A Look At The History of Plantation Shutters
Shutters were used as a substitute for costly glass. They keep the harsh weather at bay but let air and light flow through. They also happen to be exceptionally good at keeping houses cool.
Nowadays they have a more decorative role, but these early practical features work with modern tech to help keep homes comfortable and secure.
What Type Of Shutter Is Best?
We offer all sorts of shutters and deciding which type of plantation shutters are best for you can be a challenge.
You can choose from aluminium, wood or vinyl and vary the design from traditional styles inspired by the Deep South to more contemporary looks with a sleek Asian vibe.
Why Choose Wooden Plantation Shutters?
Wooden plantation shutters have a classic colonial style feel that works beautifully in older properties. They can be painted to suit your colour scheme and often come in at a cheaper price point.
Wooden plantation shutters are durable, but they do require regular maintenance. You’ll need to varnish or paint every twelve months or so and be on the lookout for any minor repairs that need doing.
The rigours of the Australian climate can cause wood to warp and twist so if you’re looking for a no-maintenance option these might not be the plantation shutters for you.
Why Choose Aluminium Plantation Shutters?
Aluminium shutters are becoming increasingly popular. They offer a contemporary look that works well with many styles of home and are a great low maintenance option. Aluminium plantation shutters also offer sound protection against the elements and excess heat.
This type of shutter can also cope well with flying debris from more extreme storms. They are more expensive at the outset, but generally have a longer life than wooden shutters.
Why Choose Vinyl Plantation Shutters?
Vinyl plantation shutters are ideal for damp environments, so they’re a great option for kitchens and bathrooms. They are less likely to warp than wood, and there are no worries about mould, mildew or decay. Vinyl plantation shutters are typically fairly cheap too.
Plantation Shutters Help Home Security
Plantation shutters are a superb addition to your home’s security. Well fitted shutters create another physical barrier for any would-be thieves, and the noise and time involved in cutting through plantation shutters are likely to deter most opportunist criminals.
Aluminum shutters have an edge over wooden ones when it comes to security.
What About The Weight Of Your Plantation Shutters
The weight of your shutters is also an important factor. Quality timber shutters can be quite heavy, especially if your windows are tall, while aluminium or vinyl offer a lighter option. Heavy shutters can be more tricky to manoeuvre, and also put pressure on the fixings of the window.
Ultimately there is a balance between the pleasing aesthetic of timber and the practicality of aluminium or vinyl.
