In the Tunbridge Wells area, in particular, our valued customers have benefited from our exceptional knowledge and understanding of the the city and the surrounding suburbs, including the history, topography, architectural influences, as well as the environmental and economic climate.
Royal Tunbridge Wells which was previously known as just Tunbridge Wells, sits on the western border of Kent and East Sussex and upon the northern edge of the High Weald with its unique sandstone geology. During the Restoration the town came into its own as a spa and then under the influence of the celebrated fashionista and dandy, Beau Nash and alluring attractions such as the mineral rich, chalybeate spring and the Pantiles, an attractive Georgian colonnade formerly known as The Walks, made the town extremely popular.
The Rusthall Manor Act signed in 1739 ensured that the Walks, the Wells and the Dipper’s Hall would be freely accessible to the public and also prevented the construction of any more buildings on Tunbridge Wells Common. Therefore most of the buildings in the main town centre are listed buildings including most of the Pantiles.
Most of the historic buildings in Royal Tunbridge Wells still maintain their original features including the Georgian interiors with internal shutters that fold back as leaves into architraves either side of the panelled window surround. The main windows would have decorative hinges and in the service rooms the shutters were planer with strap hinges.
Many shutters have since been ripped out, boxed or fixed permanently into the frames, however, more recently, people are reinstalling interior shutters into their homes as people are becoming increasingly aware of the true benefits of these versatile window fixtures.
Like all our loyal customers in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Oh So Shutters are highly influenced by timeless style and elegance and will strive to enhance and and improve your interior spaces, offering professional advice and consideration to your personal, aesthetic and practical requirements.
