Plantation shutter FAQs

What is the Cleartilt plantation shutter system?

Modern’s Cleartilt system is built into each shutter and is completely hidden, providing easy motion with no tensioning required. As a result our blinds look better, with no visible tilt rod or external connectors. Our shutters also last longer, with no easily breakable staples or rear connectors, unlike other shutters.

Do Modern plantation shutters provide insulation?

Modern plantation shutters provide excellent insulation and could reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 35%, depending on where you live.

How long will Modern plantation shutters last?

All our plantation shutters are made with hi-tech polymer which is engineered to minimise warping, cracking or peeling. Our acrylic paint even has UV inhibitors to protect your shutters from the sun. They come with a five year warranty backed by the Modern name.

Does Modern install and service Australia-wide, including Melbourne?

Yes, Modern have expert teams across Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Launceston. Our window covering and window shutter options include outdoor blinds, outdoor roller shutters, plantation shutters, and louvre shutters (which are like outdoor aluminium plantation shutters). We also have ongoing specials through the year across our product range.

Make contact to enquire about our quality products and plantation blinds range. You can also book a Modern expert consultant to visit your home to discuss our window covering solutions, time frame for ordering and installation, and what may work best for you.

And even though DIY installation is a great idea for many home décor projects for Australian homes, when it comes to installing plantation shutters, we don’t recommend DIY shutter blinds nor DIY installation. As a long-term investment that adds value to your home, rather have a Modern professional come in and do the job. This will save you money in the long run since they’ll do it right the first time.

What are the different types of plantation shutters?

Plantation window shutters vary in design and material. For a perfect fit to enhance your living room and block out light, choose from design styles including fixed plantations, bi-fold, sliding and hinged. Another design element is the tilt rod, which is a thin piece of wood hidden inside your plantation shutters to help move the slats as one unit. Modern’s plantation shutters use an inbuilt Cleartilt system which has no visible tilt rod and eliminates parts that constantly break in other timber shutters. Explore colour options such as bright white or off-white.

Plantation shutters are also made out of different types of wood, including basswood and poplar. Indoor plantations can also be constructed of plastic (such as PVC plantation shutters) of varying qualities, or Insulite, a premium dense polymer that looks and feels like real timber shutters. Product quality will depend on a retailer’s product range and years of experience and service—where it’s best to enquire online or to visit a showroom.

What are the benefits of Modern’s plantation shutters?

Plantation shutters are a low-maintenance, highly functional window covering option allowing airflow when slats are open and complete privacy and sun blockout when slats are closed. Other benefits of Modern’s high quality beautiful shutters compared to curtains, venetian blinds and awnings include: long-lasting, timeless elegance, insulation, noise reduction, versatility, and eco-friendliness.
