If you have ever been in a situation where you need an interior louvre door but cannot find the size anywhere, it can be very frustrating. One option is to have a door specially made for you but the high costs of specialist carpentry can make this option unaffordable.

Simply Shutters stock over 2000 louvre doors in all available pre-set heights and widths but, if you are still struggling to find the size you are looking for, there are some options.

Our louvre doors have sufficient timber to allow for some trimming. If you are going to trim your door we recommend trimming no more than 20mm from the top and 20mm from the bottom of the door (a total of 40mm from the height) and 7mm from each side of the door to reduce the width (14mm in total). Anything more than this could weaken the door, potentially causing it to bow or warp.

It is also recommended to allow 2mm per gap to allow for hinge placement and door movement.


If you are still unable to achieve the size you require through trimming we offer a bespoke joinery service whereby our professional carpenters can modify any of our doors to your specific requirements.

We charge £35+ VAT for this customisation service, a price that you will struggle to match anywhere for a comparable service.
