doors and windows

When you think of doors and windows you do not immediately consider the vast choice of treatments on the market. Quite often we make choices with functionality in mind rather than vanity, however that needn’t be the case any longer. With so many styles and designs available, there is a style for all types of buildings, whether it’s a modern build, a period property or an old converted barn.

If you’re considering giving your home a makeover, take a look at our top picks:  

Frosted window films (The Window Film Company).

WINDOW FILM

If privacy is your first priority, we recommend installing a film from The Window Film Company. The collection of frosted window film is perfect for any rooms at the front of the house, allowing you to wash up or sit in peace and quiet without passers-by looking in. They have a wide range of fun, playful designs available, and due to their translucent nature, they still allow a huge amount of natural light in.

Blue 'tier-on-tier' and 'full height' shutters available from Shutterly Fabulous.

SHUTTERS

Shutters are another great window solution that comprises form and function. Shutterly Fabulous has a sophisticated range to choose from. Unlike curtains, shutters can be adapted to any window size or shape. The collection is available in various shutter styles including Tier-on-Tier, Café Style and Full Height. Shutterly Fabulous also offer a colour matching service, giving the customer complete control over the final choice.

Fully Glazed 10 Lite Knotty Pine Glazed door (B&Q), LPD Vancouver Walnut Internal Pre-Finished door (Building Supplies Online) and Solid Oak Ledge and Braced Rustic Bead and Butt Door (UK Oak Doors).

DOORS

When it comes to interior doors, take into consideration how much light you would like in the room. A door with glass panels would not only allow more light in but also give the impression of a much larger space. Bi-fold doors are also popular to make a room appear larger, perfect for separating a dining room from the open plan kitchen or living room.

The key thing to remember is to find a solution which maximises light, space and keeps everything looking clean and sleek.

Green and navy 'Solid Bedroom Shutters' available from Shutterly Fabulous.
