How long have you been looking at having shutters and why?

It was part of the renovation to the house. We bought a house 3 years ago that was 80’s style. We decided as soon as we could afford it, we would update the whole house and make it ultra-modern. To complete the look, we always wanted shutters. We gutted the place two years after purchasing it and shutters were always part of the renovation and the cream on top. We love shutters and always thought it would complete our home.

What was holding you back when it came to purchasing shutters?

We knew getting shutters was going to be expensive but we think shutters are extremely important to the look of a house. A mate said to me that shutters are almost the single most important part of the house, not sure I totally agreed with him at the time of him telling me it – but I think I do now!

Did you get a quote from other suppliers, and why did you go with ShuttersDept?

To be honest we didn’t really go anywhere else or get a quote from anywhere, everyone I had ever spoken to was full of praise for ShuttersDept and it was a recommendation from numerous people – word of mouth is the best advertising and if people have experienced a good service/product it is enough for me to follow suit.

How did you find using ShuttersDept for designing and installing your shutters?

First class – from the start to the end it was seamless, they delivered on what they said they would and kept us updated from start to finish – so yes was a great process and was extremely happy with the service.

How have shutters changed your home and would you recommend ShuttersDept?

We have had a lot of people walk through our house and I would say 90-95% of people comment on the shutters – “wow we love your shutters!” and “your shutters look amazing”. WE couldn’t be happier…..it really did change the whole look of the house….they look even better than I thought they would. We would 100% recommend these shutters to others. A lot of people walk through our home and also comment “I think we need to get shutters for our home” and you couldn’t ask for a better compliment than that – we love them.

How long have you been looking at having shutters and why?

I’ve wanted to get shutters for years to update and renovate our existing home but I’ve never really got around to it. I just like the look and the fact that they last a long time and are easy to clean.

What was holding you back when it came to purchasing shutters?

I made some initial enquiries with some local suppliers but found their prices really expensive and I found it confusing talking to different people about what I needed because I didn’t understand the terminology or how it would look. My husband thought about doing it himself but he never had the time to get around to it.

Did you get a quote from other suppliers, and why did you go with ShuttersDept?

I did but measure and install suppliers were well out of my price range and I wanted to see if there was any cheaper options online. That’s where I found the ShuttersDept and their DIY 'Design your own Shutter' Design Centre where I could type in the dimensions of my multiple windows, get a quote and design a shutter really quickly and easily online. I ordered some samples which arrived a couple of days later and the colours and quality was great so I decided to go ahead with them.

How did you find using ShuttersDept for designing and installing your shutters?

The designing part was really easy once I got a bit of helpunderstand what to measure and how to measure through their videos online. I found it easy enough to do myself and once my hubby checked my measurements I was happy to place my order. Once I placed the order and everything was confirmed, I got my shutters a few weeks later as promised and the install was very straightforward again with the help of the installation videos on the website. 

How have shutters changed your home and would you recommend ShuttersDept?

I love my new shutters, and they were totally worth it! What an amazing process and product! So much easier than anything else I’ve looked at online and I would recommend these guys a thousand times over!

How long have you been looking at having shutters and why?

Finding and agreeing on the right type of window treatment has been a looong discussion that has been going on for years - shutters seemed like an ideal solution - elegant, simple, fitted with house look, able to be fitted to a range of different window styles and sizes, easy to operate and to keep clean.

What was holding you back when it came to purchasing shutters and was it for a renovation or a new build?

Inertia was a big factor and our impression that what we wanted was going to be expensive, it was also going to be a hassle to get quotes as people would have to come and measure and we would want at least two quotes so at least two times to organise for us both to be around - also didn't know how flexible sizes might be and if they would fit all window types.

Did you get a quote from other suppliers, and why did you go with ShuttersDept?

We found the ShuttersDept on the recommendation from a friend and to our surprise it was a lot cheaper than I was expecting. I got a few more quotes and samples from other websites online and thought about checking with local suppliers but it got too hard. In the end the service I was getting from the ShuttersDept was what kept me coming back.

How did you find using ShuttersDept Design Centre for designing your shutters?

Surprisingly easy, after going through a few other websites which were obviously built for an industry expert to complete it was great to go to a website where a total beginner can make a shutter. The wizard gives you recommendations based on your measurements and you get to customise each window individually which made things much easier to understand!

Did you have any issues with installing your DIY shutters?

It was pretty straightforward, the frame was easy to assemble and it came with pre-drilled holes. It all came together easily and quickly and was exactly how we designed it.

How have shutters changed your home and would you recommend ShuttersDept?

Frankly we were surprised at how much they have changed the rooms where they are installed - light control is so easy and they have added a look of elegance and sophistication which was unexpected - have lifted the whole room. The ShuttersDept approach and package was fantastic and so easy to manage - we would happily recommend them to anyone considering window treatments.
