Tired of those dusty old curtains hanging on your windows? It might be time to step up your interior design game, and that’s where The Newcastle Shutter Company comes in.

They understand that one size doesn’t fit all, focusing on timeless design over fast fashion, quality over quantity, and a commitment to getting every detail just right.

As a local family-run business covering Newcastle, they bring a level of knowledge, personalisation, and a sense of community that larger brands can’t match. Father and son duo, Kevin and Mathew go that extra mile, from the moment you schedule your free home consultation to the final installation and beyond.

The Newcastle Shutter Company aren’t just about selling shutters; they’re about understanding your unique ideas and needs through clear conversations and creating tailored solutions for your home, style, and budget.

And their reputation does all the talking; with most of their work coming through referrals alongside all their reviews on Google being rated 5-stars, it’s a testament to their commitment to providing that extra personal touch.

From light control and privacy to architectural elegance and energy efficiency, shutters can last a lifetime and offer a world of benefits that go beyond just aesthetics.

We’ve caught up with Mathew, Founder of The Newcastle Shutter Company, to find out everything we need to know about how shutters can transform our interior design.

 

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SHUTTERS

Shutters add light control and privacy

Shutters offer the ultimate control over the amount of natural light in your space. Whether you want to bask in the winter sunshine or create a cosy, dim atmosphere to hide away from the grey and wet days, shutters make it possible. No more compromising between privacy and brightness – you can have both.

Aesthetic enhancement

Shutters aren’t just functional; they’re aesthetic too. From the classic wooden shutters that exude warmth and charm to the sleek, modern designs that offer a contemporary chic look, we’ll find a perfect match for your decor. The beauty of shutters lies in their versatility, allowing them to seamlessly match any interior design theme.

 

Architectural elegance

Installing shutters is like giving your windows a makeover. They have the power to make windows appear larger, more attractive, and draw attention to unique architectural features. At Newcastle Shutter Company we ensure a precise fit and can custom-made shutters, making them blend effortlessly into your room’s design.

A long-term investment

No one wants to keep replacing curtains and blinds. That’s why quality shutters, like we offer at The Newcastle Shutter Company, are built to last a lifetime. They’re robust, low maintenance (a quick dust is only needed), and resistant to wear and tear, saving you both time and money in the long run. Plus, shutters are a timeless trend that will never go out of style.

Energy efficient

Shutters do more than just look pretty; they contribute to your home’s energy efficiency. When closed, they act as insulators, keeping your space cosy in winter and have been proven to reduce heat loss by up to 28% when paired with double glazing. Your energy bills will thank you, and you’ll love the comfortable environment they create.

Versatility

Shutters fit in nearly every décor, be it a contemporary townhouse in Gosforth, a coastal escape in Tynemouth or a suburb in Jesmond. Whether you’re designing a bedroom, living room, kitchen, or bathroom, they bring that extra touch of elegance and style to any type of living space.
