Contemporary Manhattan Shutters for Bay Window

We fitted these Manhattan shutters in a lovely kitchen in Fulham, London. On this bay window we included a split mechanism, to enable the top and bottom blades to open independently. This offers a great combination of privacy and light, and in this basement kitchen reflects plenty of light back into the room.
