Luxury New Build Home Winchester

If you are looking for high quality, luxury shutters mixed with motorised blinds for your home then please get in touch. Read on for more information and inspiration on how we used full height shutters, duette blinds and remote control blinds in this luxury home.

For this client, who recently bought a large luxury home on a prestigious development in Winchester, we really pushed the boat out. We achieved all of this in lightening quick time and had the shutters and blinds installed within 8 weeks of initial survey. Our brief was to accentuate the large windows and for the bedrooms and cinema room to provide blackout.

During the free home shutter consultation, the client briefed us that they wanted the ability to fold the shutters flat against the wall either side of their windows. The survey highlighted that the window panels themselves were not uniform in size and since we wanted to make sure that we maximised curb appeal we made the individual panels different sizes. This ensured that the wooden shutter panels lined up perfectly with the glazing strips on the glass.The measurements even took into account the difference in plastering on the window reveals and to give the shutters that finished look we chose a frame that had a small architrave and covered any inconsistencies in the plasterwork.

The client had installed an amazing cinema room and of course required total blackout for this. At the same time the client wanted to ensure the kerb appeal for the home so required that we shutter the cinema room as well. Shutters do provide a high level of blackout, but they do bleed some light. For most clients we offer an integrated honeycomb backout blind that works with a specialised shutter frame (by the way this is a rare occurrence as for most clients shutters are more than adequate on their own).

In this instance though the customer was looking for an automated solution and this is what we provided. The remote blinds installed needed no hardwiring as we found a rechargeable solution. By adding side channels to the remote roller blinds, we also ensured there was no light bleed around the edge of the roller.

We also supplied a remote roller blind solution for their daughter’s bedroom and again these where supplied with aluminium side channels fitted with brushes to ensure no light bleed. We installed shutters in front of these blinds as well.

Towards the rear of the house a large kitchen and living area overlook the garden and here privacy was not such an issue. We wanted to provide a light filtering option that would reduce solar glare and gain. For this we selected a duette (honeycombe) blind,as can be seen here, which creates an appealing glow when the sun shines through it. The fabric can be transparent, translucent or blackout and comes in a range of stunning patterns and colours. Different colours can be chosen for different rooms and the fact that the fabric can be chosen with a white outer means you can achieve a uniformity of look from the outside of the property.

Amazing Shutters, Amazing Prices.

An annex to the property was used as an office come games room. One of the windows was circular in shape and so we provided a porthole shutter to make the most of the feature and again it meant the client could control light levels without hiding the architectural design of the window.
