Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters for Shaped Windows

Windows come in all shapes and sizes. From traditional squares or rectangles to semi-circles and triangles, the shape of a window can really add a lot of character to a house. One great way to add a bit of style and functionality to an oddly shaped window is to choose a decorative window covering. Plantation shutters are a great option for oddly shaped windows because they are easily designed to fit any shape or size.

What Are Plantation Shutters?

Plantation shutters are a type of window covering that is usually made of wood but can also be made of man-made PVC. They are made up of wider slats or louvres that can be opened or closed in a similar manner to Venetian blinds. However, these louvres are much sturdier and more aesthetically pleasing and they don’t spring up and down like blinds do.

Why Choose Plantation Shutters For Shaped Windows?

No matter what type of window you have in your home, plantation shutters are fitted to give you the option of blocking out more light. That means that the slats are specifically cut to measure. So if you have a window that is shaped like an octagon, it will be easier to fit plantation shutters to it than any other blind or window covering. Each slat is measured out precisely to fit the measurements of your window.

Plantation shutters, especially when made of solid wood, can be manufactured in two or three panels that can fold back into the window recess or open out. This allows them to completely cover the whole window.

Adding Unique Aesthetics

Even in normal rectangle windows, plantation shutters are a seriously striking and elegant addition. They would be a lovely decorative accessory to a unique looking window. When plantation shutters are closed, they provide a warm look combined with privacy and protection from the elements. When they are open, they give you a sense of spacious design with access to exterior views. They also provide an almost unreal ability to direct ambient light into a room, which can only be enhanced by a uniquely shaped window.

Increase the Value of Your Home

Because plantation shutters are so durable, elegant and sought after to begin with, they are sure to add value to your home. These shutters are also great in Australia because they often provide more than just control over ventilation and sunlight, but also a degree of UV protection and insulation.

Plantation shutters are also low maintenance and can help improve your sleep. All of these qualities definitely increase the value of your home, but what will really impress people is how these stylish and functional shutters are so easily fitted to any style of window.

If you are struggling to find the right window covering for your oddly shaped windows, plantation shutters may just be the solution for you. Get in touch with the experts at EcoShade Solutions in Sydney to schedule a measure and quote.

Would recommend to family friends. Have had blinds, shutters and sliding door shutter installed start of 2018, so year and a half, quality product and great no fuss service. Had a minor issue with the track for my sliding door shutter the other day, and the Ecoshades team were very quick to respond, come over to inspect and make the necessary minor repair. After sales service fantastic.read more

When aesthetic is critical, when you are looking for perfection, a clean installation, quality products, and you need attention to detail, Ecoshades tick all the boxes. Each member of the team have always been very professional and have gone above and beyond to make sure the 30 roller blinds we needed were adapted to each room. Much appreciated too, the fact that Ecoshade organised the delivery in 2 phases in order to work around the other fit-out deliverables. We are very happy with the end result. Thank you the Ecoshade Solutions team! Highly recommended.read more

Had 2 large and one small set of shutters installed by Ecoshade and I am very pleased with the result. Th shutters themselves are exactly what we wanted and the advice they provided on product selection was spot on. The rooms have been transformed. Pricing was very reasonable, installation was fast and neat and a minor issue with one of the panels was dealt with quickly and efficiently by prompt after sale service. Recommended and would use again.read more
