Plantation shutter costs FAQs

Is it worth getting plantation shutters?

There are many reasons why thousands of our customers justify the upfront cost of plantation shutters. Our plantation shutters are built to last. This means you won’t need to worry about replacement or maintenance for years. Plantation shutters add style and are a popular choice for interior shutters for an entire home—often a top choice for renovations. There’s also functionality. Plantation shutters provide airflow and sun blockout simply by tilting the louvres. Plantation shutters are also incredibly versatile. A recent independent review rated our shutters 55% cooling efficiency. Because our plantation shutters are moisture resistant, you can install them in your entire home, including wet areas like bathrooms and laundry.

How much does it cost to put up shutters?

This depends on the square metre size of your windows, and number of windows. Depending on your home plan, window size and area, you can choose customised sliding, stacked or bi-fold shutters to enhance your home interior, adding value to your property. So the price is variable depending on your specific requirements. Enquire online or give us a call to find out more about our plantation shutters price, whether for your entire home or a single bay window.

Are plantation shutters more expensive?

In general plantation shutters are considered more expensive than some window coverings but for good reason. Compared to some alternative window coverings, plantation shutters are much easier to maintain, timeless and stylish fixtures that add value to your home. Plantation shutters also insulate your home which means you’ll enjoy energy savings. Because plantation shutters add value to your home, many homeowners install plantation shutters before selling their property. Plantation shutters are also a popular décor choice for renovations.

How much do plantation shutters cost?

Plantation shutters price depends on a number of factors which include:

Shutter material: Plantation shutters can be made from different types of wood (including basswood and poplar), or made of plastic (such as PVC shutters) of different qualities, or Insulite (a premium dense polymer that looks and feels like real timber).

Square metre size: The size and amount of windows impact the quantity and will determine how many materials and hours are needed for the job.

Quality: Plastic and PVC plantation shutters are less expensive. Wood, like timber plantation shutters, can get costly fast. Insulite looks like real wood but doesn’t cost as much.

Our range of options are made from non-toxic and recycled products, so they’re more economical and environmentally friendly than expensive hardwood alternatives. Of course, other companies charge a lot more, and some charge a lot less- while we can’t speak for their products because we make ours locally, rest assured you’re getting a premium product for less. We know how important it is for our customers to feel confident about their home improvement purchases. 

What is the best type of shutter for a person's needs?

Every person has different needs and every homeowner has a different idea of beauty and functionality. If your window covering needs are versatility, functionality, style, beauty, insulation, airflow, energy savings, and moisture resistant, then plantation shutters may be a perfect choice for your needs. Plantation shutters are also a popular choice by homeowners doing renovations looking to add value to their home. Plantation shutters suit all aspects of a home from your living room to a sliding door.

How do you measure the size of plantation shutters? Should you DIY?

Because plantation shutters are custom made and long-term fixtures in your home they require a perfect fit. This means it’s best to not DIY in terms of measuring window size nor installation.  Poorly fitted plantation shutters will greatly affect the longevity of the product, require continual maintenance and won’t produce the desired aethestic.

What are plantation window shutter installation costs?

For precise fitment and long-term use and enjoyment of your plantation interior shutters, it’s best to opt for specialised and professional installation. There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to window coverings nor an average cost, whether for standard windows, bay windows or an entire home.
