Popular among architects, unusually shaped windows are a stylish feature of any property. However, they can be tricky to cover effectively and control the amount of light that filters through.
High quality wood is not necessarily cheap, but is a flexible and durable material so is perfect for shutters. It can be crafted to almost any shape you can think of, no matter how out of the ordinary it may seem. There are a number of different window shapes throughout Cheltenham that can be transformed with a made to measure product:
Triangles and Gable Ends
Often found in places like barn conversions and attic studio apartments, these shapes require a made to measure solution. Coverings such as curtains require rails which cannot be attached at the apex, making shutters the perfect alternative.
Squares and Rectangles
Often found throughout the whole house, these can be in living rooms, bays and bedrooms. Popular due to their simplicity, these are the easiest windows to cover.
Arches and portholes
The trickiest windows to cover due to the curved shapes of the frames, you will be hard pressed to find a cheap solution. Tempering the light coming through both arches and portholes can be achieved with the addition of furnishings that have been made to fit the area exactly.
Wardrobes and Room Dividers
More than just for windows, wooden shutter blinds also provide a stylish option for wardrobe doors, such as for under stairs storage. Alternatively, they can act as room dividers, helping keep a living space partitioned and well ventilated.
The shutters we supply are a product of premium quality that can add value to your property. A great feature favoured by estate agents throughout the UK, they add to the re-sale value of your house should you decide to move on.
Shutter blinds also help add kerb appeal, so you’ll be the envy of your neighbours too. Purchasing a property is far from cheap, and is arguably the biggest investment you will ever make. Ensure the value does not decrease by keeping it looking its best, both inside and out.
Available in a range of colour choices, as well as stains that make the most of the wood grain, shutters look beautiful almost anywhere. For making the most of your uniquely shaped windows, the addition of shutters can be a relatively low-cost way to transform your residence. Installing them isn’t just a style choice, it can also make your property a more favourable proposition on the market.
Best for squares and rectangles due to the configuration of the slats, you can also order traditional Venetian blinds through your local Shuttercraft. These are still a premium product, not cheap wooden blinds that some suppliers offer, and are made to measure for the size of the space. With safety features as standard, as well as a number of painted and stained colour options, if you are after the more rustic appeal of wooden window blinds, rather than the contemporary style shutter blinds, Shuttercraft Gloucestershire should still be your first port of call.
It depends on the look you’re trying to achieve! We offer a variety of styles, colours and materials that are made to suit a range of interior designs, whether you are trying to achieve a classic or contemporary look. During our free home surveys, we measure your windows, or doorways, offering our design advice and showing you a number of samples, helping you find the right style for your décor.
