Victorian Panel Moulded Shutters, Refurbishment, Repair or Replacing
At Barnsbury Joinery when we talk about ‘solid Victorian wood shutters’ we are referring to he design of the panels which instead of having adjustable blades within the structure of the panels, have a solid section. This design of panels was very popular in homes built in the UK especially during the Victorian and Edwardian era. You may have seen these panels installed in homes where there are large sash windows (the top and bottom sections slide up and down, bypassing each other). These windows often had box sections at the side where the solid shutter panels would fold into during the day when not being used. Solid shutters are purchased by customers looking to restore their period homes to their former glory with these traditional shutters.
We have designed 2 types of solid option to choose from, attempting to create as accurately as possible a design that is true to the style installed in homes in the 19th and early 20th century. The raised design speaks for itself. This sees the middle section being more decorative with a raised, moulded section. This was often installed in more expensive homes because it cost more money to manufacture and therefore was seen as a sign of wealth. Having the panels with the raised design (where the rear of the panels also featured the raised section) was seen as a way of showing your neighbours that you were financially well off!
The alternative is the simpler shaker design. This has the middle section being a flat, solid section. It is stylish and well suited to more contemporary homes and looks great in a cool off white paint. Our joiners and carpenters who specialise in the manufacturing and installation of Victorian panel moulded shutters will make a site visit and offer expert advice as to which design options work best for your home.
