Read Customer Plantation Shutters Reviews

I never thought that I would ever write about a product, let alone plantation shutters reviews, but having lived in our house for many years, we decided that it was time to do some modernising. We have had various different curtains hiding our beautiful windows, either gathering dust or in recent years, with the trend for extra long ones, providing cosy beds for our cats and hiding places for the kids. Quite honestly – I was fed up with washing them.

Plantation Shutters Reviews

We decided to investigate alternatives and after looking through many magazines and watching interior design shows on television, we turned our thoughts towards plantation shutters. At first we thought that we would just have some installed in our living room. After many calls and emails, found ourselves extremely confused as to which style to buy and who to trust to fit them. We also didn’t like the idea of measuring for them ourselves as, being a bay window, we wouldn’t know where to begin. We started to look through plantation shutters reviews and discovered S:CRAFT.

The website was extremely easy to use and we were soon able to see exactly what our shutters would look like. We also discovered that we could put special shutters in our kitchen and bathroom, from the Java range, and that shutters would also be suitable for our French doors – a great feature in the kitchen/breakfast room. We also realised from reading plantation shutters reviews, the importance of buying quality shutters from a company that could come to our home, show us samples, measure up and then make our shutters specifically for our windows.

Living in the Brighton area, we were very pleased to find that we had two S:CRAFT stockists virtually on our doorstep and were also impressed to see that S:CRAFT has stockists nationwide. We made the call and arranged a time that was convenient to us for a visit to discuss our needs. The representative arrived on time and was very friendly. In no way did we feel that he was trying to sell us anything – in fact, we got the impression that S:CRAFT shutters were so good that they practically sold themselves; all we had to do was to decide what we wanted and where.

Price was a major consideration for us, but we did want shutters that would last for a very long time, as this was to be a one-off solution to having stunning window treatments that would be easy to keep clean and maintain, not date in any way and would come with a comprehensive guarantee. We also wanted to be sure of a good after sales service. When the pricing structure was explained to us, it was – indeed as we had read in several plantation shutters reviews- far more affordable than we had imagined, so we discussed our other windows and doors with the representative too.

After looking at colour charts and realising the versatility of plantation shutters, we were equally pleased to know that S:CRAFT only uses wood from sustainable sources. It was also explained to us that the wood is stored for six months before being used, to allow for natural settlement; it is then kiln dried, ensuring resistance to warping and twisting. This greatly put our minds at rest and is another reason why we felt that we must write some plantation shutters reviews about S:CRAFT as they really care, not just about their customers, but also about the environment.

We had our bay window shutters made and fitted first and they are stunning. The large bay is now revealed in all its glory, regardless of whether it is day or night. We also have complete control over our privacy and the amount of light that comes into the room, as the louvres can be opened fully, partially or be completely closed. Needless to say, we are now waiting with great excitement for our S:CRAFT stockist to come to fit the shutters in the rest of the house. Yes – we have decided to have them installed in every room and can’t wait. It is going to be wonderful during the summer months, to be able to open windows and doors wide without having to worry about nasty insects coming in.

My daughter, who lives in London, has now contacted an S:CRAFT stockist near to her, as has my friend who lives in Scotland. Both have seen just how beautiful ours is and have decided they must have similar in their houses. We are so impressed with the professionalism, courtesy and friendliness of both the S:CRAFT representative and their fitters that we cannot recommend them highly enough and writing some plantation shutters reviews has been a pleasure.
