Full Height Shutters in Ouston
We recently fitted a number of window shutters for a couple in Ouston, Chester-le-Street. When we first met Fiona in October last year she was busy updating her home. An extension to the front of the house had recently been added to this great family home, to create more space.
Fiona and Darren were planning to decorate throughout, creating a clean, modern look with neutral colours. As they had already decided that window shutters were on their wish list, curtains were no longer appealing. Choosing to invest in shutters would update the look of their home, whilst adding value to their property.
Our initial survey was carried out by Andrew, which included detailed measurements for shutters, to go in a lounge bay window as well as for two bedrooms. Working with the couple, we helped them choose the shutters that suited their needs, as well as matching their design ideas.
Fiona chose Pure White for the finish, as it complemented her new décor perfectly. Silent tilt louvres were also chosen, giving the modern look that she required.
64mm louvres were chosen to suit the height of the window and give great privacy when needed. The couple chose from our Antigua range for their shutters, as the size of windows and colour choice could be supplied in this MDF product.
Based on conversations with Andrew, Fiona also opted for the split tilt operation on the shutter louvres. This means that they could close the bottom louvres, gaining privacy, but at the same time keeping the top louvres open to allow the light to flood in. Split tilt is also a great option if you need to block out the evening sun, as you can close the top louvres, but allow light into the room by leaving the louvres open at the bottom of the panel.
After we fitted shutters to the initial three windows, Fiona and Darren were so happy that they asked Andrew if he would also measure up for their porch, landing and another bedroom.
We returned in February to fit the additional shutters and Fiona kindly gave us another glowing review.
This is what she had to say: “Would like to say a big thank you to Denise and Andrew. Would highly recommend them if you are looking to have shutters fitted, from the initial estimation, measuring, fitting and after care, they have been outstanding. Thank you.”
