Why You Should Buy Plantation Shutters Direct?
Sure, you can go into a general window covering shop selling blinds and curtains and search for plantation shutters there, but we bet you haven’t considered everything you’ll be giving up by going that route. In particular:
- The best price. We cut out the middle man and get your plantation shutters direct from the manufacturer. We don’t buy via a shutter importer or middle man. That means we pay a mark up which is more often than not passed on to you, the customer.
- Working with the plantation shutter specialists. We only do wooden shutters and we only sell them direct. Because of that focus, our team has the right experience to walk you through the decisions and options available. We also know how to get around all the tricky situations like odd window shapes and difficult to dress windows.
- More choice. How many times have we fallen in love with something in a store’s catalogue only to be told it’s out of stock and might not be back “until next season.” With West Pier, you buy plantation shutters direct from a trusted manufacturer and that means that what you see on our site is what’s available to order. Every order is custom made, just for you.
- See before you buy. Whether buying for DIY installation or via our team of expert shutter installers, we help you visualise the different options available and how you can change the look of your home with plantation shutters. With a free Design Consultation, we’ll give a much clearer picture than trying to hold a catalogue up in front of your window.
Why Is Buying Direct the Only Way to Get the Best Price?
No matter whether they are big box home improvement stores or specialty window covering boutiques, retailers pay rent, staffing and other costs. More significantly, they pay a mark up due to buying via a middle man.
That last part, especially, means that stores charge a premium to customers who want to choose. Whether it’s colour, configuration, material or size expect to pay more with a regular retailers versus a shutter specialist.
When you buy plantation shutters via a regular shop, they often go through many steps of shipping and handling — which adds considerably to the cost. Basically – you pay a premium for your shutters due to having an importer in the supply chain. We help you order shutters direct from the manufacturer and have them sent to your home for DIY or installed by us.
All of these are reasons why buying plantation shutters online is the best way to get the cheapest price.
More About Ordering Directly
The process of ordering plantation shutters direct is fun and exciting. You get to choose:
- Your shutter’s configuration. Full height, café or tier on tier?
- How big do you want the louvred slats to be? Ours come in four different shutter slat sizes.
- Stain or paint? And then what colour or finish?
It should be said that there is such a thing as overly designed shutters. You want your personalisations to be subtle and refined — think a bespoke suit rather than souped-up Honda Civic. So, take your time and keep in mind how all the elements will work together.
If that seems like a lot of choices to make and you’d like a bit of expert advice, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We have a team of trained experts whose job it is to help you find the perfect shutters for you.

Buying plantation shutters from a store comes with the awkward question of how you’re going to get them home. The call comes that your order is ready and then you have to trudge back to the store and figure out how to wedge the boxes into the back seat.
It’s much easier to customise your design, click order and wait to have your plantation shutters delivered directly to your home. When you buy direct from us your shutter panels, frame and hardware are carefully packaged in separate boxes and sent directly to your door.

We pride ourselves on being particularly good at handling difficult shutter situations. Maybe you:
- Need shutters for an arch-topped window.
