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 shutters 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.
