Window Shutters for Executive New Home in North Tyneside
We first met our customer Winnifred whilst we were exhibiting at Living North Live 2017, the North East’s most established interiors spring shopping event which takes place within Newcastle Race Course, Gosforth.
Winnie was looking for a new home and visited the event for ideas and inspiration. After looking at our vast display of shutters, and chatting to both Denise and Andrew, Winnie took away a copy of our brochure to help provide some guidance.
Winnie managed to secure her brand-new home at Moorfields, an executive development of contemporary and stylish homes. The Bellway properties are set within the picturesque environs of West Moor, a former colliery village where renowned engineer George Stephenson started his career. Within a few minutes’ drive is Gosforth Park, home to a nature reserve and a beautiful lake and an abundance of woodland as well as two golf courses and Newcastle Racecourse.
Andrew visited Winnie when the house was nearing completion, guiding her through the options and colours available for her shutters. Her immediate choice was for silent tilt louvres in keeping with the modern interior design she desired. In total, there were 15 windows including Bi-Fold doors in the kitchen which lead out to the garden. Winnie wanted a coloured finish for her shutters, rather than white, so we offered prices from our Bermuda range through to our Sumatra premium hardwood range.
After careful consideration Winnie opted for our Sumatra range, made from the finest quality sustainably sourced and FSC certified White Teak from the Solomon Islands. With a great eye for design and decoration, she chose Stone Grey as her colour finish, along with brushed Nickel hinges and 89mm louvres to complete the look.
To give the family ultimate privacy, a split tilt mechanism was included, meaning that top and bottom sections can be opened and closed independently. This allows the light to flood in, or reduce it when really bright, while giving privacy when needed.
The Bi-fold doors were set on a sliding track system, ideal on wide openings such as patio doors. The panels are hinged together in pairs and bi-fold together allowing you to slide the panels to any position on the track. This opens up the entire room into the garden, making bi-fold a fabulous option on those rare summer days and evenings when you may want to entertain friends and family.
After three days working hard on the fitting, Andrew and Carl completed the installation and the finished home looks spectacular. We wish Winnie and her family all the best in their beautiful new home!
She shared her experience by giving us a Facebook review and here’s what she had to say:
“Very professional & a dedicated team, can’t recommend them enough. 15 windows were completed to the highest standard & with perfection. Extremely satisfied with the quality of the shutters. One happy customer.”
