Find your perfect new blinds or shutters

Whether you are looking for new blinds or shutters for any room in your home, Village Blinds & Shutters are here to help make the process convenient for you.

One of the most rewarding aspects of our work at Village Blinds and Shutters is to see how our products can transform a home and make our customers happy. In this blog post, we want to share with you one of our recent projects in Carrickfergus, where we measured, made, and installed some stunning painted plantation shutters to match the customer’s exacting brief.

Creating Drama and Accentuating Decor with Painted Plantation Shutters

Our customers wanted to create a dramatic and stylish look for their home, and they had a clear vision of what they wanted: charcoal-painted plantation shutters. They loved the contrast between the dark shutters and the light walls, and how the shutters complemented their furniture and accessories.

Normally, during a home appointment, our design consultants would caution against dark-painted shutters, as they can make a room look dark and gloomy. But in this case, we agreed with the customer that they had made the right choice. They had plenty of natural light coming in through their large windows, and they had chosen bright colours and patterns for their cushions, rugs, and curtains. The dark shutters added a touch of elegance and sophistication to their rooms, without making them feel too dark or oppressive.

Custom-Made Charcoal Painted Plantation Shutters

We measured the windows carefully and made the full height plantation shutters to fit perfectly. We used high-quality materials and paints to ensure durability and beauty. We matched the paint finish to the RAL number from other pieces of furniture to create a harmonious look.

When considering painted plantation shutters, it’s important to know that when matching a RAL number paint code, there will be subtle differences in tone or sheen depending on the base material it’s being matched to. That being said, our paint finishes are always applied with the greatest of care for the very best results. Our design consultant carefully talked through the paint finish options with the customer to ensure they would be happy with the end results.

We installed the full height shutters throughout the home, except for one bathroom where there was not enough space for them. For that room, we suggested a stylish hand-made Roman blind instead. The customer agreed, and we made the blind using a fabric that closely matched the tone of the shutters. Just like our painted plantation shutters, our Roman blinds are made right here in our Co Antrim-based factory, where we pair time-tested skills and cutting-edge technology to produce high-quality products. The result was a consistent and elegant look for the whole home.

The customer was delighted with the final result. They said that the painted plantation shutters had transformed their home and made it look more modern and chic. They also said that the shutters were easy to operate and maintain and that they provided excellent insulation and privacy.

Village Blinds and Shutters Home Appointments FAQ

Our design consultant will arrive at the agreed time slot and ask you questions about your requirements and style preferences to help understand your project. They will measure your windows and discuss fabric/material options and provide you with a quotation based on your choices.

Depending on your requirements, a home appointment can take from 30 minutes for 1-10 blinds, to 60 minutes for 10+ blinds or window shutters. Our design consultant will work at your pace and we’re happy to stay longer to talk through your options and provide advice if you’d like.

We would ask ahead of the home appointment that you have arranged clear access to the window areas being measured and that any obstructing furniture or breakables near the windows are removed.

Once the windows are in, plastering has been completed and any tiling or skirting or architrave that might be close to the blinds has been installed. This will allow our design consultant to take accurate measurements.

Usually, our design consultant will be able to provide you with your quotation during your appointment.  Sometimes for some very bespoke projects pricing can take a little longer. If you haven’t heard back within 24 hours, give them a call or email and they will keep you updated.

Our production team work tirelessly to craft every single blind and shutter for our customers individually. Lead in times can vary depending on factors such as material availability and our production schedule. That being said we will always work to get your order as quickly as possible.
