Shutters were perfect for

Rob’s contemporary home

The old school house in Griffydam, Leicestershire, was in a bit of a state when Rob Jones bought it. Two years and an incredible amount of building work later, the old school house had been transformed into a contemporary family home.



Choosing the right window dressing for his renovation project was an all-important task and Rob felt that shutters tied the building’s traditional exterior to its modern inside.

“Choosing the windows was a really big deal. We wanted the benefits of double glazing, but in a design that suited the style of the building.”

“Shutters somehow manage to be classic and modern at the same time. Given how we wanted the outside to maintain the building’s past but have a contemporary interior, shutters were the perfect choice.”

Rob booked an appointment with Hillarys and his design consultant was able to talk him through all of the options, explaining what would work best in each room.




We thought using Hillarys was great – in fact it was very convenient thanks to the in-home service. Coming at the end of such a long project, we appreciated having a shutters specialist come to us and letting us browse all the styles at home. They were very helpful and gave us all sorts of advice.

“It was a top-notch service from start to finish.”

“People walking past the property have stopped to say how nice the shutters look and guests are always impressed, which is great to hear.”
