Outdoor Shutters: 5 Reasons to Include Shutters in your Budget

Forget a hot tub! Aluminium outdoor shutters are one of the best backyard value-adds you can buy. Featuring a unique combination of style, strength and security, shutters will elevate the appearance, functionality and even resale value of your home!

Why buy outdoor plantation shutters for your home

  1. Forefront of style

    Unlike other styles of exterior blinds and shutters, our aluminium plantation shutters are timeless. The stacked horizontal louvres add that stylish finishing touch your window needs, without becoming the focal point of the space. Whether you own a character home or reside in a more recent build, plantation shutters make the perfect match.

  2. Easily control privacy, light and airflow

    One of the greatest things about outdoor shutters is the flexibility they offer when it comes to privacy, light and breeze control. Our aluminium shutters are manufactured without a clunky and cumbersome control bar. Instead, they are operated by manual adjustments of the blades/louvres.

    Open the louvres to increase light and airflow inside your home or in your outdoor entertaining area, or close to increase privacy and keep cooler breezes out.

  3. Safe and secure

    Got children or pets in your household? With outdoor aluminium shutters installed, it will ease at least some of your household safety concerns. As mentioned above, our window shutters are operated by adjusting the blades/louvres, meaning zero chains, wands or cords are required. While all of our products are designed to meet international child safety standards, you can’t get much safer than a window treatment that has no hanging devices.

    Window shutters are also a great way to improve security around your home. Once installed to your external window faces, plantation shutters create an additional protective barrier that may deter any neighbourhood crooks looking for an easy way in.

  4. Unmatched durability

    In addition to being both child and pet friendly, aluminium shutters are also as durable as they come. Unlike wooden shutters, aluminium shutters won’t bend, warp, crack, chip, buck or bow when exposed to moisture or heat.

    This makes aluminium plantation shutters a particularly popular choice for alfresco and patio areas, which are frequently exposed to the elements and wear and tear that indoor blinds or shutters don’t face. For additional peace of mind, our outdoor shutters also come with a two-year warranty.

  5. They add value to your home

    After reading through this list, there should be no doubt in your mind as to why outdoor plantation shutters are such a great value add. The key to their value as a window treatment mostly comes from the aluminium that they’re made from. Our aluminium shutters are created using lightweight (but astonishingly strong) aluminium, meaning they look almost identical to their wooden counterparts, but they last much longer. As far as good investments go, outdoor plantation shutters are a no-brainer.

Quick Guide to Buying Outdoor Shutters
