Décor trends the family will love

One of the up-sides of spending more time at home due to the Covid-19 pandemic is that we get to spend more time with family. Décor trends prioritise warm, inviting surroundings, not the sparse, clinical interiors of yesteryear. Trellidor have some ideas to share to achieve this change in direction.

Functional vs frivolous

Lockdowns have forced us to assess what we really need and what is unnecessary clutter or overly pretentious. Fussy curtains and busy burglar bars fall into the latter category. Rather opt for aluminium shutters that replace curtains, blinds, and burglar proofing in streamlined product one and are visually pleasing.

Low maintenance and practical

Our greatest need now is to reduce stress, so practical products that don’t need much upkeep are high on the list. Security shutters are a perfect fit. Robust enough for frequent use, they’re simple to wipe down when dirty or dusty. Trellidor Security Shutter louvres are tilted by hand, so you can get your privacy levels, air flow and light penetration just right.

Perfect for patios

Many of us work from home now, holding virtual meetings on the patio while keeping a watchful eye on children playing nearby. Aluminium louvre shutters around the patio allow you to open up to reveal the view and keep an eye on children playing outside. Or close and lock them for a safe ‘indoor’ place for children to play in bad weather.

On-trend colours

Bland colour palettes are on their way out, with characterful colours being chosen to add some warmth and comfort to our homes. Crisp white is most often chosen for security shutters, but Trellidor offers a wide range of colours that add richness and character to home décor. Try matt black, matt charcoal or matt bronze for shutters that provide some visual fun in your home.

Multi-functional spaces

Shutters can be used to create privacy in open plan interiors, so there is no conflict between those working in the dining area and others watching TV in the lounge, for example. Security shutters divide up a room when you close them and open again for a free-flowing space.

Unobtrusive security

Secure estates usually have rules about what you can and can’t do to the appearance of your home. Security shutters fitted internally don’t violate any of these rules. They provide security without looking like security barriers at all, making them totally acceptable in this type of development.

Integrate old and new

One of the biggest trends in interior décor is the integration of traditional and contemporary design. We are displaying décor items that are meaningful rather than purely fashionable, blending our modern interiors with family heirlooms or holiday mementos. Security shutters fit into this trend seamlessly because they harmonise with any home style, from traditional to modern.

Trellidor Products

New estate-compliant product solutions from Trellidor

2 min read Trellidor has launched two new products that  provide solutions to the tension between the need to preserve the homogenous look of carefully chosen home designs and homeowners’ requests for permission to install security barriers on windows, doors or around patios.

Trellidor Clear Guard features

< 1 min read These are sophisticated woven steel mesh panels inside a neat frame, so discreet that you hardly notice they’re there. You can see right through the mesh screen and it allows some airflow into your home.

Trellidor Retractable Security features

< 1 min read All Trellidor security barriers are custom-made to fit the opening and its specific requirements, so there is no standard price. Trellidor security barriers are available through authorised Trellidor franchises countrywide and they will gladly measure the opening and give a quotation.

Trellidor Polycarbonate Bar features

< 1 min read You may have seen these before, but not quite like this. This is not just Polycarbonate strips nailed to your windows. The Trellidor version is fully framed and attached to the wall inside the window reveal for a neat, strong fit. It is satisfyingly refined and barely there, keeping the monkeys out and protecting you from petty theft through your windows too.

Trellidor Cottage Guard features

< 1 min read These do verge on looking like conventional burglar proofing. But they’re worth a mention because they can be made to match cottage pane windows perfectly. This means that the gap sizes will be the same as your windows, so you can’t see the Cottage Guard at all. They’re immensely strong burglar bars and excellent for high crime risk windows.

Trellidor Rollerstyle Shutter features

< 1 min read Manual and automated rolling shutters that are completely invisible when you don’t need them. Made from aluminium, they have a slim profile and don’t require a bottom track so there is no cutting into your floor.

Trellidor Security Shutter features

< 1 min read All Trellidor security barriers are custom-made to fit the opening and its specific requirements, so there is no standard price. Trellidor security barriers are available through authorised Trellidor franchises countrywide and they will gladly measure the opening and give a quotation.
