The UK is privileged to be home to some of the most beautiful period properties in the world. Georgian, Regency, Edwardian and Victorian homes are a staple feature in towns and cities across the country with traditional interior and exterior design accents that are universally desirable.
When it comes to dressing classic bay windows, particularly those that adorn Victorian homes make the right choice tricky. You want something that enhances and improves the aesthetic of your bay window, while at the same time maximising available space.
Something that is not easy to achieve with traditional curtains, but can be pulled off with pinpoint precision with bespoke shutters.
The beauty of bespoke window shutters is the way in which they are designed and manufactured to suit the exact specifications of your bay window. However large, awkward or unusual it may be, shutters can be meticulously made-to-measure for a flawless fit.
Beautifully crafted shutters are designed to fit flush with the panels of the window, so as to occupy almost no physical space whatsoever. This ensures optimum use of the additional space a bay window provides, without becoming intrusive or causing an obstruction.
Shutters are fantastic for taking total control over light absorption and interior privacy. The slats can be adjusted to your liking throughout the day, allowing your interiors to bathe in natural light while preventing passers from seeing inside. Open them fully for a burst of natural light or close the slots for total darkness and privacy, all quick and easy with bespoke shutters.
The same can also be said for ventilation, making shutters a great choice for keeping interior spaces cool during the warmer months of the year. Their insulating properties can boost energy efficiency and keep your home warmer during the winter, having a positive impact on utility bills.
Of course, there is also much to be said for the naturally low-maintenance nature of premium wooden window shutters. A quick wipe is all it takes to keep your bay window shutters in pristine condition, while at the same time keeping allergens under control.
Ordering bespoke bay window shutters means enjoying the freedom to choose from a limitless range of styles, designs and colour options.
