Shutters installed throughout this lovely home

Our experts recently undertook an installation in this lovely London home, and the client's design choices really show how small design differences can be a smart way to ensure the shutters are suited for each room. 

There are many options available in shutter designs and it can feel like a difficult choice when choosing which is best throughout the home, especially when each room has a slightly different décor. So to achieve the best option for each space whilst maintaining cohesiveness room by room, many choose slight variations for each window as has been done here. 

Despite some details including shutter material and colour shades varying, some design options have been used consistently across all of the shutters. 

All of the styles installed throughout the property cover the full height of the window with 76mm selected as the favoured slat size. This is the middle size of our standard slat sizes so is a great mid-point making for great distribution across the slats and light control through the shutters.

The tilt mechanism for the slats is hidden which sees an additional mechanism built into the panel so that slats can be controlled by simply pushing one of the slats in the section.

Whilst different white tones have been selected as we see below, all fixings attached are white to match each shutter finish. It is very common for fixing colours to be chosen to match the overall finish to allow them to blend seamlessly.

 

Our entry level Craftwood MDF material has been used for the shutters in this bedroom. Craftwood is a brilliant choice for children’s bedrooms because of the robust and durable nature of the material. This makes the shutters less exposed to accidental damage, and with all the fun and play time to be had, concern about the shutters doesn’t need to be on anyone’s mind.

Finished in a silk white, this paint colour is one of the two most popular colours in our range – providing a depth and warmth to the white in the room.

Three panels make up the configuration on this window with T-Posts hidden behind and added for structural support. The full height panels have a hidden break which allows for slats in each of the single panels to be moved in two parts but without a visible line to do so.

 

MDF has also been selected as the material choice in the bathroom.

We usually recommend our waterproof range for bathroom shutters for protection against water and steam that may be present in the room. However, in instances where clients decide that they would prefer to go for an alternative, Craftwood MDF is the best choice thanks to its polypropylene coating making for a better resistance to moisture than the wooden alternatives.

These shutters have no breaks within the panels, hidden or visible, so the slats move as one combined unit within the panel.

The warmth of a silk white finish adds a slight difference in tone within the room allowing the shutters to stand out as an individual feature, simultaneously blending with the space but drawing the eye to this luxury dressing.

 

The kitchen shutters are unique against the other shutters that have been installed in the house due to the selected material. Pearlwood is a stunning full wood material choice and has the benefit of a lighter weight than our other materials.

Painted in a pure white finish, the shutters have a stunning stark tone which matches wonderfully with the overall kitchen finish.

As the shutters are covering French Doors, the panels are particularly tall and therefore require divider rails to be included. This break in the panel allows the shutters to be built taller whilst still being structurally strong and also allows the slats to be controlled in each section.

We really think that the shutters have boosted this client’s home to a new level, making for the perfect finish! If you’re looking to transform your home with shutters too, then give the team a call on 020 8871 9222 to book in for a measure appointment today.

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.
