It doesn’t matter what shape your windows are – the more interesting the better! Here are some natural wood #PlantationShutters we designed and installed for a #London home.
This week’s blog post showcases the return of our real home recent projects! We featured this one over on the Bromley Blinds Instagram account this week – and it went down a storm, so we thought we’d share it over on our blog too!
The Location | A private home in Dulwich, London SE22.
The Project | The installation of light control solution dual aspect windows in the bedroom – one of which is arched.
The Brief | The intention of this more unusual project was to provide a light control product that would suit both styles of window. The archway featured is a design feature of the property; therefore it was essential that the product selected would not obliterate its unusual shape or block out natural light. Needless to say, curtains were a total no-no.
The Solution | Plantation shutters were designed for the dual aspect windows, which would incorporate a perfect fit product for the archway space. Design trends are dictating a comeback in natural wood and sustainable materials. These shutters feature natural wood finish and feature 60mm louvres. A mid-rail features in the design, meaning that the upper arched section is separated from the lower. This enables a ‘window space’ to create a different look and feel to the plantation shutters when the louvres are opened and those on the lower tier remain shut. The shutters on the ‘straight forward’ sections have bi-folding doors, which minimises the space taken up when they are fully opened.
The majority of sizing up jobs we see are straight ‘up and downs’, or bay windows (which are a traditional favourite for plantation shutter installations as they present otherwise awkward-to-dress 90 degree angles). Truth is, we love a challenge and can make plantation shutters work for you, whatever the size and shape of your windows and/or the number of awkward angles you want to throw at us.
