Caroline Scott, a writer for The Times newspaper, has recently reached out to us again to learn more about the increasing popularity of interior window shutters in the UK. This popularity is cited by the article as being due to shutters offering a practical, easily cleaned window dressing solution and that shutters can increase energy inefficiency within a home as well as its value.
The article references how our founder Rob, “has been in the shutter business longer than anyone else, and should know a thing or two” and draws readers to look to our website and company to begin their journey looking for the right interior shutters. They also mention how Plantation Shutters Ltd revolutionised the market in 2002 after forming a partnership with Nien Made – a factory in China, which allowed for a faster turnout of a higher quality product in a much larger quantity into the UK market.
Furthermore Caroline met with our senior surveyor Dan, who has 17 years of expertise, to find out more about the whole process from initial contact to installation. Dan explained how important the measuring and fitting are due to the fact that if they aren’t done properly the shutters can negatively take over the room. Dan discussed which shutter style would suit her space the best, going through the different shutter materials and whether a classic or modern style slat would be the most appropriate look for the room.
According to the article this growing popularity of shutters is only going to continue to increase in the future as they are an ideal window covering solution - although we already knew that!
