Plantation Shutters

We have available a selection of window plantation shutters that are suited for both indoor and outdoor uses here at Sophie’s Blinds in Melbourne at our Springvale showroom.

Plantation Shutters are a solid frame, holding within it horizontal or vertical panels that are referred to as louvers.

These louvers can be fixed or operable, although in most cases operable is preferred for internal window coverings. Interior shutters usually hinge on either side of the window opening, and swing inwards to allow access to the window or to allow light to enter the room.

The rotating slats open and close to enable light control, visibility and airflow. Plantation Shutters are described using different terms such as traditional shutters, Californian shutters or Plantation shutters. Full height shutters can be made with a horizontal divider rail which separates the upper and lower portions of the shutter.

Basswood Plantation Shutters

Basswood is a stable and reliable interior timber shutter, and is the most widely used material for shutters in the global market.

Classified as a hardwood, Basswood come from the tilia family of trees and basswood can be known as linden.

Basswood shutters can be used for both inside or outside your home. This particular type of window covering is much more durable than other types of wooden shutters.

An advantage of using basswood shutters is its versatility and availability in different sizes. The blades within the shutters can be made into different widths which will give you a range of choices that will best suit your room.
