Choose the Right Material
Purchase plantation shutters in aluminium, basswood or PVC. Aluminium shutters offer increased security and a stylish look which is low maintenance and can be chosen in a range of painted finishes and styles.
Basswood offers similar benefits and is the most durable and lightest hardwood available for shutters. PVC shutters are ideal for areas prone to moisture or open to extreme UV rays. PVC does not get affected by the light and will not crack or warp.
Size and Tilting of the Slats
When ordering your Sydney plantation shutters decide on the size and tilt of the slat you’d prefer. How much light do you want to come into your home? Smaller slats tend to sit tighter together when shut and block light better. Larger slats let more natural light into a room, creating an airy feel.
Decide on the Colour Scheme
Choosing the colour of your shutters is the final step. Have you got a colour scheme through the rest of your house? If you answered yes, choose a shutter colour that ties in with a main accent colour. To make your shutters a focal point, opt for a bolder tone. And if you can’t decide, white or a natural stained wood goes with any home décor style.
