Just look through the triangle shaped feature window of this Perthshire home and you can see that these homes are deserving of something special as a window treatment. While triangular shutters which are bespoke, custom made window treatments, may sound like an expensive option for your home, most customers are surprised at how cost effective shaped shutters are when compared to curtains.
You can see from this photo that the Glasgow Shutter Company had no easy task in front of them when their Perthshire customer called them for a shutters consultation. The window is very tall, triangle shaped and has the left hand side of the window butting up, tight to the wall. A shaped window like this, while fantastic to look at and undoubtedly creating a unique feature for this home, does present challenges when it comes to making window treatments.
Putting curtains or blinds on a window like this shown is always a compromise. The wonderful feature of triangular plantation shutters is that they are made to fit exactly the shape of the window, therefore help show off the unique attributes and design of these architecturally designed windows.
What is clever about this shutter installation is that they have been designed whereby you can open back the lower, rectangular shaped shutters easily. Most often with specialty shaped shutters, most commonly the louvers are tilted as opposed to opening the panels. This is due to restrictions such as the slope of the ceiling.
This design allows the panels on the lower section to be swung open easily, if desired.
Painted white, these panels are made from poplar hardwood, with 89mm louvers and hidden rods. Have a look at how good custom shutters can look on other shaped windows.
