Shutters in Hackney
London Shutters are thrilled to have completed an installation in Hackney, one of Londons most historic areas.
Traditionally Hackney has always been working class, however today it is right next to spots in London with the most new million pound postcodes, read this article in the Independent! It’s also a family area with excellent schools and a great mixture of home styles from loft conversions and warehouses, to traditional Victorian or terraces. There’s a wide appeal for properties here and rightly so we think.
Going green in E5
Being such a classic location made it even better that we were asked to install unique coloured green wooden shutters. The particular property we were working in was beautiful with double height ceilings and larger oversize bay windows. As is almost always the case, the job started with a potential customer completing our online quote and finding us to be one of the cheapest quotes they had received, they called us up and asked for a design consultation, which is of course free! Our designers meet at the property where the shutters are to be installed and discuss options, demonstrate the product and measure the windows accurately for manufacture if you decide to proceed with us.
This particular house had a lot of clean lines and taller windows, a neutral colour scheme with fairly stark white walls in almost every room. The couple who owned the property discussed colour options with our designer and (we think) bravely chose green as the wooden colour of choice! We are always extra pleased when customers go for a bolder colour choice as although we love white shutters, it’s always fun to see something different. We can produce almost any colour desired with our paint match option but of course whites and off-whites will always be most popular.
Fitted by professionals
An experienced and key member of our installation team headed up the job, together with a trainee on hand to hold the ladder when needed! Our company has fantastic staff who we are proud of, from the office team who handle all of the inbound calls and make appointments, the consultants and sales people, right to the finishers who install the magic in your home. We come across a lot of challenges with installations but this job was lovely and straight forward and even Henry The Hoover found it easy cleaning up when the job was complete!
