St Albans grey plantation shutters

PROJECT: A Hertfordshire kitchen

A stylish shutter installation in St. Albans

London Shutters are asked to install our finest quality plantation shutters throughout the South East of England. Plantation shutters refer to the style of window covering, utilising slatted or louvred wooden shutters, which can be rotated up and down to allow light in or not. The name is believed to come from the USA way back when the Spanish used them on the plantations which they worked. Nowadays we hang these interior shutters for many customers, including for this couple in lovely St Albans, Hertfordshire!

This modern and outright stylishness was exemplified in the kitchen where we were asked to install these window coverings in January 2014. The kitchen was furnished with dark granite worktops, a floating island with the sink, the walls were crisp white and units were an off white. Our experienced in-house designer attended the initial design consultation and after having seen the kitchen and discussed options with the owners decided to quote on our ultra glossy designer grey plantation shutters as a solution.

The owners were smitten with the high quality finish of these products and pleasantly surprised when our custom quotation hit their inbox a couple of days later. These are our finest quality lacquered shutters and cost a little more than our hardwood ranges, however the price isn’t prohibitive and customers who opt for these get a truly original and unique, well made and hard wearing product. You can see more of our shutter installations around London here.

Louvred solutions for windows and doors

These particular products were installed both on the French Doors leading into the rear garden, as well as the adjoining windows. The clean linear style continued throughout the large kitchen and provides a modern backdrop for this modern interior. The seldom discussed element of security is also taken into account where wooden shutters in particular make for a deterrent against intruders, especially where there are doors on the ground floor as they provide a psychological barrier to entry.

Lacquered, glossy, grey designer plantation shutters really did create a classic finish to this wonderful kitchen and we thank the owners for their enthusiasm and generous tea making and cookie skills for our installer! He was most impressed as were they with the end result.
