Special shape shutters in Dewsbury
We recently installed a number of wooden window shutters in a home in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. The customer wanted shutters to complement the tricky window shape, but also wanted to be able to fully open the middle section in order to have a clear view.
Based in a gable end of the property, the windows were designed to make the most of the light, with tall glass panels reaching right up into the eaves. As the balcony was on the floor below, the window did not open, although it was the height of a door, meaning that access was not required.
During the initial free survey, we provided the customer with detailed information about the choices of shutters available to them. Due to the angled shape of the window, it was cleared that special shape shutters would be needed.
Using our ‘no hard sell’ approach, we advised on the styles and materials which would be suitable for their home, as well as matching their taste in interior design and requirements.
Based on the customer’s personal preference, they chose Pure White as the colour, and 64mm louvres, which was to ensure the right balance of light and privacy through the window.
In order to meet the customer’s needs, it was decided on a special shape at the top of the window, with a horizontal t-post included in the lower half of the window. This addition allows the middle section to be open fully to enjoy the view, while ensuring stability.
Due to the shape required, and the size of the opening, the customer settled on the hardwood Fiji range. Delicately crafted from premium hardwood, Fiji is perfect for uniquely shaped windows due to the properties and qualities of the materials used.
For operation, the customer decided on the silent tilt option, keeping the functionality and louvre control, without a visible tilt rod adding clutter.
This is what our customer had to say: “Shutters look fantastic thank you David, really pleased with them and will definitely recommend you. In fact, one of my colleagues was asking only the other day”.
