Interior Styling brought directly to you this spring

When the sun starts to shine, we begin to get excited for the fast-approaching summertime and start thinking about how to make sure our interiors are ready for the summer months. Usually we’d seek the opportunity to pile into garden centres and home stores to browse and start purchasing everything we need to get our homes summer ready, but many are reluctant to visit stores to avoid long ques and to travel out. If that's the case, here’s some tips on re-vamping your home, without leaving house, ready for summer.

Utilise online platforms

There are so many online resources available for interior inspiration for you to browse non-made-to-measure products and purchase directly online. You can have these orders delivered directly to you or alternatively arrange for collection to avoid spending too much time within shops and around other customers.

Many retailers have adjusted their working style to accommodate non-contact shopping styles so although it’s tempting to be drawn to large companies who have always offered an online or collection service, don’t forget about your smaller local and independent retailers as they will need your business and support more than ever – you also have the benefit of a more personalised, friendly service which sometimes larger corporations are unable to provide.

These smaller retailers are especially fantastic for unique purchases where one-off statement pieces are readily available and as the stores see less business traffic, you are less likely to come across duplicates of your new talking piece at friends or family’s homes.

Opt for services that can come to you:

Another option to avoid busy areas is to utilise design services that can run call-out services directly to you whether it be to deliver something straight to your door or pay you a visit at your leisure. Interior designers and companies that provide custom-made products offer fantastic services brought directly to your home;

Interior designers

Interior designers are industry experts who can advise on how to tailor your home to you and your design specifications. Designers will meet with you to discuss what you are looking to do and then use their numerous contacts to ensure that you are receiving the very best products in line with your design specifications at the very best price.

We work with numerous designers here at Plantation Shutters because they know our shutters are exceptional in standard and that the supply quality and product range is unmatched. There is an abundance of designers to choose from throughout London and the surrounding areas and we always recommend looking into a designers portfolio of work prior to meeting with them to ensure that they offer styling that aligns with what you are looking to do.

Shutter specialists

As a made to measure product, your shutters are designed to suit you are your home. Clients looking to order on a supply only basis can place their order just through conversations with the friendly office team or via a virtual measure appointment. If you will be using our expert measure and fitting service which we highly recommend for those living in London or the surrounding areas, one of our experienced surveyors will come out to you for a site visit where they will bring samples and take the full accurate measurements for you. As the shutters are made to measure for you and your window, there’s no need visit stores which may be required for other window dressing options - everything can be done from your home.


Use online resources and galleries for inspiration

You can adjust your inspiration sources to allow for no or minimal contact. Where historically you may have gone to busy stores to browse around, focus your attentions on website galleries to see examples of what you are purchasing and us available resources.

For example, you can take a virtual tour of our showroom by using this link​ or visit our gallery to see some of the beautiful shutters that have previously been installed for our wonderful clients.

Alternatively, attend showrooms and spaces where they are working on an appointment only basis to ensure that you do not find yourself in a crowded space with other unexpected visitors. You can book in for a showroom appointment by giving us a call on 02088719222.

If you would like to discuss purchasing some shutters, or have any queries that the team can assist with, don’t hesitate to give us a call or use our Online Quote Calculator to get some initial material costs for your shutters.

I love my new blinds. They are high quality, look beautiful and were at the most competitive price. The fitters were also very polite and efficient.

Plantation shutters visited my flat 20 January 2022 to measure, discuss slat size and material, and give me a free estimate which I was happy with.
