Plantation Shutters

Choosing the Right Shutters for You

Every person, home, and room has a different style, and when you’re choosing window shutters you want to make sure what you select suits that vibe. This quick guide will help you assess what works best for your home.

Choosing a Shutter Style

Cafe-Style Shutters

These shutters cover only the lower part of windows and have a quaint, rural feel. They offer a lot of light, but only a little privacy. Because they are smaller than other shutters, these shutters can be an affordable option, but you’ll need to think about what to do with the top of the window.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters come as one-piece panels and are probably the most versatile option for shutters. These shutters suit almost any aesthetic, but they are especially great for traditional or period homes and rooms. Plantation shutters also offer maximum privacy and flexibility. EcoShade Solutions has a great range of the best timber, basswood, and PVC plantation shutters in Sydney.

Tier-On-Tier Shutters

These shutters have separately adjustable top and bottom panels, allowing you to open either panel or their slats independently from the each other. They offer great privacy and flexibility and suit traditional or period homes.

Solid Shutters

Solid shutters are perfect for a traditional French feel. They are either completely solid and need to be folded back or come as a combination of a solid lower panel and a slatted upper panel. The latter option means you can keep them shut and still let in some light.

Timber or PVC Shutters?

These days, PVC shutters look almost identical to wooden shutters, but they still lack the feel and atmosphere of real wood. However, they are waterproof, which makes them the best choice for steamy rooms or houses where dampness is a problem. Wooden shutters are perfect everywhere else, especially if you want a traditional feel.

Which Colour Shutter Should I Go For?

Choosing which colour shutters will best suit your existing decor very subjective – there really are no hard and fast rules! Just use the existing colours in your room and the purpose of the room as a guide. Just like a boldly-coloured lampshade, a shutter in a bright colour will reflect its tones into the room. This is the perfect chance for you to brighten up a dark room with sunshine yellow shutters or to mute an over-bright space with a paler, cooler shade.

At EcoShade Solutions, we have a fantastic range of colours available, and we offer free home consultations to help you decide which colour will work best in your house. Contact us today to learn more.

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

From go to whoa, our experience with Ecoshade Solutions was seamless. Their customer-focused process starts with an initial free design consultation, then proceeds to formal quotation and ends with expert installation. We couldn’t be happier and will be recommending them to family and friends. Thanks Ecoshade Solutions for making our home fresher and brighter.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
