The Great British Shutter Company is pleased to serve the regions of Edinburgh and Stirling, with our head office located in Glasgow. Our installation agents are well-trained and experienced to get the job done right.
Buying factory direct means that you’ll receive incredible value on shutters that are custom-manufactured to fit your home and your life perfectly.
We’re proud to have earned the trust and support of the communities in which we operate. There’s nothing like meeting somebody who is curious about updating their home and helping to inform them about all of the wonderful possibilities of plantation blinds, and then seeing their expressions when a dream home is one step closer to being a reality.
With years of experience, we’ve seen it all, and that means we’re able to offer helpful suggestions and advice that homeowners might not think about if they were doing this on their own.
The best part? Our in-home visits are free of charge and come with zero obligations. We’re even here to support the DIY community and anyone who is handy with tools and wants to do a self-installation.
We’ll Install, Or You Can Do-It-Yourself
Since we work factory-direct, and we offer the shutter hardware along with our installation service, we’re not pushy on making sure you have us install them. Whether you order an installation or decide to go the DIY route after your initial consultation, we’re here to make the whole process as smooth as possible for you.
Installing your own shutters is very do-able, we would never try to play up the difficulty. If you’re handy with taking measurements and using a screwdriver and a drill, you should have no problem getting everything installed yourself. During our consultation, we can advise you if there are any possible hurdles that could make it more difficult than usual so that you can plan accordingly. We provide detailed yet clear installation guides to support our customers that are doing their own installations.
If you would rather have one of our professionally trained shutter installation agents take the helm, the process is even simpler. Let’s discuss what we have available, we’ll quickly cover the ordering process, and we’ll go over everything else that makes The Great British Shutter Company your biggest ally when it comes to crafting the perfect window coverings for your home.
- Step 1: Reach out to us to book an in-home visit where we’ll go over all of the different options that you have available to you, and advise you on some of the choices you’ll have to make.
- Step 2: When you’re ready to proceed, we’ll measure your windows and make sure everything will be a smooth installation.
- Step 3: If you opt to install them yourself, your custom plantation shutters will arrive at your home shortly, along with our perfect installation guides. If you have chosen to have us install them for you, one of our installation agents will get the job done at a time that’s convenient for you.
- Step 4: Now, all that’s left to do is enjoy the added versatility, privacy, and elegant style of your new window shutters.
The installation process is very do-able for anyone that’s experienced with using basic tools around the house, but there’s still the possibility of chipping some point or installing things a bit crookedly, so take your time and if you’re unsure, we’re happy to come give you a hand if the DIY route doesn’t work out.
Why Buy Custom and Factory-Direct?
Quality shutters are expensive, but so is running a showroom, and doing a ton of advertising, etc. We keep our costs down by providing an impeccable service that generates a lot of referrals and word of mouth advertising. We also keep our costs down by working closely with the best shutter factories. When you’re dealing with big-box retailers, they have massive advertising budgets, huge showrooms, and staff that are trained to work in a dozen different departments instead of being experts in one area. All of these facts work against you as a customer.
By going with us, and ordering directly from the factory, your shutters are fabricated to the highest standards, based on the exact measurements of your home. You’ll get exactly what you need, it will fit perfectly, it will look amazing, and it will be the very best option for your home after factoring in everything there is to consider.
You just don’t find that same tier of knowledge, expertise, and care from big-box stores. When you work directly with us, we’re getting rid of all those extra hands that are trying to reach into the cookie jar. We’re working with you directly to get the best pricing, the best service, and the smoothest installations. We’re here for our customers in ways that you can’t find from huge retailers.
Our Service Philosophy…
From our installation agents to everybody working in our office, our staff are friendly, prompt, and have one goal in mind: To help you understand all of your options so that you can make an informed purchase on shutters that you’re going to love for years to come. Our measure + installation service ensures that your shutters fit perfect and look amazing in your home thanks to a visit from one of our experts. And once again, if you prefer to take a DIY approach, we’re happy to accommodate and to ensure it all goes smoothly for you.
First and foremost, we want you to feel happy every time you look towards your windows. This goes beyond simply ensuring that they look great, it’s about providing a flawless level of service from start to finish. It’s why we get so many referrals to friends and family members of people who have used our service.
Bringing You Amazing Value
A big part of ensuring that you’re left feeling great about your decision comes down to offering incredible value to our customers. Thanks to our relationships with top-tier manufacturers and the amount of business we do with them, we’ve been able to secure the lowest possible prices for our customers without sacrificing quality.
There are plenty of inexpensive shutters available, but some of the ones we’ve seen are barely worth going through the effort of installing. They aren’t manufactured to precise standards so they don’t end up fitting perfectly, and they aren’t made using high-quality materials so they don’t last very long. This is something we avoid entirely by sourcing nothing but top-quality materials and hardware.
We could go on all day about the high level of service we offer to custom-fit your needs, just like the perfect custom-fit of every set of shutters that we deliver to our customer’s homes, but now it’s time to talk about the hardware and why it benefits you to order factory-direct.
We regularly visit the factories where all of our shutters are made. We put a huge emphasis on quality control and making sure every set of shutters meets our high standards.
Paying a low price is great, but you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality just because you’re getting a good deal. This is at the forefront of our philosophy. We pride ourselves on offering incredible quality shutters, at perfectly attainable prices, and when those two things intersect, that’s the definition of great value.
Buying Plantation Shutters Online
Certain things are easy to shop for online because you know exactly what you’re getting, but sometimes that extra human touch makes all the difference. One of the biggest challenges to ordering things online for a home improvement project is how impersonal it can feel. It’s always seemed strange to us that it can feel so impersonal to shop for upgrades to something as personal as your living space.
This is emphasized by the fact that many of our customers aren’t always experienced with home upgrades, and we’ve heard what a nightmare it can be to try to go through this process alone. Stories like that always remind us why the extra personal touch we offer is so important, and why it’s so appreciated by all of our customers.
For the people who are more experienced when it comes to dealing with home improvements, they’re often surprised at the level of service we provide. We hear from customers who are used to having to figure everything out on their own, and they’re always so appreciative to know that we’ve got their back.
Our team of knowledgable staff is looking forward to discussing things with you. You won’t feel any pressure or obligations, we’re here to help you make the best decision about your home. You’re the one who is going to be seeing these window coverings every single day, so it’s our top priority to make sure you’re thrilled with them after making an informed decision.

As a homeowner, you don’t always know all of the options or understand the potential of your space, and that’s why having an experienced professional can make all the difference.
