Achieve The Ultimate Heritage Aesthetic With These Affordable Window Shutters

24th September, 2020

Elevate  your interiors with these fully customisable, heritage style louvres from The Shutters Department!

Home decoration trends come and go, but if there is one interior staple that has never undergone a revival, it’s the humble window shutter. That’s because… it never went out of style!

This clean and classic curtain alternative adds a heritage touch to any space, but are not always within everyone’s budget constraints. Enter The Shutters Department – the window furnishings retailer for the people! Constructed from PVC, their economical range of timber-look shutters come in three shades of white, with operable louvres.

And to top it all off, every piece is made-to-order! The company’s customisation service offers free online quotes and a simple design process, plus recommended templates for those less confident in designing their own configuration.

All shutters from The Shutters Department ship direct from the manufacturer, and come with easy DIY install instructions. So if you’re sick of the same view from your #workingfromhome station (we feel you, fellow Victorians), why not elevate your outlook, with a classic window treatment that will stand the test of time? And to make it even sweeter, take 10% off if you order before October 11th!

Keen to know more? Take a look online here. Order by October 11th for 10% off, and to receive your shutters before Christmas!
