There are many advantages to living in Berwick-on-Tweed; the proximity
to the Scottish border, the sense of history, the medieval town walls
and Elizabethan ramparts. With beautiful riverside walks, art galleries
and museums, this wonderfully compact town is best appreciated on
foot, and easily accessed by rail for residents and visitors alike.
The one obvious disadvantage to living in north Northumberland is
the weather. Even bright winter days can be bracing to say the least,
and the ever-increasing costs of heating your home can be alarming.
Solutions to cut energy bills, and improve the year-round ambient
temperature of your home have never been more desirable, and for a
border town like Berwick-on-Tweed, plantation shutters
provide a solution high on practicality and good looks. The best
thing about plantation shutters is that they can be tailored to suit
your living space; made to measure to fit the doors and windows in
your home, even non-standard builds are no trouble. With designs ranging
from traditional to contemporary, your shutters will provide a stunning
design focus to your living space. Available in a wide range of colours,
your plantation shutters
can be made to tone in or
contrast with your decorative colour scheme. Shutters
aren't just for winter; bright sunshine in the summer months can sometimes
be as much of a nuisance as piercing winter winds. Instead, you have
the option of keeping rooms cool and dark, making sure there's always
somewhere comfortable to sit on the hottest summer days. And when
the autumn gales do pick up, you'll find that your plantation
insulate you not just from draughts, but from the
worst of the noise. Easy to maintain, plantation shutters
will remove the hassle of taking down and rehanging curtains for cleaning.
A quick wipe will remove dust, and ensure many years of use.
