From the City to the Seaside

Living Room Door Shutters by Plantation Shutters Ltd
From the City to the Seaside

A lot of our clients hark from all corners of the country and have not just the one property but at times, more than one. A client of ours from London has a getaway flat by the sea for those summer months and we paid this particular flat a visit, and just in time for the summer months too.

The seaside spot of Rustington is where our merry men headed for this set of doors leading outside from this living room as part of a smart set of flats that overlook the English Channel. With the glass doors being so large, the client was in desperate need of privacy for their living room as well as some control over what can be overbearing sunlight at times.

The only real option, in terms of shutter style, was Full Height as an uncompromising choice for privacy covering the entire frame. With that, this style can often feel slightly utilitarian, so our expert surveyor suggested a mid-rail. Additionally, the client went for one of our smoothest shutter materials, Silkwood, which incorporates an MDF shutter and fixing frame adding a certain level of weight to the panels and therefore in need of the support from a mid-rail.

As the flat itself has a modern, industrial tone to it with the huge classic cinema style tripod light and the quilted leather sofa, foot stool and fantastically roguish fluffy bean bags, a classic style wouldn’t work with the décor. So, the client went for our Modern slat size which fits perfectly with the room and with the Nickel-Plated fittings against the Silk White colour of the panels, adds to the chrome feel that the tripod lamp brings.

With our client’s choices locked in, their especially chosen specs were sent off to our manufacturer who started to construct their interior made to measure shutters which were sent over to our digs in Battersea, here in London, and our in-house fitters then headed off for a day by the sea. The shutters were put up in next to no time and ready to be enjoyed.

So, what do you make of this home from home? Just the right thing for the seaside? Or would you have gone for something else? All of our clients have their own styles that they adopt for their kingdoms, whether by the sea or in the heart of the city, and you can find mountains upon mountains for the different styles they take on for themselves in our gallery and see which style of shutter suits you best too.

And 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.
