JUST SHUTTERS Tel: 01225 302599 Web: justshutters.co.uk Beautiful plantation shutters are a striking style statement, while also offering a practical addition to your home. A versatile window covering, shutters can be used on a variety on shapes, angles and arches; they are easy to maintain, can be used even in humid environments and have a timeless elegance that can last a lifetime. Shutters are an ideal way to make a design impact while retaining the character of a window or door. They maximise the light and enhance the feeling of a space; by avoiding heavy and cumbersome fabrics you will open the room up and make it appear larger. Unlike less substantial materials, shutters do not bleach or fade in the sun either, and couple practicality with style like no other product available. These are just some examples of how beautiful plantation shutters can give your home a makeover.
