Plantation Shutters

Custom Plantation Shutters, also known as basswood shutters, are a popular shutter choice for those seeking an elegant design that allows for increased ventilation and light control, easy operation, long-term durability, and customisation. Our custom made plantation shutters are made from durable basswood that ensure levels of longevity and seamless functionality not often available with fabric or plastic based blinds. Plantation shutters receive their name for their popularity in America’s South - they were often fitted to elegant plantation mansions during the 18th and 19th century. Despite their modern popularity originating in America, it is thought a version of plantation shutters were first designed by Ancient Greeks seeking shutters that allowed significant airflow during summer times.

Plantation shutters are our most popular custom shutters. We are able to offer clients plantation shutters custom designed to their home’s interior. Our designs allow for a range of different aesthetic looks that ensure varying degrees of functionality; shutters can be designed so that portions of the shutters can remain open or closed independently allowing privacy and different lighting options as the need arises.

Our custom plantation shutters guarantee that we are able to design a shutter that fits directly into your existing interior design. Custom made plantation shutters are especially popular amongst clientele looking for a refined shutter design. Plantation shutters are designed with sturdy timber that emit an image of permanence that is not often associated with fabric-based blind designs. As mentioned previously, plantation shutters were popularised in 18th and 19th century mansions in America’s southern states - their reputation as a high-end design has permeated generations. In recent times, they have become increasingly popular with owners of both classic Australian homes and new developments.

Our custom plantation shutters’ basswood based design make them the most durable popular shutter design on the market. Custom made basswood shutters ensure that your purchase will maintain its effectiveness and appearance in your house far into the future. Unlike fabric and plastic based designs, custom plantation shutters are able to be opened and closed seamlessly without risk of tearing. This makes them a favourable choice amongst customers seeking easy usability when deciding on what type of custom shutters to incorporate into their home’s interior. 

Plantation shutters are ideal for both winter and summer conditions. Our custom plantation shutters consist of solid custom basswood shutters that trap internal heat during winter weather. During summers, the shutters open to create an almost entirely unobstructed airflow and light control through your house. The sturdiness of the design ensures there will be no wind induced movement or noise that can often occur with cheaper fabric manufactured blinds. In addition, shutter blinds block out the majority of sunlight and UV rays from your home when fully closed. The versatility of plantation shutters will allow you to reduce your energy costs without sacrificing the aesthetic appearance of your home. 


Plantation shutters are one of Australia’s most popular custom shutter choices for a multitude of reasons. They offer customers the ability to have an affordable shutter design that promotes internal climate control, hassle-free operation, long-term durability, and a range of customisations.
