We are a name thousands of Australian homeowners trust, providing high quality products and specialised services for more than 40 years. All our products are made in Australia to withstand Australia’s harsh weather conditions. This means they’re built to last and look good for the long term.
Our Insulite range is low maintenance with an inbuilt Cleartilt system and no visible tilt rod to reduce the inconvenience of breaking parts.
Enjoy bright white plantation shutters in any room of your home. Because our plantation shutters are water and moisture resistant they’re also perfect for wet areas like bathrooms and laundries.
Homeowners choose our plantation shutters to also enjoy cost savings of up to 35% on energy bills.
Made from non-toxic materials, our plantation shutters are highly fire retardant, needing up to 3 times more heat to ignite than 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!
We are an Australian owned business and manufacture all our products in Australia. This means quality products backed by a trusted name that provide reliable and fast delivery.

If you choose quality products like Modern’s range, there are many advantages of plantation shutters. These include:
Airflow and light control: Simply tilt the slats to maximise air flow and control light while enjoying your view. Even though plantation shutters often stand alone as window coverings, you can also pair with sheer curtains so that you can still enjoy air flow and light control.
Versatility: Our range of moisture resistant bright white plantation shutters are perfect for any room in your home. From bay windows and living rooms to bathrooms and kitchens! Our plantation shutters also offer design versatility and can be bi-fold, sliding, hinged or fixed.
Adds value to your property: If you’re looking for new blinds, plantation shutters are a top choice when renovating because they are stylish and timeless. Bright white plantation shutters match all types of interior design styles as they are a classic window covering that doesn’t date.
Low maintenance: Compared to other window coverings, our plantation shutters are easy to care for. Unlike fabric roller blinds or basswood shutters, plantation shutters offer long-term moisture resistant practicality.
Our custom-made Insulite window shutters are built to last and won’t tarnish with time. They’re also easy to care for. Simply wipe down with a damp cloth. Or a quick wash with a mild detergent will keep your shutters looking like new. Our plantation shutters also won’t warp like real wood timber shutters because our shutters are water and moisture resistant.
This depends on your personal style and preference. Although for long-term enjoyment and to add value to your home, many homeowners choose bright white or off-white plantation shutters when looking for new blinds. Bright white is a timeless and classic colour that doesn’t date and often chosen for permanent interior fixtures to keep the décor canvas blank for potential buyers.
Bright white is a timeless colour that adds light and a sense of fresh air to any room in your home. Besides the colour, bright white plantation shutters brighten your home because of their design. Plantation shutters are popular window furnishings because you can easily let in light and fresh air by tilting the slats. Slats are also known as blades and blade sizes may vary for different plantation shutters. While plantation shutters are similar to Venetian blinds in appearance because of their tilting horizontal slats, our plantation shutters are low maintenance with parts built to last, with no cords or visible tilt rod.
It depends on the plantation shutters’ material. White wood plantation shutters can warp with moisture so they need special care when cleaning. Modern’s range of white plantation shutters are low maintenance and easy to clean because our range is moisture resistant. Simply wipe down our Insulite white plantation shutters with a damp cloth or a quick wash with a mild detergent to keep your shutters looking like new for the long term.
Because plantation shutters are fixtures in your home that add value to your property for the long run, it’s best to choose professional installers and not DIY. For maximum enjoyment, ease of use and low maintenance, opt for perfect fit professional installation—which is also easy installation! Plantation shutters can be recess fit or face fit window furnishings. Recess fit means the window shutters fit inside the window frame. A face fit is when the shutter is affixed to the outside face of your window architrave. Modern offer a no-obligation free measure and quote and professional easy installation on our wide range of window shutters.
At Modern! We have specialised teams across Australia including Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra, Central Coast, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth. We don’t recommend DIY—to ensure a perfect fit into your window frame, it’s best to choose professional installation. This also ensures maximum enjoyment and less repairs. Contact us today with any questions or to arrange a free visit and no-obligation measure and quote.
The Modern Group’s service, supply and fitting of our shutters was seamless and professional and done by the friendliest team.
We particularly like the way we can close the shutters for privacy whilst leaving the top part open for fresh air. Well done Modern.
A very high quality product made in Queensland with impeccable service. We will most definitely be using again.
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.
