Half Height Shutters in Chiswick Period Property Posted on 24 Oct 14:22 , 0 comments
We recently completed an installation of our café style shutters, also known as half height shutters for a beautiful home in Chiswick, West London. Half Height Shutters, which solely cover the lower window panes, are a great way to keep natural light in the room and also gain privacy which was required in these street facing rooms.
Café style shutters are particularly popular in cities & towns and if you live in a home with regular passers-by who can see into your living space, which was the case with this project in Chiswick.
For this family home, the rooms requiring shutters were at the front of the house, the formal living room on the ground floor and the nursery room on the first floor. As a period property with beautiful triple sash windows the clients were keen to enhance the original features of the rooms and our shutters allowed for this, as well as privacy and light control.
Our clients decided upon Café Style shutters in our entry level Antigua mdf shutter product range, with our popular 76mm louvres and with a hidden tilt rod. As the home already had existing black out blinds fitted in the nursery room, we were able to install our shutters in front of these, and due to this additional element of light control provided by the blinds, only half height shutters were required. The finished result was a contemporary and also uncluttered look.
