ABOUT COUNTRY SHUTTERS
Country shutters has evolved from the architectural practice of Laura Patten Architects based in Farnham, Surrey. With an architectural and interior design back ground, spanning some 20 years, we pride ourselves in providing a professional and bespoke shutter service to all of our customers. We supply all of our clients with illustrative drawings to show how your shutters will look in your home.
We use two factories to manufacture our shutters. Nien Made are the world’s largest manufacturer of plantation shutters and they are based in China. We chose Nien Made as they are the best shutter manufacturer by far and they have won many international awards. We also make our own solid shutters at a joinery workshop based in Hampshire, to the clients specification.
