Shutters as room dividers in a new home in Cheltenham
A couple of months ago, we were tasked with installing shutters to act as room dividers for a family home in Cheltenham. Despite being a newish property, our customer Derek wanted to close part of the open plan layout.
Having checked reviews of our work beforehand, Derek contacted us and book in a free survey to talk about the shutter options that could work in his space. As he wanted the flexibility to close off the kitchen from the dining room, using shutters as folding room dividers seemed like a good solution to explore.
Discussing the options in depth and taking detailed measurements during a no obligation home appointment, we helped Derek settle on the Fiji range, crafted from premium hardwood, and finished with Sea Mist paint.
In order to provide ventilation and maintain air flow through the home, even when shutter panels are closed, 76mm louvres were chosen. Brushed nickel hinges were chosen to complete the look based on personal preference.
The full height style seemed like the best solution for the room divider shutter installation. However, unlike window installations, we only used a 3-sided frame, so that the shutters would not add a trip hazard on the floor.
Being that the shutter was for room divider screens, they needed to bi-fold neatly back against the surrounding wall of the dining room. This makes it nice and simple to gain access to the kitchen when required.
As with every shutter installation we carry out in Gloucestershire, no home is the same. Although not a service we offer at Shuttercraft, we also worked with other local tradesmen to arrange for a small glass panel at the top, above the shutters, in order to let light pass through the home.
Here is what Derek had to say:
“From quotation to finish I found Matt to be very professional, courteous and made the process very simple. He was happy to offer different options and ideas as we were not sure what would work the best. The excellent quality of the product is only matched by the quality of the workmanship. I would certainly recommend Matt the company and the product. A very happy customer.” (5* Star review on Facebook)
