During our initial measure appointment, we talk through the homeowner’s needs and requirements. Once we know what the customer wants from their Kent shutters, we then use our expertise to advise on how to best achieve the perfect bespoke shutters for their home. We come prepared with samples of our entire range of colours, stains and hinges. We even have small example panels of the different ranges we offer so that the customers can get a real feel of the quality we offer.

Customer choosing shutters colours with Shutterly Fabulous

Do I have to pay for a shutter appointment?

No, rest assured our appointments are completely free, with no obligation.

 

Do I get shown shutter samples at the appointment?

Yes, of course. The specialist will show you examples of louvre sizes so that you will be able to visualise the shutters in your home. Here you will be taken through how different louvre sizes will affect privacy and light in the room so that you can make a well-informed decision.

They also come prepared with colour decks and hinge samples. This way your custom shutters are exactly that- custom made. You can use this time to compare the colour samples to your wall colours, window frames or whichever furniture or fitting you wish your bespoke shutters to complement or match.

 

Bespoke shutters

‘The real gem of this company was our experience with the chap who quoted us and fitted them. We went with this company based purely on our trust in him, he doesn’t gloss anything up, he is honest and very knowledgable, passionate about his craft, you can see he knows his stuff and is an expert who guided us every step of the way!’ -Mary, Trustpilot

 

Does an appointment mean I have to buy the shutters?

No, don’t worry it doesn’t! Our shutter specialists are more than happy to have a conversation about the shutters and measure up, but this does not mean that you are then obligated to follow through and buy the shutters. A quote will be sent out to you after the appointment, breaking down the costs for each individual window, and then it’s simply up to you.

 

‘Really pleased with the product and great customer service. Fitters Matt and Marcin are a credit to the business’– Nick, Trustpilot

From small acorns…

Where did it all begin, we hear you ask? Well, like most good ideas it all began over a good glass of red.

Our founders Mark and Murray were wanting shutters for their own house, and at the time, way back in 2002, shutter companies in the UK just didn’t offer the quality or service you’d expect to see when making an investment in shutters for your home.

The companies they did seek quotes from were disorganised, arrived late, and charged call out fees to come and visit – certainly not fabulous. There was a gap in the market for a high quality product, delivered with a passion for customer service – something Mark & Murray felt called to fill.

Shutterly Fabulous was born and the hunt for a factory that was up to our very high standards began.

Launching our website…

Our first website wasn’t near what it is today but we knew from the get go we wanted to have a strong presence online. We had a good friend, Rose Periera, based near the new factory we found in Toronto come up with the logo, and found a local guy based in Lewes, East Sussex to build us a 6 page website. It cost us £500 and was number 1 on Google in the first week it launched! It might not have been anything fancy but that site did us proud!

Our first inquiry came from Latest Homes magazine in Brighton who asked if we wanted to place a ¼ page advert in their magazine which came out Sept 3rd 2002. We were naive and when the phone didn’t ring at 9 O’clock on that Tuesday morning we thought we were doomed! However, luckily enough, someone did call the next day and Murray went to do his first Shutterly Sales appointment on the Friday afternoon and got the sale!

Those shutters are still there to this day in First Avenue in Hove.

 

Stand out jobs over the years…

 

The Old Railway Hotel, Petworth, Sussex

We’ve done quite a few stand out jobs over the years, but the job we are most proud of has to be fitting shutters to The Old Railway Hotel near Arundel, Sussex which features old Pullman railway carriages as their rooms. The owners lovingly restored these old train carriages to their former glory, now as luxury guest suites.

 

The carriages had beautiful walnut wood panelling in them which we matched the shutters to, to look as much a part of the original fittings as we could. The rooms looked fantastic when they were finished and to this day we’ve fitted many a stained wooden shutter, rag rubbed by hand to ensure deep coverage.These shutters were from our Premium Elm range with a grain you can ‘feel’ giving a subtly more rustic design, whereas our Classic Poplar stained shutters are a popular choice for those who prefer smooth to touch louvres as Poplar wood has a tighter grain.

 

The Penthouse, overlooking the River Dee, Chester

We would go almost anywhere to do a job to get the business of the ground. We’d go all over the UK and abroad – one job we even flew out to Marbella to install shutters on a mansion place. No job was too big or too far for Shutterly Fabulous!

In all the installations, we’ve never forgotten the lovely couple who had a gorgeous penthouse overlooking the river in Chester. They came to us needing shutters for quite a few ‘out of the norm’ windows. Some were very tall, arched windows, some were big velux windows, and a set of sliding doors.

