We have recently installed Full Height indoor window shutters in the Master bedroom and living room of a period property in Tonbridge. Comprising six individual sash windows the two “three part” bay windows look absolutely stunning and have finished off the immaculate redecoration that the owners have undertaken.
Original sash windows and homes of this era are well suited to the simplicity and flexible nature of shutters. Typically tall windows mean that the louvered sections of the shutters have a good number of louvres and allow light to flood the room whilst offering privacy to those rooms otherwise exposed to the street. The light control of shutters gives the owner far more options than alternate window dressings and the style/wow factor of tall window shutters is clear to see in the image below.
Generally face fixed to the original window frame, the shutters enhance the classic wooden sash units. They are typically fitted within the original architraves and the minimal frame will usually sit nicely on the window sills, which tend to be fairly narrow. Where replacement windows have been installed, we can still often fit in this manner and in covering the new UPVC windows, can add a little tradition back into a modernised property.
The shutters installed in this case are Full Height with a mid rail and use a 63mm louver with centre tilt rod control. The sections of louvres above and below the mid rail divide allow for independent operation allowing many options of shade and closure. Dressing such sized windows has many different design options, dependent on your preference, and we can both discuss and demonstrate these at one of our free home design visits.
We are sure you will agree that this design and elegant simplicity is both stylish and beautiful and fully complements the room and its decor.
