Tier On Tier Shutters

Tier On Tier Shutters

Tier-on-tier shutters are the most adaptable of our shutter options. They allow you to open the top section of shutter panels separately from the bottom section. This makes them an excellent choice if you want to maintain privacy while still allowing maximum light into your room.

Tier on tier shutters are ideal if you intend to open the top panels frequently. If you intend to keep them closed the majority of the time, our full height shutters may be a better choice.

Assume you have a window in your living room or bedroom that looks out onto a busy street. With tier-on-tier shutters, you can close the lower tier with the slats slightly tilted for privacy while folding back the top panel to let in natural light.

As a general rule, we recommend narrow-width panels hinged together. This means they can ‘concertina’ or fold onto each other when opened, keeping your windows clear. Don’t be afraid to use an odd number of panels; they still look balanced when folded back.

The Benefits of Tier-on-Tier Shutters

Complete adaptability
Is it completely open, completely closed, or somewhere in the middle? Tier-on-tier shutters allow you to have the best of both worlds.

Light and privacy
Close the lower shutters for privacy and leave the top panels open for maximum light.

Open the door without moving any furniture or accessories
You can divide your shutters in any way you want. You can, for example, place the split point directly above your desk and open your shutters without disturbing your work.

Ideal for: Larger windows or rooms that require both privacy and maximum light. You’ll also need some height and room to fold your shutters back against the wall.

Considerations: If your window is small or there isn’t a lot of space on either side, tier-on-tier may not be the best option for you. Our full-height shutters might be a better choice.