Arches, hexagons, circles, triangles, whatever the peculiar shape of a window we can make a shutter to fit it. We love a good challenge, and this was a great installation. Little did we know at the time that that one bathroom photograph would spiral coverage in national magazines…

 

Smallbone Kitchens, London

We’ve loved working with style icons over the years and Kelly Hoppen was a long time partner of Shutterly Fabulous. This was another particularly memorable installation as Kelly was launching a kitchen range with Smallbone Kitchens. We heard through the grapevine that their showroom in Kensington didn’t have window dressing, so we brought our shutter fabulousness to their space.

The look was timeless considering this installation happened back in 2012, that’s the real beauty of shutters. They age gracefully.

Working with designers over the years has given us an edge on colour in the home. Shutterly Fabulous have colour matched thousands of shutters to Farrow & Ball, Dulux Trade and RAL colours, and we also have our very own designer collection which features a spectrum of cotton, taupe and dark grey paints, plus a wide variety of stains.

We’ve caused quite a stir in the shutter-verse over the years…

We’re proud to have been featured in the interior magazines we once only flicked through. Some of our proudest features were in titles like ELLE Decoration, Ideal Home, Metro and many many more…Living Etc May 2016

 

House Beautiful, May 2018

 

Metro, April 2016

 

ELLE Decoration, April 2015

So what’s next for Shutterly Fabulous?

Whatever your space, whatever your style, whatever your budget, our plan is to keep going above and beyond for our customers, providing shutters that can’t be beaten on quality, on service or on value. We’re already following our dreams to bring Shutterly Fabulous’ unrivalled design and fit service to the far corners of the UK having now expanded to Bristol, Dorset, Bath and the M1 corridor. We’re spreading our love for local, independent craftsmanship.

And to mark 16 fabulous years, we’re knocking £100 off every order made during our birthday month of August.

Finally, the time has come to pull the covers off the shiny new look Shutterly Fabulous. It’s been a ton of work but we really think it’s been worth it and more importantly you do too!

 

When Mark and I started the company over 10 years ago, we wanted to create a company with outstanding service, a great quality product that offered real value for money. “Stick to those core values and we’ll be OK!”A lot has changed in those 10 years and we’re a different company than when we started Shutterly Fabulous in a spare room in our house. We’re one the UK’s largest shutter companies, with a unique product that ensures we stand out from the crowd, for all the right reasons.

 

Twelve months ago, we took a step back from the day to day operation and as a result gained a clearer perspective. As such, we felt the message of Shutterly has become a little confused, a little diluted and well, we just weren’t conveying our fabulousness as effectively as we used to!

 

So, we stripped things back, spoke to lots of different experts and found a partner to help us, who was exactly on our wavelength. We’ve not found our groove again with a look and tone of voice that’s very Shutterly Fabulous.

 

Step inside, poke around and look under the bonnet of our slick new site. Book an appointment just for an excuse to see our lovely new Mini’s and vans. You won’t miss them coming down your road – that’s for sure!We truly do believe that ‘No Other Shutters Come Close’.

Emerald Green shutter colour

 

For 2013 Pantone have officially named Emerald Green (code 17-5641 – or DULUX TRADE 02GG 21/542) as their ‘Colour of the Year’. Described as, “Lively. Radiant. Lush.” this sophisticated colour brings the same elegant feeling to the room as is synonymous with Shutterly Fabulous plantation shutters.

 

Emerald Green Shutterly Fabulous

 

With a new season comes Pantone’s recommended colour of the year. 2013 marks the year for emerald green, described as “a lively, radiant, lush. A colour of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance, and harmony” – we certainly agree and have used this colour in several of our recent shutter installations.

 

Emerald green, being such a vibrant colour, can be used in junction with other far more animated colours – fuchsia and mauve. However, the Shutterly Fabulous designers wanted a more classically elegant look. By using subtle shades of teal and clean backdrops the focus of the room can really be pulled towards your plantation shutters.

 

With the ever increasing stress of modern day existence, it is absolutely essential to feel calm and relaxed during your resting hours. By using emerald green against a white wall it provides a colour accent creating a stunning, yet calming atmosphere within the room.

 

The renewing feel of emerald green can have a positive impact on every aspect of your life, so Shutterly Fabulous are fully supporting this seasons choice. Your shutters are part of what ‘makes your house a home’, so custom colours and designs are available for the full Pantone range. Always feel free to contact us with any other requirements as we will try to accommodate for any request.

 

If you wish to order this colour on your shutters please quote code DULUX TRADE 02GG 21/542.
