Tier on Tier Shutters
Tier on tier shutters cover the whole window, but the top and bottom can be opened independently of one another. For this reason the tier on tier shutter style offer a versatile shutter combination
Tier on Tier shutters give the option of ‘opening up’ the upper panels to allow in maximum light whilst maintaining the privacy afforded by keeping the lower set closed.
Furthermore, when closed across the window, tier on tier shutters give the appearance of having more solid timber than a set of ‘full height’ shutters. This is due to the way the tops of the lower panels and the bottoms of the upper panels meet.
Tier on Tier Shutters are particularly suitable for angled bay windows, because of their versatility and application. Although one frame can be used to mount all the shutters, tier-on-tier style provides a great option to effectively treat each window in the bay as a separate shutter and panel. This gives a desired look and finish while allowing good use of the middle window and shutter if required.

Tier on Tier Shutters and Bay Windows
Tier on tier shutters are an ideal window dressing for bay windows. They can allow privacy and light control, and are a perfect companion for bay windows. You can keep the lower part closed and open up the top completely, thus allowing the full light to enter the rooms. These is what bay windows were invented for: allow maximum lights in buildings!
But if you have a bay window on the ground floor, privacy could be an issue. Also, the larger the window surface, the more heat can be lost in winter. Window shutters, and wooden shutters in particular, are a great barrier against heat dispersion. However, a full height shutter in a large bay might not be very convenient. Tier on tier is probably the best choice in these cases. You can always book a free survey and talk to one of our expert surveyors. They can show you the best solutions for your home.
