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.

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!

Stylish Cornwall Shutters with rebated slats

These shutters, were installed to a holiday apartment in St Ives, Cornwall.

The client was anxious to provide a good degree of blackout from the adjacent street lights at night, whilst also providing a stylish solution and sound insulation from noisy revelers passing by at night… the apartment is right next to a busy pavement.

The shutters delivered on all fronts… looking great but functioning very well on all practical levels too. Flat rebated slats give an additional level of blackout to the room, but also give a very contemporary aesthetic

Their approach from the outset was in marked contrast. We were immediately taken by Duncan & Gules on a personal level and their design expertise, quality of their shutters and passion for their product marked them out from the outset. David & Sarah Murnaghan. Bristol
