Shutters in Kent
The Shutter Studio in Kent
The Shutter Studio works throughout Kent, installing plantation shutters across the county from our warehouse in Sevenoaks. We’ve been installing shutters throughout Kent since before we were truly a company, with customers throughout Kent having excellent quality shutters in their home. We have surveyors and installers living around the area so that we’re never too far away from any of our customers, with both a showroom and a warehouse within the county as well as a secondary base in Surrey.
Why are we so popular in Kent? Mostly because we’re good at what we do, but also because shutters are the perfect window treatment for the unpredictable weather of the south east. Shutters keep you insulated in the winter while allowing lots of light in during the brighter days of the year.
Whether you’re in a built up area or surrounded by fields there will be a perfect shutter style to suit your needs and budget, just let our trained surveyors take a look and talk you through your styles and options. Our surveyors are trained to listen and advise rather than sell. If your windows are better suited to blinds, or if you have concerns about shutters, they can advise you on styles and issues that may occur rather than pushing you in one direction or the other.
Popular shutter styles in Kent
Although it’s difficult to pinpoint a particular trend or style of shutter due to the size of the county, homeowners in Kent often take advantage of the subtle variations on traditional shutters offered by The Shutter Studio. We offer a number of customisation options such as the hinge colour, colour matching and a range of frame styles that allow our Kent customers to be very specific about matching the style of their house.
Combined window furnishings are also a popular option in this region, such as cafe style shutters combined with a patterned or textured roman blind in a living room bay or full height shutters with heavy curtains in a bedroom.
Plantation shutters in Kent
We offer plantation shutters in four different materials, with our MDF and basswood shutters being the most popular choices. Both are hardwearing shutter materials, the difference between them coming down to the weight, finish, and choice of colours. If we think that one or the other is more suitable for your home our surveyor would discuss this with you on site, but otherwise this is a decision that comes down to personal preference and how you see yourself using your shutters.
If you’re still unsure at the end of our visit, or just like having options, our team can send you quotes for a number of preferred styles and options. All of our surveyors carry samples and photos so you can see our range in the comfort of your own home, but you can also see full sized samples at our Beckenham showroom.
Our showroom team are also able to go through your quote with you, either in person or over the phone, so you can be sure that you’re ordering exactly what you’re picturing in your mind before you go ahead. So if you’re looking to have plantation shutters installed in your home, you can trust The Shutter Studio team to respond to your needs and look after you throughout the process.
Blinds in Kent
Although The Shutter Studio specialises in plantation shutters we also measure and install a variety of blinds, including motorised roller blinds and vertical blinds. All of our blind styles are online and our surveyors carry a range of samples with them wherever they go, so if you’re undecided between wooden shutters and blinds we can help you with this as well. We’ve worked hard to expand our blind range over time so we can offer as many options to our clients as possible, so if it’s the small details you care about it’s the small details we can help with.
Carpentry in Kent
In addition to blinds and shutters we also work with homeowners and designers to create bespoke carpentry solutions that fit perfectly within the existing decor of a home. The Shutter Studio team consists of a number of trained carpenters that are used to working outside of the box to create bespoke products tailored to your needs. From Margate to the Isle of Sheppey we have been the length and breadth of the county fitting wardrobes, bookshelves and window seats into boats, student flats and houses of every shape and size.
Whether you have a very specific idea of what you want for your home or just a rough idea and a budget, we can explore all the options and possibilities with you until we find the perfect solution.
After choosing and ordering your shutters the next contact you have from The Shutter Studio team will be to tell you when we’re expecting your shutters to be delivered to our Sevenoaks warehouse. Once we have carried out a quality control inspection we will contact you to organise your installation.
We aim to install your shutters the week after we take delivery of them and to complete all of our shutter installations within a day, unless otherwise arranged. Most importantly, from our arrival to when we leave our fitters are respectful of your home whilst fitting. From dust sheets to shoe covers we keep your home tidy so we can leave you with the shutters and blinds you imagined.
All of our shutters are guaranteed for five years, including for colour fastness and workmanship. On the rare occasion there is a problem we’re only a phone call away and do our best to sort out any issues on the day within a week of it being logged. For more complicated problems or alterations, the opening of The Carpentry Studio workshops means we’re now able to sort most problems quickly and efficiently within the county without involving our supplier.
