Tailormade shutters are a timeless style statement. If you are trying to achieve a specific look to match your existing colour scheme but are hampered by colour limitations found with other companies, then don’t worry! No shade is impossible with S:CRAFT thanks to the custom colour option.
As well as being expertly crafted for your space, the colour matching service means Tailormade shutters can meet your design choices. We take pride in the quality of the shutters we supply, which is why custom colours receive several coats of paint, as well as a UV resistant layer, preventing fading caused by direct sunlight. We can match any high street paint including major brands.
Versatile and insulating, shutters do still let a small amount of light into your home, even when closed, which is why Tailormade offer an integrated room darkening blind system. Sitting snugly within its own channel behind the shutter, the room darkening blind provides the functionality of blackout blinds combined with the contemporary look of standard shutters.
If you or your family struggle to sleep due to external light, then the room darkening system is a must. Virtually eliminating all external light from the room, it is ideal for shift workers who need to sleep during the day, as well as for nurseries and home cinemas.
Dust allergies and sensitivities are increasingly becoming a concern for the modern family, so if you or anyone in your family suffers, then shutters are a great choice. Quick and easy to clean with a simple wipe of a damp cloth, shutters do not store dust particles as easily as fabric window coverings.
At Tailormade, we are proud to offer a unique coating to help combat dust allergies. Hygienilacis available as a coating for our wooden shutters, a product which is regularly used by hospitals to help prevent exposure to bacteria.
Whether you have a full allergy, or just sensitive to the microbes and bugs found in dust, the hygienic coating is an option that will make a difference in your home. Hygienilac can kill most types of bacteria within as little as 24 hours, and is effective throughout its lifetime, which could be up to 10 years.
Fire Retardant Coating
Our entry level Antigua shutters, made from premium MDF with a polymer coating, are available with a fire retardant coating for an additional charge.
Silent Tilt Rod
If you are looking for a cleaner, more contemporary look for your shutters, the hidden (or “silent”) tilt rod option could be something to consider. Tilt rods are usually connected to each individual louvre with metal pins, allowing for an easy movement to control the light.
Rather than a visible rod, silent tilt controls the louvres by a mechanism within the panel itself, meaning that if you tilt one, the others move with it. For shutters with a mid-rail or tier-on-tier split, the different sections are still operated separately, as with the visible tilt rod option.
You can choose where the silent tilt is located, and for larger windows you could have more than one silent tilt section to your shutter for maximum versatility.
Ideal for room dividers and wardrobe doors, if you wish to have fixed louvres as a a style statement, rather than for functional purposes. However, the visible or hidden tilt rod options are still the best choice if you wish to use your shutters for controlling the light, or provide controllable ventilation to your wardrobe.
Time is frequently a deciding factor when renovating a home. Although we recommend sea freight as our default shipping option (10-12 weeks), you can opt for air freight, which will reduce the amount of time you have to wait (8-10 weeks).
Sea freight is our recommended shipping method due to its consistency in delivery quality. Although every effort is made to make sure your new shutters are delivered safety, more handling is involved in the air freight process, so there is slightly more risk of damage in transit.
Your shutters will be thoroughly wrapped and well packaged in the factory, regardless of transportation method.
