What’s the best material for Australian plantation shutters?
Here at Half Price Blinds online, our plantation shutters are available in two different materials: basswood timber and aluminium. Aluminium shutters are a low-maintenance, lightweight option that can give your home a stylish look. These modern shutters are best suited to rooms of the home that are exposed to moisture, such as the bathroom or kitchen, as aluminium is resistant to cracking, warping and peeling. For more reasons why you should choose these shutters check out the blog.
On the other hand, basswood timber shutters offer an inviting and luxurious alternative. Wood is a natural, raw material that can bring warmth to any room, so we recommend basswood shutters for rooms such as the bedroom, office or living room.
Why buy interior and exterior shutters?
Indoor shutters and outdoor shutters are elegant, durable and best of all, practical. Throughout the day, adjust the angle of the window slats of the shutters to increase light and airflow. Or, keep the slats closed to create an extra layer of insulation over your windows.
