A Beautiful Finish to a North London Flat

A Beautiful Finish to a North London Flat

We ventured off to North London recently to help out a client near the Queen’s Park area with their living room windows. Only to find something that we don’t tend to find. A square bay window.

As you can see from the picture, it’s quite different to what we’re used to seeing at Plantation Shutters but we enjoy a challenge. So we sent over one of our top surveyors to have a look and work out the best options for our client.

As the property looked out onto a very busy road, our surveyor suggested our client choose Full Height shutters to help themselves have total privacy from onlookers and protection from unwanted sunlight as the front of their building didn’t have a large amount of coverage from the sun. The client agreed with our surveyor but opted for a mid rail for a break in the frame giving them a more refined look in the traditionally designed living room.

When it came to a decision on the material that our client want their beautiful shutters to be in, our client had to keep their budget in mind so with that we suggested our most affordable material we have on offer in our range, MDF. MDF is a slightly heavier material than the rest of our range but some of our clients prefer that as it has an added bonus of making a room feel more secure. And as it’s highly affordable, it’s very popular.

To add to this highly fashion wary appearance our client opted for the very popular and fashionable In Vogue slat size that is 76mm which gives each panel a very modern, minimalist look that a very large amount of our clients prefer.

All of the styles of shutters that we offer have incredible ease of use when opening the panels or opening and closing the louvres. But some of our clients prefer to have tilt rods installed for to heighten this ease but also as an aesthetic decision for a traditional appearance. Our client opted for a tilt rod that was centrally placed on the panel which added to their regal appearance.

With the client’s selection of MDF for their materials, the last choice to make was for that of a colour for the client’s stunning shutters. And as the room itself is that of a light cream colour for the most part, our surveyor and client agreed that the neutral colour of Pure White was the best option for the room and with White coloured hinges, it would especially blend in. And so creating this very special living room.

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.
