A client in Tunbridge Wells, Kent was looking for ShuttersUp to install some new plantation shutters to multiple rooms of their home. This included the living room, bathroom and a dressing table area. After one of our surveyors had taken measurements and the shutter design had been manufactured, Ben visited the property to carry out the installation.
All windows in the property were different, with multiple windows in the living room, a traditional bay window in the bathroom and more of a standard rectangular window. All shutters were designed to match in style and appearance, even with the installation taking place on different windows.
We designed full height shutters with a hidden split in all shutters, this allows for the top and bottoms to be adjusted separately without having to have a visible wooden split through the middle of the shutters. This has become a popular design element with those looking for a more minimal and modern shutter appearance. We combined this with hidden tilt rod system, again leaving the shutters looking minimal as no rods are needed on each panel.
The shutters were installed with 4 sided deep plain L frames and beaded stiles, creating a slightly raised edge on the shutters. All shutters were created from Antigua MDF which although is out entry level material, it is hard wearing, has the same general appearance as our hardwood and is a little more resistant to bumps and scratches.
