I want to get plantation shutters fitted to my main sitting room windows - 2 very tall windows.

I have had them before in previous properties but over 12 years ago when there weren't many companies around. I just googled and there are loads of companies now including John Lewis. I really don't know where to start and who to contact, so need advice / recommendations from wise mumsnetters who have bought them recently.

I am looking for a company to make and install them rather than the DIY option as neither DH or I are up to anything more than changing a light bulb.

I obviously want a good price, but most importantly excellent craftsmanship and customer service.

Come and tell me who to call and who to avaoid!!

TIA

We used Shutterly Fabulous and I thought they were great. We have tier on tier and a visible tilt rod and I think they look as good now as when they were installed 4/5 years ago.

I had a good experience with Plantation Shutters, I went to their showroom in Battersea and the girl there was polite and helpful so were the guys who came over to measure and install my shutters. I would happily recommend them.

Good luck! smile

Has anyone used Cool Shutters?

I looked at Shutterly Fabulous after seeing recommendations on here but they don't cover my area. They recommended Cool Shutters as an alternative.

Hi, there have been a number of recent postings which have been removed. I too have been effected and would appreciate if people could get in touch with me. Thanks

Any recent experiences of House of Shutters? I understand they make their shutters in the UK so the delivery time is much shorter (6 weeks). I would be interested to hear if my understanding is correct. Thanks

I also have had a problem with PSD ltd. Please message me with what you guys have done? I have been waiting since April 2014 for any service.
