I have been a shutter devotee since my first ever visit to London – there is nothing quite like a bit of house snooping in the capital, and spotting those beautiful slats through the windows of the white town houses makes my heart flutter.
If you have been following this blog for any time at all you’ll know about my love for period properties (we have been renovating our Edward home for years) and shutters on a period property is my interior jam.
In fact, I have been eyeing them up for my home for years but didn’t realise just how accessible they were for non-Londoners.
Shutterly Fabulous got in touch with me to see if I would like to talk about their products (errr, yes!) and made me realise that I can actually consider shutters for my own home.
The brand began in Brighton in 2001. Their ethos from day one has been to give customers unrivalled product quality, care, value and expertise in custom-made premier shutters. Their commitment today is stronger than ever, but now it’s open to the whole country. They have design consultants based in London, Manchester and Birmingham, and installation teams fitting for customers nationwide.
This makes me very happy!
There are a few things that really stand out to me. Firstly, they are passionate about the quality of their products. They only use premium-grade timber for and ensure all their employees are experts in their field.
They also pride themselves on their pricing – not only that it is easy to understand but they offer the best value available guaranteeing the lowest UK price for wooden plantation shutters and will match any like-for-like quotation!
So, if you are anything like me you are ready to start creating that Pinterest board and get planning your shutters! Or if you still need a bit more convincing, keep reading…
5 reasons to consider shutters in your home
1.There are so many style choices
Don’t be fooled in to thinking that there is just one style of shutter and that you can only have them if you live in a grand Georgian home in London. There are loads of different styles that would work in almost any style of home or interiors. Shutterly Fabulous offer:
• Plantation window shutters
• Solid panel wood shutters
• Wooden shutters for doors
• Full height
• Tracked door
• Special shapes
And what’s even better is that they offer a colour service meaning that they will colour match a shade of your choice. Hello ombre pink of dreams!
2. They keep the heat in and the noise out
Shutters are brilliant at keeping the noise out so are perfect if you live on a busy road. Also you can close them at night and keep all your heating in your home rather than the all that warm air from the radiator billowing up behind curtains and being lost.
You can position your shutters so prying eyes can’t see within the room but you can still get plenty of light coming in – again win win if you live on a busy road or if you want some privacy in your bathroom and don’t want curtains or blinds which would only get damp.
4. Beautiful from the inside and out
I have already mentioned how beautiful they look from the outside, but it goes to next level on the inside. They have that minimum effort maximum impact thing which I absolutely love. They are simple and unobtrusive to the rest of your decor whilst also bringing a little bit extra to your interiors.
5. They are customisable and bespoke to you
Whilst I am most likely to be a traditional, white plantation shutters type of girl, I love how customisable they are and how they can be completely personalised. Not only can you pick the style and colour, but they can be made to fit bespoke spaces.
What do you think? Would you consider shutters in your home?
