Plantation shutters – where privacy meets luxury

Also known as interior shutters, plantation shutters are the perfect way to add privacy and luxury to your home. Dressing your windows with plantation shutters also adds a hint of style, versatility and plenty of value.

Plantation shutters are a sleek, minimalist option that oozes style and sophistication, and won’t clash with your room decor. Choose from a range of colours and materials, including greys, charcoals, whites and timbers.

They can be custom made to fit your exact measurements, and are a great option for any room in your home – just be sure to accurately measure your windows for the perfect fit. And unlike curtains, the shutters can be adjusted to let in varying levels of sunlight, as opposed to having to be either wide open or fully closed with curtains.

They can also be used as an adjustable room divider, making your home look more spacious than with a fixed wall. Perfect for windows in your bathroom, kitchen, lounge or bedroom, as well being a great option for sliding doors.

Why purchase plantation shutters?

• They can be a lower cost option when compared to custom-made curtains.

• They also look cleaner and neater than curtains and take up less space.

• An incredibly low maintenance option, and you won’t have to worry about dampness and mould ruining your curtains.

• Can be either manual or motorized for added convenience.

Louvers

The louver is the official name for the slat used on the plantation shutters.

Available in a range of widths from skinny louvers to extra-large, each size has different benefits.

Skinnier louvers allow for more privacy when kept open whilst larger louvers allow for a greater view.

Function

Plantation shutters can be made to suit a variety of applications.

If you are pressed for wall space, a bi-fold plantation shutter would be the ideal option for you.

If you intend on having your plantation shutter as a wall feature as well as a blind, a shutter that opens from the centre that is also hinged will sit flush against the wall and will be the perfect option.

A sliding plantation shutter is a beautiful option if you’d always like them to be on show.

A divider rail in the centre of a shutter will allow for easy control over the natural light being let in.

Materials

Plantation shutters can be produced in different materials.

The most common being:

  • Wood - by far the most popular and enduring material. Mostly made from basswood or cedar, wood plantation shutters can be painted or stained to suit any interior décor.

  • Imitation Timber - synthetic, these are a great option if you still want to have the beautiful look of plantation shutters in your bathroom, or an area that is prone to receive a lot of moisture.
