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.

Are you looking for a window treatment that will add style and function to your new build home? Do you want a window covering that will match your modern and minimalist design, as well as provide privacy, light control, and insulation? If so, you might want to consider plantation shutters for new build.

Plantation shutters for new build properties have been gaining popularity in recent years, and for good reason. They are custom-made to fit your windows perfectly, creating a sleek and elegant look that complements any style of home. They also offer maximum light control and privacy, as you can adjust the slats to let in as much or as little light as you want. And they are also great for insulation, as they help keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer.

In this blog post, we will show you how we installed white plantation shutters in a new build home in Ballymena. We will share with you how our design consultant helped our customer choose the best shutters for their needs and preferences, and how our team individually crafted and installed shutters throughout the customer’s home.

Free Expert Advice for Plantation Shutters for New Build Properties

Our customer contacted us to request a free consultation for their new build home in Ballymena. They were looking for a window treatment that would suit their modern and minimalist style, as well as provide privacy, light control, and insulation.

When our design consultant visited their home and measured their windows. They also brought along samples of our different shutter materials, colours, and styles. They explained the benefits and features of each option and helped our customer choose the best one for their needs and preferences.

The customer opted for white composite shutters with a hidden tilt rod, a small metal rod that fits on the back of the shutter on one side of the slats. Using the hidden tilt means that the clean lines of the shutter slats aren’t broken up with a centre tilt bar. This creates a sleek and elegant look that complements the modern design of the home.

Our customer also chose full-height shutters, which cover the entire window from top to bottom. Full height shutters are ideal for large windows, as they provide maximum light control and privacy. They also add a sense of height and spaciousness to the room.

Full Height Shutters Perfectly Installed

Once our customer confirmed their order, we proceeded to manufacture their shutters in our factory in Ballymena. We use high-quality materials and state-of-the-art machinery along with age old skills to ensure that every shutter is made to measure and meets our high standards of craftsmanship.

We then scheduled an installation date with our customer and sent our experienced and friendly installers to their home. They fitted the shutters with precision and care, making sure that they were aligned and adjusted properly. They also cleaned up after themselves and left no mess behind.

Our customer was delighted with the result. They loved how the white plantation shutters brightened up their rooms and added a touch of sophistication. They also appreciated how easy it was to operate the shutters with the hidden tilt rod and how they could adjust the slats to let in as much or as little light as they wanted.

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. Ask your design consultant for an up-to-date lead time estimate.
