Yes – just the one. No sales person – all our sales consultants fit shutters as well and so you not only get great advise but the production measurements taken by one of our sales consultant/fitters at the same time.
During your home consultation we will show you a selection of shutter materials, operation mechanisms, louvre sizes and colours. Large shutter panels will make it easy for you to see how shutters would look at your windows. During the consultation we will also have images of previous installs so to help you visualise your shutters.
Our shutters are made to measure and not off the shelf or cut to size. We even supply CAD drawings should a client require that – normally this would be for a special shape shutter or shutters for french doors, which require special shaping of the shutter itself.
Our team will take care of the fit. Experienced shutter fitters for your peace of mind.
The office will arrange a date and time for your home consultation. We take a production measure during the consultation – so only one visit is needed.
We will email a quote with each shutter itemised. We won’t sell to you in your home.
Let us know which shutters you would like to go ahead with and we will create an invoice. On receiving a 50% deposit we will place the shutters into production
Once we have sight of the delivery we will book in our fully employed fitters (they may even have been the original consultant that visited) for your install.
You will receive a post fit call from the office just to ensure you were pleased with the process from start to finish.
We love bay window shutters. Our client was looking for internal shutters as their home was street facing. This resulted in issues with privacy at both street level but also from the houses opposite. By installing bay window shutters, we provided the customer with greater control over their privacy and also bounced light back into the room. The shape of splay bay and square bay windows makes them ideal for shutters as we can follow the natural shape of the window.
This beautiful lounge suffered from high solar gain due to the dual aspect windows. These floor to ceiling windows also created issues with privacy as the property was on a high-end development. We fitted these beautiful plantation shutters on the edge of the window recess, which allowed our customer to bi-fold the shutters flat against the wall. Combing large louvers with a silk white painted finish meant light flooded into the room and adding a split in the louvers meant the bottom part of the panel could be adjusted independently to provide privacy.
Our client, an architect, installed this stunning new bathroom and was looking for a contemporary solution for dressing the window. We recommended these waterproof shutters in a pure white finish to match the sanitaryware. These bathroom shutters are manufactured from an ABS composite and combined with marine grade stainless steel hardware to ensure that they were fit for purpose.
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. Just give us a call and we will be more than happy to show you what we delivered for our client.
“Very friendly and efficient, shutters are lovely, installed with no fuss clean and tidy.”

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.
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.

The hottest month being July has an average temperature of 18°C (64°F) while the coldest time of the year falls during January , the average temperature going down to about 5°C (41°F). The city experiences the most amount of rain during the end & start of the year with an average of 80mm of rain experienced during January.

There has been a lot of development along the waterfront as the city topped the list for the most desirable places for property investors in the UK. With an increase in the number of residents, a lot of properties come in demand, most of them being flats. The core residential areas in the city are Chilworth, Highfield, Bassett & Upper Shirley. However, areas like Bitterne Park are comparatively more affordable & offer great value for money. Since it is the one of the greenest cities in the country, there are vast acres of common land & parks which are a source of attraction for the families. The quality of education being offered by the schools is also a plus point in this regard.
The city is famous for its rich history & monumental landmarks including the Tudor House, the Medieval Merchant’s House from the 12th century, the Medieval Walls of Southampton from the 14th century & the Old Town, numerous renowned individuals like William the Conqueror, Henry V, William Shakespeare & Jane Austen, either dwelled or went by, increasing the historical significance of the place. Apart from the historical places, there are many other attractions all around the city. From theatres to museums & ferry terminals, Southampton offers a wide variety of activities too.
