Types of Plantation Shutters
Timber / Wooden Shutters
Timber or wooden plantation shutters bring warmth to the design of your home. Wooden shutters are environmentally friendly, and the material’s high quality means that they will last for a long time.
One of the most popular choices for timber shutters is basswood. Basswood shutters are very durable and versatile. They can be used in wet areas such as the kitchen and bathroom and will not become warped or buckled from moisture exposure.
Aluminium plantation shutters are one of the most energy-efficient options, as the aluminium not only decelerates the flow of heat but also reflects back the heat from the sun, stopping it from entering your home.
Aluminium shutters are lightweight and incredibly durable. They are suitable for all areas of your house, including the outside, as they will not be affected by moisture or sunlight exposure.
PVC Plantation Shutters
PVC is a strong, long-lasting synthetic plastic. PVC shutters are suitable for any weather conditions, even the harsh sunlight of Western Australia. With excellent insulation properties, PVC shutters are a great addition to control the light and heat in your home.
PVC plantation shutters are suitable for any room in her house, including wet spaces, and can be painted any colour to suit your style.
