Exceptional Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters or plantation blinds are normally used as interior window shades and are characterized by their large louvres. These covers are very popular among Brisbane homeowners, especially in the countryside.

These louvres have an elegant appearance that works beautifully in bedrooms and living areas. The width of the louvres varies from around 88mm to 115mm. Unlike blinds, shutters donโ€™t use a string. Instead, they open up like doors. While this is a matter of style, they are a little more elegant and strong than the simple blind.

Most homeowners usually choose a white colour for that classic and timeless look. There are many types, styles, and materials. These products have many benefits and great longevity.

What are the main types?

The three major types are vinyl PVC, composite, and wood shutters. Of course, they will often be a mix of materials and will still come with elements such as steel or aluminium.

PVC Vinyl Plantation Shutters

Vinyl screens are the most affordable option. They are usually 100% synthetic and are made from PVC material. To enhance its strength and durability, vinyl manufacturers normally use aluminium as supporting material. There are different types including hollow vinyl, structured hollow vinyl, solid vinyl, and solid vinyl with aluminium insert.

Composite Plantation Shutters

The word composite here means that this product is made of engineered woods which are then wrapped with vinyl material. The combination of the two materials makes them the perfect option for Brisbane homeowners who are looking for strong and weather-resistant cover without having to break the bank. Wood composite is also a more environmentally friendly product as it uses the waste from the timber industry to create a stronger and more flexible result.

Wood Plantation Shutters

When working with wood, you can create any form you want. Unlike vinyl and composite materials, which are prefabricated into colours and styles, wood can be developed into any desired shape and size. They tend to be more expensive and have to be finished correctly. Wood can warp if it is not protected against heat and moisture.

Can they add value to my home?

High quality, tasteful, well-installed, long-lasting covers can add value to your home or business premises. While it wonโ€™t add as much value as a home extension or a garage, potential buyers look to these finishing touches, and they have a definite effect on purchasing decisions. Shutters also look better and more elegant than blinds and other options.

What are the benefits?

Once installed, they require little maintenance, and you can enjoy them for many years. Given todayโ€™s extreme temperature swings, their ability to maintain a room heated in the cold season and airy in the warmer months makes them extremely desirable.

They are also useful in terms of reducing noise and enhancing the look of your home. Needless to say, they also perform their primary purpose of allowing light in while providing privacy from onlookers.

One of the most appealing features is that they can be custom made to fit your windows, making installation more refined. Since these products are pre-hinged and have all of the magnets and plates in place, the installation process should be straightforward, though there is a lot of variances depending on the type of product you are purchasing.

What is the cost of Brisbane plantation shutters?

But the two most relevant factors would be the material type and the total surface area.

PVC might cost $180 โ€“ 220 per square metre, softwood and engineered wood might cost between $200 โ€“ 400, and hardwood will cost above $400 per square metre. Aluminium is sometimes used for shutters, and this will also cost more than $400 per square metre.

You also have to factor in the cost of installation if youโ€™re not doing it yourself. Hourly, youโ€™ll pay between $60 โ€“ 100. And it takes around an hour per window to install, which is something to keep in mind.

Frequently Asked Questions About Plantation Shutters In Brisbane

How do they differ from regular shutters?

They have slatted blinds that are found inside their own frame. The louvres (also known as the slats) can be tilted in order to control the opening and closing. The difference between plantation and regular window shades is that the louvres of the first ones are wider and stronger.

Can they fully block off the light?

Yes, they can. In fact, many of our customers choose to avail themselves of our products in order to improve their sleep. Our products have the thickness to block out unwanted light so that you wonโ€™t be disturbed in the morning. This is especially good for children.

Can I install them myself?

Technically, you can. We created an in-depth step by step guide for the installation of plantation shutters for this very reason. But despite following the steps, it is rarely worth the time to install them by yourself. Because even if you do take the time to install them by yourself, itโ€™s highly likely that the shutters wonโ€™t be flush, meaning there will be messy gaps. Even if you are off by a few millimetres in measurement, the shutter wonโ€™t fit neatly together. It will take about an hour to install a panel per window on a standard window. The tools needed are fairly basic, but you need to take the time to do the measurements.

How do I know which type of cover is right for me?

Many people actually confuse blinds with shutters. Blinds come with a cord and are attached to the window recess. Shutters are attached to the window frame and can be either inside or outside. They are sturdier and last longer, without a messy cord.

A default option would potentially be aluminium supported PVC. This ensures the aesthetic appeal, affordability and flexibility of PVC with the added strength of aluminium. This tends to be the most popular material to use. You can customise the colour and finish to match your home or business. The Brisbane service provider will take care of the measurements so that the product is a good fit.
