Wooden Window Shutters
Classic, functional, energy efficient and easy to install, it’s easy to see why Australia has such an ongoing love affair with wooden window shutters.Timeless Look
If your interior style is aiming for French Provincial or beachside chic then it is hard to beat the white wood shutters for a classic finish to any room. Light, bright and airy, white plantation shutters add effortless charm and an added sophistication to a living space. A natural timber look, on the other hand, will add warmth and colour to a room, particularly the ever popular cedar window shutters, which are also very durable.Easy To Install
Another great thing about wooden window shutters is how easy they are to install, which means that you can pick up some fantastic used wooden window shutters for a fraction of the price. If you’ve got the right size for your windows then all you’ll need is a drill, drill bit, tape measure, level and a pencil and the job can be done in a weekend.Keep Out The Heat
In a comparison with curtains, wooden window shutters are found to last longer, better regulate air flow and provide better insulation which keeps the heat in during winter and reflects the heat out during summer.Maximise Security
A report by NRMA Insurance stated that 55% of home burglaries occur through unprotected windows. Having sturdy plantation shutters fitted over your windows is a strong visual deterrent to would-be thieves. It sends the message that this home is not an easy target, and the majority of criminals will simply look elsewhere rather than tackle a well protected home.
