Beauty, Style and Shutters

I have a real soft spot when it comes to shutters.  I enjoy the structure, the elegant framing of the window and then there is that wonderful golden glow when you adjust the louvers just slightly, or the playful shadows that make patterns along the floor. Of course the big draw card for me is that shutters are neat, they don’t hang in different directions and start to sag and look untidy over time.

To achieve this you need the correct specialist and Jossi Design can highly recommend Aesthetic Shutters and Blinds, we have been working with this company for many years and have had perfect installations each and every time:

Decowood Shutters

Aesthetic Shutters and Blinds have a fantastic range to choose from, and when asked for their recommendations we discovered: “Our Decowood shutters are our most popular, cost effective and eco-friendly range of shutters. Suited to all interior design styles, installations and function, they are hardworking and hardwearing and hard to resist”.  Unlike the vinyl and PVC shutters, Decowood Shutters can withstand extreme temperatures which ensures long term performance in all environments.  Aesthetic Shutters and Blinds have a patented polypropylene coating ensuring these shutters are stain, peel, crack and chip resistant. The coating is verified to be environmentally safe, releasing no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) into the air. It contains UV inhibitors that protect the shutters against colour fading and yellowing and they are also resistant to beetles and wood borer. Manufactured and installed to best practice European and American quality standards.  There is a wide choice of 15 different frames, 3 louvre sizes, a standard palette of 5 soft neutral shades in a polypropylene finish, and comes with a 3 year overall warranty on the product.

Security Shutters

American Shutters newly designed security shutters have become a popular option for many of our clients.  These functional beauties are locally manufactured for South African conditions from architectural grade aluminium and powdercoated in satin white or custom colours.  A choice between a master key or multiple keys are included with the strip-proof Italian locks (with double key turn) that operate locking bolts to secure both the top and the bottom of the shutter simultaneously.  Tamperproof powdercoated top and bottom guide system prevent shutters being lifted out of the channels.  They are available in hinged, bifold and bypass.

Security Shutters have been classified as security barriers/ gates by short term insurers.


Normandy Shutters

Normandy Shutters are made from the kiri tree, one of the worlds fastest growing tree species. “This makes it one of those rare environmental solutions that also makes economic sense” (Aesthetic Shutters and Blinds).  It is also a timber with one of the highest strength to weight ratios that resists splitting and warping and has low thermal conductivity meaning it has excellent insulation qualities. Patented wood drying technique dries the wood to emulate the environmental conditions of your location, this reduces post installation shrinking and swelling.  These shutters are also naturally resistant to rotting and decay as well as the threat of beetles or wood borer.   Assembled shutters undergo a meticulous process that includes the application of 5 separate sandings and application of 5 coats of your ideal paint or stain, and with a large palette of natural and solid colours or stains to choose from, as well as custom colours you are certain to be happy with the end result.

“Our attention to detail on every project ensures a smooth, trustworthy and successful outcome for our customers. Exceptional craftsmanship and competitive pricing, combined with expert installations ensures aesthetic quality that lasts” (Aesthetic Shutters and Blinds).

in summary shutters are not only beautiful but also practical, durable and timeless.  They portray an easy elegance and are my first choice in any holiday beach house where the white shutters give the space that wonderful atmosphere of freshness.  A stylish beauty when they are closed, and then creating a wonderful framework for the outdoor scene when you can just stack them open and you have all this space and light coming through into the interior.  I hope you have been inspired.
