We recently designed and supplied shutters at a property near Ascot, Berkshire, commissioned by a private property developer.
When designing shutters for all of the windows in a property it is vital that they look as good from inside the rooms as they do when looking at the property from the outside. Ideally the shutters should appear uniform across the windows – and that includes the bathrooms and kitchens.
Bathroom windows can potentially be one of the hardest windows to dress, as the risk of water splash, high humidity and poor ventilation all need to be considered. The window dressing needs to be able to cope with all of these conditions without deterioration, whilst also fitting with modern or traditional decor. Quite a challenge!
Traditional solutions such as venetian blinds tend to gather dust as they collect moisture, making them very difficult to clean, so for the bathrooms and kitchen in this property we recommended our specialist waterproof shutters, featuring stainless steel hinges and fixtures – these were then designed to match the full height shutters installed in the rest of the property. We chose one our most popular white shades, Silk White, with 89mm width louvres to allow as much light into the bathrooms as possible, without compromising privacy.
Manufactured from the very best ABS (Actylonitrile Butadiene Styrener – a robust waterproof polymer) the quality is such that it is difficult to see that they are made from a plastic material. With stunning good looks, easy cleaning and ultimate control over privacy and light these shutters are 100% waterproof, so warping or twisting can be forgotten!
“As a developer, it is always about the fine attention to detail. We have worked with Eden House for many years and always trust their judgement, but I have to say that this shutter scheme, particularly in the high humidity rooms, is incredibly well executed. When viewed from outside the shutters add considerably to the overall impression of the property, whilst the usability for the eventual owners is definitely enhanced by the waterproof material. Visually it looks a treat, with all of the practicality and longevity any homeowner could wish for.”
