Window Shutters in East London from Shutters Factory

East London is one of the most diverse areas of the whole country, and not just the capital itself. It contains the thriving hustle and bustle of Brick Lane, the office skyscrapers and regeneration projects which have been built in the heart of London’s former Docklands, as well as the green spaces of Epping Forest.

Shutters Factory provide window shutters in East London for various types of properties and window shapes found across the capital. Here is our borough-by-borough focus on this region of London.

Barking and Dagenham

The London borough of Barking and Dagenham contains the two towns mentioned in its name, as well as the other main population centre of Chadwell Heath. Dagenham is most famous for its Ford car plant, which now concentrates on engine manufacturing.

It is among the cheapest boroughs in London in which to live, with lots of council estates. A conscious effort is now being made to improve the area for its young and multicultural population.

Hackney

Technically part of Inner London, this borough has a population of just over 280,000. It contains part of the main complex built for the 2012 Olympic Games.

Like Barking and Dagenham, it is highly multicultural, with a thriving nightlife and plenty of places to eat out. The area contains a mix of new apartment blocks and older terraced houses, with the most expensive properties those closest to central London.

Havering

This is the furthest east of all the London boroughs. The main population centre is Romford, and the other principal towns in the borough are Hornchurch, Upminster, Collier Row and Rainham.

It is less culturally diverse than many East London boroughs. This is because it tends to attract families who want a slice of country life – much of the borough borders with rural Essex, and more than half of it is parkland, making it one of the capital’s greenest areas.

Newham

With over 350,000 residents, Newham is the third-largest borough in London by population. It includes the towns of Stratford, Plaistow, Canning Town and Forest Gate.

A massive regeneration project saw it become the main centre for the 2012 Olympics, including the main stadium, which is now home of West Ham FC. Like Hackney, the area has a mix of new flats, which are particularly popular with those who work in Canary Wharf, and older terraced homes, particularly Victorian properties.

Redbridge

Is a borough in North East London that contains the towns of Ilford (which the main administrative centre), Wanstead, and Woodford. The name Redbridge comes from a red brick bridge (now demolished) that spanned the River Roding in the borough. It is a culturally diverse borough, with four out of every ten residents being from an ethnic minority.

The area has a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes (plus some new apartments). It is popular with young families because properties are among the most affordable in London.

Tower Hamlets

This covers much of the traditional East End of London, including the redeveloped Docklands, as well as the population centres of Wapping, Bow and Bethnal Green. Almost half of the population is from an ethnic minority background – particularly Bangladeshi. Brick Lane is famous the world over as a centre of curry houses.

St Katherine’s Docks and Canary Wharf (pictured) are among the most expensive areas to live, while more affordable properties can usually be found further east in Mile End, Bow and Globe Town.

Waltham Forest

This North East London borough includes the towns of Leyton, Leytonstone (Leyton Orient is the borough’s main football team), Chingford and Walthamstow. There is plenty of green space too. Epping Forest, which is almost 6,000 acres of woodland, runs through the borough, while the Lee Valley Regional Park (which also formed part of the 2012 Olympic site) offers lots of outdoor sports and activities.

Younger people are more likely to be able to afford homes in central Walthamstow, which also offers the advantage of the Victoria tube line into central London. If you are interested in plantation shutters and live in or near Chingford, Shutters Factory has a stand in the Costco store in Harbet Road where you can learn more about our products.
