice and cool. You may open a window and tilt the slats on the panel closest to the window to allow a lovely breeze of fresh air to circulate your home.
Or you may keep the top panels open to allow plenty of sunlight in whilst maintaining privacy by keeping the bottom panels closed.
Tier or tier shutters are a beautifully stylish window dressing that complements a variety of home styles. Whether you’re going for Victorian vibes, a Scandi chic look or a modern and simplistic design, tier on tier shutters will enhance the interior and exterior décor of your home.
Also, having high-quality, fitted shutters in your home will increase its value.
As with all shutters, maintaining them could not be easier. Simply run a dry cloth over your shutters to remove dust when you are cleaning the home. Splatters and stains can also be easily removed using a damp cloth.
Tier on tier shutters are a resilient window dressing that are sure to last a lifetime.
Due to their fantastic ability to easily control the privacy and light levels, tier on tier shutters are popular in ground-floor rooms, including lounges, offices, and dining rooms.
Plus, tier on tier shutters can be made using waterproof materials, making them perfect for kitchens and other areas where humidity may be a problem, such as a laundry room.
Tier on tier shutters are ideal for most window sizes, but we recommend fitting them on tall windows, preferably with an equal 50/50 split due to the panel rail sizes.
