The 12 signs that a street has potential

Facial hair, chrome door furniture and dog walkers are just some of the clues, says Ruth Bloomfield.

Make sure you haven't missed the moment when a street is moving from up and coming to up and come. Giles Barrett, a partner at Knight Frank who is buying a property in Wimbledon, is putting his faith in plantation shutters, the modish way for the affluent middle-classes to dress their windows. 'If a road has no plantation shutters at all, the odds are you've got one heck of a wait before the area becomes up and coming,' he explains. 'Similarly, if every house on a road has plantation shutters, then you've missed the boat. 'The road I have chosen has circa 40 per cent shutter coverage; the remainder is a healthy mix of net and B&Q office blinds.' 

Shutters, such as these from The New England Shutter Company, on some houses in a street are a sign that it's up and coming.

Casting A New Light

Suitable for Windows old and new, choosing the right shutter can enhance the ambience of both a traditional or contemporary home. 

Style Benefits
Faux leather-and suede-covered shutters offer a more tactile aesthetic. The New England Shutter Company offers the option of an attractive atrificial-leather finish. This broad range of coloured and textured nylon polyester fibre products from American supplier Majilite® offer exceptional performace; as these are UV-stable, they will not fade in sunlight. Besides the company's measuring and fitting service, they also offer a home-design service and will bring samples and hardware to be viewed in situ. 

Quality & Finish
A quality, sustainable hardwood shutter is a premium product. "We use wood grown in New England, as the stable climate there means that trees grow slowly, very tall and straight. The wood fibres in the grain are tight and close together making it very strong," says Harriet Shackleton from The New England Shutter Company. 

Wood is not by it's nature waterproof; for kittchens and bathrooms, The New England Shutter Company recommends teak and western red cedar.

Shutter Solutions.

A practical option for any home, external shutters filter light and increase privacy. Follow these tips from Nick Garratt, director of The New England Shutter Company, to ensure that you choose the right style for your room.

  • Consider the climate and how your shutters will weather in those conditions. I recommend using Western Red Cedar as its a material that improves with age.
  • Our most popular style is 'Soho'. Its modern, architectural aesthetic is really on-trend.
  • Different window frames suit different shutters. Café style shutters usually cover the lower half of the window and provide privacy while allowing light in to the room, and full height shutters are a good option for sash windows and french doors. Victorian bay windows will benefit from tier on tier versions because this type allow the top and bottom panels to be opened independently.

Expert Advice
"Manhattan shutters allow adjustable light without obscuring decorative period details." Nick Garratt, The New England Shutter Company.

Letting in the Light
Full height shutters are an excellent choice for tall windows, especially if the priorities are allowing in the sunshine while having the option to tilt the slats for shade, or to close them for privacy.
