Benefits of Shutters (Why would you want Shutters?)

  • Do you want a more stylish attractive look for your indoor window furnishings?
  • Do you hate how your blinds flap in the breeze? Then shutters are for you.?
  • Do you think shutters might be too expensive? You will be surprised!

Our range of high quality plantation shutters are not as expensive as you might think.

The main reason our customers choose our plantation shutters is they allow for the control of light, vision and airflow.

This type of window furnishing is constructed using componentry which eliminates any movement as experienced with fabric blinds.

Plantation shutters are the ultimate style of covering when it comes to window furnishings. They add a very contemporary style to new homes with our new Ezi-tilt control system. For a more traditional look, by using our traditional tilt rod system, this will add to the character of older style homes, like queenslanders, weatherboard and stucco to name a few.?

There are more pros than cons when it comes to plantation shutters. Apart from being a very functional type of window furnishing, adding to the style of decor in any home, they still require cleaning, which anyone classes as a downside. Cleaning is very easy when it comes to Plantation Shutters. Because of the rigid componentry and framing design, it is as simple as wiping over a kitchen benchtop.

Plantation shutters have insulation and sound-proof qualities which assist in different applications for windows around the home or office. West facing rooms for example that are drenched heavy with afternoon sun in summer are easily kept cooler. Also, road facing windows with high traffic noise, with windows and plantation shutters closed can be kept quieter.

Our plantation shutters can be used on any window, door or opening in any building. We have our Woodbury Full Waterproof shutters that can be used in any wet area. With componentry to match the material used in these shutters, these will not be affected by moisture. A perfect window covering solution to wet areas, such as bathrooms, ensuites, toilets, laundries and buildings near the ocean or in humid areas such as areas across Queensland and to the north of Western Australia & The Northern Territory.

Our timber range of shutters can be used on any window or opening. though not recommended in wet areas duty to moisture being present, new applications with heat lamps and exhaust fans to bathrooms, ensuites etc have helped to eliminate the chance of damage to shutters over time.

All of our customers that have ever chosen to have our plantation shutters installed, have always commented on how great they look, the functionality of them, the finish they have brought to the rooms they’ve been added to and how much their friends and families comment on the fantastic look they have over their blinds. It’s usually not long after, we are quoting to install plantation shutters through word of mouth of our customers to their friends and families.

Plantation Shutters Pricing Guide

How much do shutters cost?

Shutter prices vary as there are many factors involved such as the different types of shutters available, stains and paints, componentry and fixtures needed for all the different applications, just to name a few. The width and height of the window or opening also matters. Price is affected by whether you have one large shutter or multiple smaller shutters across one window. The wider span a shutter has to cover requires heavier duty components to maintain rigidity, strength and operation functionality. Each shutter type has its own limitations in width and drop.?

For example in our Woodlore and Woodbury shutter range which is made with ABS plastic for its high impact resistance and toughness our blades have a solid timber insert to maintain shape and strength. This stops the louvers sagging in the heat.

If you are not sure of what type of blind will best suit your application, use our extensive experience to help you find the best blinds for your budget. We always try to help you by understanding your needs and our team will often have some innovative solutions to solve your window covering requirements.

Our plantation shutters are fully custom made to suit your needs. We can supply estimates from your own measurements but generally pricing is worked out once on site and after assessing the sizes, layouts and shutter panel quantities needed to best suit your windows.

We have found on many of our quotations that our shutter pricing is so competitive, it is often the same price as others quote for blinds. This again is due to our direct relationship with our quality manufacturers that cuts out the middle man.

Various Options

In our plantation shutter program, we not only have our selection of product materials but also a range of different louvre sizes which vary from 63mm, 89mm and 114mm widths. Our plantation shutter frames vary in styles and widths for different openings and applications.?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Are the shutters going to block out all of the light?

Not completely, shutters have moving parts so there are very small gaps at the edges of the blades. While they do a great job blocking out light if you want a complete blockout for a media / theatre room or a bedroom if you are a shift worker then you should consider Channel Roller Blinds.?
