Window shutters have countless benefits; one, in particular, is that they’re a great child-friendly option. As younger children are naturally inquisitive and as they grow to explore many, more everyday items including window dressings that can become hazardous. In a recent lifestyle fitting, the Plantation Shutters team worked with a young family in High Wycombe.

High Wycombe is a large town to the south of Buckinghamshire. The town is lively and modern since the recent redevelopment. There is plenty to see and do, for example, Hughenden Manor which was home to Victorian Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli and the famed Roald Dahl Museum.

The clients were after a window dressing for a number of rooms in their home that was going to suit both their house and lifestyle. With young children having a child-safe option was vital and a window dressing option that was going to be a long-lasting and durable. Plantation Shutters were the perfect solution! They are the ideal option, with no cords, braids, loop, chains or wires to form potential hazards. Furthermore, after seeing shutters on a neighbouring property, our clients liked the look of shutters and this consolidated plantation shutters as the best option.

After an at-home consultation, our expert measurers advised our clients to install full height style shutters, which cover the entire area of the window. This style is ideal as you are able to control light and privacy, perfect for afternoon naps for little ones. Combined with the chosen style, clients opted for our Classic range which features a smaller slat size that gives the room a cosier feel.

Craftwood MDF was selected for the material option as it provides a durable and smooth finish whilst being our most cost-effective option. MDF, like all our shutter materials, is resistant to chipping, cracking, fading and warping and this, therefore, a long-lasting product. The clients chose the colour Bright White, which complimented each room in their home.

Plantation shutters are the perfect choice for any busy family as they are durable, easy to maintain, offer privacy, light control and of course stylish! For all your plantation shutter queries please call us now on 020 8871 9222 or email our friendly team today.
