Solid Panel Shutters in Period Homes

Posted on: September 11th, 2018 | 0 Comments

Whilst the majority of our clients opt for shutters with ‘Slats’ for the obvious benefits of light control and privacy, we also find that  there is a definite need to offer something that presents a more traditional feel… That’s where Solid panels shutters come in.

On sash windows it’s possible to create a Tier on Tier design which enables a great array of different settings for practical living whilst retaining a period style look.

The ones in the pictures are constructed in hardwood Timber (actually…we don’t work with anything less) in a white painted finish which is offset by the considered use of contrasting hinges and knobs in black

We think They’re great!

 



 

 

 

French Door Shutters

Posted on: September 11th, 2018 | 0 Comments

With a great degree of flexibility in design options, French Door Shutters offer multiple options for dressing what is very often the key window within many homes. There are possibilities for bi-folding panels that can be folded completely ‘back to wall’ which offer great space saving within  a room or panels that are installed ‘into the window’ and can be folded back to sit perfectly within the recess. Division of slats top and bottom for multiple settings to reflect light control/ privacy, and an array of colours.

Fitted to perfection… they really do offer the most stylish solution for your French doors

Shutters & Listed building consent

Posted on: March 3rd, 2015 | 0 Comments

We’ve come across many Shutter clients who live in listed buildings and they  will often ask if there are implications to installing our shutters.

The answer is a resounding no… installing shutters have no greater implication than hanging a picture on a wall or putting up a curtain pole. Yes, there are fixings that we need to establish, but this is always done ‘invisibly’ (so that screw holes cant be seen) and always with a sympathetic approach to the setting and with no compromise to any window frames, stonework or fittings within the property

We recently had the experience of dealing with a listed building officer within our Somerset area, who was nervous about granting permission to our client, the owner of a converted 14th Century Mill and adjoining cottage  . Following a site meeting, to explain our approach, to show the frame sections we use and how the panels work …full approval was granted with no reservation and we went on to complete another stunning installation

 

Solid Panel Interior Shutters

Posted on: March 3rd, 2015 | 0 Comments

Whilst the majority of the shutters that we work with are of the Louvre style there is always an option to use SOLID PANEL SHUTTERS as a great alternative.

Constructed in the same hardwood timbers as our classic shutters they are just perfect for clients who wish to retain a traditional feel, within their homes. They work very well indeed as both ‘tier on tier’ or as full height panels and most definitely bring a classic ‘period style’ to  windows within older/listed properties.

Solid Panel Shutters

Posted on: March 19th, 2014 | 0 Comments

We’ve written before about the possibilities for solid panel shutters, but think it’s worth another mention, since  more & more clients are asking us about them (or is it just that more & more clients are finding us.. probably a bit of both)

They look great and give a really ‘trad’ look to an interior. OK, so you can’t adjust slats (there are none), but you can choose from three panel styles and if your preference is for a high degree of blackout…they could be just the answer

These ones are in Elm timber in light oak stain finish.. we love’em!

Compared to others that gave us a quote the shutters represent great value for money. Time was give to explain the options available to us and Duncan even returned for a further site visit to ensure we were happy with the option agreed. We've just recommended them to some friends, not something I do lightly. Andy Troake. Somerset
