Frequently asked questions
What are external plantation shutters?
Plantation shutters have tilted louvres, which look quite like the slats on blinds. However, unlike blinds, the shutters are mounted to the window frame and open like a set of doors as opposed to with a wand, chain or cord system.
External plantation shutters are installed on the outside of your windows or doors, with an extra-durable design to withstand Australia’s harsh weather.
What is the best material for outdoor plantation shutters?
The best material for outdoor plantation shutters depends on their intended purpose and your personal preferences.
That said, external aluminium plantation shutters are the most popular choice for alfresco areas thanks to their unrivalled durability, easy cleaning and cost-effective results.
Are plantation shutters worth it for alfresco areas?
If you would like to control light and privacy levels in your alfresco area, then exterior plantation shutters are worth the investment.
Plantation shutters are low maintenance and long lasting, keeping your space protected against prying eyes and UV rays for years to come.
Open the shutters to fill your outdoor area with sunlight or close them to enjoy privacy and a more comfortable temperature.
Should I put shutters outside every window or just the windows where they are needed?
The number of external plantation shutters you should use depends on the size of your property, the amount of windows it has, your budget and whether you would like to create a balanced aesthetic for greater curb appeal.
If you would like to keep costs down, there are a number of options to consider when it comes to the placement of your plantation shutters.
For example, you could limit their use to particular spaces, storeys or sides of your property. If you opt for this approach, we recommend installing shutters on every window of the chosen room, floor or wall to ensure a consistent look and feel.
