Transforming an Old Shop Front into a Contemporary Home

The monochrome trend continues as this old shop front has been transformed into the most stylish of split level private homes.

Working closely with a London designer, we manufactured these stunning 860mm wide Manhattan shutter panels, painted black, with 89mm blades.

A midrail and wider 55mm side stiles were incorporated in to the design to compliment this large contemporary space. A large 100mm deep frame was fitted to the window opening and the panels were individually hung using 45mm supporting T posts. We also integrated a split mechanism on to the bottom section of the panels to allow light and privacy on the mezzanine level leading downstairs.

Spring Interior Trends 2017

It’s officially spring and the perfect time to give your home interior a stylish spring clean. There are lots of ways to give your living space a new lease of life but here are a few of our top tips and tricks to get your home ready for the new season.


GREY IS THE NEW WHITE

Neutral tones always make ideal base tone for any room as they are calming and create a sophisticated setting. This spring, powder greys are in and their versatility provides a timeless backdrop for any traditional or contemporary interior design. While grey works well on walls, flooring and upholstery, adding a set of soft white shutters can help to create a light and airy environment.

NATURAL WOOD

Described as a theme of ‘authenticity’ by retailers, this season’s interior designers are embracing the beauty of natural materials. In particular, natural wood is making a reappearance in our homes and creates an utilitarian and earthy feel. By investing in real wood, you can capture the real beauty of fine materials and prevent your living area from looking cheap.

INSIDE-OUT

Whether it’s bringing the outside in or extending your indoor space out, this season is all about merging the boundaries between your home and the great outdoors. Go small and subtle by investing in small accessories that work both in your home or garden, or open out your living space by installing alternative window or door coverings.

Private Villa in Al-Bidea

Working closely with the Architects at Bneider International (Kuwait), we designed, manufactured and recently installed these stunning Manhattan shutters in a private villa in Kuwait.

Our director visited the site on two occasions owing to a distinct requirement for a specialised design. The shutter panels are an integral part of each window pane. We chose a 64mm blade size to enable the shutters to be fitted within the frame/reveal of the window itself.

We custom stained American Oak to match our client’s existing oak window frames and woodwork. In the bathrooms, a white gloss finish adds a stunning touch to the shutters, using acrylic paint helps to protect the shutters from moisture.

Shutters in Monaco

We met with a London designer whose private client in Monaco had a specific brief for Sliding Track Shutters. The owner requested maximum client privacy in their dining/bar area and beauty spa/salon for their exclusive members-only club. Their vision was to create the appearance that the shutters were floating, albeit suspended on metal arms… a new endeavour for The New England Shutter Company.

Nick flew to Monaco for the day to measure on site. He designed the bespoke aluminium metal arms and supplied tracking to create a truly unique look for our Manhattan style shutters. The large shutters stiles were customised at 42mm x 90mm, so the depth of the stile matched the width of the blades (89mm). In essence, this created a ‘frame’ around the sliding panels. At the request of the client, we customised their paint colour using ‘fire retardant paint’.
