White Wooden Plantation Shutters fitted in North and Central London

Much has changed at Changing Curtains, please see the "info" page for full details. We have re-opened our newly refurbished Highgate showroom and have expanded our range of shutters and with our newly expanded fitting team (probably the best in London) we can now fully cover North London, East London, Central London and Docklands, together with much of Essex and Herts. Changing Curtains have been fitting shutters for many years and we support our products, for that reason we do not sell the cheapest shutters nor the most expensive, we sell good quality reasonably priced wooden shutters that offer excellent long term value.  The shutters themselves are only one half of the equation they also require fitting, all of the shutters shown on this page were fitted by Changing Curtains.

Our newest innovation is white wooden shutters with motorised blackout honeycomb blinds. These combine the elegance and privacy of your usual shutter blinds with superb blackout (thanks to the wooden shutter frame) and noise reduction from the honeycomb blinds. Honeycomb blinds - similar to duette blinds - comprise two layers of fabric with an air gap between, this provides for excellent acoustic and thermal insulation. We do not claim they make your windows soundproof, however there is a definite reduction in noise levels (very beneficial for a good nights sleep on a busy road, also the "blackout" and reduced noise levels can be very helpful to hospital doctors, musicians and others working unsociable hours). We have provided a link to our YouTube channel where we have a short video demonstrating this product.

total of 4 panels with mid-rails and 8 tilt rods

For many years our timber of choice has been Paulownia
"fast growing, dimensionally stable, straight grain and light weight" source Wikipedia

We now offer Douglas Fir as an alternative
"noted for its strength, straightness, hardness and durability, US naval minesweepers are constructed of Douglas Fir" source Wikipedia


Shutters come in 5 louvre sizesl

47mm - 63mm - 76mm - 89mm - 110mm

Bigger louvres tend to suit bigger windows and let in more light

Smaller louvres can offer more privacy



If your windows are very wide or require extra large shutter panels we would usually recommend our Paulownia option because of weight issues, if you have an active family life we might suggest the Douglas Fir for its durability. We believe both offer vast improvements on the more common Basswood or Poplar options. Not all shutters are the same.

Whilst we guarantee our shutters for 3 years,
we do expect them to last much longer.

Shutter prices fluctuate with exchange rates and
periodic sales incentives. Changing Curtains are
always competitive and will usually price match any
quote from a reliable local retailer offering a similar
quality of shutter and a comparable standard of
installation and service.

With a frame which mounts directly onto your
window frames or is side fixed inside a recess,
together with wood to wood closure of the louvres
shutters offer excellent draughtproofing and
insulation qualities. When you also consider how
flexible they are in terms of controlling light, glare
and privacy you realise that in the right location
shutters make a superb window treatment
