Initial contact was made through our website, our prospective client was looking for a window shutter solution for their large, shaped gable end window for their home in High Wycombe.
Once we had established from the customer’s photos that shutters were feasible, we offered a cost estimate prior to survey. We try to do this to ensure that all of our customers are aware of the costs involved and save them time if this is more than budget allows, especially if the commission is some distance from us.
Once on site it became clear that, whilst doable, this particular window was more of an issue than was obvious from the photos. The concern was that where the angled ceiling had been plastered up to the window, it had been ‘feathered’ creating a curve.
Because shutters, particularly raked or angled shutters, have straight lines, we had to be creative to accommodate the subtle curves. We discussed with the client following the lines of the actual window and then sculpting battens and using caulk to follow the softer exterior lines. The goal was to make the ceiling look like it merged with the shutters.
As this was a shaped window, our Montana hardwood shutters were required. The client opted for a Pure White colour with a 63mm louvre and matching hinges.
Due to the shipping crisis caused by Covid and Brexit the shutters took a little longer than our usual lead time. This had been made clear from the outset and we kept our client fully aware with regular updates.
Installation went to plan and the shutters were fitted as envisaged.
We hope you agree that the end result looks stunning and is functional for the space, allowing access to the window but giving a level of light control and privacy that previous window dressings had not achieved.
We are immensely proud of the fact that our many years of experience gives us the ability to offer innovative solutions such as this and that we can provide a first class finish.
Our mission has always been to offer the very best product and service for our clients. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your project further.
