Venetian Blinds vs Plantation Shutters vs Curtains – What to Choose?


VENETIAN BLINDS – Typically made from aluminium, Venetian blinds have cemented themselves as a mainstay within the industry and can be found in countless homes and workspaces around East Grinstead. We see them often employed in home offices and workshops, as well as in commercial environments. But high quality Venetian blinds can also look great in living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms – anywhere. They’re versatile because they’re easy to clean, offer a great degree of control over light access and privacy, and they’re also available in so many different finishes/styles.


PLANTATION SHUTTERS – Our curtain and carpet fitters most often find plantation shutters employed within East Grinstead clients’ kitchens. However, their distinctive thick/wide shutters, and the seamless way in which they are integrated within existing windows, makes them a great choice for any space. Plantation shutters are much easier to clean than curtains, which is perhaps the reason why you’re more likely to find them in bathrooms and kitchens than bedrooms. Wonder where their name comes from? Well, they were first popularised within the US southern states country mansions, often found on plantations and large masses of land. If you want something both classy and functional, plantation shutters are a great choice.


MADE TO MEASURE CURTAINS – If you want to bring a warm and inviting feel to your space, you can’t beat made to measure curtains. While Venetian blinds and plantation shutters might feel a little bit modern, curtains are timeless. They’re an ideal fit for the cosy rooms in your East Grinstead property; rooms in which you’re looking to relax, like your bedroom or living room. We make our made to measure curtains entirely in-house, using materials from some of the world’s most beloved designers/manufacturers. This means you can pick out a material that will match with your carpets and furniture.
