In a stunning family home in Balham, our experts have elevated multiple windows throughout the property to new luxury levels with high-quality custom-made shutters. Shutters are the ideal window dressing to be installed on windows throughout an entire property as they allow for a consistent aesthetic no matter the interiors or purpose of the space.
In this project, some design choices have been consistently selected across each of the shutters whereas others have been uniquely tailored to the specific room or window.
All panels feature 64mm slats which is the smallest of our three standard sizes. 64mm slats are often paired with a tilt rod for louvre movement which gives a more classical shutter aesthetic. These two design features are often paired together. A timeless, classical look for window dressings works wonderfully in London properties and is a great way to combine the timelessness of a property’s architecture with an interior décor that may change over time meaning that the shutters will always match wonderfully to the space.
The final design choice that is found consistently across the shutters is the paint finish that has been chosen – Pure White. Pure White is a brilliant bright white that matches to a large proportion of windows and their surrounds. Matching to window areas is a great way to ensure that the shutters will continue to pair nicely in the room décor no matter how the interiors are changed. This is usually the preferred option as shutters are a fantastically long-lasting investment to the home so opting for a design that will be ideal for almost all interiors ensures that changes in the room will not require are differences to the shutters.
Two different shutter materials have been used throughout the home – customer favourite Hardwood in the majority of rooms and our Waterproof material in the bathroom and ensuite. Hardwood has gained its popularity with clients as it provides the perfect middle ground between the cost effective and robust nature of our entry level MDF material and the beautiful finish of wooden shutter panels. This combination is achieved from an MDF fixing frame and timber panels and louvres manufactured from specially selected hardwoods. Our Waterproof offering is ideal for bathrooms or areas where the shutters may be subject to higher levels of moisture such as steam or direct contact with water whilst still providing the same great look as other materials.
