What is MDF?

MDF is an acronym for Medium Density Fibreboard. In other words, MDF is an engineered composite wood, made by using wood fibres and bonding them together with resin. MDF manufacturing involves pressing and drying the wood fibres, making them more compact and dense, and therefore more stable. As a result, an MDF board will stand changes in heat and humidity much better than Hardwood.

Steve Green was a Phoenix Blinds customer several years ago and we were delighted to see him return to us when he was looking for another set of plantation style shutters for another room in his victorian home in Fareham. It was a lovely semi-detached house with large bay windows at the front, both at ground floor and first floor levels. Steve was clearly someone with an eye for design and detail, and whose careful and diligent approach to decoration had resulted in a beautiful home.

Make the most of Spring with a conservatory makeover

As Spring approaches and spring cleaning begins in earnest, it’s time to ready your conservatory for the warmer, lighter days ahead. 

Your conservatory may have been overlooked during the winter months but in the spring and summer these spaces really come into their own. A conservatory can be a wonderful, well-used, space in the spring and summer time. However the amount of glass in a conservatory can mean that the heat from the sun can be intensified and the space can become too hot and bright. A simple way to ensure you can be comfortable all year round is to install specialist conservatory blinds to help regulate the light and the temperature of your conservatory.......

How shutters can make a big impact on your energy costs and warmth

The beauty of plantation shutters is that they help to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Because they are made of wood, they are naturally insulating and therefore protect your windows from heat loss in the winter whilst offering shade and protection from the solar heat gain in the summer. They are much thicker than curtains and offer better insulation in the winter as well as better air circulation, thereby minimising the risk of condensation. In homes with poor air circulation, curtains can end up damp and affected by mildew in the winter.
