Stylish shutters

Considering shutters but uncertain about the best type for your needs? Blind Designs Urban Shutters are an excellent choice for your home—decorative, functional, and easy to clean and maintain. Paul O’Brien from Blind Designs highlights the key benefits of the Urban Shutter and how to choose shutters for your home.


The durability of Urban Shutters makes them ideal for today’s busy lifestyles. They never require painting or staining since the colour is embedded into the shutter itself. Everyday scratches and dents do not affect the finish or colour—minor scratches can simply be sanded out. Additionally, individual louvres can be replaced with ease—simply snap out the old louvre and clip in a new one.


Urban Shutters resist the damaging effects of moisture, thanks to their polysilk vinyl construction, making them the perfect choice for wet or humid environments such as kitchens and bathrooms.

Insulation for your home

Urban Shutters help reduce outside noise and lower heating and air conditioning costs with their excellent insulating properties, thanks to the robust cell structure of the frames and louvres. Your blind professional, who will measure, specify, and install your shutters, can advise you on the best option for your individual window, considering its structure, shape, and features. Blind Designs can also help guide you in the right direction.
