Kitchen and Dining Room Shutters on Track in Ackworth
After wanting to increase the feeling of security for their new home, we recently installed some track system shutters for a customer in Ackworth, near Pontefract. With large glass windows facing onto the patio, our customer was looking to put a window covering in place that would help the property feel more secure when closed.
Not to be confused with nearby Ackton (where we happen to be based), Ackworth is a village with an extensive history. A place with early origins, the village has seen links with the Wars of the Roses, dissent against Henry VIII, investment by eminent physician John Fothergill, and coal mining.
Although fitting just one shutter set as part of the project, it made a noticeable impact on the look and feel of the dining room / kitchen area. The large glass panels by the patio were effectively covered, and the free floating bi-fold track system allows the shutters to be easily opened/closed for access to the garden as required.
The customer chose to have their shutters on a bi-fold track, with panels hinged together, to fold neatly out of the way, with the free floating option providing more options for the customer. Panels can be moved to either right or left side, allowing ease of access through the patio doors when needed.
Working with our customer at the free consultation, we helped them settle on the Cuba range, our entry level hardwood shutter with genuine wooden panels being coupled with an MDF frame. The lighter panels mean that Cuba is suited to larger windows, and expanses such as patio doors which cannot be covered by some of our other materials.
Based on personal preference, the customer chose Silk White colour with 76mm louvres to provide the light control. This is a new build with an open field aspect, as well as being south facing, so needed to effectively deal with strong sunlight coming through the windows.
On seeing the completed shutter installation, the customer absolutely loved them, and we’re sure they will come back to Shuttercraft West Yorkshire if they are considering more shutters in the future.
