Maidstone is a large historical town at the heart of the ‘Garden of England’ in Kent. Orchards and Hop gardens surround the nearby villages and there are some must-see heritage sights. This lush landscape is home to Leeds Castle, Mote Park and many more wonderful places to see with things to do.
With a resident population of over 113,137, makes Maidstone a busy little town. Being such a largely populated town, it makes plenty of opportunity for us to work with many different kinds of people from all walks of life with different tastes and styles. The benefits of our interior window shutters are that they are custom made to measure and fit into any style and home.
Here at Plantation Shutters, we service a wide area around greater London. We have had projects stretching to not only in Maidstone, Kent but also Surrey, Sussex, Hertfordshire and of course Central London. With most of the homes in this area having large bay windows, this can make the home owners feel rather exposed to the outside world. So, whether you are looking for something to help you save some vital space, have more control over the natural light in your home or adding some much-needed privacy, our wooden shutters are the perfect solution.
Maidstone is ranked in the top five shopping centres in the south-east of England for shopping yields with more than one million square feet of retail floor space, and they are also in the top 50 in the UK. Raising majestically from the still waters below, surrounded by 500 acres of parkland, gardens and even a maze you will find Leeds Castle. Leeds Castle was coined ‘The Loveliest Castle in the World’ and is the perfect place for a great day out. You can also spend the day at Mote Park with 440 acres of woodlands, a pitch and putt course, skate park, lake and café. If you want to learn more about the history of Maidstone, you can visit Maidstone Museum which has over 660,000 diverse artworks and artefacts from Old Master’s to fossils in a gabled manor house.
Paper mills, stone quarrying, brewing and the cloth industry have all flourished here over the years as well as the paper maker, James Whatman and his son, who invented wove paper in 1740 which was an important development in the history of printing. Modern Maidstone incorporates a number of outlying villages and settlements with the River Medway running through it as well as the Rivers Teise and Beult. Some notable people that were born in Maidstone were footballer and sports broadcaster Andrew Townsend, actress Olivia Lumley and EastEnders star Shaun Williamson.
If you look to our news page, you’ll be able to see endless examples of how we’ve helped many people throughout the Maidstone area as well as far beyond the borough with their windows. Have a look at a few examples of this in our shutter gallery.
