Check out our tier-on-tier shutters if you need more control over natural light and privacy within your home
Tier-on-tier shutters are ideal for homeowners that require a really versatile style of window shutters. The top and bottom tiers operate independently so that you can have enhanced control over how much light can get into your home, as well as how well people can see into your property from the outside. Our tier-on-tier shutters are the perfect solution for people who have a lounge or bedroom that sits at street level, and are also a popular choice for bay window shutters, as they let in natural light while reducing glare and boosting privacy.
How tier-on-tier shutters work
Tier-on-tier shutters are similar to full-height shutters in that they cover the length of the window. The difference is that the top and bottom panels are divided and function individually. So, the top panel can be opened while the bottom one is shut (and vice versa), and the slats on each can be closed, tilted or fully opened independently. The shutters can be fitted to windows of all types, and are particularly effective on sash windows and as bay window shutters, where there are two levels to the window. If you are not sure whether tier-on-tier shutters will be suitable for your window, the Origin Shutters team can help.
Why choose tier-on-tier shutters?
Being able to operate the top and bottom tiers of your shutters separately means that you can efficiently control the privacy and light within the room. During the day, you can fully open the top panel while keeping the bottom set of slats tilted or closed, enabling light to flow in through the top while stopping people from being able to see into your home. Then, in the evening, you can simply close both tiers to give you maximum privacy in the room.
Tier-on-tier shutters that suit your needs
The great thing about bespoke shutters is that they can be fully tailored to meet your needs – both in terms of style and functionality. Deciding which shutters to have depends on the requirements of the room you’re putting them in, as well as your stylistic preferences. You may need tier-on-tier shutters for your bathroom, for example, in which case a waterproof option would be most suitable. If you want your window shutters to add a splash of colour to your lounge, you might choose basswood shutters finished with your chosen colour. Or, for that classic white plantation shutters look on a budget, perhaps you’ll opt for medium-density fibreboard (MDF). Whichever option you choose, you can create shutters that you love and that align perfectly with your requirements for both appearance and functionality.
