Plantation Shutters Gold Coast
Why plantation shutters?
Plantation shutters are not only popular because they look great – they’re an incredibly practical window treatment solution as well!
Plantation shutters are right at home in a wide range of interior design styles. From minimalist and modern through to coastal or country, the versatility of interior plantation shutters makes them an excellent addition to any home.
Interior plantation shutters can add value to your Gold Coast home and offer prospective buyers yet another feature to look for. From the added element of privacy to enhancing the classic or modern interior style of your home, plantation shutters are a great way to increase interest in your home.
Plantation shutter designs are built to last. A classic louvre design combined with durable materials means plantation shutters stand the test of time. From polymate shutters you can fit yourself, to PVC and classic timber, you can find it all here with us at Gold Coast Blinds & Shutters.
We’ve seen well maintained shutters still looking great after more than 20 years. Compare this to blinds that tend to look a little shabby after 5 years, or curtains that look a little drab when the colour or print has gone out of fashion.
The simple horizontal louvre design of plantation shutters makes them easy to control, permitting easy adjustment for both light and privacy. A small change in the angle of the slats will give you privacy without blocking your view and allowing natural light to flow into your home. Whilst not 100% blockout, when the plantation shutters are completely closed the room darkening of shutters is comparable to most blinds on the market and more than suitable for use in bedrooms. This design element also ensures a higher energy efficiency level for another added bonus.
Compared to curtains and other fabric blinds, plantation shutters are a breeze to clean. They allow you to take greater control of the natural light that enters your home, and even help keep your living spaces ventilated while providing shade!
The cost of plantation shutters depends on the size of your window and the material chosen. Although plantation shutters often cost more than blinds and curtains, they are longer lasting and in some cases, can add value to your home.

In short – yes! Although commonly associated with the Hamptons coastal trend and countryside look, plantation shutters can be designed to match any decor or style. Plantation shutters can be a timeless, versatile addition to your home. The variety of colours, materials and designs mean that plantation shutters won’t be going out of style anytime soon!
Plantation shutters are an investment. While blinds are significantly cheaper, they also wear and tear far quicker than shutters. On average, blinds last 4-5 years, while plantation shutters can last 25 years or more with proper care. While blinds allow light to seep in, expertly installed plantation shutters can allow full privacy and block light completely when needed.
