The number of plantation shutter styles have grown since they were introduced in the market. If you are selecting timber, it should never be pine. Opt for the finest wood from sustainable forests instead. The hinges and joints should be strong enough to handle years of opening and closing without sagging in your Sydney home.
The selection you make will depend on how much light and privacy you want and need. Larger sized shutters allow light more generously and are often best for a window with a great view.
Some Sydney suppliers use standard sized products and cut them down to size, while here at Empire Window Furnishings, we custom-design the product to suit the particular window being fitted. This is especially important if the products are for an unusually shaped space such as a circular or triangular window.
If you live in an area where white ants (termites) are a problem our e20 range are probably the best option as they contain no wood and are therefore termite-resistant. These are also the best choice for wet areas such as bathrooms and laundry, and are often the preferred choice for kitchens.
As every home and office is different, consider all your options before making a final choice. Take the time to think about the type, materials used, and colour. This window furnishing will last a lifetime and increase your property’s value, so buy the best you can afford. Custom-made plantation shutters are a great choice both for curb appeal and elegance inside the home. Ask the experts at Empire Window Furnishings to help you select the best product for your home.
