The plantation shutters finally arrived and wow, you don't realise how private some rooms in your house aren't until you have proper window coverings. Definitely worth the 4 year wait (we couldn't decide between shutters, curtains, Romans...), love them! The shutters went on the 3 bedrooms and the living room.
Looks good, doesn't it? Let's just say the words you don't want to hear from the installer are "Excuse, me, there's a problem". Such a WTF moment. Of course of all the windows I wanted to get the shutters on, it was the living room - we've been living crack den style with this sheet covering the window for what seems like forever - so of course that was the one they stuffed up the measurements of. I guess after 4 years another few weeks or months won't hurt, but still we were so close! Could have been finished!
