Shutters in Cornwall
Every once in a while a shutter project comes along that gives us the chance to really stretch ourselves on the design front and this property on a peninsula overlooking the Atlantic ocean is a grand example.

French Door Shutters in Bristol
One of the best settings for the use of shutters is over french doors. In this Bristol bedroom, we specified 89mm slats in hardwood elm to show a little of the timber grain and matched the colour to the room decor.

The client has also created and used to great effect, the super stylish window boxes and planters to enhance an already elegant facade.
Period Style ‘Solid Panel’ Shutters.
Whilst most clients opt for louvered shutters, ‘solid panel’ shutters definitely have their place in recreating an authentic Georgian feel to a room. As the ones in the photos show, having them as a Tier on Tier configuration, not only delivers on the ‘style front’ but also gives many options for light control too.
