Will shutters darken my room? 

No, as long as they are lined up to your windows. The Fraser James Blinds team always advises our customers to keep shutter doors in line with the windows for the best results.

What shutters are best for me? 

If you have done some research but are still struggling to decide on the right style of shutters for you, try our shutters comparison tool. Simply answer a sequence of questions and we will recommend a style of shutters to suit your needs.

Are there sample colours available? 

During your free home visit, the fitters will bring a selection of samples including different shutter styles and colours for you to choose from.

How long is the lead time for my order? 

The current lead time is approximately 10-12 weeks. However special colours and shapes can add to the lead time. On placing your order, your sales advisor will confirm your lead time.

Do you do ‘supply only’? 

No. We cannot guarantee any order we have not measured and installed ourselves.

Do you offer a measure and installation service?
