Simply Shutters started small, back in the days when VHS tapes were still in circulation and with only 2 active staff members: Paul and Carol Millar, who are the company directors.
Run entirely from an office in the garage of their home with a shed as a production workshop the company was small with big ambitions.
Today we are a thriving family run business and are proud to be the UK’s No 1 Manufacturer of external, decorative window shutters.

As the business grew so did the requirement for bigger promises. 2001 was the year Simply Shutters moved into a bigger premises in South Oxhey, Watford.
2005 brought the launch of the stunning Town & Country Synthetic range. Town & Country Synthetic Shutters look, weigh and feel like timber but are not actually wood. Designed to look like a lot of existing wooden shutters on the market the Town & Country range was the next step up and demonstrated the growth and future of decorative window shutters.
As Simply Shutters grew so did the rent costs in the Greater London area, this meant it was necessary to source larger premises outside of London. Paul and Carol were able to find a suitable warehouse premises in Brandon, Suffolk and so Simply shutters moved here in 2006.
Simply Shutters launched a new range of Ramin hardwood shutters to join their existing range of UPVC Polypropylene decorative products. Available in 57 different pre-set width and height options and available to use externally or as internal doors this diverse range was another arrow in Simply Shutters’ quiver.
All good things will one day come to an end and this was the case for Simply Shutters’ Ramin hardwood shutter range with production coming to an end in 2009, as the Ramin tree gained ‘protected’ status.
In 2012 Simply Shutters officially becomes a part of the online gang by launching a brand new interactive website where customers could search and buy Simply Shutters products online. This was a huge step for the business that up until this point took orders over the telephone.
Why just have louvred shutters when you can have louvre doors too? 2013 was the year Simply Shutters expanded their range further still with the introduction of interior louvre doors available in natural pine and a selection of heights and widths. This was also the year that Simply Shutters added security Grilles to their product list. Onwards and upwards!
The success of our interior louvre door range meant it was necessary to expand and so 2015 saw us offering more louvre options than ever with both white and pine colours available and even more sizes and widths. This year also saw the introduction of our successful door modification range whereby if a customer required a door size we did not stock our carpenters would modify the nearest stock sized door to their exact requirements. Custom sized doors galore!
As an environmentally conscious company we were delighted to go paperless in 2017 by introducing our very own in house operating system called Omnia that meant we could access customer records on the computer rather than on lots of printed paper.
This year saw the further expansion of our beautiful Town & Country range with three new styles added to the range. The Croxton, The Chevington and the Kilverstone are innovative, modern louvre style shutters giving our customer even more style choice.
We also launched our Town & Country Redwood range that meant we could build any style from the Town & Country range in a Scandinavian Redwood timber. This widened our customer demographic further as customers in listed buildings and conservation areas could also enjoy Town & Country shutters on their homes.
A special year for Simply shutters as we celebrated our 20th year in business. A fantastic achievement and a humbling reality considering where we began.
To celebrate we expanded our louvre door range even more with over 64 variations in sizes available as well as sizes exclusive only to Simply Shutters.
The last two years have been trying for many companies due to the COVID 19 pandemic and lockdowns. Some smaller business didn’t make it past this period, and it is saddening to hear, especially as some businesses had been open for many years before the pandemic. We are grateful to have lived through and survived the pandemic and continue to manufacture and sell our fantastic range of products. Simply Shutters will always be a name you can rely on!
