Roots of Design 

decorex 2016: The shutter Shop presents the FULL HEIGHT SUMATRA SHUTTERS

 Every year Decorex incorporates a theme for the show and this year’s theme is ‘The Roots of Design’.

As a family run business, our roots run deep when it comes to interior window shutters.

After setting up The Shutter Shop with two very young children from her home in Hampshire and her first order worth £316, Fiona Kelly - the founding director of The Shutter Shop - with all her hard work has made the company one of the UK’s leading suppliers of shutters to thousands of homes.

Now Fiona Kelly after thirty plus years is sharing the leadership of the company with her son Ben. He has been appointed as director to continue the family business and take the Shutter Shops roots into a new generation.

All of Fiona’s children have worked at the Shutter Shop over the years so they have grown up around her passion. Ben joined in 2015 having learnt the ins and outs of what it takes to take the Shutter Shop to the next 30 years and beyond.

One of Ben's first tasks was to lead The Shutter Shop into a new era with the launch in 2016 of a new website offering a DIY design and buy online service as well as the existing full measure and fit service.

‘Thirty years plus of hard work’, but The Shutter Shop is still ‘Fiona’s baby’ and she will still be part of the team. Fiona has every confidence that her son will continue the success of the family business and looks forward to seeing the new chapter of The Shutter Shops success.

The Shutter Shop welcomes all new and existing clients to follow Ben into this new phase for the business and to meet both Fiona and Ben at 2016’s Decorex.
