Our Exclusive Traditional Limed Wax Finish

Creating the popular industrial or rustic feel is something many homeowners and interior designers are trying to achieve this summer. By incorporating furnishings with a beautiful lightly weathered finish, you can achieve this desired look and add a chic urban feel to any interior.

Here at The New England Shutter company, we offer an exclusive traditional limed wax finish that is applied by hand by our talented team of craftsmen.

The traditional method of “Liming” has long been used as a finish on exposed timbers to accentuate details and create a dramatic, contrasting white highlights on open grain woods such as Oak or Ash.

Dating back to the 16th century, “ceruse”, a white lead derivative, was used as a cosmetic by luminaries such as Queen Elizabeth I. Highly toxic on human skin, it transcended to cabinetmakers who used the paste to fill the porous open grain of Oak planks.

Today, Liming Wax is a non-toxic white wax used to create the “cerused” effect on Oak and other interior hardwoods such as Ash. It gives a dramatic grained finish to open grain timbers thus creating an interesting 'limed' or 'patinated' look.

To create this stylish pickled or whitewashed look, the pores of Oak or Ash are first opened with a brass bristle brush. The wax is then wiped into the open grain wood such as Oak or Ash and wiped off the surface to leave a stunning white contrast in the wood grain. This contrasts perfectly highlights the natural lines and patterns of the wood for unique detailing.

Made from solid oak or ash, our interior shutters are made to measure with a choice of 5 different blade widths. So why not take a look at our beautiful shutter range and find a stunning set of traditional limed waxed shutters for your home.

Our Exclusive Fire Retardant Finish

Fire retardant paints are most frequently used in large scale industrial spaces, public buildings and facilities, or on new builds. However, unlike many shutter companies who do not offer fire retardant finishes for furnishings such as shutters, we have the perfect soultion.

If you are looking to comply with safety legislation for your home, café, restaurant, hotel, guesthouse, or office, we can add a layer of fire protection using a Flame Guard Lacquer over your selected shutter finish.

Our transparent fire retardant lacquer is Class 0 rated and provides a high quality durable finish. It forms a protective layer which insulates the surface from heat and oxygen which helps to control the spread of flames and fire. A Certificate of Supply of Fire Paint will provided upon installation of your shutters.

Consequently, you can enjoy the benefit of installing beautifully bespoke shutters into your business space while feeling confident that you’re providing a safe environment for your customers and clients.

So here’s how you can incorporate shutters in your home:

1 - Adding Kerb Appeal

We all try to make a good first impression, so why not do the same with your home? Besides adding a way to control privacy, light and temperature levels in your home, exterior shutters bring charm, character and kerb appeal.

Whether they dress your bedroom windows or become full-height bi-folding or sliding doors, solid wood shutters are a functional and aesthetically pleasing solution for ensuring your home looks great inside and out.
