They date back to Ancient Greece, where, made from marble, plantation shutters used to adorn the homes to the rich. Not much has changed then, as you can also get to enjoy the decorative edge plantation shutters can introduce to any room. Made from softwoods, typically Basswood, plantation shutters are a stylish and elegant addition to the windows of any room. Stained or painted, they can be adapted easily to suit the overall decor of the room.
Why Plantation Shutters?
Plantation shutters add that exotic island look to a room. They appear sturdier compared to blinds for the simple reason that the slats are slightly thicker than in Venetian blinds. Plantation shutters are designed for warmer climates and therefore ideal for your Sydney home. Combine the traditional feel of plantation shutters and the contemporary look of your decor to create stunning effect. Other benefits of plantation shutters are:
|They are great for ventilation, letting in a cool breeze on a hot summers day or night|
|Guaranteed privacy due to slat size and angled positioning|
|Light control at your fingertips, let in just as much or as little daylight as you need|
|Sturdy and durable, the design and construction of plantation shutters makes them strong and stable|
|Choice of finish, either painted or stained so the decorative options are unlimited|
|Great thermal insulation properties, keeping the sun out and the inside of your home cooler by day, as well as trapping all the heat and keeping your home warmer at night|
|They will fit almost any shape window, including patio doors|
Choosing Plantation Shutters For Your Sydney HomeOnce you have settled on plantation shutters as the window covering system of choice, other considerations you will need to make include the following:
- Are you going to go bespoke or you will order online, cut to size and fit yourself? When it comes to plantation shutters it’s better to get them measured and made bespoke. This way you are guaranteed they will fit perfectly, and you don’t have to break a sweat.
The existing room decor will also impact on the finish you will select, painted (if so what colour) or stained. Stained looks great in studies if they match the bookcases. White painted shutters suit the kitchen as they make the room feel sunny and airy when open.
