Cottage window shutter challenges
It’s fair to say that house manufacturing methods have come on a long way in the last 300-400 years!
Today, our fitters can count on any window they work with will be a consistent shape – but that isn’t always the case with cottage windows.
Often, cottage windows are slightly ‘wonky’. While this adds charm and character to your home, it can make measuring for shutters very difficult – and many off-the-shelf shutters simply will not fit.
To add to this challenge, cottage walls are often very thick – and it’s not uncommon for the aperture that the window sits in to be smaller than the window itself.
This is where made-to-measure shutters come into their own.
Our expert fitters have worked with countless period properties around the UK – so we know the unique challenges we might face.
Whether wonky, straight, or deep in a thick window surround – we’ll make sure your shutters look perfect.
