We recently installed a combination of standard plantation shutters and 3 panel bi fold shutters into a Terrace house in Crows Nest, Sydney. The bi folds are secured by a bolt in the 3rd panel to prevent outward movement. As can be seen in the floor shot, the bi folds have no bottom frame which makes for easier access and a clean, neat and tidy appearance. The shutters in the west facing kitchen area look amazing. The shot was taken in the afternoon; long shadows and dappled light through the partly open shutter blades really add to the sophisticated look of this newly renovated kitchen.
