Plantation shutters installed in and around Manchester
Walkden, within the ‘township’ of Worsley, was once a centre for coal mining and textiles, enjoying its boom years during the industrial revolution. As was typical with cities & towns close to Salford, Walkden grew significantly during those and later years with a large number of terraced Victorian homes built to accommodate the expanding workforce.
Window shutters can be installed on Victorian bay windows, typical of so many properties in Walkden and Worsley.
It’s quite a different workforce that lives in those Victorian style homes in Walkden now, with the town having developed since the mid 20th century to become a sought after location for commuters working in the nearby city of Manchester. What better way to make your house a home you love to return home to after a day’s work than with plantation shutters like those featured here.
Wooden shutters on Victorian bays are a great window treatment as they are custom made to fit exactly the size and design of the window. Curtains on such bays can drown out the beauty and original features of these windows. Plantation shutters on the other hand are installed to retain the architrave and original detailing within the room.
Walkden has many homes close to the road, with commuters to Manchester potentially walking past and ‘having a nose’ into the room. The design of interior shutters shown works very well as you are able to angle the lower louvers for privacy, stopping people peering in.
