Their robust design makes them compatible with almost any kind of window. It is proven that they will blend in with any interior décor and in any living space of your home because of their minimalistic nature.
Full Height Shutters are mostly installed in taller windows requiring complete revamping and styling. These Shutters are designed in such a way that the top and bottom louvers of the panel can be operated separately, this done by using a solid horizontal dividing rail known as Mid rail. With the help of a Mid Rail, Full Height Shutters can be controlled for ultimate privacy and light control.
