A Beautiful Merging of a Traditional Look in a Modern home

Going straight into the week after the Royal Wedding insanity has passed with a news story about how we helped a client with their huge bay window that spoiling family time in this well-loved living room.

Having a bay window in the family home is the perfect backdrop to all forms of quality time with the ones you love. But when a busy street and invasive natural light spoil this for you, it’s time to fix the problem and fix it correctly.

This home in the middle of a family heavy spot in Wood Green, just off the North Circular and Harringay, gave us a call and we had one of our expert surveyors pay them a visit to see how we could help.

Our client made it very clear that they wanted to be able to have total privacy but still be able to bask in the sun when it suited them, so our surveyor suggested our most flexible shutter-style: Tier on Tier. This style lets all of the frames-work independently of each other to allow the user complete manoeuvrability with the panels making everything on their terms.

With the style picked out, next was the shutter material and the client wanted a sturdy but affordable option. So, of course, we suggested the MDF material. As our entry-level product, it’s a fantastic choice as the panels are made from a plastic base which adds a little more weight to them and of course, a very solidified feel to them.

Next on the list were the styling options which the client was very clear on. With the lighter styling of the homes décor, they were after something to go hand in hand with the panels within the design of their home, so they went for the very popular Pure White, but with Bushed Nickel, fittings to offset the design as they didn’t want the design to be plain and dull. With that they also wanted to avoid the slats from looking like a grill, so they opted for the very fashionable In Vogue size and a Central Tilt Rod to add to the traditional style they were after.

With all their specially picked designs locked in, we sent them off to our manufacturers to have them especially constructed millimetre by millimetre. Before a short while later, they arrived at our digs in Battersea and our boys raced off across the river to have them up and ready to be enjoyed in no time.

Are you a fan of this beautiful mash of traditional design with a modern setting in mind? Or would you have preferred a more direct style? As always Plantation Shutters are the perfect choice for any busy family as they are durable, easy to maintain, offer privacy, light control and of course style!

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.
