Our client's home is street facing and they were having issues with privacy not just at street level but also from the houses across the road. We installed bay window shutters that not only allowed for control of privacy but actually bounced light back into the room. It just seems that bay windows were made for shutters - they make the most of the space and add an elegant touch.
Our customer’s large lounge often got very hot, but they had lovely views on to their garden. We mounted these beautiful all wood White Teak shutters on the edge of the window recess and that meant our client could also bi-fold the shutters flat against the wall freeing up the window totally when needed. By choosing large louvers in conjunction with a split panel, light levels could be controlled whilst still maintaining the view.
Our client, an architect, had an amazing new bathroom installed but was unsure of how to dress the windows. We suggested these stunning grey shutters with a frame that provided an architectural edge to frame on 2 sides and blended with the central shelving unit. We also offer 100% waterproof shutters with marine grade stainless steel hardware.
You may have seen the lovely review and amazing pictures from our Southampton customer on their tier on tier shutters. Having a great canvas always helps when it comes to choosing the type of shutters to install. You can scroll through these images here to get an idea of what tier on tier shutters can do for you home. Please note that why these shutters work so well in this instance because the windows are already very large. That means that the rails (the non moving parts on the bottom and top of a shutter panel) do not take over the window. On shorter windows these rails can dominate the window and look heavy which they don't here. Think about your window and what will work with it - there are other shutter solutions for maximising light and we can help with that.
Our client wanted shutters throughout their home and of course we were happy to help. Their gable end windows at the front and back of the house provided and interesting challenge as there were also inward opening doors below. We provided a stunning solution for the windows that highlighted the architectural features of their home. You can see more images on our website soon when we complete the photoshoot but we do have some snaps we took ourselves. Just give us a call and we will be more than happy to show you what we delivered for our client.
We love this solution to that perenial problem of large bi-fold door expanses creating the world largest television sets, where the goings on of households are visible to neighbours. It's like watching master chef on a very large TV. Now with the simple addition of some tracked bifolding shutters you can decide on the level of privacy you would like. And not just that - but you can ensure that the only thing that gets baked is in the oven and not you, in that lovely kitchen/living extension at the back of the house.

The city of Southampton, a metropolitan city in the Hampshire County, at the west of England, is situated around a major port & is a major tourist destination, facilitating around four million visitors per year. The port was one of the largest until the 1930s with monumental voyage liners like The Queen Mary, being built & departed from here. The famous Titanic, on the appalling day of 10th April 1912, departed from the White Star Dock in this city, embarking on its last & historical voyage. A number of places in the city have now been built as a tribute to the Titanic & serve as a token for the lost inhabitants of Southampton.
Housing stock from the 60's and 70's in Southampton can also benefit from plantation shutters as windows tended to be larger letting in more light but also more heat/cold as well as making privacy a bigger issue. Shutters can really help here - why not ask us to provide more information.
