When it comes to choosing window coverings for your home, plantation shutters undoubtedly have a lot to offer- they’re sturdy, stylish, practical and cost-effective. Considering all of this, it’s easy to see why plantation shutters in Perth have become an increasingly attractive option for people all over the city. If you’re considering embracing this stylish and functional trend, here are our favourite reasons you should take the plunge.
What are plantation shutters?
Traditionally, plantation shutters are moveable, slatted window coverings made from wood. While sometimes referred to as louvres, there is a technical difference between the two: louvres are not movable, while the blades on shutters can be adjusted to alter the light and airflow coming into a room.

Choose from different materials
Nowadays, plantation shutters are made from a variety of different materials. Timber is still popular, but you can also find them made in PVC, aluminium and other materials.
Suitable for a variety of rooms
While traditionally used as an exterior window covering, modern plantation shutter use has evolved to include various settings. People now often use them in their interiors and even as doors (when accompanied by the appropriate hinging methods).
Simple and easy to use
Unlike cumbersome and complicated curtains or roller blinds, plantation shutters offer a simple and effective level of practicality. They can be quickly and easily adjusted to alter the amount of natural light and fresh air entering your home.
Plantation shutters are made from long-lasting materials, and because they’re still manufactured using traditional methods, they stand the test of time. Combine this with their timeless look, and your plantation shutters will last for many years to come.
At Decor Blinds & Curtains, we use environmentally friendly materials such as sustainably sourced timber. This means our plantation shutters are strong, stable, lightweight and suited to the Australian climate.
