Frequently asked questions
Our plantation shutters are made from aluminium reinforced PVC, a durable, tough and water-resistant material that is suitable for anywhere within the interior of your home - from wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms to the most sun-drenched of front windows. The PVC brings durability, while the aluminium core offers strength and prevents bowing. This combination of materials is not just ideal for general weathering, it also gives your plantation shutters the greatest chance of standing up to inevitable wear and tear - even from kids and pets! Please note that our plantation shutters are not for exterior use.
We offer our plantation shutters in three beautiful shades of white, enabling them to seamlessly match with any interior decor or colour scheme, and helping them to reflect away as much of the sun’s heat as possible, keeping your home cooler. The crispest, coolest and ‘whitest’ of these colours is called Snow, while the warmest, ‘beigest’ colour is Classic. The third option, Bright, sits between the others in terms of brightness and temperature. To help you perfectly match your plantation shutters with your home’s interior, we've compared our three colour options to Australia's most popular white paints from Dulux, Wattyl and Haimes.

While there are some exceptions, almost all plantation shutters will need to be installed within a frame. For your convenience, all of The Shutters Department shutters are sold with a frame. We have three types to choose from, all of which are manufactured to fit the size and style of your window. If you need an inside mount (sometimes called a recess fit) you can choose between a Z frame or an L frame. Outside mounted shutters (face fit) will use an L frame. To learn more about which frame you’ll need to correctly install your plantation shutters, click here.
No matter which frame and shutter combination you choose, installation is surprisingly easy. Why pay a tradesman for something you can easily do yourself? The Shutters Department has detailed, easy to follow guides that will allow you to install your new plantation shutters in no time! You can check out our guides here.
