Plantation shutters Sydney FAQs

What are the disadvantages of plantation shutters?

There are different advantages and disadvantages depending on what type of plantation shutter you choose. Not all plantation shutters are manufactured nor installed the same. For example, real wood shutters are loved for their look and feel but they can warp because they are not moisture resistant. While PVC plantation shutters are moisture resistant, they don’t provide the elegance of wood plantation shutters and are heavy to use. Modern’s Insulite plantation shutters combine the benefits of both wood and PVC plantation shutters. Made from the highest quality dense polymer, Modern’s range of plantation shutters provide the elegant look and feel of wood and moisture resistance.

Are plantation shutters outdated?

No, they’re timeless window coverings. Plantation shutters have been around for centuries because of their functionality, versatility and aesthetic appeal. In ancient Greece, the slats design let in the Mediterranean breeze while providing privacy and light control. In the 1800s, plantation shutters were chosen as elegant window furnishings for stately homes in America’s South. Today homeowners across the world, from Campbelltown to Cape Town to Canberra, choose top quality plantation shutters for their elegance, light control, low maintenance, privacy and insulation. Plantation shutters suit all aspects of a home from your living room to a sliding door.

Is it worth getting plantation shutters?

If you’re looking for new shutters, quality plantation shutters which are professionally installed will add value to your home. Plantation shutters’ functionality will also enhance your lifestyle, providing privacy, shade, insulation and light control. Plantation shutters are also a top home décor choice for renovations and for owners looking to sell because they’re stylish low maintenance window coverings. The many benefits of plantation shutters make them a popular worthwhile décor and lifestyle choice. And for the perfect fit for years of functionality and enjoyment, it’s best to get professional installation and not DIY.

How much do real plantation shutters cost?

When it comes to window coverings, there are many options homeowners consider which range in price. For example, Venetian blinds and fabric roller blinds may be regarded as cheaper window covering options upfront but aren’t low maintenance nor moisture resistant for the long term. So the pros and cons of new window furnishing options need to be weighed up as a personal choice. When it comes to affordable prices, the long-term benefits of quality plantation shutters often makes them a top pick for homeowners.

Even within the wide range of plantation window shutters, the cost will depend on a number of factors, some of which include:

Material: Plantation shutters are available in a range of materials which impact cost. Choice of materials includes wood shutters like timber plantation shutters and basswood shutters which look beautiful but can warp because they’re not moisture resistant. Real wood shutters are also considered pricey. While PVC plantation shutters are a moisture resistant option, they’re heavy duty making them heavy to use. Modern’s Insulite plantation shutters combine the best benefits of many types of shutters for low maintenance, versatility, ease of use, moisture resistance and durability. Modern’s range is also made from non-toxic and 100% fully recyclable material.

Window size: The size of your windows and number of windows will impact on the cost of your selected plantation shutters. How many square metres? How many panels?

Design: There’s also choice in design of plantation shutters to suit all types of windows and décor preferences. These include fixed, bi-fold, sliding and hinged.

Quality: For long-term value, choose shutters made from quality materials. While high quality products may cost more upfront, choosing high quality products means less maintenance costs in the long term. High quality products are often backed by warranties—like Modern’s range. All this makes for affordable prices in the long run.

Warranty: A trusted warranty on plantation shutters not only offers years of peace-of-mind but means less repairs and maintenance in the long run. This means your upfront cost is reduced knowing you’ll have less repair costs in the years ahead. Modern’s warranty on plantation shutters includes a 5 year warranty on shutter panels and frame, a 3 year warranty on coating and movement components, and a 1 year warranty on workmanship and all other fixtures.
