Indoor Plantation Shutters

Plantation Shutters Perth

Plantation shutters in bedroomFor an elegant, practical solution to dressing your windows and sliding doors, take a look at what plantation shutters can offer. Indoor shutters lend a distinctive style to your décor. Looking just as good from the outside as the inside, they create a stunning first impression of your home. They provide a naturally lit space and they’re incredibly energy efficient. Adjusting the blades upward casts more light across the whole room. Sunlight filtered downward can help reduce glare on the TV or a computer screen – perfect light control.

Available in two designs – Amalfi lightweight timber shutters and Sentosa faux wood PVC shutters – our Perth plantation shutters will be among the best choices you make for your home. We’ve got options for all tastes and budgets.

From a practical point of view, while they are not designed for total light blockout, timber shutters allow you full control over how much light you let in your home as well as privacy levels. Interior window shutters also help maintain a constant temperature in your home, no matter what the weather outside, providing shade in the blasting Perth summer and warmth in the winter. Professionally installed shutters will help eliminate drafts on those colder nights, too.

These wooden shutters differ from outdoor aluminium plantation shutters which you can find here.

And one of the best things about them is that they are easy to keep clean. A simple wipe with a damp cloth is about all you ever need to do. Boardwalk also has an extensive range of plantation shutter blinds suitable for wet areas in your home including laundries and bathrooms.

Beyond this, we go that extra mile and test all our products beyond normal industry standards to make sure we continue to offer the best quality window treatment and provide you with additional peace of mind.

Facts about Boardwalk Shutters Products

Insulation Properties

In our harsh climate, shutters with higher insulating properties can significantly reduce your heating and cooling bills.

Water Tolerance

Leaving windows open can be an issue for internal shutters. The higher the product rating the more tolerant it is to moisture. This refers to the material and does not include magnets or magnet plates.

Sag Resistance

Lighter weight timbers offer the best panel strength in their joinery. PVC materials (even with reinforcing) are much heavier and more flexible than timber and are therefore more prone to sagging especially with wider panels. MDF (not sold by Boardwalk) is also heavy and more prone to sagging and reducing the aesthetic appeal of your home. We should note that we do not sell Basswood shutters either.

Forest Stewardship Council

We value the environment and therefore ensure that all our timbers are sourced from sustainable plantations. This is certified by the world’s leading authority (FSC).

Paint Tested

The paints used on our products have been tested to comply with various industry standards to ensure they contain no hazardous chemicals. This gives you additional peace of mind when used in your home.

Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Testing

Our PVC is tested to ensure VOC compliance.

Fire Retardancy

Our PVC shutter range is tested to ensure they are fire retardant.

Frequently asked questions about our internal shutters

What is the best material for plantation shutters?

This depends on where your shutters will be situated in your home. Do you have a bay window? Perhaps you need sliding shutters over a glass door? We have a solution for any window size and shape.

For wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundries, PVC shutters offer the best solution. They are the first choice to resist the moisture generated in these areas of the house. They can also be used throughout the home.

For your other rooms, a lightweight timber, such as the paulownia shutters are ideal. This stable, quality wood also has moisture-resistant properties while providing an elegant solution to covering any window in your home.

Plantation shutters in kitchen areaWhat shutters are suitable for wet areas?

We recommend faux wood PVC plantation shutters for this purpose. Their durable material means they will resist the constant moisture generated every day in rooms such as bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens.

This means you don’t need to worry about mould, mildew or your shutters warping. In the kitchen, they will resist spills and splashes from cooking. They will not be affected by bathroom steam and will resist the humidity of your laundry room.

Can I install internal shutters myself?

Boardwalk offers a full installation service on all our shutter blinds that is included in the price. This is all part of the service we offer here at Boardwalk to supply the most beautiful and practical shutters on the market.

How do I care for my internal timber shutters?

Your internal shutter blinds are quick and easy to care for – very low maintenance.

For timber shutters, you can wipe dust away with a clean, soft, and dry cloth on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, working from top to bottom. Once in a while, use a little wood polish applied on a soft cloth to nourish your shutters and keep them looking their best. For more information, see our blog post How to Clean Plantation Shutters.

Faux wood PVC shutters can be dusted with a dry or damp cloth according to the same schedule. If your shutters are used in the kitchen, once a month – or more often if required – you can wipe them with a solution of washing up liquid and hot water to remove oily residue.

Can indoor shutters cover a unique window shape?

Yes, these shutters are a versatile way to cover your unique windows perfectly. They can replace or complement your existing window dressing such as curtains or even external roller shutters.

Our shutter blinds are custom-manufactured, which means we can provide beautiful solutions to circles, arches, and other unusually shaped windows.
