How much do Plantation Shutters cost?

Make no mistake.  Plantation Shutters can add value to your home.  They are often mentioned in advertising by real estate agents as a feature of homes. They are a premium product that can add value to your home as well as be fantastic insulation in both Summer and Winter. 

There are some companies that advertise a square metre price on shutters to hook you in.   Apart from obvious quality and brand variables there are other costs involved including installation, certain framing, tracking and access.  A decent quality plantation shutter can cost between $400 and $500 a square metre including everything. There are huge quality variances in Shutters. Particularly PVC. Some of the really cheap ones are not treated with UV protection (which you think would be obvious for something that is going to be sitting in a window).  Some are hollow and made of inferior quality. Some are brought in from overseas and then glued together.  The first sign of a hot Summers day or a window that faces the hot western afternoon sun and the shutters may yellow, or warp.

If you are serious about planation shutters it is best to get an on site inspection and quote. They are one of the more expensive window furnishing and you want to get it right.  

I have a sliding door, will that work with Shutters?

Yes.  But you have a few choices to make.  Sliding Shutters move along on a track.  The track can carry the weight on the bottom or the top. (we prefer it to hold it on the bottom, but its your choice). The type of track will depend on your floor covering.  Will it be going on carpet or a hard floor?  There are different options for both.  

The next choice you need to make is how many panels you would like sliding across.  Most people have two tracks and slide the panels along.  However if your opening is extra wide, the panels may not be wide  enough as many panels having a maximum width of 900mm.  We have options around this and can discuss it with you on site. 

The last choice is how you would like the blades to be when you open and close the shutter.  Would you like the lourve blades to be in the open position or the closed position when you sllide the shutters open and closed.  

If the blades are in the close position then the Plantation Shutters will protrude less into the room.  However, you need to remember to close the shutter lourves every time you want to open and close the shutter.  This can be a little tricky with young children around.  We have a sliding shutter configuration on display in the showroom and can show you how that works. 

Where are the Shutters Made?

Most PVC or Synthetic Shutters are imported these days.  Shutters are a labour intensive product and the Australian made ones can often add up to double the cost.

However, there are definately better quality versions and brands of imported Plantation Shutters. At Premier Shades we have access to a competitively priced Australian made Aluminium Shutters as well as various brands of imported Basswood, Painted Basswood, PVC, Synthetic, and Cedar Plantation Shutters. We have most of them on display in in our showroom at Wyoming.

 As an independant business ( we are not part of any franchise, carpet chain, rug chain, etc) we can buy whatever brand or qualty we want.  We have access to many brands and qualities and have found really realiable imported Shutter products and companies to deal with. Our staff are constantly getting trained in the latest trends in Shutters and our customers often remark to us that we were the only ones who seemed to know what was going on.   


Why Choose a PVC Synthetic Shutter over a Wooden Shutter?

  • Synthetic PVC Shutters are ideal for wet areas. Particularly Kitchens and Bathrooms. 
  • Many Synthetic PVC Plantation Shutters have extended warranties up to 25 years. (Timber is usually around 5 years)
  • Some PVC Synthetic Window Shutters are cheaper than Timber, but be careful! There are serious quality issues on some (see below)


PVC Thermopoly shutters provide excellent insualtion, filter outside noise and some have up to 25 years warranty

Is there better Quality PVC Synthetic Window Shutters?

Some of the cheaper PVC Shutters are not coated in the correct UV stabiliser to withstand hot windows. They may warp or yellow in the hot sun.

Some franchisee suppliers in carpet companies and rug companies are locked into just 1 brand, beware if they tell you all PVC Shutters are the same - they are not.

Beware, Plantation Shutters sold by out of area and out of mobile vans. We have heard terrible stories of bad quality and no back up services, even if they have a glossy brochure.

At Premier Shades we mainly supply a premium PVC Synthetic Plantation Shutter - Thermopoly 25 as we have had very few issues with quality

At Premier Shades we can also get access to cheaper PVC Plantation Shutters. 

If price is your main consideration, we will advice you the fors and against of each product so you can decide.

Often the cheaper PVC has limited width capacity.  You may need to do more panels of shutters to fit your window.  Just check first. 

We have many of the PVC Plantation Shutters on display in our showroom,

They are displayed in either panels or actually fitted to windows. Come take a look and compare the difference. 

Premier Shades fit quality PVC Synthetic shutters within a range of budgets with excellent after sale service
