Plantation shutters, Bramhall, Cheadle, CheshireToday`s returning customer lives in Bramhall. Having previously fitted plantation shutters in her bathroom and study, we have returned today to fit a second bathroom and two bedrooms.

The customer is delighted! Her decision to choose Silk White for her previous order proved to be the right one and having seen the end result she wanted all subsequent orders to be the same colour. They will always match the decor and she will have a timeless look.

It`s great to have the opportunity to get to know people over a period of time and see how their houses change over the years as we return to fit more blinds and shutters.
There is such a sense of satisfaction in helping people with their home improvements

Plantation shutters – an adaptable solution

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

plantation shuttersSome window openings present a unique problem in terms of window dressing. They may have inwards opening windows, no obvious place to fit rails for a curtain, or, in the case of the window here, present a challenge because of the shape.

The window here presents an awkward challenge. The window is quite obviously shaped but also has opening doors which open outwards onto a terrace. In addition, there are the two side lights with differing drops to the central section.

Windows like this are where shutters come in to their own. A major benefit of installing shutters on a window such as this, is that they enable the client to retain the character and shape of the window. A feature window such as this deserves a special finish. Any other dressing is a compromise. Shutters can be made to the same shape as the window, retaining the feature of the shape.


Don’t be caught out!!

Plantation shutters are the perfect bathroom solution.

Plantation shutters, Manchester, Looking for the authentic look and feel of plantation shutters for your bathroom? There’s nowhere better than Dress My windows for providing a stunning window solution.

Our specially made Java shutters are manufactured from a high grade, hard, lightweight plastic (ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene). This makes them 100% waterproof and therefore ideally suited to rooms that have condensation or humidity issues such as bathrooms, wet rooms and swimming pools.

ABS creates a superior and more robust shutter than the alternative vinyl. They are easily moulded which means that, unlike vinyl shutters, the profiles of the frames are far more refined which gives a higher quality look and finish to the shutter.

Choosing plantation shutters?

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

plantation shutters Choosing the right design to be appropriate to the room is key when purchasing your plantation shutters. Firstly you need to ask yourself the reason for choosing plantation shutters. Do you like the privacy they provide, the insulation properties or the fact that they provide more control over the light allowed to fill a room?

What size louvers do you require? Flat louvers are typically 2.5 3.5 or 4.5 inches in width. Take into consideration the size of the room, the spacing and the light required and of course personal preference.

Choose from full height, half height and shaped shutters to fit unusual shaped windows.
