Homeowners trust Modern for our high quality plantation window shutters. Our locally manufactured Insulite plantation shutters are popular as a home décor choice in Victoria and across Australia because they look like real timber plantation shutters but are moisture resistant and highly durable. Check out our Sydney and Brisbane options.
Avoid constantly breaking shutters with Modern’s Cleartilt system. With no visible control tilt rod, you’ll have no repairs and no parts breaking.
All our shutters are moisture and water resistant with an aluminum core which means no warping, making them durable window coverings for your entire home, including wet areas like bathrooms and laundry.
Another reason our plantation shutters are such popular window coverings is because they provide excellent insulation. Our plantation shutters can greatly reduce energy costs
Our plantation shutters are made from non-toxic material. They’re also highly fire retardant needing up to 3 times more heat to ignite compared to wood or vinyl shutters.
Our old shutters were too dated after we renovated our home. We replaced them with Modern plantation shutters which lifted the look of our entire home and really tied together our renovations. Every time we have friends over they comment on how good they look.
Our kids were struggling to sleep since the sun heated their rooms up so much during the day. Once we installed plantation shutters the problem was solved - we just close them during the day in north facing rooms and our little ones sleep like babies.
We live in an area with a wet, hot and humid climate and our curtains kept getting mouldy. We’d had enough, so we installed Modern’s water resistant plantation shutters. Years later and they’re still mould free and in great condition!

This depends on your decor style, lifestyle needs and what you consider as an affordable price for your budget. When looking for new shutters and deciding what type of plantation shutter is best for your home, things to consider include:
Versatility: Our Insulite plantation shutters are moisture resistant which means they’re not only ideal for bay windows and standard window frames but also perfect for windows in wet areas like a laundry and bathroom.
Low maintenance: Our tilt rod system means no breaking parts which reduces inconvenient repairs (often common with cords of Venetian blinds). And because our plantation shutters are moisture resistant and highly durable, they won’t warp nor discolor, so will look like new for years.
Material: Our high quality Insulite plantation shutters are made from a premium dense polymer that looks and feels like real timber plantation shutters but offers the benefit of no-warp water resistance and long-term durability. Other possible materials include aluminium plantation shutters, timber plantation shutters, basswood shutters, and PVC plantation shutters.
Design: Styles include fixed plantations, bi-fold, sliding and hinged.
Peace of mind: Choose a name you trust for high quality home improvement products which are meant to last for years. Also look out for warranties for added peace of mind. For plantation shutters, Modern offers a 5-year warranty on panels and frame, a 3-year warranty on coating and movement components, and a 1-year warranty on workmanship and all other fixtures.

Extremely happy with my Plantation Shutters. Right from Lindy who took the initial order through to Tom the installer, professionals from start to finish. Highly recommended.
Highly recommend product, had outdoor shutters installed 10+ years ago and they are still going strong. Recently had plantations installed throughout the house and they look great and feel sturdy.
