Plantation Shutters (also commonly referred to as Window Shutters, Internal Shutters or even Shutter Blinds) are a very popular window treatment with those who wish to add a touch of luxury and elegance to their home. These wooden shutters also give great flexibility in terms of ventilation, light, sound deadening and privacy due to their louvred slats.  At First Choice Blinds we offer plantation shutters at incredibly competitive prices.

Our range of shutters are second to none in terms of quality, the timber and other raw materials used are the finest we have found, and the careful workmanship of the carpenters and joiners involved are beyond reproach – you won’t find a better shutter for your home.

First Choice Blind are a leading supplier of Plantation Shutters in Ireland due to our commitment to quality and our dedication in ensuring our shutters are affordable.

                       What Are Plantation Shutters?


Plantation Shutters are wooden shutters with horizontal slats (louvres) that can be tilted open or closed, the slats are set in a hinged panel which allows you to open the shutters fully when required.

A tilt-rod runs through the wooden louvres to angle them and control ventilation and light in the room.

shutter-blinds-dublinYou can choose to have shutters on the bottom half of a window only (café style), or have multiple panels which allow you to open the top half while keeping the bottom half closed (tier-on-tier).

Plantation Shutters can be fitted to any shape window or door, including angled windows,  arches or any unusual shapes. Originally designed to offer great privacy they are now often used as a design statement as they add a touch of elegance to any home.


       Shutter Styles From First Choice Blinds

                                                      Full Height

This is the most popular style of plantation shutter, and can be fitted with or without midrail. The midrail can also be placed to match horizontal glazing bars on your windows for optimal light & privacy control.

                                                         Café Style

Café style shutters can be installed to a point anywhere between the top and bottom of a window. The most common implementation is halfway, but any point suiting your window or room is possible. Café style allows light to flood in through the top part of your uncovered window while controlling privacy in the lower part.

                                                     Tier on Tier

Two sets of shutters installed one on top of the other in the same frame. This option offers flexible control of light and privacy as each set of shutters operates independently, allowing light in through the top half of the window, for example, while closing the bottom tier for privacy. The split can be positioned in line with a horizontal glazing bar on the window.


Ideal for use where multi-fold Shutter configurations are required such as doors, French windows or room dividers, this style uses tracks to allow a wide expanse of shutter to fold and glide back from the window to open fully.

                                                                                                                                                                                                 Solid Shutters

Solid shutters are not louvred and as such provide near blackout where required and better insulation from noise. Also available with a solid shutter base and louvred top – idea for half glazed doors.
